The visiting Blackpool have drawed 12 times, but in the last encounter, they were victorious over Walsall, 2:0. Notably, Blackpool boast best league’s defensive line, they allowed just 27 goals in 30 rounds; only the leaders Luton Town and Barnsley feature same tally, but they held 1 and 2 matches more respectively. Blackpool sit 8th in the table.
Guided by the logics and the sides’ records, a draw seems reasonable. But what is logical is not always correct, therefore, we’d rather not bet on a winner. The guests’ defensive play suggests that the hosts will not be able to attack much, even on their turf. In 14 outings, Blackpool allowed under 2 goals in 9 rounds; of these, they kept 8 clean sheets. In 9 latest rounds, Sunderland failed to score over 1 goal, though they played against the outsiders who missed 43, 48, and 52 goals – mind that all three clashes were held at the Stadium of Light. In 6 encounters of this year, Blackpool attained 11 points, and now they have a chance to advance to knockouts in the end of the season. The team are on the high, and they will desperately fight for points tomorrow. They may even get some. That said, the key to Blackpool’s success will be their thoughtful defense – as a result, the hosts will not manage to score over one goal again.
Prediction for the match: Sunderland to score under 1.5 goal.
