These teams have tied (2‑2) in the last head‑to‑head for this edition of the league, played on 29‑08‑2015. The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 4 head‑to‑heads they won 3 and tied 1.

Analysis of Sunderland

After 3 wins, 3 draws and 13 losses, the home team is in the 19th position, havinf won 12 points so far. In the last match, they have lost at home against Liverpool by (0‑1), after in the previous match they have lost (4‑1) an away match against Manchester City. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 1 draw and 11 losses in away matches; against 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses at their stadium. In the last 9 home league matches Sunderland has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 27 possible. There are a few recurrent results in their home matches: at half‑time 0‑0 (4 out of 9 matches) and after the 90' 0‑1 (4 out of 9 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. 6 of their last 9 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals, so there is a tendency for few goals in their home matches. In 19 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 14 times and have never been able to turn the score around. there are 2 periods that stand out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 8 of their 22 goals between minutes (76'‑90'); they have suffered 10 of their 28 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Sunderland are going through a bad moment of the season, counting on 5 consecutive defeats in the championship. So, this match against a very similar opponent is seen as crucial to this season stage, being expected that the coach sam Allardyce choose a very offensive approach. However, Sunderland show big difficulties in maintaining the ball possession and in the attack-defense transition. Nonetheless, Jermain Defoe has compensated the offensive weaknesses of the team with 7 scored goals. Jack Rodwell is in doubt to this match, by injury.

Confirmed Lineup: V. Mannone, W. Brown, B. Jones, J. O'Shea, P. van Aanholt, D. Watmore, Y. M'Vila, L. Cattermole, A. Johnson, J. Defoe, F. Borini.
Coach: S. Allardyce.

Analysis of Aston Villa

The away team is currently in the 20th position of the league, with 8 points won, after 1 win, 5 draws and 13 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against West Ham United, by (1‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Norwich City, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 29 conceded; against 2 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses at their stadium, with 12 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches Aston Villa has a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 7 losses, so they have won 5 points out of 30 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 18 matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (4 out of 10 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 4 of the last 19 matches for the Premier League, they have reached half‑time in front in 2 of those 4 matches and have held on to the lead in 1. In 19 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 14 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 9 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

As their opponent, Aston Villa are still in a bad moment of their history, once that by now they count on 18 consecutive matches without winning. So, it's foreseen that the coach Rémi Garde will give emphasis to the defensive organization and to the counterattacks, taking advantage from the offered space in the defense by the opponent. However, the visiting team have big difficulties in the defensive dead balls and in the hour to go to the attack. Scott Sinclair is currently the player with more scored goals to Aston Villa. Jordan Ayew is punished, Carlos Sánchez and Jordan Amavi are injured. 

Confirmed Lineup: B. Guzan, M. Richards, A. Hutton, J. Lescott, A. Cissokho, J. Grealish, J. Veretout, Carles Gil, I. Gueye, L. Bacuna, R. Gestede.
Coach: E. Black.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match will be the draw at the 45'. Taking into account the performance moment of both teams, it's foreseen that Sunderland will take the lead of the game, however, with big difficulties to score. 
So, we believe that this match will finish with a draw on the scoreboard at the halftime.
