Birmingham City will go head to head with Sunderland in the Championship on Friday, as one of the last few game-weeks before the World Cup looms over. The smartest transfer spenders of the summer, Birmingham are clearly not reaping their rewards for investments made. The Blues are sitting 10th on the league table with just seven wins from 20 games played. In fact, Sunderland who sits seven positions below them has won just one lesser game than their counterparts. At this very venue, Birmingham has been under even bigger pressure, winning just thrice in ten fixtures played. The biggest talking point of the game though will be Sunderland's fantastic away record. As impossible as it may seem, the 17th-placed Championship would have actually ranked fifth if only their away record would have been considered (14 points from 10 outings).

Birmingham City vs Sunderland Betting Tips - BTTS

Birmingham are coming into this game with a four-game unbeaten run, so Sunderland's away record could maximum get them a draw here. But, the tenants of the Stadium of Light have scored in each of the last three meetings with Birmingham, proving themselves to be a stringent opponent to face, whether home or away. Five of the last seven meetings between the two sides have thus ended in both sides scoring. Sunderland's away record gives a lot of evidence that this might be a difficult game for Birmingham, even if they get a late win. The Blues are sure to concede at least one goal, irrespective of how many they score. We would go for a BTTS bet in this game with a 1-1 draw on cards, as Sunderland have not seen over 2.5 goals in four of their last five games coming into this one.

Birmingham City Team News

Both Scott Hogan and Troy Deeney were on the scoresheet against Swansea, and everything was going to plan if not for Swansea to bounce back and earn a point. Hogan has 10 goals and assists this season in the Championship now, leaving Troy Deeney in the supporting role with just four goal contributions to his name. It is the Manchester United academy starlets performing in the centre of the park as Tahith Chong continues to make 1.8 key passes per game, while Hannibal Mejbri has been involved mostly in recovering possessions and hard tackling to win the ball from the opposition. Birmingham's loan business this summer has been working well.

Players to watch: Scott Hogan, Hannibal Mejbri, Tahith Chong

Sunderland Team News

Sunderland were absolutely pathetic against Cardiff City as they failed to make even an impact in the home game, let alone score a goal. Even their top goalscorer Jack Clarke had no answer to the marking Cardiff had created around their penalty area to nullify the home side. Clarke has 10 goals and assists this season, as he rivals Scott Hogan on the other side to a race to a higher goal contribution number. Clarke is only second to Alex Pritchard in chance creation too. Pritchard creates an average of 2.1 chances per game for his side. From a defensive point of view, the most hard-working player on the pitch finally gets his recognition. Luke O'Nien intercepts an average of 2.2 key passes from the opponents every game.

Players to watch: Jack Clarke, Alex Pritchard, Luke O'Nien
