Sunderland vs. Swansea City Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Swansea will be looking to avoid swapping places with Sunderland on the Premier League table when they travel to the Stadium of Light on the weekend.

Sunderland vs. Swansea City Trends Analysis

Saturday will mark the second meeting between these two sides since the 1980s. Their most recent meeting was earlier this season, when Swansea held Sunderland to a 0-0 draw at the Liberty Stadium.

An interesting piece of trivia is that Swansea has traveled to the Stadium of Light just twice in its history, and has never lost an away fixture against Sunderland. Furthermore, Sunderland has never beaten Swansea in any competition.

Sunderland’s been on a decent run of form in recent weeks, taking three wins from five matches – including a 1-0 win over Manchester City. The club has three wins and a draw from its last five matches, along with a single defeat courtesy of Chelsea in the last round of Premiership matches.

Sunderland have scored 8 goals in their last five matches. Defence has been excellent, with just 3 goals conceded during the same time period.

Meanwhile, Swansea can be proud of its efforts, as it comes into this match unbeaten in five matches, and on a run of three consecutive wins, which followed on two draws. The team has shown itself more than capable of challenging the big names in English football, drawing with Tottenham Hostpur during this period, and scoring a historic win over Arsenal.

Swansea have put away 11 goals in their last five matches. Defence hasn’t been of the same quality, with 6 goals conceded during this time.

Sunderland vs. Swansea City Betting Tips

Sunderland’s in for a real battle in this match. Swansea will be high in confidence and looking to carry the excellent form they’ve shown at the Liberty Stadium into away games.

There’s going to be an interesting contest between Swansea’s talented strikers and the resolute Sunderland defence, and we could see this match going to a draw if Sunderland clams up under pressure.

Swansea should be the favourite for this match, but a draw looks like. Our Sunderland vs. Swansea betting tip will be to put a lay bet on the home side at Betfair to earn a payout from the draw or the Swansea win.
