Sunderland vs Derby County Prediction 4 August 2017

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Stadium of Light
Match date: 04.08.2017 at 19:45

On August 4 2017 at 19:45 in the upcoming regular game of the first matchday of the English Football League Championship at the Stadium of Light the local Sunderland will play against Derby County.

David Moyes came back to England and became the manager of Sunderland. In the end he didn’t manage to fulfill his plans. The Black Cats looked rather poor with Moyes as a manager. In their 38 matches played in the previous season of the Premier League Sunderland won 6 times, drew 6 times and lost 26 times with 29:69 goal difference. These results only let them gain 24 points and left Sunderland on the last place in the standings. Consequently, they were relegated to the Football League Championship for the first time in 10 years.

As for Derby County, they got a bit less titles and yet they are still one of the founders of the English Premier League. In the previous season Derby County took part in the Football League Championship in the previous season. They played their 46 games where they won 18 times, drew 13 times and lost 15 times with 54:50 goal difference. As a result, Derby County gained 67 points and took the 9th place in the standings 13 points below the promotion play-offs.

The results of the latest games played between the teams show an advantage of Sunderland. Last time they met was in the season 2007/08. Sunderland won 1:0 at home in that season and in the second round match the teams drew 0:0. We must also admit that there weren’t a lot of goals scored in the matches between them. We think that this time there will be one or two goals scored and it also seems to us that Sunderland are more likely to win.
