Reason For Leeds vs Stoke City Predictions

  • Stoke have lost 20 of their last 30 visits to Leeds
  • Leeds have conceded once in their last five home games
  • The hosts have conceded fewer home goals in the league than any other side this term
  • Leeds have won to nil in 50% of their home games this season

Back to normality for Stoke?

The Championship’s incredible 22nd-place boost worked its magic again at the weekend. Stoke bounced back from consecutive losses to nil to beat Barnsley 4-0 on Saturday. Now every side who has started their game in 22nd place since the restart has immediately won. However, will that turnaround be incredibly short-lived as the Potters head to Leeds?

The hosts are bidding to take a step closer to the Championship title and a place in the Premier League with a victory this week. Leeds picked up a 3-1 victory at Blackburn on Saturday to stay top of the table, leaving them in pole position for a top-flight spot with only five matches to go. Given how close they are, Marcelo Bielsa’s men should be in no mood to entertain Stoke’s revival.

Potters’ away curse

Stoke are winless in their last six away games in the Championship (D3 L3), with their last victory on the road coming back in January against West Brom. They caught the Baggies out in that clash, but they meet a Leeds team who have lost only three times in 20 matches this season. Meanwhile, Stoke have suffered 12 defeats in their 20 away trips, which has left them with the third-worst away record in the division.

Their record is unlikely to improve in this clash. Stoke have won just two of their last 30 away games against Leeds in all competitions (W2 D8 L20), drawing 2-2 in the League Cup earlier this season before progressing on penalties. We don’t expect the hosts to be as lax for a league game here, with their defence giving little away in the Championship so far this season.

Visitors get little joy at Elland Road

Leeds have conceded just one goal in their last five Championship games at Elland Road (W4 D1) – indeed, they have conceded fewer goals in home games than any other side in the competition this season (14). They’ve won to nil in half of their home games, something they’ll look to continue against a Stoke side who have failed to score in 40% of their away trips.

We are backing a home win to nil in our predictions here, given that Leeds have conceded in only two of their home victories. On top of that, we’re backing Leeds to claim a 2-0 win in our correct score predictions, as the hosts have seen under 2.5 goals in 75% of their matches at Elland Road this term.
