WWLLLW

Birmingham City, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-0 Championship success over Blackburn Rovers.

In that game, Birmingham City had 53% possession and 18 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Birmingham City was Andre Dozzell (77'). On the other side, Blackburn Rovers had 8 attempts at goal with 3 on target.

It has been all too rare in recent games that Birmingham City haven’t conceded. The reality is that Birmingham City have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 8 goals during that time.

After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Huddersfield Town in Championship action, Sunderland and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

In that game, Sunderland had 66% possession and 12 shots on goal with 5 on target. Huddersfield Town got 12 shots on goal with 6 on target. Matty Pearson (37') scored for Huddersfield Town.

The stats don’t lie, and Sunderland have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals in all. In defence, Sunderland have been far from perfect. While that may be of interest, we must now wait to see whether that pattern shall be sustained in this game.

Going into this one, Sunderland have not won away from home in their last 4 league games.

👥 Head to head

A look at their past head to head meetings stretching back to 27/08/2014 tells us that Birmingham City have won 1 of these games & Sunderland 4, with the tally of draws standing at 1.

An aggregate of 19 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 7 of them from The Blues and 12 coming from The Black Cats. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.17.

The previous league encounter featuring these clubs was Championship match day 16 on 11/11/2023 which ended up with the score at Sunderland 3-1 Birmingham City.

On that occasion, Sunderland managed 60% possession and 22 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Goals were scored by Jobe Bellingham (17') and Adil Aouchiche (76').

On the other side, Birmingham City had 16 shots on goal with 7 on target. Koji Miyoshi (30') and Dion Sanderson (57' Own goal) scored.

The match was refereed by Dean Whitestone.

📰 Team News: Birmingham City

George Hall (Hamstring injury) and Alfie Chang (Knee injury) will be missing for Birmingham City gaffer Tony Mowbray.

It seems likely that The Blues will possibly use a 4-2-3-1 system this time, handing starts to John Ruddy, Ethan Laird, Dion Sanderson, Marc Roberts, Cody Drameh, Krystian Bielik, Jordan James, Seung-ho Paik, Tyler Roberts, Koji Miyoshi and Jay Stansfield.

📋 Team News: Sunderland

Sunderland manager Michael Beale has to currently contend with reduced team options. Elliot Embleton (Torn thigh muscle), Corry Evans (Cruciate ligament injury) and Niall Huggins (Knee surgery) won’t be making appearances.

We’re of the thinking that The Black Cats could decide to make use of a 4-1-4-1 formation, starting Anthony Patterson, Trai Hume, Daniel Ballard, Luke O'Nien, Leo Fuhr Hjelde, Dan Neil, Patrick Roberts, Abdoullah Ba, Pierre Ekwah, Jack Clarke and Nazariy Rusyn.

💡 Prediction

We’re envisaging that Birmingham City could well find it tough to be putting a goal past this Sunderland outfit who we reckon will score at least once to put them ahead.

We’re therefore tipping a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Sunderland when the referee blows for full-time.

Let’s see how it plays out.
