Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Bet365 Stadium when Stoke City and Brentford face each other in the Championship round 7. The Potters came from behind to share the spoils with Barnsley in midweek, with the team extending their unbeaten run in the league to four matches. When the two teams met at Bet365 Stadium in the last season finale Stoke defeated promotion-chasing Brentford, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s showdown.
The Bees are hungry for revenge, and given their displays in back-to-back wins over Coventry and Sheffield Wednesday, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. Collins is banned for the hosts, while Joe Allen remains in the recovery room. Experienced defender Ryan Shawcross will be assessed ahead of the kick-offs. The likes of Balcombe, Marcondes, and Norgaard are rated doubtful for the visitors, whereas Baptiste remains in the recovery room.
