England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 5 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET

As the best and worst of the competition take on each other, there’s not much to doubt about the impending outcome. Even more so, when it’s noted that the current topper has been allotted the home advantage too. Theoretically, this should be the easiest fixture to predict this season in the Championship.

Swansea vs Stoke City: Prediction
Steve Cooper’s men have lost just twice in the last 24 fixtures, and this defeat had come against Watford, a Premier League team. Moreover, they had begun their 2019-20 campaign in style, with an eight-game unbeaten run, of which seven were wins.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a winless run of ten ties and were so in 13 of their previous 14. They had also lost five of their prior six match-ups. In addition, they are also winless in their former five road trips.
Importantly, the Swans are the current table-toppers and are in contention to get promoted at the end of the season, whereas their opposite number is placed dead-last in the table, and is yet to post a victory on the board.
Finally, at this venue, over the years, Cooper’s men have shown superiority in h2h encounters as well.
Henceforth, we can easily count on the home team to convincingly come out on top this Saturday.
