After making three consecutive wins in the EFL Championship, Sunderland plays host to Cardiff City in Round 8 on Sunday, 24 September. The Bluebirds have also gained positive momentum in the league with two successive victories ahead of his fixture.
Match result prediction: Sunderland to win
Sunderland have won only two of the previous five matches against Cardiff City. But the Black Cats have jotted down an impressive record previously with four wins and a draw in the last five league outings. Sunderland has also won the previous two games at the Stadium of Light in a row. On the other hand, Cardiff City are undefeated in all three road fixtures this season, losing the last two in a row. Based on these statistics, we predict Sunderland to have the upper hand and claim three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Three of the previous five H2Hs between these two sides at Stadium of Light have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Sunderland has found the back of the net in four of the recent five games in the EFL Championship. Cardiff City have also rattled the net in each game during that course. On the defensive end, Sunderland and the Bluebirds have conceded goals in three and four games respectively in the aforestated period. Hence, we expect the teams to share a BTTS outcome in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Sunderland
Sunderland will be prepared to fight against the strong offence of Cardiff as the Black Cats have conceded just three goals in the last matches, keeping two clean sheets. On the other hand, the Bluebirds have conceded multiple goals in each of the last three road fixtures in the EFL Championship. Sunderland have also smashed at least three goals in all of their last three league games. Considering these facts, we predict a 3-1 win for Sunderland in this encounter.
