Stoke City vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 16 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Bet365 Stadium.
The Owls have been showing extraordinary will in avoiding the trap of relegation. The Federation had deducted six points from their tally at the start of the season, and still, they need a surplus of just one point to get over the cut-off.
They have recently improved their form even more, and have been scoring goals in better frequency.
Despite their position in the table, they have the upper hand this Tuesday at the Bet365 Stadium, especially since they are pitted against the struggling Potters.
Michael O’Neill’s men are possibly the worst team in the whole league at the moment, based on recent form. In fact, they are one of the only four squads in the contest to stay winless in the past five match-days in the Championship.
They have been letting in goals in plenty, and even at home their performances have not been up to the mark.
Likely, expect Sheffield Wednesday to have the edge this Tuesday.
Stoke vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-head (h2h)

Stoke vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
The Potters lost 4-1 on the road the last match-day, against Norwich. In the meantime, the Owls registered a 2-0 win at home the past game week, against Wycombe.
Going on, O’Neil’s men are on an 11-game winless run, and they remained so in 14 of their preceding 15 fixtures. They are also winless at home in their past six appearances, and four of these were defeats.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in eight of their former eleven games, and they had also won six of their preceding nine fixtures.
In addition, Thompson’s men also have a good h2h record against this foe over the years.
Considering these observations, expect Sheffield Wednesday to dominate proceedings this Tuesday.
