Match Preview

Stoke City

Stoke City met Manchester City on January 1st 2013, where they lost the match on Etihad Stadium with 0-3. Two mistakes and a penalty and that’s what it took for a tough team to concede 3 goals. While Stoke has lost most away matches against Manchester, their home record is quite good. Four draws and a victory in Premier League and a victory in over time in FA Cup in 2010 with 3-1. Stoke City are priced to win this game @ 4.75, mainly because of their most recent loss, but the team is extremely tough at home this season. The team has only a single loss, five victories and five ties. In the past 15 years Stoke City has never lost a match to Manchester City at home. Last loss was way way back in 1998, which leads us to the thought that this match will be profitable for punters willing to risk a bit on the draw @ 3.60 or on Stoke City to qualify @ 3.00

Manchester City

Manchester City already managed to win this first game of 2013 against Stoke City but on Etihad Stadium with 3-0. The team has overall 8 victories, 5 draws and 4 losses against the Potters, but all of those since 1998 have been on their soil. In fact Manchester City hasn’t won an away game against Stoke City in 15 years, and has recorded 4 draws and 2 losses, one of which came in FA Cup in 2010, after a tie regular time and a victory in over time. Manchester City will be determined to win this match and the odds suggest they will easily do so, priced @ 1.72. Their odds to qualify for the next stage of the tournament are even lower @ 1.36. However their poor record on Britannia Stadium since ’98 speaks differently and these low odds seem unjustified.

Verdict

While Manchester City are priced as a favorite for this match, we believe that Stoke City will continue with their good home performance (just one loss this season) and will have a positive result here. We expect a Draw @ 3.60 or Stoke to qualify @ 3.00 either directly in regular time or in over time.

The odds hold a great value for a match with this magnitude for sure.
