The hosts are in a tougher position being six points below the line with only three games left to play. Burton are a single point above after a shocking 3-1 victory over Derby County seven days ago at Pirelli Stadium. Such result came out nowhere for Nigel Clough’s men who were previously winless in nine straight league outings. Moreover, they came into the match against Derby off the back of a demolishing 0-5 loss to Hull City in front of the home crowd.

Liam Boyce was the one who broke the deadlock for the Brewers last weekend , while midfielder Luke Murphy won the man of the match award with a goal and an assist each.

Sunderland vs Burton Albion: Head-to-head

This will only be the second head to head tie between Sunderland and Burton Albion.

The Black Cats saw off their rivals when they met for the first time ever in November last year (0-2 at Pirelli).

Sunderland vs Burton Albion: Prediction

Burton will head into the game with an improved confidence after bagging three goals past the Rams last time out. However, the Black Cats are also undefeated in last three games, each of which saw both teams on the scoreline. BTTS thus pop up as the most logical betting option and it can be backed at the 1.80 odds.

Sunderland conceded two or more goals in six of last seven league games at Stadium of Light. Given that the visitors notched three against Derby County seven days ago, we see a huge value in backing Burton Albion to net at least two goals here at the sky-high 3.40 odds.
