So what’s so hard about a cold wet Tuesday night in Stoke?
The Britannia Stadium is notorious for taking the scalps of highly fancied teams. And this minisode of Unibet’s awesome video series, #LuckIsNoCoincidence, asks the big question, Why?
Ex-Stoke defender Danny Higginbotham knows exactly what makes the big men crumble: “Visiting teams would get in the tunnel and all of a sudden the noise would hit them.
"You could physically see some of the teams beaten before they’d even got on the pitch.”
Just ask former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson: “For me personally it was one of my least favourite grounds to play at…I don’t think I’ve ever won at Stoke in my career."
So what is it about the demon stadium of Stoke that unravels even the best? And how do you make the most of the conditions?
