Stoke will win

Stoke – Bristol City Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

Nathan Baker has yet to make his debut for England national team, but he has three caps for England U21 team. Nathan Baker was born in Worcester, England on April 23, 1991 and he currently plays for Bristol City in the Championship. After ending his loan spell with the Robins, he signed a permanent deal with the club on July 28, 2017 for an undisclosed fee.

Bristol City have found form in the Championship, and as a result theyre on the verge of the top six. In fact, the Robins sit just four points shy of top spot, the place Stoke expected to be in by this stage. However, theyre not far from the play-offs after two straight wins, with the Championship as tight as ever. However, the Potters are in 17th, and on recent form their poor season could be about to get even worse. Their start this season hasnt had the positivity of last term, when they were the surprise package in the early stages of the campaign.

Predicted Lineups

Nathan Jones is a manager under pressure after just one point from six games and he must hope his board stay patient as they have the toughest looking schedule of any side in the division over the next six. Stoke lost 2-1 at Birmingham just before the international break for their third successive defeat and the fifth in their last six.

He struggled for results in the second half of last term, while things have gone from bad to worse this time around. With five defeats in six, the Potters are surprise favourites going into this clash. Stoke were title favourites last term, but a terrible return to the second tier saw Nathan Jones brought in to turn around their fortunes.

All three visitors to this stadium have gone over 1.5 goals and given the goal threat City carry we think they can do so here. Back them to do so and then have a little interest on them to go over 2.5 goals. We could not put anyone off the visitors and the draw in the double chance but are happy enough to get with the Robins in goal markets. Bookmakers make the home side to win this fixture which even allowing for home advantage seems a little strange.

The Robins rolled over Derby County in the Championship at the weekend and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they take on Stoke City in yet another home fixture. A victory over Bristol City would help Stoke City regain confidence and we predict that the visitors are going to take Tuesdays match very seriously. Bristol City set up a meeting with the Premier League side by beating the likes of Plymouth Argyle and Watford, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Mark Hughes troops. The Potters have been having their ups and downs at the start of the new Premier League campaign and they aim to put an end to their three-game winless run. Ashton Gate Stadium will host Tuesdays football match between Bristol City and Stoke City, who face each other in the Europa League round 3.

Stoke vs Bristol City Stats

The Robins are unbeaten in the Championship since an opening day loss to Leeds, which has pushed them into the top six. This trip seems like the perfect chance for Lee Johnsons side to build on that strong start, even if they arent considered favourites for this clash. Meanwhile, Bristol City are sitting in fifth, with their playoff push looking good.
