England Championship -- Match Time：4/3/2018 02:45 Tuesday (GMT+8)
Sunderland: Important victory in the previous round (Recent form: D L L L W)
Sunderland are 23rd in the table with 31 points or 5 behind safe positions. The team is in pretty bad position, but still with some chances to avoid relegation. Before international break The Black Cats were in serie of 3 consecutive loses with 0-3 vs Aston Villa, 0-1 vs QPR and 0-2 vs Preston. Also they had a run from 10 games in league without a win, which was one of their worst series in the last couple of years. However, this negative serie has been ended thanks to a win over Derby with 4-1 away at home in the last round. This huge win was very important from psychological point of view as came against one of top sides in division and will increase their confidence now.
Sheffield Wed: Improved form and safe position (Recent form: L L D W W)
Sheffield Wed are 17th in the table with 44 points or 10 over relegation zone, so the team will avoid relegation for sure and last games of the season are not important for them. In the last two games won against Preston with 4-1 at home and Leeds with 2-1 away at home, also the team is without a lose in 3 consecutive games, so pretty strong moment form. Against Sunderland, Sheffield are traditionally with huge problems and without a win for more than 20 years. In the last 5 head to head meetings - 1 draws and 4 wins for Sunderland.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Sheffield Wed are in form, but the team already avoided relegation, so last matches of the season won't be important for them, while Sunderland are desperately trying to avoid relegation and after a win with 4-1 over Derby in the last round, now another positive result is expected.
