Stoke City v Cardiff City live stream, Sky Sports, Tuesday 8 December, 7.45pm GMT
Stoke and Cardiff both head into Tuesday’s game in confident mood following victories at the weekend.
The Potters saw off the challenge of Middlesbrough at the Bet365 Stadium, registering their second 1-0 win on the bounce following last week’s triumph over Wycombe. Michael O’Neill’s side have now lost just one of their last six Championship outings, a run which has seen them climb up to fifth place in the table. If results go their way in the midweek round of fixtures, Stoke could occupy a place in the top two for the first time this term. The odds are 17/10 on 888Sport for Stoke to grab a win.
Cardiff also ran out 1-0 winners at the weekend, overcoming Watford - the pre-season promotion favourites - at Vicarage Road. That was arguably the most impressive victory of the Bluebirds’ three-game winning run, even though their wins against Luton (4-0) and Huddersfield (3-0) were by larger margins. Cardiff are now looking upwards rather than over their shoulder after climbing into the top of the table. Neil Harris will not be getting carried away, but the Welsh side could move to within a point of the play-offs with another win in midweek – something you can get 19/10 odds for on Bet365.
Stoke’s excellent form has been achieved despite a lengthy injury list. O’Neill will again have to make do without John Obi Mikel, Lee Gregory, Angus Gunn, Adam Davies, Joe Allen, Steven Fletcher and Jordan Thompson, while Sam Clucas has joined those team-mates on the treatment table after coming off against Middlesbrough. Nick Powell and Danny Batth picked up knocks in that game but are expected to be fit for the visit of Cardiff. You can get 11/5 for a draw on Betfred.
Harris will be unable to call upon the services of Lee Tomlin and Jordi Osei-Tutu, neither of whom is expected to play again this year. Cardiff fans may already be looking towards this weekend’s derby against Swansea, but their manager will be fully focused on the trip to the Potteries for now.
Kick-off is at 19.45pm GMT and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Arena in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Stoke City v Cardiff City live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jamie Vardy goal. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
