Supercomputer predicts Sunderland, Sheffield United, Middlesbrough and Watford’s Championship finishing positions ahead of return
The Championship is back this weekend with the first round of games in a packed pre-World Cup fixture schedule.
The first international break of the season has passed and Sunderland now face a slightly kind fixture list that pits them against teams below them in the table.
Whilst Tony Mowbray’s side won’t underestimate their opponents, it does give them a real chance of putting points on the board and strengthening their claim to a top-half finish.
The Championship, as ever, has proved to be a really tight league this season with just five points separating Sunderland in 5th place to Middlesbrough who currently occupy 22nd in the table.
Here, we take a look at the latest supercomputer predictions, courtesy of FiveThirtyEight, to see where Sunderland have been predicted to finish the 2022/23 season.
