Sunderland take on the visitors Shrewsbury Town in the round of 64 match of the League Cup. The match takes place at Stadium of Light on Wednesday, August 24th.
Sunderland had poor last season and kept the place in elite division in the very last matches. The team started the season awfully, suffering tow defeats in two matches (both 1-2 to Manchester City and Middleborough). The team is only getting used to their new head coach David Moyes and still need time to find balance. Upcoming clash with Shrewsbury Town give the team perfect opportunity to take the first win of the season.

Shrewsbury Town represent third English football division, League 1. The team was close to relegation last season to League 2, having gained only 50 points in 46 matches with 58-79 goal difference. Such record allowed them to finish on 20th place, right above the drop line. Shrewsbury Town show mediocre results this season as well, gaining only four in four matches with 2-5 goal difference. The previous round ended with 2-1 win over Haddersfield.
Sunderland and Shrewsbury Town haven’t met in recent years. The upcoming match has high importance for the manager of Black Cats David Moyes, who took over the team this summer and have lost both matches of the season. Any victory would improve team’s spirit and we should expect Sunderland to take one.
Prediction for the match: Sunderland to win.
