Newcastle vs Manchester United – Premier League: In one of this Sunday’s matches in England, counting towards the Premier League’s 27th round.
The local side Newcastle and the visiting side Man United face off in the city of Newcastle, at the St. James Park,
on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd occasion this season, with Mourinho’s team winning that first encounter 4-1 over Benítez’s team.
The home side is in 16th place, with 25 points, while the visitors are in 2nd place with 56 points.
The home side is making a campaign well below what was expected from them on their return to the top tier of English football, staying on an intense fight to avoid relegation with another set of teams, struggling really hard, especially on the last few rounds, to ensure enough points to get closer to that objective.
Benítez’s team doesn’t have one of the best offensive records (only 3 or 4 teams have worse records), with the team being winless for 4 rounds in the Premier League.
As for the visiting side, they are making a globally positive campaign, although they can no longer win the title, due to the consistency of Guardiola’s team.
In any way, the team is well on its way to ensure qualification to next year’s Champions League, although the fight for the access spots is very competitive, which means the team has to be on the lookout for that situation.
The team is on a good moment of form, recording only 1 loss in the past two months roughly.
Newcastle vs Manchester United – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon a Newcastle on a terrible moment of form and with a Man United who is forced to win due to the fierce competitiveness for the Champions League’s spots,
I can only see a win for the visitors in Newcastle, although with great difficulties in my opinion.
