Swansea City vs Sunderland Predictions

  • Both teams have not scored in Swansea’s last four home league games.
  • Sunderland have kept clean sheets in four of their last six Championship contests.
  • Sunderland have failed to score in four of their last seven matches.

Swans swimming upstream under Martin

Swansea might find it hard to break down a Sunderland side that have shifted focus on to their defence while they cope without some important attackers in Saturday’s clash in South Wales.

The Swans have swum upstream to join the promotion hunt and go into this clash in the last playoff position, one point and two places above the Black Cats. Four wins out of five since the start of September have shown some other clubs the benefits of patience as Swansea have overtaken at least three clubs that dispensed with their bosses in the meantime.

Not that it ever felt Russell Martin was in trouble at Swansea.com Stadium because his team were still playing slick passing football while winning only one of their first seven league games, but the defensive blunders have now been largely eradicated.

Sunderland must soldier on without a strikeforce

That quality feeds into the belief that this game will be low on the goals tally as Sunderland come in off the back of two 0-0 draws at the Stadium of Light. Manager Tony Mowbray has been denied the services of his only two senior strikers – Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms – and it shows.

Until the next transfer window opens or one of them recovers, the promoted club must soldier on with what they have got and it may not be enough to trouble Swansea. Hence the correct score prediction of a 1-0 Swansea win for this duel and the main bet recommendation being to back both teams not to score.

‘BTTS – no’ has landed in Swansea’s last four home games and seven of Sunderland’s last eight overall – making the even money quote worth upping your stake for.
