Premier League Preview for Stoke City v Cardiff City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Both Stoke and Cardiff are coming into this match on the back of sizeable losses. Stoke lost 4-0 away to Everton while Cardiff went down 3-0 at home to Arsenal. They are also both very close in scoring statistics with Stoke scoring 12 and allowing 18 and Cardiff scoring 11 and allowing 20. They are also level on points with 13, but Stoke just ahead in 16th place on goal difference.
There are a lot of similarities between these two clubs and many of it concerns difficulty scoring goals at times and being largely inconsistent this season. Neither team has managed to string together more than a few results at a time.
My prediction is for a draw between the two. Stoke could have a slight edge being the home team where they are 2-3-1 while scoring five goals and conceding three, including three clean sheets. Cardiff’s away record has been 1-2-3 where they have scored four and allowed 10 with one clean sheet.
