Stoke vs Sunderland: top free betting tips
Sunderland aims to recapture their winning form against Stoke City in Round 12 of the EFL Championship on Saturday, 21 October. The Potters enter Bet365 Stadium after successive defeats against Premier League-relegated Southampton and Leicester City.
Match result prediction: Sunderland to win
Stoke City have defeated Sunderland in three of their last four H2H meetings. But the Potters have been dismal recently by losing four of their previous five fixtures. Stoke have also tasted three consecutive defeats at Bet365 Stadium before this game. On the other hand, Sunderland has won the previous three league outings away from the Stadium of Light consecutively. Therefore, we set Sunderland as our favourites to take three points in this game.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals
All of the previous five H2Hs of these two sides at Bet365 Stadium have finished with Under 2.5 Goals. Sunderland have found the back of the net eight times in their last five fixtures. But Stoke City have netted the ball just four times in the same number of games. Additionally, Sunderland have also claimed two clean sheets in their previous four games away from Stadium of Light.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Sunderland
Stoke City have failed to find the back of the net in three of their last four matches. The Potters’ defence has also been caught napping as they conceded multiple goals in three games during the aforestated period. On the other hand, Sunderland has rattled the net more than once in three of their last five home and away fixtures. The Black Cats have also claimed two clean sheets in their previous three league outings. Given these statistics, we predict a 0-2 lead for Sunderland at the end of the ninety minutes of this game.
Stoke vs Sunderland: form, recent games, and news
Stoke City visited league leaders Leicester City in the last game and tasted a 2-0 defeat. Kelechi Iheanacho opened the scoring in the 24th minute and Jamie Vardy extended the lead in the 79th minute. Head coach Alex Niel will have to contend with two fitness concerns in the squad ahead of the fixture against Sunderland.
The Black Cats dropped their winning sequence against Middlesbrough by getting hammered with a 0-4 defeat. But after recording six victories in 11 rounds, Sunderland has managed to stand in the fourth position in the standings. The team’s preparation is severely affected by four injury-related absences in the squad.
