Our Prediction:

Sunderland will win

Peterborough – Sunderland Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 10:00

The Black Cats made a promising start to the season as well and they will be looking to extend their winning run to five games in all competitions when they face the Posh on Matchday 6. An entertaining game is on the cards and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Weston Homes, just like they did in their last meeting in the League One.

Peterborough United are eyeing their first home win of the season, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturdays football match against the promotion-chasing side. The Posh rolled over Southend United (2-0) and Milton Keynes Dons (4-0) in previous two league fixtures, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Sunderland. All eyes will be on Weston Homes when Peterborough United and Sunderland face each other in the League One derby.

Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000. The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Red and White shirts are Sunderlands trademark and the clubs fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997.

Sunderland

Sunderland will of course be tougher to face, though at least Fergusons men go into this game off the back of some good efforts. Its not exactly been plain sailing for Peterborough at home this season, though Posh do come into this game off the back of two very pleasing performance at ABAX Stadium. They made light work of beating Southend at this venue recently, scoring two goals and clocking an impressive 2.83 expected goals for, while much of the same can be said for their 2-0 win over Gillingham a fortnight ago.

The Black Cats did come out on top against Rochdale in their most recent away game, but they were hardly convincing, as they clocked a measly 0.84 expected goals for. Theyre not easy to beat, but they certainly dont always make light work of beating teams, which doesnt exactly bode well ahead of a match against a Peterborough side that has played very well in recent weeks. In terms of quality, Sunderland have plenty to offer; players such as Aiden McGeady and George Honeyman are among the best in the division, but even with such talent, Jack Ross men havent always been fluent on the road, as five draws in their last eight suggests.

If they can get the better of Sunderland on Monday, then Posh will certainly be in with a chance of finishing in the fourth and final play-off spot. That said, theyre just four points behind Doncaster, whove played a game more than Darren Fergusons men. Despite a reasonably solid campaign, Peterborough arent quite on course to meet their main objective, which was to finish in the play-off places.

Highlighted Team (Sunderland):

Theyre not easy to beat, but they certainly dont always make light work of beating teams, which doesnt exactly bode well ahead of a match against a Peterborough side that has played very well in recent weeks.

The Black Cats did come out on top against Rochdale in their most recent away game, but they were hardly convincing, as they clocked a measly 0.84 expected goals for.

If we look at Peterboroughs underlying numbers at home; theyve averaged a rather poor 1.24 expected goals for and have shipped an average of 1.47, then its easy to see this is a big opportunity for the visitors, which in a way it is, though considering that Sunderland average just 1.17 expected goals for on their travels and have shipped an average of 1.36, its tough to get with the Black Cats at the current prices.

Furthermore, they were a bit unlucky to concede, as they gave up just 0.53. If they can repeat such efforts on Monday, then theyve got every chance of getting a decent result. Peterborough did take just a point from their match away against Fleetwood on Good Friday, though their performance was an encouraging one. Against a side that didnt worry too much about getting forward and creating opportunities, Posh had to work hard, but they created some decent openings, as they clocked a respectable 1.89 expected goals for.
