Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues make it six points from six?

Lee Bowyer took his Birmingham City boys to Bramall Lane to face Slavisa Jokanovic’s Sheffield United last weekend. The Blues went to Yorkshire as the underdogs but left with a massive three points. Maxime Colin’s early goal gave Birmingham an opening weekend 1-0 away win.

Birmingham could go under the radar this season and push for a play-off place. Bowyer did a great job in keeping the Midlands club up last season, but City will be aiming much higher than 18th this time around. They could be one of the dark horses.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

(odds taken 0715 GMT, Friday 13 August)

Birmingham head into this Saturday’s home game as the slight favourites with the bookies. At the time of writing, the Blues are priced at 6/4 to pick up the win in front of their home supporters.

Stoke City Preview – Will the Potters return home with a positive result?

Stoke City were involved in a real ding-dong battle with Reading on the opening weekend. Three goals in three first-half minutes gave the Potters a 2-1 lead at the break. The Royals levelled things up on the hour mark, but Sam Surridge had the last laugh, netting the winner five minutes from time.

Stoke have been tipped to have a fine season under the popular Michael O’Neill. The former Northern Ireland boss steadied the ship after arriving at the bet365 Stadium, but City will be looking to kick on this year.

Birmingham City vs Stoke City Betting Advice

When these two teams last locked horns, Birmingham picked up a 2-0 home win thanks to a Lukas Jutkiewicz brace. In the reverse match at the bet365 Stadium back in October, the pair played out a 1-1 draw.

Birmingham have a decent record in this fixture in recent times, winning four of the last six. In contrast, Stoke have picked up just one victory from their last eight league meetings with the Blues.


Key Facts – Birmingham City vs Stoke City Betting Tip

  • Birmingham took four points from last season’s meetings
  • Stoke have won just one of their last eight against the Blues
  • The Potters have not won at Birmingham since 1988


As we touched on, these two drew 1-1 in Stoke ten months ago, with Nick Powell’s late goal cancelling out Harlee Dean’s opener. We fancy another 1-1 stalemate between Birmingham and Stoke on Saturday, which you can get at 5/1.

Lukas Jutkiewicz was a thorn in Stoke’s side last season, netting both goals in Birmingham’s 2-0 win at St Andrew’s in April. 5/2 for Jutkiewicz to score anytime in this one is too good to turn down.
