Sport Betting Tip: Stoke City - Gillingham
- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Stoke City - Gillingham
EFL Cup round 4 will be at stake when Stoke City and Gillingham face each other at Bet365 Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Potters did well to beat Wolverhampton at Molineux Stadium in their EFL Cup opener, and it should come as no surprise bookies see them as favourites to beat the League One side at home. Stoke aim to bounce back from a 2-0 Championship loss to Bristol City, and they are surely capable of eliminating the Gills in the EFL Cup last 32. I am pretty sure about that!!!
Despite the changes which will be made for this game, I still expect a relatively comfortable night for Stoke. While some players may be short of match fitness, they will be eager to make an impact on their chance for the future
League One side Gillingham are aiming to reach the fourth round of the League Cup for just the third time in their history as they travel to face Championship outfit Stoke and they will surely feel that they have an outside chance of progressing given that they have only lost twice in their last 19 games in all competitions stretching back to last season. Stoke, though, impressively eliminated Premier League side Wolves in the second round last week and are undoubtedly the favourites for this cup tie.
Their matches have all been low-scoring so far this season and Gillingham may approach this match cautiously to try and sneak for a win so it could be worth either backing against both teams scoring. But on top of that, Stoke are at home (one of the toughest grounds in the whole of England), and they are a team in the Championship – while their opponents are from the lower division.
For the reasons, expect a winning performance from Stoke City . 2-1 , 2-0 ?
My prediction: Stoke win FT
