Middlesbrough vs Sunderland by Jumanjiyo

Sunderland has not won a game at home in 2017 where they have relegated to championship. They also had a horrible start to championship season. Last week they tied with Bolton 3-3 and after this game coach Simon Grayson has been sacked. The club is in a bad situation. They would like to change ownership to create finances and stop this bad going. They got their last home win in December 2016. The new coach is Stockdale and his first game is a derby. He stated that if we get a win here, the season might change. I believe they will play aggressively. Last week against Bolton they had many individual mistakes.


Middlesbrough has won against Reading and Hull City and they were both away games. Assombalonga & Braithwaite have been a dangerous pair for the opponents. Sunderland’s week point is their defence and they will find opportunities against them.


Sunderland has conceded 30 goals so far in the season and that is the highest in the league. Coach changes have always been a motivation. Having said that it will be a tough task for them against Middlesbrough. They might want it more offensively, however with their defence it seems very difficult to me that they will have a clean sheet. With Sunderland’s motivation and the talented attackers of Middlesbrough, in my opinion it will be a derby with at least 3 goals.
