In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Leicester City by (1‑0), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑3) at home, against AFC Bournemouth.

      Newcastle heads into this matchup with low motivation after 4 consecutive losses in the league, the last one came against league leaders, Leicester. Usually, they play in a 4-2-3-1 formation prioritising organization and supported play, using the wings as a way to create scoring opportunities. Sissoko and Perez are very important players due to their great quality. They show a lot of difficulties in crosses, as they have no players with remarkable height. Georginio Wjinaldum is still the best scorer on the team, with 9 goals. For this challenge they will be without Obetan, Cisse, Mbabu, Coloccini, Tiote, Krul Haidara, Toney Mangulu and Dummett, who are all recovering from injuries.

      The away team is currently in the 17ª position of the league, with 25 points won, after 6 wins, 7 draws and 16 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against o Crystal Palace, by (2‑2). In the last match, they tied in an away match against o Southampton, by (1‑1).

In the last 10 away league matches Sunderland has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 30 possible.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 10 of the last 15 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 29 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 18 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

      Sunderland heads into this matchup after a 1-1 draw away from home, against Southampton, making it their third consecutive match without a win. For this match, it is expected for coach Sam Allardyce to opt for a rather offensive approach to the game as a way to take advantage of their opponent's defensive flaws. However, it is important to highlight that Sunderland has shown great difficulties maintaining ball possession and against counter attacks. Veteran Jermain Defoe is the best scorer on the team with 11 goals. Duncan Watmore will be the only unavailable player in this match.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most probable scenario for this match is for both teams to score at least one goal. Both teams really need to score so we expect an open match with a lot of scoring opportunities. So, just like previous matches, we are hoping for both teams to keep scoring goals.
