Sunderland vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

  • Blackburn’s last five competitive matches have averaged 3.8 goals per game
  • Over 2.5 match goals has been a winning selection in four of Sunderland’s last five home matches
  • Blackburn recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory when these sides last met in October

Goals expected at the Stadium of Light

Goals are expected at Stadium of Light on Boxing Day, when Sunderland host third-placed, Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn’s last five competitive matches have averaged 3.8 goals per game, while over 2.5 match goals has been a winning selection in four of Sunderland’s last five home matches, with both teams scoring in three of those five contests.

Rovers can capitalise on injury-stricken hosts

Sunderland have thrown up a mixed bag of results since they returned from the winter break (W1, D1, L1) but Tony Mowbray now has further injuries to deal with and Monday’s game could be a big challenge. Elliot Embleton, Danny Batth and Alex Pritchard could all sit out, a big blow for Sunderland who have already tasted defeat against Blackburn this season.

Blackburn are hoping they can complete a relatively quick-fire double over The Black Cats, having already beaten Sunderland in the reverse fixture at Ewood Park, back in the middle of October. Rovers put in an impressive performance in their last league game, away at Norwich, a victory that saw them move up into third in the table, just eight points off league leaders Burnley.

Both teams to score will be the main selection for Monday’s game, with a 2-1 away win forming the correct score prediction.
