Carlos Carvalhal left the team midway through the last season, but fans still have a dream to challenge the Premier League promotion.

Saturday’s clash with Stoke City could provide answers to whether it was only a lucky streak or Sheffield Wednesday have what it takes to continue the climb up the ladder.

The story is kind of opposite with the visitors who fell down to 18th place after a 2-1 loss to West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns in the previous round.

In Gary Rowett’s defense, his troops had quite a tricky schedule at the start of the season. They took just one point on three travels, but we have to mention the opposition involved the likes of Leeds United, Preston North End and WBA in the process.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Stoke City: Head-to-head

  • The two sides will take on each other for the first time since 20’15 when they met in the League Cup.
  • Stoke City picked up a comfortable 2-0 victory back then.
  • Their last league affair happened back in 2007/08 campaign.
  • None of past three head to head matches saw goals at both ends.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Stoke City: Prediction

The hosts may have won three on the bounce in the league, but we have to say they had a much easier schedule than the Potters. The quality is on Stoke’s side which is why we’ll skip home win bets here,

Instead, backing goals would be just the way to go here. The Potters were very easy to break down so far in the season. They allowed as many as seven goals in three away fixtures in the league, meaning the in-form Lucas Joao should have room to score a goal in his third straight appearance for the Owls.

The Portuguese forward notched three goals in last two games and is worth backing to keep the good form going and score anytime at the odds of 3.40.

The visitors also have deadly weapons in the final third in the likes of Benik Afobe, Peter Crouch and Bojan Krkic. The best of the betting options would thus be both teams to score at 1.72 odds.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Stoke City: Bet Tips

  • BTTS @ 1.72 (8/11)
  • Lucas Joao to score anytime @ 3.40 (12/5).
