Stoke City vs Blackburn Head-to-head

  • The Rovers have just a win over this side in 5 previous meetings.
  • 4 of the 5 preceding fixtures saw a score line of 2 or fewer goals.
  • 6 of the last 7 h2h matches had an outright winner.
  • The visitors have failed to take any points from 5 of their last 7 trips to this venue.

Analysis

After a mid-table finish in the preceding season, Stoke has become a team to be reckoned with this time around. The team is currently 6th in the Championship with 31 points and could have done much better, if not for their 5 matches winless streak with 4 consecutive defeats in October, despite the team starting the season with 5 wins and a draw.

The Riversiders started the season with a run of 9 games losing just once in those fixtures. The team has since suffered a few significant defeats, the biggest among them coming against Fulham 0-7 at home earlier in the month. The club is currently 7th in the league, just a point behind their opponents for this weekend.

Stoke City vs Blackburn Prediction

The Potters have lost just once in the league at home, with convincing results over other top clubs in the division. They should take all 3 points from a side that has registered just a couple of victories in the season. The visitors however have scored the third-most goals in the division and are unlikely to not enter the scoresheet.

The average score line in the last 5 games for the hosts and visitors is 2.20 and 4.00 respectively. I would be amazed if any fewer than 3 goals were scored in the fixture.
