Blackpool to Win

After losing successive Championship fixtures at Bloomfield Road, Blackpool managed an impressive come-from-behind draw against Bournemouth. They will fancy their chances against Sunderland, who make the trip on the back of a victory against AFC Wimbledon. The Black Cats lost last time on the road and we expect a similar result this time around. The fact that they have lost their last two H2H duels with Blackpool further supports our expectation

Over 2.5 Goals

The last five meetings between Blackpool and Sunderland have finished with less than three goals on the night. However, we believe this fixture at Bloomfield Road will finish with a different result. Both sides have seen goals in their most recent outings as two of their last four fixtures finished with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Blackpool has conceded four goals in their last four matches whilst sending five strikes in return. Sunderland has the same goals scored tally but has conceded one less goal. Given their respective defensive frailties, both Blackpool and Sunderland will fancy their chances of troubling the scorers.

Blackpool vs Sunderland Fixture Preview

Blackpool

Following their promotion from League One, a lot was expected from Blackpool in their opening rounds of Championship action. However, Neil Critchley’s men have stuttered in their performances and are without a victory in the second division. They impressed in their 3-0 win over Middlesborough and a similar performance is expected against Sunderland.

Sunderland

The Black Cats will be ruing the missed chances and another year in England’s third tier division. They failed in the Play-Offs and now have the chance to take revenge for their ousting. Blackpool profited from their failing and Sunderland can depose them from the EFL Cup. The task will be difficult as the last two duels have finished in favour of the Seasiders.
