Our prediction for this League 1 match:
A place in the Championship will be at stake when Charlton Athletic and Sunderland face each other at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Despite failing to impress against Doncaster Rovers in the return leg, The Addicks somehow made it to the League One play-offs final. The capital club are determined to return to the English second tier, but they will have a big fish to fry against Sunderland in the decider.
The Black Cats are enjoying a very successful season and they will be looking to put icing on the cake with a victory over Charlton Athletic. However, the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, therefore, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. In their last meeting in the League One the two teams shared the spoils, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on draw.
Highlighted Player (Jerome Sinclair):
Jerome Sinclair is an English footballer who plays for Watford. The youngster usually operates as a striker and he started his professional career at Liverpool in 2012. After ending his loan spell with Wigan Athletic in 2015, Jerome Sinclair signed a deal with Watford for a fee of £4 million on 30 June, 2016.
The rising star has five caps for the England U17 team and he scored one goal for the Three Lions youth team. Jerome Sinclair was born on 20 September, 1996 in the city of Birmingham and it has to be noted that on 26 September 2012 he broke Jack Robinson’s record as Liverpool’s youngest ever player.
He was 16 years and 6 days old when he came off the bench during the League Cup clash between Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion. Jerome Sinclair has netted a total of 22 goals for Liverpool youth teams, while finding the net for the senior team in the 2015/2016 FA Cup campaign as well.
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.
