Reason For Sunderland vs Hull City Predictions

  • Sunderland lost just twice in 22 home fixtures last season in all competitions.
  • Hull City were beaten in 18 of their last 22 competitive matches.
  • Sunderland averaged 2.125 goals per 90 minutes in their final eight home games last term.

Sunderland targeting cup scalp

After a heart-breaking end to the 2019/20 season where they missed out on a possible League One playoff spot following the cancellation of the competition, Sunderland begin a fresh domestic campaign with a Carabao Cup tie at home to Hull City this weekend.

The Black Cats proved a tough nut to crack on their own patch last term, losing just twice in 22 fixtures on Wearside in all competitions, and Sunderland will hope to harness home advantage again when they host Hull on Saturday.

The Tigers have had to endure a nightmare 2020 so far, where a record of 18 defeats in their last 22 games has decimated confidence levels in their squad.

Hull boss Grant McCann will hope that some of the fractures in his players’ self-belief would have been repaired in the off-season, though Sunderland will be smelling blood this weekend and are worth backing to record a cup victory over their fragile opponents at the Stadium of Light, while our correct score prediction tips the hosts to earn a 2-1 victory.

Sunderland averaged 2.125 goals per 90 minutes across their final eight home assignments of the 2019/20 season, and another brace should allow them to progress to the next round of the Carabao Cup at Hull’s expense on Saturday.
