Swansea – Stoke City, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SWANSEA - STOKE
Swansea performed very well in the last two games and took points against Brentford and Boro at home, and now they have a third consecutive home game. It is good for the swans to return to the right path, but they have had too much fluctuation during the season. Certainly, there will be a lot of reforms in the team in the summer to show a real fight for the top. We have seen that with good management and a lot of work this can be done by teams like Huddersfield, Brighton and many others have already entered the elite.
Stoke plays the most defensive football in the league right now. They made four consecutive zero draws before defeating Blackburn Rovers in the last round by 1-0. And they have 12 consecutive games with Under 2.5 goals. Here, however, Stoke will face a team that can overcome them and is in good shape and plays offensive. For potters, the season is not very different to that of swans and they are in the 15th place with no chance of anything more or less.
We look forward to finally seeing a goal scoring game featuring Stoke. There are not much statistics to be found here, but because of Swansea style, we expect them to score a goal and open the game. Overall almost always Stoke and Swansea have had many goals or at least 2. 20 of the last 22 matches between the two teams ended with at least 2 goals and most of them had more. That’s what we expect now. A new zero draw is excluded as an option. Prediction Over 2.0 – Asian Goal Line at 1.68.
- Swansea scored 8 goals in its last 3 home games
