Middlesbrough vs Sunderland Prediction 5 November 2017

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Riverside Stadium
Match date: 05.11.2017 at 12:15

On November 5 2017 at 12:15 in the upcoming regular game of the 16th matchday of the English Football League Championship Middlesbrough will host their guests Sunderland at their domestic stadium Riverside.

The fact that Middlesbrough were kicked-off from the national elite division was expected, in fact. The new players they got during the transfer window after their promotion didn’t manage to make the difference. As for the current campaign, Middlesbrough are rather unstable in it and yet their victory against Hull City 1:3 was the second one in a row which makes us speak about the rise of the team. Yet, we must admit that Middlesbrough haven’t won at home for three matches in a row already as they lost to Cardiff 0:1 and Norwich 0:1 and drew Brentford 2:2.

Sunderland were also kicked-off from the premier league after the previous season. This season they are really poor in defense and concede the average of two goals per game and it makes them be among the outsiders of the league after 15 matches already played in the Football League Championship. The Black Cars gained 4 points of 15 possible in their latest five games as they drew Preston 2:2, QPR 1:1, Brentford 3:3 and Bolton 3:3 and lost to Bristol City 1:2. We must also admit that Sunderland only won one single games in the second match of the current season and yet we don’t really expect them to win this time.

The statistics and the results of the latest games played between the teams show the advantage of Middlesbrough. They won both of their games played against Sunderland in the previous season of the English Premier League 1:2 and 1:0. That’s why we think that the hosts are much more likely to win in the upcoming match.
