Burton Albion Preview – Can Albion move on to nine?

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink made a huge impact at the Pirelli Stadium after returning last season, and Burton Albion have made a strong start to their 2021-22 League One campaign. The Brewers opened up with a 1-0 away win at Shrewsbury Town.

Burton then beat Ipswich Town at the Pirelli last week to make it six points from a possible six. They took an early lead but were pegged back by the Tractor Boys shortly after. However, Lucas Akins had the last laugh, netting the winner from the penalty spot with four minutes to go.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1304 GMT, Monday 16 August)

After the excellent start, can Burton be the dark horse in the race for promotion this season? They were a Championship club just a few years back, and Hasselbaink’s men will certainly be aiming for a top-six finish.

Sunderland Preview – Will the Black Cats make it four wins in a row?

After missing out on promotion in the play-offs once again last term, can Sunderland finally get over the line this time around? The Black Cats have started extremely well, picking up three wins out of three in all competitions.

Sunderland’s league season started with a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic at the Stadium of Light. They then beat Port Vale away from home by the same scoreline in the first round of the EFL Cup. Sunderland then secured a hat-trick of 2-1 wins last weekend, beating MK Dons at Stadium MK.

Sunderland are again among the favourites for League One promotion this season. With the fans back at the Stadium of Light, the Black Cats will fancy their chances. Can they move on to nine points on Tuesday?


Burton Albion vs Sunderland Betting Advice

These two sides drew 1-1 at the Stadium of Light back in December, with Max Power’s late goal rescuing a point for the Black Cats. However, Sunderland ran riot at the Pirelli in February, with Grant Leadbitter, Lynden Gooch and Charlie Wyke netting in a 3-0 win.

Prior to last February’s triumph, Sunderland had not beaten Burton since November 2017. Overall, Albion have three wins, Sunderland have picked up two victories, and there have been two draws in the seven league meetings.


Key Facts – Burton Albion vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • Sunderland won the last meeting 3-0
  • The Black Cats have won all three league and cup games this term by two goals to one
  • Both teams have taken six points from a possible six so far


With the pair sitting on six points apiece, we should be in for an entertaining affair at the Pirelli. Both teams would love to maintain their winning starts, but we fancy the visitors to return to Wearside with a massive three points. The away win is available at 13/10.

The Brewers have scored in all three of their league and cup games so far, though, and they will back themselves to find the net in front of their home supporters in midweek. Therefore, take a punt on the Sunderland win and both teams to score at 7/2.
