Stoke City hosts Swansea City in round 29 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Saturday, January 25th at Bet365 Stadium (Stoke on Trent)
Stoke City has recently given signs of life. Until mid-December, the team was in the top three of outsiders. However, having replaced the coach, the Potters scored 19 points in the last 13 rounds. Before that, the team earned only eight points in 13 games. And Stoke has already left the relegation zone, though it is only four points ahead of it. In the penultimate round, the Potters tied against the 7th Millwall at home. In the last one, they played against West Bromwich and scored a goal, having made one shot on goal in the first half. And then they somehow managed to hold out until the final whistle. Now another team from the top of the standings will come. Will Stoke City gain points again?

Swansea is closing the playoff quartet now. It is very undesirable to drop out of it because it will be very difficult to return there. And the Welsh are gaining points wherever possible. In the last eight rounds, they lost only once. They gained four victories and scored 14 points.
Yes, Stoke beat the leader. Still, there was more luck than City's merits. In the second half, West Bromwich did not let the Potters touch the ball, possessing it 72% of the time. But it did not win back. It happens so - the ball does not go to the net and that’s it. The Throstles shot on goal 11 times but never scored. But the luck isn’t eternal, and Stoke will surely not win in the upcoming match. The Swans lost in only two out of 14 away matches. But it happened in matches with 5th Brentford and the same leader West Bromwich. Having underestimated the opponent, Swansea lost to the Potters on its pitch, although the hosts opened the scoring already in the first minute. Now the Welsh will strive for revenge, and they will probably at least not lose. Stoke City ran out of luck in the last round in West Bromwich.
Prediction for the match: Swansea to win with +0.5 handicap
