Both Teams to Score – Yes  

We have seen plenty of matches with both teams scoring goals, that involves Sunderland or Sheffield Wednesday, or both. For example, three of the last five matches both teams played in League One ended that way. Also, three of the last five games between them ended with a BTTS outcome, so it’s fairly certain that Thursday’s match will also end similarly.  

Match Result – Sunderland to Win 

Both Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday have been doing well and gained exactly eleven points in the last five fixtures both played. Sunderland has an advantage that Sheffield Wednesday doesn’t though. They have a nine-point advantage in the League One table compared to Sheffield Wednesday. Even though the last time they faced each other Sunderland wasn’t prepared to face Sheffield Wednesday, we think that this time they will be ready because they are in good form. 

Total Goals – Over 2.5 Goals 

More than half of the recent matches that Sheffield Wednesday played against Sunderland ended with over 2.5 total goals (three of the last five fixtures exactly). Also, three of the last five matches Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday played in League One ended the same way. We’d say that there is a high chance the match ends with over 2.5 total goals scored.  

Latest Match News and Preview for Thursday’s Match 

Sunderland is still struggling with a lot of injuries on their team compared to other teams, but regardless they seem to be doing well in their most recent matches. Luke O’Nien has been out with a shoulder injury since the end of November, while Niall Huggins, Aiden McGeady, and Nathan Broadhead are also injured. 

On the other hand, Sheffield Wednesday only has one injured player – Lewis Gibson who has been out since August. We don’t think that they would win this time because they don’t have the home-field advantage they had against Sunderland in November.
