Newcastle vs Burnley – Premier League: In one of the matches that opens up this Wednesday of matches, in England
Counting towards the Premier League’s 20th round, the local side Newcastle and the visiting side Burnley face off in the city of Newcastle, at St. James Park,
on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season, after their first encounter in Burnley that ended with a 1-0 win for Burnley.
The home side is in 15th place on the Premier League, with 23 points conquered, while the visiting side is in 8th place with 34 points.
The home team is making a season somewhat below what they would certainly like, in what is their return to the top tier of English football, being on a poor position,
roughly in the middle of the bottom half of the league table and having a very short advantage over their more direct pursuers on the fight to avoid relegation.
The team, after a good streak of results and objectiveness, is now on a less positive streak of matches, not winning on their last 3 matches, 2 of them counting towards the Premier League.
As for Burnley, after an epic start to the season, with a fantastic ability to cause problems to every team, namely even the big teams, they are now on a less exciting streak of results,
not winning on the last 7 rounds and having gotten 4 losses on their last 4 matches, 3 of them being Premier League matches.
Newcastle vs Burnley – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon a Burnley that is a very solid team on the defensive point of view (something that was their highest point on this remarkable campaign on this competition and that allows them to be in this position on the league table, more than anything else),
I believe that Newcastle will have some difficulties to create a lot of goal chances, just like the visitors, since they are the worst attack of the competition after Brighton and Swansea, which leads me to believe this will be a low-scoring affair.
