Sunderland vs MK Dons
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stadium of Light (Sunderland).
Sunderland will definitely be ruing their chances missed, as they were held to a draw by Bolton the last day. The former, with their match in hand, could have made some serious in-roads into the podium spots, had they managed a victory.
But, now, they will have to start charge once again. They do have the home advantage to help them out this weekend, though.
The incoming Dons, who have had a mixed bag of results so far in the tournament, will have to tread carefully, especially when their away handicap is taken into account. Moreover, their hosts will be determined to get back on track, and this further increments the risk factor for Paul Tisdale’s men.

Sunderland vs MK Dons Prediction
At home, the Black Cats have been unbeaten so far this campaign, whereas their opponents have lost all but one of their ties on the road. Moreover, the guests of the day are a new addition to this competition, after gaining promotion from League Two just the last summer, and understandably is still getting used to this more challenging upper-division.
Their opponents meanwhile, were plying their trade in the Championship during 2018-19, two flights above the League Two.
In addition, Sunderland has the home advantage, and more importantly, they hold a 100% win-record against this opponent in the last decade and have scored twice or more in every clash.
As such, a comfortable win for the hosts is rightfully on the cards.
