Sunderland vs Barnsley Prediction 1 January 2018

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Stadium of Light
Match date: 01.01.2018 at 15:00

On January 1 2018 at 15:00 at the Stadium of Light in the upcoming 26th match of the English Football League Championship the local Sunderland will play against their guests Barnsley.

Well, nobody actually expected Sunderland to make it to the League One just one season after they relegated from the English Premier League. Of course, there is a half of the season forward and everything may change yet what Sunderland showed in their starting 24 games is really far from what should be there. They won three times, drew ten times and lost eleven times which only let them take the 22nd place in the table in the relegation zone with 28:42 goal difference.

As for Barnsley, they also show really poor results in the current campaign. They are considered to be the middle-peasants of the English Championship and yet they can’t find their way in the current championship. They draw and lose sometimes and it only let them gain 22 points in their 24 games already played with 25:36 goal difference. We must actually admit that last time Barnsley won was on November 4 and since then they drew three times and lost six times.

The history of the latest games played between the teams show and advantage of Sunderland. Anyway, in the first round game of the current championship on August 26 Barnsley outplayed Sunderland 3:0. Sunderland seem to have improved their conditions lately and moreover they are playing at home this time. It seems to us that the hosts are more likely to win in the upcoming match.
