Sunderland vs Fleetwood
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 25 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadium of Light (Sunderland)
Since both sides are on winning run we can expect a closely contested match at the Stadium of Light. Sunderland is 4th in the table with 57 points and they still have the chance for direct qualification. They come into this match on the back of 4 straight league wins.
Fleetwood is also on an active winning run and have not lost a match since early January. After that 1-0 loss to Burton away from home they have strengthened defense and have won 5 matches as well. They are under pressure from Portsmouth who is equal on points. A win is necessary for the Cod Army to guarantee a safe play-off spot.
Sunderland vs Fleetwood: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two played only 3 h2h matches of which Fleetwood won once.
- The other two of those three games ended as draws.
- Both teams scored in all three of those matches.
- The only head to head at this ground ended as 1-1.
- Sunderland is on a 4 match winning streak in the league.
- Fleetwood has won 5 of their 5 previous league games.
Sunderland vs Fleetwood: Prediction
This match has all the ingredients to be a draw. Apart from one, all the other two h2h games were low scoring draws. Both teams are on an active winning streak as well. So we can expect a close game on Tuesday.
Sunderland kept a clean sheet in their recent 4 league games. So scoring at their home ground will be tough even though the visitors have scored 5 in their last 5 matches. But the visitors gave away just one goal in 3 previous matches. Since the defenses are in good form I am backing this game to be a low scoring affair with less than 2.5 goals.
Sunderland vs Fleetwood: Betting Tips
Less than 2.5 goals @ 1.87 (7/8).
Match to Draw @ 3.40 (12/5).
