Oxford United welcome the visitors Sunderland in the English League One – Round 32. The match will be held on Saturday, February, 9th, at the Kassam Stadium (Oxford).
The hosting Oxford United suffer no loss in 4 latest rounds. In one of these, they won the third-placed Portsmouth and then drawed against the second Barnsley, which possibly favors their Saturday opponent Sunderland. The team, however, are among the five relegation claimers, as they top the outsiders’ quartet.

The visitors will most likely keep their top-six position in the end of the campaign. They are presently 4th in the table, 10 points ahead of the seventh-placed Doncaster Rovers but featuring 1 or 2 spare fixtures. Sunderland stand out from other competitors. What makes them different is their set-up play. Not surprisingly, as 2 seasons ago, they competed in the Premiere League and they are now keen to be back there again. First, they need to progress to the Championship though. It is better to avoid the play-offs and advance directly. The team look to do so.
Sunderland lost in only 2 League One encounters, but they drawed a lot. They registered 12 stalemates. More than any other league’s contender. Therefore, we’d better play safe and add a handicap to our prediction of their win tomorrow. Sunderland are stronger than Oxford by all parameters. They allowed 27 goals, only Barnsley did 1 goal less. Oxford missed 46 times, only 4 sides did more. Sunderland netted 50 times, Oxford did 37.
The first-term opponents’ head-to-head on Sunderland’s soil ended level, 1:1. This time, the guests will not be fine with a draw. They will unlikely repeat Portsmouth and Barnsley’s mistakes. Oxford have already done a favor to Sunderland, taking points from their rivals for the Championship progression. Tomorrow, they will probably do another one, by sharing points with them.
Prediction for the match: Sunderland to win with a 0.0 handicap.
