Burton Albion vs Sunderland Betting Tips: Form Guide

Brewers Battling To Climb Table

Burton boss Nigel Clough has asserted in the lead-up to this match that he believes Sunderland are one of the favourites for promotion from League One this season. Clough also highlighted the difference in size of the two clubs, reminding reporters that Sunderland’s usual home crowd of around 30,000 is about ten times the size of Burton’s. Clough is a manager who relishes David against Goliath scenarios, though, and his words will have been delivered with intent. He would certainly like it if Sunderland went into this game with a touch of complacency.

Since losing away at Oxford United on August 25, Burton have improved. They knocked Championship side Aston Villa out of the League Cup, winning 1-0 at the Pirelli Stadium. They then won 3-0 at home to Wimbledon in the league, before losing 1-0 to Walsall in the Checkatrade Trophy. Last weekend, they travelled to Lancashire to face Accrington Stanley in the league, and came away with an important away point, drawing 1-1.

Burton have taken seven points from their seven games in League One so far this season, scoring eight goals and conceding two. They have won two games, drawn one and lost four.

Ross Has Started His Sunderland Reign Well

The Black Cats are one of five teams in League One who are currently unbeaten. The Black Cats have won four and drawn three of their seven league games so far in 2018/19, giving them a total of 15 points. Manager Jack Ross, who joined the club from Scottish Premiership outfit St Mirren in the close season, must be delighted with the start he has made to his reign as the Mackems’ manager. The challenge for him and his team now is to sustain this form, and make sure that they win promotion at the end of the season. One senses that nothing less will do for the club’s fans and directors. Sunderland is too big a club to be stuck down at League One level for too long.

The Black Cats have drawn their last three games in all competitions, with two of those matches being in League One. They have drawn both of their last league matches, both at home, and both 1-1, against Oxford United and Fleetwood Town. They also drew 0-0 with Stoke City U-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy, a game which was in between those two league matches.

Burton Albion vs Sunderland Preview: Recent Meetings

These two clubs have only met on two previous occasions in their history, with both of those games being in the Championship last season. Both sides, of course, went on to be relegated from the division by the time the end of the 2017/18 season rolled round.

The first clash was at the Pirelli Stadium in November, 2017. Sunderland came away with a 2-0 win, though they left it late to claim the points. James Vaughan scored the Black Cats’ first goal in the 84th minute, before George Honeyman added a second four minutes later.

The second game was at the Stadium of Light in April 2018. This time Burton left it late to clinch the victory. Sunderland were leading 1-0, thanks to a 34th minute strike from Paddy McNair, until two goals, from Darren Bent and Liam Boyce, in the last five minutes of the game clinched a 2-1 win for the Brewers.

Burton Albion vs Sunderland Prediction: [Three Word Prediction; i.e. “Narrow Home Win”]

If you’re looking for Burton Albion vs Sunderland betting tips for today, then it is probably a good idea to back the Black Cats to come out on top in this League One tussle. Burton have been improving recently, but the visitors should still have too much all-round quality for them to cope with. Nigel Clough is sure to have a plan in place for the Brewers, and they may frustrate the visitors for long periods. In the end, though, Sunderland will be able to crack open the Albion defence, and should be travelling back to Wearside with a 2-0 victory to celebrate on the long journey home.
