Sheffield Wednesday vs Stoke City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 28 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
The Owls are placed 23rd in a table of 24 teams, and have so far not shown any signs of form this season. Only two other teams have scored fewer goals than them in the second division, and they have been a total disaster in home fixtures all through 2020-21.
And to further complicate their problems, the federation had deducted six points from their tally. All indication point to the fact that this act has affected the morale of the players by a huge deal.
Meanwhile, the Potters have been one of the best teams in the Championship this season, and are currently vying for a playoff spot.
Moreover, their few losses so far have come against some of the best teams in the league.
Furthermore, they have also been the better team in h2h encounters over the past decade, and particularly so in the recent years.
Likely, expect Stoke to dominate proceedings on the pitch this Saturday.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Stoke: Prediction
Tony Pulis’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road by Swansea. In the meantime, O’Neil’s men lost 2-3 at home the past game week, against Norwich. However, note that Norwich are the toppers of the table, and the most probable contender to lift the title.
Going on, the Owls were winless in 11 of their preceding 13 overall match-ups, and they had remained so in 20 of the former 24 fixtures as well. They also had a total of just two wins at home from their past 19 appearances here.
In addition, they are placed in the relegation zone, whereas their opposite number are gunning for a promotional spot.
In addition, the Potters were unbeaten in 19 of their last 24 overall games, and on the road, they were invincible in nine of their last eleven fixtures. Of these 11, eight were wins as well.
Finally, they also have a good h2h record against this opponent over the past two decades.
Taking into account these observations, expect Stoke to have the upper hand this weekend.
