Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Sunderland and Hull square off against each other in the Carabao Cup round 1. The Black Cats were more than unfortunate not to secure promotion to the Championship, but they are seen as No. 1 favourites to do so in the upcoming season. Sunderland head into the match following back-to-back pre-season wins over Gateshead and Harrogate, meaning that they are high on spirits.
The Tigers, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the last season finale, and, as a result, they suffered relegation to the English third tier. Given the atmosphere in the away team’s dressing room, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Black Cats. In their last encounter in the Championship Sunderland outplayed Hull City 1-0, and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself.
