Our football match prediction:
After dropping a two-goal advantage in a 3-3 draw with Brentford, Sunderland will be looking to give fans some cheer when they host Bristol City at their Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon. The Black Cats are determined to secure the Championship survival and a win over the Robins could see them escape the relegation zone in the standings. Sunderland are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Bristol City, but beating the seventh-place team is easier said than done. The Robins aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Leeds Unite and we predict that both Sunderland and Bristol City will go for a win in Saturday’s football match. A real football festival is on the cards and we are positive that both sides will find the net in the Stadium of Light clash. In their last meeting in Sunderland the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
