Stoke City vs Birmingham City Prediction
Stoke City has scored only one goal in their three league appearances so far this term. With just three points from the lone win in the campaign, the host is not at their best in the schedule. However, the Potters will host on the back of a 0-1 win on the road against Preston in the last Championship fixture.
Birmingham, on the other hand, has climbed to the 8th spot while the host remains at the same spot in the league this season too in Championship. They are on an unbeaten run in the campaign, with a double draw at the end of their league schedule.
The Blues have scored only 2 goals in their three league clashes so far this season. They will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home against Rotherham in the previous encounter in the schedule. With their troubled away form in the campaign, the visitor doesn’t pose much threat to the home team.
The tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be a suitable choice in the clash, as we can expect a couple of goals at least when the Potters are hosting the game. Since the match is sizing to be anyone’s game, the double chance favoring both teams will probably be the best bet for the punters.
