On 25 August, Newcastle United and Burnley will face off in the English League Cup second round match. Will the Magpies win a home victory over the Burgundy? We read the answer in this forecast.
Newcastle United cannot boast of high-profile successes in the League Cup, the team has never won a trophy. The Magpies have not been impressive with their results in recent years; the team is regularly fighting to maintain its registration in the Premier League. Last season, Steve Bruce’s wards finished in the championship only at the 12th step.
In the current Premier League draw, the “black-and-white” started very badly, the team lost both matches. Last weekend, Newcastle was weaker than Aston Villa (0: 2).
To be fair, we note that Steve Bruce’s infirmary is overcrowded. Jonjo Shelvey, Paul Dummett, Martin Dubravka, Karl Darlow and Elliot Anderson will not be able to help the team in the cup.
“Burnley” does not claim a residence permit in the Premier League in any way, regularly moving between divisions. So last season, Sean Ditch’s wards failed to shoot, finishing only 17th in the Premier League.
The current Premier League season also did not work out for Burnley, the team lost two matches, playing poorly in attack and defense. In the second round, the “burgundy” away could not oppose anything to the pressure of “Liverpool” (0: 2).
The guests had a minimum of problems with the composition of the guests before the cup meeting, only two veterans Kevin Long and Dale Stevens were injured.
Both teams cannot boast of a stable game and a positive result at the start of the season. A face-to-face meeting is a great opportunity for teams to return to the winning path, breaking a series of failures.
Within the framework of the cup confrontation, the “forty” have a little more chances of success, they will fight on their own territory. The houses and the walls help, plus the burgundy ones are unsuccessful on the road, which only increases the hosts’ chances of continuing to fight in the tournament.
In the game of two outsiders in the Premier League, we will give preference to the hosts. The forecast is a victory for Newcastle . In 1xbet promo code such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.92.
Both teams are unsuccessful on the defensive at the start of the season. It is logical to assume that in a face-to-face meeting they will make mistakes in defense. Therefore, in the cup match, the clubs will surely exchange a couple of balls.
We make a bet that the teams will play effectively. The total of the match is over 4 goals . In the bookmaker’s line, this option received a coefficient of 7.00.
