West Bromwich host Stoke City this Monday in the matchday 28 of the Championship. The two teams have different ambitions in the league. The Baggies will try to defend their leadership (they have a one-point lead over Leeds), while Stoke is in 21st place, just one point ahead of the relegation zone.
West Bromwich lost just one of their last five games against Stoke. The Baggies won the only meeting between both teams this season (2-0) and playing at home they have won four of the last five h2h against Stoke. In the last five games across all competitions, only one of the West Bromwich matches produced more than 2.5 goals and three have witnessed goals from both sides. This season, West Bromwich scores an average of 1,78. Slaven Bilic's team comes to this match with just one victory in the last five games.
Stoke is struggling to escape from the dangerous zone of the Championship, something that only a win can guarantee at the end of matchday 28. The Potters arrive at The Hawthorns in a run of two straight games without a win, after a major triumph against Huddersfield (5-2). Stoke played 34 games this season and lost 17 (50%), a number that rises to 59% if we look at games away from their stadium. Stoke has an average of 1,29 goals scored and 1,41 conceded per match in 2019/20. In the last five games, they managed to get one clean sheet.
West Bromwich: Grady Diangana is injured
Stoke City: Ryan Shawcross is out of the game
We believe that WBA will confirm favoritism and will win at their stadium.
