Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Molineux Stadium will host Carabao Cup clash between Wolverhampton and Stoke City, the two teams who play in different competitions. The Premier League side did well to make it to the Europa League quarter-finals last term, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win their EFL Cup opener. It has to be noted, though, that pacey full-back Jonny is out of contention through injury.
The Potters, on the other hand, kicked off the new Championship campaign with a goalless draw with Millwall. Stoke City are eager to claim a major scalp in their Carabao Cup opener, but given their anything but good away record in the English second tier, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Wolves. When the two teams met in the FA Cup three years ago Wolverhampton defeated Stoke 2-0.
