Stoke vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: Bet365 Stadium (Stoke on Trent).
Sheffield United has already qualified for Premier League and did it in style as well. They are sure of a top-two finish, and thus took a direct route to the top division, rather than go through the tedious route of the playoffs. But, the team has the chance to further improve their glory. Topper Norwich is just three points above and has an inferior goal difference.
Since they too have already qualified to the Premier League, and due to them having a comparatively tougher fixture – if Norwich loses, and Sheffield wins this match-day, the latter could take the title. What a way it’d be for them to arrive in the big league!
Considering Stoke is their opponent, who was winless in their last five ties, Sheffield fans are dreaming.
