Sunderland v Portsmouth10/05/2019 19:30
What a game we have for the late playoff match at the Stadium of Light. If this season’s stats are anything to go by, both teams will get on the scoresheet tomorrow night.
Sunderland have seen both teams score in 74% of their home games this season (the highest in the league) and Portsmouth have seen BTS in 78% of their away games (the highest in the league).
Yes, the first legs of playoffs can sometimes be cagey and reserved, but I still think both teams are capable of getting at least one goal each tomorrow.
Sunderland scored in all of their home league games in the season while Portsmouth have scored in all but two of their away games in the league.
Both sides are capable going forward, but they do tend to concede a goal or two, especially towards the end of the season.
Pompey only kept one clean sheet in their last 14 away games.
Similarly, Sunderland only kept one clean sheet in their last eight games while seeing both teams score in seven of those matches.
There is certainly value in both teams scoring tonight, let’s hope the early nerves pass and the game opens up.
