Our Prediction:

Leeds will win

Stoke – Leeds Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

Just which of these two will start their league campaign off with a victory? Both of these sides have been busy so far this summer. Leeds and Stoke have moved to sign new managers as they aim for a place in the Premier League next season. The pair have gone very differently about their summer recruitment on the pitch and in the dugout, which makes their live clash on Sunday seem like a massive occasion for both teams.

Were going with over 2.5 goals as our main tip, while were predicting a loss for a Stoke side who have lost four of their last five this summer. Bielsas 3-3-1-3 system is designed to get goals, but it will take some time for them to get used to it at the back. A 2-1 home win is our correct score prediction, as we see Leeds making a strong start. Stoke have signed talented attacking players at this level, and we expect them to cause problems for Leeds, who have conceded in five of six preseason friendlies. However, the hosts are likely to swarm a Stoke defence which is still getting up to speed, so were backing a high scoring clash here.

Bruno Martins Indi had been deemed a victim to the extreme recolution in Portos central defensive department, having fallen out of favour with Nuno Espirito Santo and even being punished with a place in Portos reserves. Bruno Martins Indi spent most of his career playing as centre-back, but he can equally fill in on various positions in defence.

Summer signing Afobe is likely to make his Stoke City debut against Leeds United. The Whites were having their ups and downs in the 2017/2018 Championship campaign and it is more than obvious that they do not have enough quality to secure promotion to the English top flight. Against all odds, Stoke City failed to secure the Premier League survival in the last season finale. However, the club chiefs managed to keep hold of a number of first-team regulars and the Potters, meaning that the Potters are capable of securing a quick return to the Premier League. Nonetheless, seeing that Stoke City were struggling in pre-season, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from Sundays football game. The Potters are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign, but they will have to do it without key player Xherdan Shaqiri, who joined Liverpool earlier this summer.

Stoke City vs Leeds United Head-To-Head Record

De club was founded in the year 1863 and next to Notts County FC the club from Stoke is the oldest professional football club worldwide. Stoke City FC (named Stoke FC until 1925) is an English football club from the city Stoke-on-Trent (located in the north of England). Currently Stoke City is playing in the Premier League. Different signs of Stoke City show that the club is founded in 1868. The home games of Stoke City are hosted in the Britannia Stadium which holds a capacity for 29 000 spectators.

The Elland Road outfit are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and seeing that the Stoke City suffered a dip in form, away win should be considered. The Potters experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Brentford and considering that they are on a five-match winless run in all competitions ahead of Saturdays football match, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the league leaders. A man to watch in Marcelo Bielsas side will be Kemar Roofe, who scored his 14th goal of the season in the 2-0 victory over the Rams. Leeds United will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Derby County when they take on Stoke City at Bet365 Stadium on Matchday 28. The Whites are on the right track to return to the Premier League, but coach Marcelo Bielsa must warn his men against complacency as the season is quite long.
