Hull City vs Stoke City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 39

The Potters travel to the east coast, where the Tigers await!

While few seasons ago it was a regular fixture, now Stoke City will visit Hull City with hopes of improving their spot at the bottom of the standings. Match will begin on March 29, at 4 PM CET.

Hull City

One of the most polarizing teams in the English football system in the last few years, Hull City kept jumping between the Premier League and League One before settling on a spot in the EFL Championship for now.

Undefeated in their last seven, the Tigers are in the midst of the playoff race with only one caveat - they really need to start winning. Four draws in a row, including three at home against West Bromwich Albion, Birmingham City and, most recently, Leicester City, are not the worst outcomes, but Hull is now trailing Norwich City by three points with a game to spare.

Stoke City

The Stoke City issues in the EFL Championship after being relegated from EPL in 2018 are hardly understandable, but the Potters are yet to finish in the top half of the Championship ever since.

This season will not end any differently, as the team from Stoke-on-Trent is laser-focused on keeping themselves above the dreaded cut line to the relegation zone. A crushing home loss to Norwich City in the last round left Stoke City only two points away from danger, as they will go to the east coast, hoping to repeat their performance in Preston three weeks ago.

Prediction ⚽️

Hull City was surprisingly dominant in their clash in September, as the Tigers went on the road and won “3-1”, but they have not won two straight in the series since 2019.

Both teams need points, but with Hull eager to stop their four-game “draw” streak, we will side with the hosts over a struggling Stoke City squad with 1.96 odds 🔥.
