Stoke City

These commands are very familiar to each other. The history of their face-to-face confrontations has 127 matches. The “lions” have 51 victories, whereas the “potters” have 34. Stoke City and Aston Villa crossed their paths in the League Cup once. Back then the victory went to Birmingham. The last time the “lions” beat the “potters” in the home arena was back in 2009!

Aston Villa

Aston Villa will play their first home match in the current CL draw. Earlier, in 2 consecutive rounds, the team played away. They managed to pass such rivals as Burton (1:3) and Bristol City (0:3). The Lions' top scorer in CL is striker Ollie Watkins, who has 2 scoring hits in 2 games.

In the Premier League, Villa is still unbeaten. But at the same time, the team played only 1 match. At the home arena, they managed to beat Sheffield with a score of 1:0. On September 28-th, a few days before the League Cup, Birmingham will face Fulham away in the championship.

In the last League Cup, Villa was not without problems at home in the round of 16, but still managed to get past Wolverhampton (2:1).

3 days after the game with Stoke, Villa will meet with Liverpool. Naturally, this match must be approached with fresh energy. Therefore, we think that Dean Smith should be expected to rotate in the Cup.

Stoke City

Stoke City is the most boring team that primarily tries to get results without thinking about the quality of football. In the League Cup in 3 matches, the “Potters” did not concede a single goal, but managed to score 2. Such rivals as Blackpool, Wolverhampton and Gillingham were passed. Definitely, victory over the “wolves” stands apart, because it is a fairly serious representative of the Premier League, claiming the highest places.

Stoke shows cautious football not only in the League Cup, but also in the Championship. In 3 rounds the team was able to score only 1 goal, with 2 conceded. They have 1 victory, 1 draw and 1 defeat. In all fights, the bottom total was less than 2.5. In addition, there was a bet on "both will score - no".

All performers are ready to play against Villa: there are no injured or disqualified players in the squad.


Despite the fact that bookmakers consider Villa as favorite, we don't think it will be easy for Birmingham. Firstly, they have not played so many matches this season and therefore there may be problems with the playing tone. Secondly, they have not been able to defeat Stoke for more than 10 years in their field. And thirdly, the “potters” are a terribly uncomfortable team that plays as close as possible, practically without leaving their penalty area.

We are not sure that the game will be effective. We suggest betting here on a total under 2.5.
