      « Reply #1 on: March 30 2016, 19:13 »

      Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion face at Stadium of Light, in a match for the 32ª round of the Premier League. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 17‑10‑2015, West Bromwich Albion got a home win by (1‑0). The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 5 head‑to‑heads they won 2, tied 2 and lost 1. Nevertheless, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Premier League, played on 21‑02‑2015, they tied (0‑0). Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

      Analysis of Sunderland

      The home team is currently in the 18ª position of the league, with 26 points won, after 6 wins, 8 draws and 16 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Southampton, by (1‑1). In the last match, they tied in an away match against o Newcastle United, by (1‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 36 conceded; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 10 home league matches o Sunderland has a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 14 points out of 30 possible.

      In their home league matches, the most frequent final score was the 0‑1 (5 out of 14 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in all of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 30 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 18 times and have never been able to turn the score around. There are 1 periods that stand out in the last 14 home matches for this competition: they have scored 7 of their 17 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      Sunderland heads into this match after a draw against Newcastle, making it their 4th consecutive match without a win. In this game it is expected for coach Sam Allardyce to opt for a more offensive strategy as a way to take advantage of the defensive difficulties of their opponent. However, Sunderland has shown some difficulties against crosses in their defense. Defoe is still the best scorer on the team with 12 goals. For this match, they will be without Khaziri, Kone, Gooch and Watmore, who are all hurt.

      Analysis of West Bromwich

      The away team is currently in the 11ª position of the league, with 39 points won, after 10 wins, 9 draws and 11 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against o Manchester United, by (1‑0). In the last match, they lost in a home match against o Norwich City, by (0‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 12 goals scored and 23 conceded; against 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 19 conceded. Their last away match for this competition ended in a draw by (2‑2) against o Leicester City. In the last 10 away league matches West Bromwich Albion has a record of 2 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 30 possible.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 10 of the last 14 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 30 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 15 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      West Bromwich heads into this game after a home loss against Norwich, putting an end to their 5 game consecutive without a loss. In this match we expect for coach Tony Pullis to play in a similar fashion as last game, however, he will prioritize attack as they are facing a team with defensive issues. Rondon and Berahino will be the two forwards. José Salomon is the best scorer on the team with 7 goals. For this match, they will be without Morrisson and Brunt, who are both hurt.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most probable scenario for this match is the occurrence of a small number of goals. This should be a very even match, with a small number of scoring opportunities for both sides, as they both need to avoid losses. However, Sunderland is playing at home so we should expect more initiative from them and the best scoring opportunities as well.
