Gloucester badly need to rediscover some form because their chances of securing a top-four finish this season in the Gallagher Premiership are starting to fade. Sale are trying to lock down second place in the table and will do their own ambitions the power of good with a victory at Kingsholm.

Gloucester are under pressure

It is a three-match losing streak of top-flight action that Gloucester currently find themselves on. The Cherry & Whites start round 12 six points outside of the top four. A loss here to one of the teams above them could be massively damaging.

While they have been fairly sound in defence, actually holding the joint-best record of fewest tries conceded, their attacking output hasn’t quite been where they would like it. Bath are the only team in the top nine to have scored fewer points than Gloucester have.

Our betting prediction:
Sale 1-7 Winning Margin

(odds taken 2020 GMT, Wednesday 26th February)

Gloucester suffered a home defeat against Exeter in the last round of action. The last time that they lost consecutive league games at Kingsholm was back in 2016, which is a superb record.

The Cherry & Whites did also win at Sale on the opening weekend of this season. They took an 18-16 victory in that match. The last time that they pulled off a double over the Sharks was in the 2016/17 season. How badly they need a repeat of that.


Sale can take a bite out of Gloucester

Sale won their last visit to Kingsholm. That was last season when they banked a superb 30-15 victory there. That snapped a winless streak there that they had been on since 2013.

Sale start the weekend in second place in the table, eight points back of leaders Exeter. So at this point, it is more about consolidating a top-four finish than anything else.

There’s such a tight, competitive race going on in that area of the top fight.

Before their home loss against Gloucester in round 1 of action this season, Sale had taken back to back league wins over the Cherry & Whites.

Interestingly it is Sale who holds the joint-best record of fewest tries conceded along with Gloucester.

Sale do look as if they could have the advantage in the kicking department here, keeping that scoreboard ticking over away from home is always a crucial thing.

They can get close to a victory in Gloucestershire, even though just 6 of their previous 21 wins over the Cherry & Whites have been away.


Gloucester vs Sale Sharks Betting Advice

Gloucester aren’t quite there with a cohesive plan at the moment and morale doesn’t look to be that high. There are likely to give up chances and Sale could have enough about them to sneak by them and get the win.


Key Facts – Gloucester vs Sale Sharks Betting Tip
