Stoke vs Brighton – Preview, and Prediction

Stoke vs Brighton – Even with more injury news, Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton played well against a quality West Ham outfit on Tuesday.

On that particular occasion, the teams drew goallessly at London Stadium, sharing the spoils, but the Seagulls’ outstanding all-around performance earned them all three points.

Alphonse Areola’s incredible performance—the French goalkeeper made eight saves in the opening match of 2024—was the only thing keeping Brighton from winning in the nation’s capital.

Positively, it was Brighton’s third straight game without a loss. They will aim to continue this run when they go to Stoke on Saturday afternoon to play in the FA Cup third round.

In the last twelve games across all competitions, Stoke City has only managed one victory. They have lost their last six home games in the championship.

Six points separate the Potters in the safe zone and Sheffield Wednesday in 19th position in the Championship rankings right now.

However, head coach Steven Schumacher is pleased with his team’s opening-day performance. Monday afternoon’s tie at Bet365 Stadium between the Potters and Ipswich Town was goalless.

Stoke vs Brighton – Betting Analysis

In this encounter, Brighton will be going against the trend because, in the previous 20 matches, they have only defeated Stoke twice by a combined total of two points.

It’s interesting to note that one of these two victories occurred in February of last year, when the Seagulls defeated Stoke 1-0 at this stadium during the FA Cup fifth round.

Within the most recent head-to-head matchups that these two adversaries have played against one another, nobody of them has scored three or more goals in either of those meetings.

Despite multiple issues with injured players, Brighton has far more quality in their ranks, and we predict them to easily defeat Stoke in this match.

What are the top odds for the game?

In terms of the bookies’ odds in the full-time result market, victory for Stoke City is available for 6.4, a wager on the draw is 4.95, and betting on the winner to be Brighton & Hove Albion gets you 1.54. They are the best returns that can be secured at the moment.
