Our Prediction:

Sunderland will win

Accrington – Sunderland Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

With just one win from their last six, they would love something from this game, and they will have a chance, as Sunderland will arrive here a tired team after a big game on Sunday in the EFL Trophy, a game which they lost on penalties. They are just two points ahead of the bottom four, and there are three of those places still up for grabs. Accrington have recently shot down the table, and they are not safe from relegation as things stand right now.

A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Dion Charles, who scored his second goal of the season in a 3-3 draw with Bristol Rovers. Saturdays football game at Wham Stadium pits together Accrington Stanley and Sunderland, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the League One standings ahead of Matchday 8. Accrington have been scoring goals for fun of late, but the Black Cats are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals.

Sunderland are the stronger of the two on paper but Accrington will play in their usual attacking manner and that should create an open and end to end game. Ultimately, were expecting this to be a cracking match jam-packed full of action. Both teams have scored in 6 of Accringtons last 7 games, as well as in 7 of Sunderlands last 8 and as such, its fairly apparent that backing the Both Teams to Score line is a must as far as the betting is concerned.

Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation. Red and White shirts are Sunderlands trademark and the clubs fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000.

We like under 2.5 goals here, which is available at 17/20 withBet365. We think that with Sunderland either fielding a team with a couple of squad players in, or being a little tired from Sunday, there wont be many goals here. On top of that, with points at a premium for Accrington, we can also see them being cautious, especially in the first half.

Accrington vs Sunderland Match Prediction

Theyve already defeated Accrington 3-1 away from home in the League Cup this season and we fancy them to get the better of them once again on Saturday; this time via a 2-1 margin. With Sunderland also overwhelming favourites to win the game and in good shape, their last outing aside, backing the visitors to win in combination both nets being hit also looks well worth a play.

A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Dion Charles, who scored his second goal of the season in a 3-3 draw with Bristol Rovers. Accrington have been scoring goals for fun of late, but the Black Cats are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals.

Our prediction for this League 1 match:

Sunderland are in contention for an automatic promotion spot, but they have to catch up their games in hand on their opponents. Sunderland have the quality to get promoted, but do they have the legs within their squad? They have nine games to play in just over a month, this is going to be a busy period and they start on the back of a long game on Sunday including extra time.
