Sunderland vs Norwich City
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadium of Light (Sunderland).
The Black Cats will try and catch the last train on Tuesday evening when they host Norwich City at Stadium of Light. Sunderland have generally had a dreadful campaign in this term of the Championship and they will come into this being seven points shy of the safe zone. A three-pointer is definitely the only option for Chris Coleman and his men if they want to keep at le3ast theoretical chances of saving the second class status alive.
They’ll be up against an in-form Norwich City who will travel to Stadium of Light off the back of a striong 3-1 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday. Josh Murphy, Dennis Srbeny and James Maddison bagged goals for the Canaries at the weekend. Nonetheless, Norwich City have been playing much worse on the road throughout the entire season.
They have been very easy to break down of travels lately, shipping four gals on two occasions in last three games. The previous one has seen them suffer a 4-1 disaster against Queens Park Rangers away at Loftus Road Stadium. Given that Sunderland have league’s weakest defensive record, we could well be in for a high-scoring affair when these two sides clash up in mid-week.
Sunderland vs Norwich City: Head-to-head
Norwich City have been slightly more successful over the history and they lead the head to head tie by four wins coming into their 33rd encounter with the Black Cats.
Sunderland have, however, been better in front of the home fans where they have won 7 and lost five so far.
Sunderland have won each of last two meetings with the Canaries netting three goals on both occasions.
Sunderland vs Norwich City: Prediction
Backing goals at both ends is just the way to go since both sides have shown some improvements in the final third lately, being super easy to break down at the other end at the same time.
Alternatively, we see a massive value in backing Sunderland to win & BTTS at 5.50 given Norwich’s horrendous form on travels.
