Sunderland vs. Newcastle United Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Life doesn’t get any easier for Sunderland after its tense opening match against Liverpool, as the Black Cats host Newcastle in a testing home fixture in the Premiership this Saturday.

Sunderland vs. Newcastle United Trends Analysis

Newcastle has dominated Sunderland in recent years, taking six wins from the last ten meetings between these clubs, including two away wins. Sunderland has pulled off just one win, at home, during this period, while the remaining three matches produced draws.

Newcastle’s last trip to the Stadium of Light produced a 1-1 draw.

Sunderland seems to be idling as the season gets underway, with two draws, two losses and a single win on record for the last five matches. The club will be happy enough with escaping Anfield with a point after its first Premiership match of the season.

Sunderland is going to need to find some form up front to get results, with a modest 5 goals scored in the last five matches. Defence has been conceding goals at the same rate, with 5 goals put past the Sunderland backs in the last five games.

Newcastle’s form looks equivalent to that of Sunderland. The Magpies have scored two draws, two losses and one win in their last five games. Their opening game of the Premiership season was played against Arsenal at St. James’s Park and produced a draw.

Newcastle has scored 7 goals in its last five matches. Despite one or two poor defensive efforts, the club has managed to maintain a decent defensive record, with 3 goals conceded in the same period.

Sunderland vs. Newcastle United Betting Tips

This is a mouthwatering clash between two clubs in similar form. While history suggests Newcastle should take it, there’s no question that Sunderland is fully in the picture for this game.

What may ultimately push the game Newcastle’s way is a superior defence matched by superior attack. With stronger forwards and a more organised defence, the stats suggest Newcastle will edge a result.

We’re going to play it safe on this match, and our Sunderland vs. Newcastle betting tip is to go with a lay bet on Sunderland at Betfair, to win on the draw or the Newcastle win.
