Tip Stoke - Bournemouth

Prediction published on October 17, 2021 at 6:02 PM - Modified on October 17, 2021 at 6:04 PM

Stoke City are keen on climbing back into the top three after their loss to Sheffield United, and when they host Championship leaders Bournemouth, three points will be their target. Stoke dropped to fifth on 21 points after the 2-1 loss as Bournemouth stayed three points clear at the top, with a 2-0 win over Bristol that placed them on 28 points. With just 10 minutes to go, Stoke blew a 1-0 lead against Sheffield and will hope to avoid a repeat here but their defending has been wanting. In the 12 Championship matches played, they’ve conceded 13 goals. The Sheffield loss was their third in the league this season and they go to this clash having managed just three clean sheets in the last 10. At home, in the Championship, Stoke have no loss; they’ve managed five wins in six matches, and have scored in each of the six.

Bournemouth narrowly missed out on promotion last season and they seem to have learnt their lesson. They will want to get the automatic slot this time and at the moment, they are on the right course, being the only unbeaten side in the Championship. They go to this game on a very strong footing, having won six of the last seven games in the league. Their win over Bristol in the last game served the third clean sheet in five matches and they’ve scored twice in three of their last five matches. Away from home in the Championship, Bournemouth have a fine run in defence, with five straight clean sheets and are unbeaten in six. In their last game against Stoke, they suffered a 2-0 loss. That was in the final round of matches last season and Bournemouth had already secured their place in the promotion playoffs. In the last six meetings between these two, Bournemouth have four wins.
