Sunderland vs Leicester City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

The Foxes visit the Black Cats in one of the biggest games of the week!

A struggling Sunderland, trying to not fall out of the playoff race, will host a suddenly vulnerable Leicester City in what might be the biggest game of Week 36. Game at Stadium of Light will begin on Tuesday, March 5, at 8:45pm CET.

Sunderland

Being relegated from the Premier League in 2017 set up an eventual Sunderland’ downfall, as they ended up being in League One until the end of the 2021-2022 season. 

This year looked promising for a while before the Black Cats lost four in a row, including a last week «0-1» defeat to Norwich City, as Sunderland is now right between the playoffs and the relegations, with the league leaders coming to Tyne and Wear on Tuesday.

Leicester City

A stunning exit from the Premier League last season has not stopped Leicester City from focusing on their goals, as the Foxes are looking to go back to the top flight just one year later.

The job, however, is far from being finished, despite Leicester still being up five points on the third place Leeds United. The Foxes lost three in a row, including a pair of home defeats to Middlesbrough and Queens Park Rangers, but will visit the Stadium of Light in an attempt to stabilize the freefall.

Prediction ⚽️

WIth the top-ranked attack being considerably slowed down in the recent weeks, Leicester City might have some issues with the Sunderland’ defense, which has allowed the fourth least goals in the league.

However, we will still side with the Foxes to end their funk and secure a win with 1.78 odds 🔥.
