Sheffield United Preview – Blades to make home advantage count in midweek?

Sheffield United’s season started with a narrow loss to Watford at Vicarage Road. However, Paul Heckingbottom’s men have bounced back well, taking four points from the following two league fixtures.

In their opening home match of the season, United beat Millwall 2-0, with Iliman Ndiaye and Sander Berge on target. The Sheffield side kicked on from that one by taking a point against Middlesbrough in an eventful game at the Riverside Stadium last week. The Blades were pegged back twice in the 2-2 draw.

Our betting prediction:
Sheffield United to win by one goal

(odds taken 1507 GMT, Tuesday 16 August)

Having collected four points from two games after starting with a loss, Sheffield United will want to keep the momentum ticking with a positive result on home soil this Wednesday. The hosts are fancied with the bookies at 3/4.

Sunderland Preview – Can the Mackems stay unbeaten?

Sunderland are finally back in the Championship after winning the EFL League One play-offs last term. Staying in the second tier will be number one priority, but the Black Cats could be a dark horse in the race for promotion this season.

Alex Neil’s Sunderland were held to a 1-1 draw by Coventry City on matchday one. They were excellent at Bristol City in game two, leaving with all three points after a 3-2 win. The Mackems were 2-0 up against Queens Park Rangers last Saturday with just three minutes to go, but two late QPR goals – including a last-gasp header from goalkeeper Timothy Dieng – stole a point for the Londoners.

Sunderland will still be hurting from last weekend’s terrible ending to the game against QPR. Nevertheless, can they strike back with a positive result and remain unbeaten?


Sheffield United vs Sunderland Betting Advice

Sheffield United and Sunderland have not met in the league since the Blades romped to a 3-0 home win back in December 2017. United also won the reverse match at the Stadium of Light, with Clayton Donaldson grabbing a brace.

They have squared off once since then – in an EFL Cup matchup in September 2019, League One Sunderland got the better of Premier League United at Bramall Lane, with Max Power netting the only goal of the tie.


Key Facts – Sheffield United vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • Both clubs have taken four points from their last two games
  • Sheffield United beat Millwall in their opening home match

Sander Berge has been in red-hot form in front of goal this term, netting against Millwall and Middlesbrough. The Norwegian is available at 10/3 to score anytime again in this one.
