      Analysis: Stoke City vs Manchester City (20 August 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: August 17 2016, 14:00 »

      Stoke City and Manchester City face at Britannia Stadium, in a match for this stage of the Premier League (Regular Season). The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 6 head‑to‑heads they won 2, tied 3 and lost 1. Nevertheless, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Premier League, on 05‑12‑2015, Stoke City won by (2‑0). M. Arnautović (15' and 7' ) scored the goals of the match for Stoke City. Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

      Analysis of Stoke

      The home team comes to this 2nd round after having drawn (1‑1) in the 1st round, in a match against Middlesbrough. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 27 conceded; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 19 goals scored and 18 conceded. Stoke City has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 9 of their 25 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

      Stoke comes for this journey after an away home draw, by 1-1, against Middlesbrough: Shaqiri, after 67 minutes scored the goal that allowed Stoke to win a point. The home team usually acts in a tactical system in 4-3-3, favoring quick transitions, especially through the flanks. One of the strengths of home team is how they can realize the direct free. Note that Stoke presents many difficulties in finishing the opportunities that can create. The coach of Stoke won’t count on Afellay and Ireland because they’re injured.

      Analysis of Man City

      The away team comes to this 2nd round after a (2‑1) win in their league debut, against Sunderland. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 25 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 12 conceded. In their last match, for the UEFA Champions League, they got an away win against Steaua Bucureşti by (0‑5). In the last 10 away matches Manchester City has won 3, tied 3 and lost 4.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Manchester City comes very motivated for this journey after an away home triumph by 0-5, against Steaua, counting for the playoffs of the Champions League: Silva, Aguero and Nolito scored the goals of victory. Like the "enemy" of this round, Manchester usually acts in a 4-3-3 where the three responsible players for releasing the panic in the opponent’s defense are Sterling, Aguero and Nolito. So, even acting away home, it’s foreseeable that Manchester City will adopt a more offensive strategy, taking into account that presents more individual and collective quality. For this match the visiting team’s coach should have all the players available.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be both teams score at least one goal. Admittedly, the favorite team to victory is Manchester City; however, on the other side is a team that holds some interesting players, as Shaqiri. So, it’s foreseeable that Stoke will be able to create some danger situations near the visiting team’s goal.
