Reason For Stoke City vs Charlton Predictions

  • Stoke have won 3 of their last 5 league games.
  • Charlton have lost 8 of their 14 away games this season.
  • Both teams scored in 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two clubs.
  • Just 2pts separate these two sides in the Championship table.

Charlton carry the threat of goals on the road

Stoke’s two-game winning streak came to an end when they were thrashed 4-0 away at Derby last time out while Charlton secured all 3pts at home to Barnsley and in the process, leapfrogged Saturday’s hosts and moved into 19th position. The pairs’ last meeting, back in August, was their first in over a decade as the pair never met during their time in the Premier League, and Stoke will be out for revenge this weekend as they were beaten 3-1 at The Valley.

Stoke have won two of their last three home games against Charlton and both teams have scored in five of the pairs’ last six encounters, and we have backed the hosts to claim a 2-1 win this weekend. Stoke have won three of their last five in the league while Charlton have lost three of their last six matches in all competitions.

The hosts have secured five wins at home this season while Charlton have only managed to win twice on the road, losing eight times so far, so you can see why we have backed a home win this weekend. Stoke average 1.20 points per home game while Charlton average just 0.71 points per away game, with the visitors losing 57% of their matches on the road.

The visitors have lost 57% of their away games

Stoke score an average of 1.27 goals per home game and concede 1.33 goals while Charlton score an average of 1.21 goals per away game and concede 1.64 goals, and we believe Stoke are going to need to score twice in order to win as Charlton have a decent chance of getting themselves on the scoreboard this weekend.

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 60% of Stoke’s home games and 71% of Charlton’s away games, with both teams scoring in 47% of the hosts’ home matches and 71% of the visitors away trips, all of which add weight to our prediction for a 2-1 final scoreline. Stoke have only kept clean sheets in 33% of their home games and Charlton have only failed to score in 21% of their away games, just another reason we believe both teams will score on Saturday.

Exactly 3-goals have been scored in a whopping 40% of Stoke’s home games and 43% of Charlton’s away matches, and we have backed exactly 3-goals to be scored this weekend. Stoke have won via a 1-goal margin four times already this season while a majority of Charlton’s defeats (11) have also been via a 1-goal margin.

We’re confident that Stoke will win on Saturday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1. The hosts are at their strongest at home and go up against a Charlton side that have struggled for results on the road. The visitors have already lost eight times away from home but do know how to find the back of the net on their travels, which is why we believe Stoke will need to score twice to stand any chance of winning this weekend.
