Hull City vs Sunderland
Date: 16th September 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium, Hull.
Two former Premier League sides Hull City and Sunderland will meet on Saturday. This match is part of Championship Round 8 and none side had a good start. Expectations were high, and fans of both teams are surely not feeling happy.
Inconsistency is the biggest issue for Hull City at the moment. The Tigers are not looking bad offensively at all. They are having the second best offense in the league, scoring 13 goals so far. However, the back line has been disastrous. Their opponents netted 14 goals so far, which means Hull has worst stats in the league. The Tigers played three games in front of the home crowd. Two of those ended in victorious fashion.
The Saints were marked as one of the top favorites to win Championship before the season started. That changed drastically. The squad has won only five points so far, which is a true disaster. Sunderland are sitting in the 20th place, mainly due to poor efficiency. The number of goals they scored so far is only six. When it comes to the record on road, they collected four out of possible nine points.
