Watford will host Sunderland on Sunday 15th May 2016 hoping to redeem their lost glory after their trashing at the hands of Norwich City the last time, they will be hoping to bounce back and finish the season on a high note.
Watford has had an ugly second half of the season, they have won just 2 of their last 10 games, they are 13th position in the league with 44 points, their home form is also not good as they have won only 1 of their last 6 games, drawn 3 and lost 2. They are bad in defence, they have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 4 games.
Sunderland escaped relegation during the mid-week when they trashed Roberto Martinez side Everton 3-0 at home, which triggered the sacking of the the ill fated manager. They will be hoping to build on the huge win to end their season with full happiness having secured next season’s premier league stay.
Sunderland are in 17th position with 38 points, they are currently on a jolly ride as they are unbeaten in 9 of their last 10 games. On the road, they are not that bad recently as most of their games have ended in draw, they drawn 4 of their last 6 away games, they have lost 1 and won 1.

Watford vs Sunderland: Prediction
Sunderland are in a better shape compared to Watford which makes them the favourites in this game, Watford also will enter this game with low confidence after falling 4-2 to Norwich. Both teams are not in a battle, the out come of this game wont affect anything.
I predict the game to end in draw but it’ll be safer to go for a double chance (Sunderland win or draw), i’m also predicting a high number of goals in this game, over 3.5 goals could be in the bag but it’ll be safer to think of over 2.5 goals.
My correct score prediction is 2-2.
