Coventry vs Sunderland Head-to-head stats

The reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 draw, and four of the past five clashes had goals from both teams. But it surely needs to be mentioned that Coventry are unbeaten in the past 15 years, and they have a perfect unbeaten record at home in the past three decades.

Who will win the match between Coventry vs Sunderland?

As mentioned, Coventry have an impressive h2h record against this foe – and particularly so at this venue. Not only are the hosts unbeaten at this venue in the past three decades here, but barring two draws, they have a 100% winning record at this ground since 2000.

On top of that they lost just once at this venue this season in the Championship since October, while their counterparts have just a single league win on the road in the whole of 2023, and just two such wins in the past four months.

As such, count on the hosts Coventry to have the edge this weekend.

How many goals can be expected?

Coventry scored two or more goals in three of their last five appearances at home, and at the same time, only two teams in the whole league have scored more goals than Sunderland on the road.

And with goals being a regular occurrence in h2h clashes as well, a high-scoring affair is expected this Saturday.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

The latest h2h clash ended in a 1-1 draw, and four of the former five such meetings had goals from both teams as well. And at this venue, 100% of h2h encounters over the past 25 years had goals from both squads, barring just three meetings.

Likely, chances are quite high for goals to come in huge numbers.
