Under 2.5 goals Stoke vs Cardiff 2/3 for Tuesday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport

In a battle between two sides who should find the mood in their camp at a real high, Stoke vs Cardiff will take place at the Bet365 Stadium on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Stoke might have endured what was somewhat of a rollercoaster end to November, the Potters have really impressed many across the Championship since bringing in former Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill. Last seen over the weekend when picking up a 1-0 win against fellow play-off hopefuls Middlesbrough on home soil, they have managed to find a route into the top-six and suddenly sit within striking distance of breaking into the automatic positions. Collecting 12 points over their last five second-tier contests at the Bet365 Stadium, O’Neil will be most boosted by his side’s recent improvements at the back. Recording a clean sheet against Boro on Saturday afternoon, the midweek hosts have gone over 300 minutes without picking the ball out of their own net.

As for the visitors, also managing to shock many across the Championship as they picked up their own 1-0 victory away at title-chasers Watford over the weekend, Cardiff find themselves in an almost identical situation to Stoke. Despite enduring a brief blip when drawing a close to November, the Bluebirds have bounced back in very impressive fashion. Now sat on the verge of breaking back into the top-half of the table, the Welsh outfit find themselves enjoying a three-match winning run and with the mood in their camp really on the rise. Dreaming of securing their own play-off finish this season, Head Coach Neil Harris has also seen his men continue to shine at the back. Recording a shock clean sheet against the Hornets on Saturday afternoon, Cardiff have also managed to record three clean sheets on the spin.
