Sunderland take on Derby on Friday night in the season opener of the Championship season, and with both sides looking for a return to the top flight, each will be eager to get their seasons off to winning ways as Bet365 report a Sunderland v Derby Live Stream service for punters and fans of the Championship.
For the Black Cats, its been a post season of transition, having been relegated from the Premier League last season and manager David Moyes has left the club.
Top striker Jermaine Defoe has also left the north east club having joined Bournemouth in the summer, and so really Sunderland are looking to build for the future, at least regain some stability.
Simon Grayson has been brought in and the ex Preston boss has plenty of Championship experience – just what the club needs at the moment.
As for Derby, the same can be said with Steve McLaren leaving and Gary Rowett coming in to steady the ship.
The Rams have been there or thereabouts for the last few seasons, and this year Rams fans will finally be hopeful that the club can mount a realistic promotion challenge.
As regards the odds, Sunderland are the favourites to win the match at odds of 11/8, which surely will appeal to those home win backers, while the Derby away win can be backed at 12/5, with the draw available at 5/2.
Its 4/5 that both teams manager to find the net, while the under 1.5 looks plenty of value at 12/5.
It should prove to be an intriguing matchup in the Championship opener with both sides certainly have potential.
Can Sunderland put their disastrous Premier League campaign behind them and the new season off to an opening day win?
We’ll find out Friday.

Derby v Ipswich Highlights
After three years in the Premier League, Norwich go into the match as slight favourites and did the double over Ipswich four years ago.

Ipswich 0 Derby County 1
Nottingham Forest are the current league leaders, after an impressive midweek win away to AFC Bournemouth.
Britt Assombalonga scored his third goal for the club since becoming the most expensive player in the clubs history and his form could determine how close they get to the Premier League.
Stuart Pearce’s men host Reading on Saturday, who were surprisingly beaten by Huddersfield on Tuesday evening.
Of the three sides relegated from the Premier League, Cardiff have made the best start, claiming seven points from a possible nine.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men travel to Wolves this weekend a win for the hosts would see them overtake Cardiff.
Unlike Cardiff, Fulham have made an awful start to the season, losing all three matches and are only off bottom on goal difference.
It doesn’t get any easier for Felix Magath’s men as they travel to last campaign’s beaten play-off finalists Derby County.
Blackpool are rock bottom, which is no surprise given their awful pre-season where they struggled to build a squad.
They travel to Wigan Athletic on the weekend, who themselves have just one point from their first three matches.
Charlton Athletic and Millwall were expected to finish in the bottom half of the table, however sit joint top at this early stage of the season.
Charlton travel to managerless Huddersfield, as for Millwall they are at home to Rotherham United.

Derby v Watford Live Stream, Team News, Match Preview
Derby take on Watford tonight in what looks like being the game of the day as both these sides have claims on taking the Championship title this season, with the match live streaming.
For Derby a win is an absolute must as they must get back into winning ways, with Steve McClaren’s side now six games without a win, which includes four losses for the Rams. The side now finds itself in fifth place in the Championship, still in the playoff places but fans must be worried as they look over their shoulders at the chasing pack.
Much of the decline of Derby in recent weeks has been the injury to 19 goal man Chris Martin, but the good news is that he will return today from his troublesome hamstring injury and that could spell danger for Hornets fans.
It’s been good to see them out there training, They have had a good full week’s work and are available for the Watford game. That is a tough decision to make.
Chrissy has been out eight weeks, 11 games, so we have got to be careful with him.Decisions will be finalised on Friday.
Midfielder John Eustace (knee) is not yet ready for a return to action.
Watford are still riding high in second place but come into this game on the back of a disappointing loss at home to Ipswich, which was only their first loss in their last seven, but they are still strongly placed to mount a serious charge on automatic promotion.
Don’t forget that there is live streaming available on the game from Bet365, country restrictions apply.
