Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters respond from Huddersfield reverse?

Michael O’Neill’s Stoke City have started their Championship campaign with a win and two defeats. They were also beaten in the first round of the Carabao Cup by EFL League One side Morecambe.

On the opening weekend, Stoke were comfortably beaten by Millwall. They bounced back with a home success over Blackpool in game two, but City have gone on to lose two league and cup matches in a row. After a cup loss to Morecambe, the Potters were beaten 3-1 by Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium last weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Middlesbrough to score first

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1248 GMT, Tuesday 16 August)

Stoke will be desperate to get a win here after losing three of their opening four matches of the new season. The home victory is currently priced at 17/10.

Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro leave the Potteries with three points?

Middlesbrough narrowly missed out on a play-off berth last season, finishing in seventh. Chris Wilder did a remarkable job at the Riverside Stadium after taking over from Neil Warnock halfway through the campaign.

Middlesbrough will be gunning for a top-six spot at the very least this term, though they have made a slow start. Boro drew with West Bromwich Albion in game one before back-to-back league and cup losses to Queens Park Rangers and Barnsley. However, they did bounce back with a battling 2-2 home draw with Sheffield United last weekend.

Boro are unbeaten in three against City, winning two and drawing one. Stoke’s last success over the North Yorkshire outfit came in December 2020 when Nathan Collins scored in a 1-0 home win.


Key Facts – Stoke City vs Middlesbrough Betting Tip

  • Stoke have taken just three points from a possible nine

Matt Crooks scored twice when these two last met. The midfielder was also on target in Boro’s 3-2 loss at QPR recently. Crooks is priced at 5/1 to score anytime in this one.
