Match Preview & Team News
Sunderland FC are one of the main candidates to earn direct promotion from League One to the Championship this season. The Black Cats are currently 4th after beating Portsmouth in big derby match on 9th March. Overall, their form has improved drastically in comparison to early 2021. This is very specific competition though so we shouldn’t be looking at divisional games that much. Tranmere are in League Two at the moment, also belonging to top tier there. Read on our EFL Trophy betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
On their path to the finals Sunderland managed to beat Oldham Athletic, Portsmouth FC, Milton Keynes Dons and Lincoln City. They have scored at least two goals in every single duel except in the semi-finals. The main roster has kept five clean sheets in the last six games though, which surely was a big boost for confidence and team spirits. Interestingly, the last ten head to head encounters against Tranmere Rovers have ended with BTTS NO option. A big majority of those games also ended Under 2.5 FT. As for their opponents, they eliminated Wigan Athletic, Manchester City U21, Leicester City U21, Peterborough and Oxford to reach the grand finals. Tranmere are currently 4th in League Two, and have a solid chance to earn promotion this year.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
As mentioned above, Sunderland FC have been fantastic when it comes to defending lately with so many clean sheets. We feel very confident to choose Under 2.5 FT tip at 9/10 rate.
Sunderland are way above Tranmere when it comes to quality, having great +25 goal difference while playing in division above the opposition. We will back Black Cats to win this match and EFL Trophy at 9/10 odds.
