Newcastle vs Leeds: will the ‘’The Magpies’’ win?

In one of the matches of the 20th round of the Premier League, which will take place on January 26, "Newcastle" will host "Leeds". We studied the opponents and made a prediction.

 

Newcastle United

Just a couple of days ago, "The Magpies" played a missed match with "Aston Villa" in the championship, which ended in another fiasco for Steve Bruce's team. Against Birmingham team, "Newcastle" looked rather pale, and the defeat (0:2) was completely expected. 

It is obvious that Steve Bruce is failing to stabilize the game of his players and get the team out of the crisis. Therefore, the question of his resignation is already real, because the position in the standings becomes more and more unattractive with each round. At the moment, "Newcastle" is in 16th place, ahead of the group of outsiders by only seven points. However, "Fulham" played one match less, so this is actually only four points of advantage. 

The failure in the match against "Aston Villa" was the fourth in a row for "The Magpies" in the Premier League, and if to add the FA Cup defeat to Arsenal (0:2 in extra time), they lost five matches. In the championship, "Newcastle" also lost to "Leicester" (1:2), "Sheffield United" (0:1), "Arsenal" (0:3).

The players’ effectiveness is weak. For the six previous rounds, they made just one accurate score. According to this statistics, "Newcastle" is the 5th team in the championship from the bottom of the standings. Only a three outsiders and "Burnley" scored less than "The Magpies".

"Newcastle" has few personnel losses. Two defenders Federico Fernandez and Paul Dummett are injured. The participation of two more defenders, Ciaran Clark and DeAndre Yedlin, is in question. 

 

Leeds United

In the current championship "The Peacocks" returned to the Premier League and are still successfully trying to gain a foothold here. The last segment of the championship turned out to be not the best for "Leeds". Marcelo Bielsa's players have lost three matches in a row. In the Premier League, they lost to "Tottenham" (0:3) and "Brighton" (0:1), and to "Crawley Town" in the FA Cup, losing with a crushing result (0:3).

Despite the fact that "Leeds" players do not score in three matches in a row, still the matches with them are the most productive ones in the championship. On average, 3.56 goals are scored per match.

"Leeds" plays away with varying success. Bielsa's guys lost in five matches out of the nine on the rivals' fields, moreover four of the matches they lost to the top teams of the Premier League.

"Leeds" is now in the 12th place in the standings, with 23 points.

The main goalkeeper Illan Meslier got to the team's infirmary, where there are also Robin Koch, Adam Forshaw and Gaetano Berardi.

Our Prediction

"Leeds" plays very well in attack this season. The team skillfully uses the opponents' mistakes and practically did not lose away to opponents of the "Newcastle" level. "Peacocks" rested for ten days, unlike "The Magpies", which played on January 23rd. "Newcastle" now has serious problems in defense but regularly scores at home. In our opinion, a productive match can be expected.

Our prediction is total over 2.5 goals for 1.74 on 1xBet.
