Our prediction for this League 1 match:
This match has been postponed.
Highlighted Player (Massimo Luongo):
Born in Sydney, Australia on September 25, 1992 Massimo Luongo attended Waverley College. In 2009 he won the championship with the team and two years later he was spotted by Tottenham Hotspur scouts. In January 2011 Luongo, whose mother is of Indonesian heritage, impressed on trial with Spurs and, as a result, he remained at White Hart Lane. However, did not see any game action for Tottenham Hotspur during his spell with the capital club.
After ending his loan spells with Ipswich Town and Swindon Town, the 176-cm-tall midfielder signed permanent deal with the Robins and you should know that he scored 10 goals in 76 appearances in the league for the club.
In 2015 he returned to London, with the Australian international joining Queens Park Rangers. Luongo scored his first goal for the Hoops in a 5-1 win over Rotherham United on March 18, 2017. The QPR footballer made his Australia debut on March 6, 2014 in a 4-3 defeat to Ecuador. In 2015 he won the AFC Asian Cup with the Socceroos.
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.
