Stoke City will be at home at the Britannica this weekend as Southampton visit in a game that should be evenly matched. Both teams have been playing some good football and although the home side are in better form at the moment, this game will still be well contested and exciting to watch for the neutral viewer.
Stoke are coming off quite a few wins in a row and they will believe that they can keep that run going in front of their home crowd this weekend. There is a lot of talent in this side and as I have said many times before, their attacking game is really exciting and entertaining to watch. This weekend they will be up against a side in Southampton who have a pretty strong defense and this should test them so I will be fascinated to see how this unfold.
Southampton on the other hand have just run bad and have managed to lose games from winning situations. This is something of a concern for the Saints and they will look to rectify this against Stoke. There is a lot of firepower up front for this side and their defense is also pretty strong so I will be interested to see how they play away from home.
With all that in mind, I think that the good run of form and the home crowd will be enough to get Stoke City over the line here. We are getting a good price on them to bet and I think that they win more times than they lose, especially at home, so we are getting the right price and thus good value. I am excited for this game since I love how both teams play so this is a must watch in my opinion.
