Reason For Stoke City vs Blackpool Predictions

  • Blackpool have won one of their last 10 away trips in the EFL Cup
  • Stoke finished last season with seven victories in nine home Championship games
  • Stoke haven’t been eliminated at home to an EFL side in this competition since Swindon in 2012

Blackpool lost 12 of their 35 matches in League One last season and are likely to start this term off with a defeat against Stoke City. The visitors have won just once in their last 10 away trips in the EFL Cup, so this step up against Championship opposition looks tricky.

Stoke are back among the promotion favourites after a rocky campaign last term. That’s because the Potters have picked up their form at the bet365 Stadium. They finished the Championship campaign with three consecutive home wins and seven victories from their last nine here.

The Potters look good to add to that form, as they’ve not been dumped out of this competition by a non-Premier League side since 2012. Given Blackpool’s away record, our predictions here back a home win and a 2-0 victory for the Potters.
