Stoke City v Liverpool Betting Tips: Match Preview
Stoke City did not gather a lot of victories during their pre-season warm up, therefore the performance rating of 43% is totally normal. Three consecutive losses in the last 3 games preceded by two victories.
Good last season for the team finishing 9th in the table, finishing just 6 points under the Europa League qualification spots. Generally a strong host, Stoke City had the same home record as Tottenham last year who finished 5th.
New names in the team so far are: Sergio Molina from Real Madrid for an undisclosed price, Marco van Ginkel from Chelsea on a loan, Ibrahim Afellay from Barcelona as a free agent, Shay Given from Aston Villa as a free agent, Moha El Ouriachi from Barcelona for an undisclosed price, Joselu from Hannover for 8 million euro and Glen Johnson from Liverpool as a free agent.
Record against Liverpool W4-D5-L7, losing 3 of the last 5 games, and winning 2 including the most recent game on Britannia Stadium a demolishing 6-1 over the Reds. Looking back at the last 3 games on Britannia Stadium, all of them saw at least 4 goals, and a total of 19 goals, which makes the Over 2.5 goals @ 2.07 incredible attractive bet.
Good pre-season for Liverpool, recording 5 victories and a draw in the last 6 games with overall performance rating 79%. Quite a drama around Raheem Sterling during the summer, who transferred to Manchester City after all for the sum of 69.4 million euro. Signed by Rafael Benítez for just 600k GBP, leaving the club in such manner made him hated by most Liverpool fans.
New names in the team so far are: James Milner from City as a free agent, Adam Bogdan from Bolton as a free agent, Danny Ings from Burnley as a free agent, Nathaniel Clyne from Southampton as a free agent, Roberto Firmino from Hoffenheim for 41 million euro, Joe Gomez from Charlton for 4.9 million and Christian Benteke from Aston Villa for 46.5 million.
Would be really interesting to see if Liverpool’s confidence is still shaky after the 1-6 loss last season on Britannia Stadium. The team is still priced as a favorite for this match with odds to win @ 2.10 from bet365.com.
If the Reds want to surpass their last season’s spot (6th) they’d need to manage to beat teams like Stoke City, opponents who should be “not that hard” on paper.
Seeing the last 3 games on Britannia Stadium says it all: a ton of action and goals. A total of 19 goals in those 3 games, each of which saw 4 of more. Back Both Teams to score @ 1.83 and Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.07 with bet365.com
