The hosts took a beating from Leeds United in the opening round. Two goals in the first half secured a nice and comfortable lead for United. Both teams find the net in the second to round up the full time score of 3-1.

Stoke will be eager to set things right after the defeat. They have the opportunity at home against Brentford but the team has to take advantage of that otherwise they may settle for another disappointment.

Brentford had exactly the opposite start. The team hosted newly promoted Rotherham and gave them a tough start in this level of competition. They scored 5 goals before losing a bit of concentration near the end for the full time result of 5-1.

Brentford were amongst the good sides the previous campaign but always a bit short from the playoffs. The team play pleasant attacking football which pleases most fans but tends to get caught up napping at the back.

Stoke City vs Brentford: Head-to-head

  • Stoke have won just 1 out of their last 15 league games including the previous season
  • Brentford saw 14 games under 2.5 goals in their 23 away fixtures last season
  • Brentford have won their last 3 meetings with Stoke with a clean sheet
  • Things change at Bet365 stadium as Stoke have won all 3 games here but that dates back to 2001

Stoke City vs Brentford: Predictions

Stoke looked a bit clueless in their opening game. Not so sure whether Leeds were just too good for them or just the Potters played bad.

Anyways Stoke didn’t look so sharp in preseason either while Brentford showed potential last game.

The Bees will be again in the top half mix and will be looking to avoid defeat this round.
