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