Sunderland v Newcastle United Preview, Premiership, Sunday 5th April 2015.

The hour is late for Sunderland who now enter a serious crisis situation with them just one point away from a relegation position. The do welcome their bitter rivals to the Stadium of Light this Sunday in a bid to once again create some magic in hopes of a win. Something they haven’t witnessed in the Premiership since beating Burnley 2 – 0 back at the end of January. In their last five Premiership games they have only managed to win two points with draws against West Bromwich Albion and Hull City away, and it was the 4 – 0 hammering at home against Aston Villa that eventually see the dismissal of manager Gus Poyet.

Newcastle United are not exactly doing much better than their Sunday opponents, and have only won the once in their last five league games and even that was only against the struggling Aston Villa 1 – 0. They have lost the other five games and with that have only managed to score a total of two goals, while conceding elven! This will be a must win game for Newcastle United as after this they travel to Liverpool and then host Tottenham Hotspurs which will both be extremely tough games. With eight games remaining they are still not safe from relegation, even though they are ten points above Burnley who occupy 18th.

Sunderland Team News:

Sunderland have a trio of injuries right now with Argentine Ricardo Alvarez the first due to a knee issue. We then have Englishman William Buckley who has suffered a knock, while the Italian Emanuele Giaccherini has an ankle injury.

Club captain Coloccini has been suspended after earning a straight red against Everton. While Papiss Cisse is also suspended due to a yellow card limit.

Only the last result between these two sides has thrown that prediction out slightly, but with the way both sides are drawing the below option could very well be a worth while selection.

Sunderland v Newcastle United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Premiership action this Sunday afternoon comes to us live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition and features an exciting derby match between home side Sunderland, verses bitter rivals Newcastle United. The away side Newcastle have not beaten Sunderland either home or away in any of their last six Premier League fixtures, with the last victory coming back in 2011 when they won 1 – 0 away from home. This will of course be a bitter statistic for Newcastle United fans who are extremely passionate about beating and dominating rivals Sunderland in the past.

Both sides are in terrible form right now although Newcastle United are in the better situation with them currently ten points outside the relegation battle. Where as Sunderland are in a serious situation with them only one point ahead of Burnley who are currently in eighteenth, a relegation spot. Sunderland are the favourites to win by the bookmakers although you cannot ever dismiss their opponents Newcastle United who will be looking for some much needed revenge.

My predictions for this Sundays derby between Sunderland and Newcastle United will of course back both sides to come out of this match with something. The first will be for a Sunderland win of some sort, although can they really make it five wins out of their last five meetings against their biggest rivals? So for that one I am going to go for a Sunderland 2 – 1 victory as I feel that is more than doable come Sunday. The next will be for Newcastle United to win and with both teams scoring on the day.
