            Sunderland vs Millwall Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Millwall will be aiming to guarantee their Championship safety on Saturday afternoon as they are set to travel to The Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland.

            The hosts currently find themselves in 13th place in the table, having gained 56 points from their 43 games this campaign. After a promising start to their season, Sunderland will be disappointed to see their season fizzle out into mid-table obscurity.

            The Black Cats come into this weekend on the back of a decent run of form which has seen them record two draws, two wins and one defeat from their last five league games. Goalscoring has been a problem for Sunderland in recent weeks as they have scored just twice in their last four league outings.

            Mike Dodds’ side recorded a narrow victory over promotion-chasing West Brom when they were last in action. The only goal of the game came in the 45th minute when Pierre Ekwah found the back of the net against the run of play.
            Millwall are sitting in 16th place in the Championship table and currently have a six point buffer between themselves and the drop zone. A win this weekend would mathematically ensure their survival.

            The Lions come into this game having won their last two league games. Last Tuesday, they pulled off one of the upsets of the season as they defeated Leicester City 1-0. Millwall were able to follow up their win with another victory against Cardiff last time out.

            The Lions took the lead early with Jed Wallace's strike in the 12th minute, showcasing their attacking intent. Cardiff responded before halftime with a goal from Joel Bagan, but Millwall regained control in the second half. Mason Bennett restored the lead with a powerful finish in the 61st minute, and Benik Afobe sealed the win with a goal in stoppage time.

            The fixture of Sunderland vs Millwall has a long and storied history, with the two sides having first met each other in the 1937 FA Cup. In total, these two sides have faced each other on 41 occasions, with Sunderlnad having a better record, winning 16 of the matches between the sides.

            It was a tight game when these sides met each other earlier on in the season. Kevin Nisbet volleyed into the bottom corner after being set up by Brooke Norton-Cuffy to put the Lions ahead just before half-time. But Jack Clarke equalised from the spot on 78 minutes after being fouled by Ryan Leonard as the game finished 1-1.

            It is Sunderland who come into this weekend’s game as favourites at the bookies and they are currently priced @ 6/5, whilst an away win for Millwall is priced @ 23/10 and a draw is @ 23/10.

            We are backing a draw and both teams to score as draws have been of frequent occurrence in the recent meetings between these two sides. Four of the last five games between these sides have ended in draws, in which both teams scored in all of the games. Sunderland have also drawn two of their last three games.
