Newcastle United Prediction

Newcastle United earned a point in a 1-1 draw away at Brighton last weekend which extended The Magpies’ unbeaten run in the Premier League to three matches following back-to-back wins against Leicester City and Southampton in recent weeks.

This is Newcastle’s final home match of the season and the hosts can play without fear on Saturday evening as their top flight safety was confirmed a few matches ago, and Rafa Benitez would like nothing better than to get one over his old club here.

The hosts look in good shape to get something from this clash too as they’ve won 6 of their last 7 matches at home amidst an ever improving home record that now stands at 8-1-9 22/22, with notable recent home wins over Manchester City and Everton.

Forwards Rondon (11 goals) and Perez (9 goals) look the most likely for the hosts here, but even if they don’t win, Newcastle look set to cover the handicap as they’ve lost just 2 of their 18 home matches by 2+ goals or more.

Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has a tough decision to make in terms of selecting personnel for this trip to Newcastle United as The Reds chase the Premier League title but also find themselves chasing the 2nd leg of their semi-final clash with Barcelona in the Champions League.

Liverpool’s heavy 3-0 defeat away at Barcelona in the 1st leg in midweek may just clarify Klopp’s priorities here, and the likes of Mane, Firmino and Salah are all expected to start at Newcastle, but whether they’ll all play the full 90 minutes remains to be seen.

Nevertheless, Liverpool’s overall form on the domestic front remains supreme as the visitors have won their last 7 matches on the trot overall, while away from home, Liverpool have collected wins at Fulham, Southampton and Cardiff City amidst an impressive away record of 12-5-1 31/10.

However, Liverpool may not get it all their own way at St James’ Park this evening as they’ve failed to beat Newcastle United in their last 4 visits to the north-east.

  • Newcastle United have won 6 of their last 7 home matches in the EPL

Betting Tips Verdict
