Sunderland vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
English League Championship
Date: Sunday, 6th May 2018
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Stadium of Light (Sunderland).
This game opposes the 2 distant opposites in the last round of the EFL Championship. Sunderland sits last in the table already relegated while Wolves sits untouchable at the top.
Sunderland have gone from the Premier League to League 1 in just 2 seasons. The 6 time English Champions suffered 2 back to back relegations and are already preparing for the life of English football third tier. Their home form was the main reason behind their downfall with only 13 points won in 22 games at Stadium of Light.
Wolves proved that they deserve their title. They were consistent most of the season letting very few slip ups. The team has won 99 points so far and has headed towards reaching a hundred. The side is highly ambitious and won’t have much complacency.
Wolves haven’t lost since March and haven’t conceded a goal since 3rd of April. Last game the team failed to win against a sturdy Sheffield Wednesday side. Wolves dominated in terms of chances but their finishing was letting them down the entire game.

Sunderland vs Wolves: Predictions
This is a rare case. The last and the already relegated Sunderland against the champions Wolves.
