Watford vs Sunderland: Prediction

Both teams have been in a very poor form in recent games, they have been winless since February.

They both have weaknesses especially in keeping possession of the ball which might make the game not much interesting.

The game will likely see few goals considering the poor finishing of Sunderland and low scoring form of Hornets. If a team would score innthis fixture, it should be Watford.
