Sheffield United vs Sunderland
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
After their incredible campaign last time around, Sheffield managed to secure promotion to the top division and has been doing justice to the glory with notable performances in the Premier League. Currently, they are placed tenth in the table and is fresh off their win against top-performer Everton, and that too on the road.
With the squad enjoying home advantage this Wednesday, the incoming Sunderland surely has reasons to be worried. Even more so, considering the fact that the guests are plying their trade in the third football division in England.
They will have to take on the likes of John Lundstram, who’s been a major part in the impressive run of the hosts.

Sheffield United vs Sunderland Prediction
The obvious reasons to pick the hosts as the favorites are – they are on top of an impressive run in the Championship, which resulted in them getting promoted to the PL. There too the unit has extended their great streak, and on the other hand, the Coal Cats take part in the third division of league football in England. In addition, the former has the home advantage too.
Furthermore, recent h2h encounters too have seen Sheffield performing well, and especially so at this venue. In fact, it’s been 16 years since the guests have won at this stadium.
By the looks of things, we are about to witness a good display by the PL outfit.
