A win will see Coventry City leap into the top six

Coventry’s only period in the Premier League lasted 34 consecutive years from 1967 to 2001. Notably, The Sky Blues’ only title is a FA Cup win in 1987. After finishing 16th last season, Coventry are having much better results this term. To point out, the Sky Blues have collected 11 points more than they did last season after 22 matches. 

Examining Coventry’s recent form, the Sky Blues are winless in five matches having drawn four and lost one. As a result, Coach Mark Robin’s side gathered four out of 15 possible points which left them out of the playoffs berth. However, being just one point behind their opponents Stoke, this is a very good opportunity for Coventry to overtake the Potters.  

A crunch match could see Stoke open a four-point gap

Stoke were relegated to the EFL Championship in 2018 following a ten-year spell in the Premier League. Obviously, Stoke want to have a shot at promotion this season and for that, the Potters collected 35 points and are fifth. With still a long way to go for the conclusion of the season, Stoke need to come back with at least a point from Coventry.

However, similar to their opponents, Stoke lost eight points in their last four matches. To point out, a win away to QPR is the only one Stoke managed in those four games. Obviously, scoring goals has become very rare of late as the Potters netted just twice across their last four matches. Certainly having the worst attacking record among the top nine is not encouraging for coach Michael O’Neill’s team.

Coventry City vs Stoke City Prediction 

There is no doubt that this will the most interesting match of round 23. Both teams have very similar results and levels hence a draw here can be a very probable outcome. However, the market stats show there is only a 19% chance for that outcome.

Checking Coventry’s last five home matches ae can see that the Sky Blues failed to score in just one of their last 12 home games. While Stoke City scored in four of their last five matches. As a result, the chances of seeing over 1.5 goals is 73%.

Considering all these stats and facts, we think a double chance outcome combined with over 1.5 goals, is the most probable end result. As for our second prediction, we will choose the first half or match result backing Coventry City for the win.
