Our prediction for this Championship match:
Sunday’s football game between Norwich City and Sunderland will bring down the curtain on the Championship round 36. The Canaries have found their best form of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Teemu Pukki should continue to lead the line for the hosts, while all Sam Byram, Isaac Hyden, Jon Rowe, and Przemyslaw Placheta remain in the recovery room.
The Black Cats, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Stoke City, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the playoffs-chasing hosts. As for the away team, all Corry Evans, Ross Stewart, Lynden Gooch, and Elliot Embleton are out of contention through injuries. In the first half of the season the Canaries defeated the Black Cats thanks to Joshua Sargent’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Max Aarons):
London Born Max Aarons is an English professional footballer who has represented England at the under-19 and under-21 level. At the club level, the right-back who was born on the 4th of January, 2000, started his youth career with Luton Town in 2009.
After seven years of development, he left Luton to join Norwich City in 2016 and broke into their first-team set up two years later. He made his professional debut for the Canaries on the 2nd of September, 2018, featuring in their 1-1 draw against Ipswich Town. He has since made a total of 50 appearances and is currently on a contract with the club that expires in 2024.
His performance in the 18/19 season is what earned the 19-year-old a call-up to the England Under-21 setup, making his debut for the same in an Under-21 European Qualifier against Turkey U21 on the 6th of September, 2019.
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. Sunderland won their first FA Cup trophy in 1937, with the team beating Preston North End 3-1 in the title game. The club was founded in 1879 as Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C.
