Our football match prediction:
Stadium of Light will host Saturday’s football game between Sunderland and Millwall. The Black Cats are stuck at the bottom of the Championship standings and this has to go down as a must-win game for them. Sunderland suffered a 1-0 loss to Middlesbrough in their last league match and you should bear in mind that they are on a 14-game winless run in the Championship ahead of the visit of the Lions. Millwall aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Burton Albion and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s football match. However, given the importance of the game for the rock-bottom team, we are tempted to put our money on the Black Cats, who are hungry for win. It has to be emphasized that Millwall failed to score in three of their previous away games in the English second tier.
