Our football match prediction:
Brentford play host to Sunderland at their Griffin Park on day 13 of the new Championship campaign. The Bees aim to build on a 1-0 win over Millwall and they are seen as favourites on paper to win Saturday’s football match. Brentford aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth and we predict that they will leave their hearts on the field against Sunderland. The Black Cats are having yet another season to forget and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure the Championship survival. The Stadium of Light outfit have been struggling at the back in the first half of the season and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Brentford’ party at Griffin Park. Sunderland conceded seven goals in total in previous two away games in the Championship and, taking everything into account, home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Josh McEachran):
Josh McEachran is a professional football player who was born on 1 March, 1993. The English footballer plays as central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. McEachran is a product of Chelsea youth school, but he made no more than 11 appearances for the senior squad at Stamford Bridge. After spending several seasons on loan at Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Watford, Wigan and Vitesse, he signed a four-year deal with Brentford on 10 July 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Just 15 days later he suffered a fractured foot and, as a result, he was out of contention for three months. McEachran made his Brentford debut on 15 December in a 2-1 win over Reading and he went on to make 14 appearances for the Bees in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign. Josh was born in Kirtlington, Oxfordshire, England, but his parents are Scottish. The Brentford midfielder was in a relationship with English actress Brooke Vincent.
Highlighted Team (Sunderland):
Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000. Red and White shirts are Sunderland’s trademark and the club’s fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation. The Black Cats have won six First Division trophies (now the Premier League), with the team lifting two FA Cup titles. Sudnerland won their first FA Cup trophy in 1937, with the team beating Prestson North End 3-1 in the title game. The club was founded in 1879 as Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C.
