Portsmouth vs Sunderland

The downward form is leaving Portsmouth at risk of being kicked out of the group with tickets to the promotion play-off round. In the next round, having to host a Sunderland is playing very well. Obviously, the challenge of coach Kenny Jackett is too great.

Portsmouth vs Sunderland


The last time that Portsmouth played in the Premier League took place 11 years ago, since then the home team Fratton Park has been through many tournaments and is currently playing in League One. It is really a sad ending with Portsmouth, because the reputation of this team is unquestionable. This season with the determination to win promotion tickets to the Championship, Portsmouth has had a relatively impressive performance. They compete fairly with the leading group, before a recent decline. Accordingly, the last 5 rounds of Portsmouth only won 1 draw 1 and lost 3. Since the beginning of the season, coach and coach Kenny Jackett won 15, 7 and lost 10 after 32 appearances. Currently with 52 points, Portsmouth is standing at No. 6 on the chart. This is a sufficient result for Portsmouth to participate in the promotion play-off round. However, they were only 1 point ahead of the team behind Accrington and even played more than 1 match. With the current situation, the pressure on Portsmouth before the reception of Sunderland is enormous.


Similar to his opponent, Sunderland was a familiar group in the Premier League. However, Lee Johnson's teachers and teachers are currently struggling in the League One playground. With his level and experience, Sunderland is playing extremely determined to return to the Championship after this season. Over 32 rounds, the visitors won 15, tied 12 and lost 5. With 57 points in hand, Sunderland is at 4th place in the standings. With 5 points less than the two leading positions, the opportunity is still extremely wide open for coach Lee Johnson and his students. Sunderland's performance is really commendable at this moment, when the last 6 rounds they drew 1 and won 5. Even "Black Cats" also got tickets to the League Trophy final against Tranmere after defeating. Lincoln in the semifinals. The confrontation history is quite balanced, when each team has 2 wins after the last 5 encounters. However, with a better form, Sunderland was able to leave with 3 full points after the next trip.
