Saracens vs Sale Sharks Predictions


This should be a tight contest but over the course of 80 minutes I'm backing Saracens to be too good.

  • Saracens have won 16 of their last 21 matches in the Premiership.
  • Saracens have won 3 of the last 4 head-to-head matches.
  • Saracens have covered the –4.5 handicap in 2 of their last 3 matches in the Premiership.

Head-to-Head


Saracens hold a 41-20 advantage with 2 draws in the 63 meetings between the sides.

Sale won the last match at home by 35-24.

Saracens Form


Sarries qualified in first place on the table and coasted through their semi-final. They have won sixteen of their twenty-one matches in the Premiership this season.

Results of late include a 38-29 away loss at Northampton Saints and a 45-21 home win over London Irish. A weakened match day squad would then lose 61-29 at Bath in the next match.

Their last match was a 38-15 semi-final win over Northampton Saints. A brilliant first set up the win as Saracens flexed their muscle and dominated the match from start to finish. The Londoners would cross the try line five times on their way to claiming a dominant win.

Saracens Team News


Saracens will make plenty of changes from their last fixture with their stars returning.

Sale Sharks Form


The Sharks were not too far behind Sarries as they finished in second place and have won a total of fifteen matches from their twenty-one matches enroute to the final.

A 36-20 away win at Bristol was followed by a 25-22 away win at Gloucester. The Sharks would then beat Newcastle Falcons 54-12 at home subsequently.

The last result was a 21-13 home win over Leicester Tigers in the semi-finals. A tight match was expected as both sides duked it out. The Sharks capitalised on ill-discipline and had just a little bit more quality on display as their two tries was enough to get them over the line.

Sale Sharks Team News


I expect Sale to go into the final with the same squad that featured in the semi-final.

Verdict

Saracens are seasoned veterans in finals at Twickenham and I expect them to cover the handicap here.
