Sunderland vs Newcastle: Tips and prediction – 05.04.2015

By on April 5, 2015
Sunderland and Newcastle United will face each other today from 16:00, UK Time in a classic game of the english football. The Black Cats seem to have the first chance, but the odds are very balanced.

Sunderland are fighting to avoid relegation again this season, but their form is a very bad one, with only two points won in the past five league games. The Black Cats have 26 points and an unimpressive goal difference of 23-44, with the worst attack in Premier League. More than that, Sunderland are on the last position when it comes about home games, with only 13 points in 15 matches.
Sunderland probable lineup: Pantilimon – Reveillere, O’Shea, Vergini, Aanholt – Rodwell, Cattermole, Larsson – Johnson, Defoe, Fletcher.
Sunderland missing players: Giaccherini, Brown

Newcastle have not the same problems as their arch rivals from Sunderland, being a team without a clear objective in these last eight fixtures. The guests side has 35 points right now and their goal difference is also an unimpressive one, with 33 goals scored and 48 conceded. We have to say that Newcastle won only 13 points in their 15 trips this campaign.
Newcastle probable lineup: Krul – Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback – Sissoko, Anita – Gouffran, Cabella, Ameobi – Perez.
Newcastle missing players: De Jong, Steven Taylor, Dummett, Tiote, Haidara, Cisse, Coloccini.

Prediction: X2 @ 1.53
Sunderland are no in a good form, as we said, and they also are the worst team on the home ground. We expect a tight game, with at least one point won by Newcastle, despite the last four meetings.
The best odds for Sunderland vs Newcastle: 2.60 – 3.20 – 3.10
