Newcastle are having a great second half of the season
Few people remember that Newcastle had problems at the start of the season, the club even struggled for survival. After the change of ownership, head coach and point-to-point reinforcements, things have changed dramatically. If you take the last 15 games, the Magpies are in third place in points, only Liverpool and Man City have more. The team is now also in good form, on a four-game winning streak and sitting in ninth place in the AFL. In the last round, they managed to beat Norwich 3-0 away. Five players will miss this meeting due to injuries.
Liverpool are waiting for a city defeat
The Merseysiders are doing well, but the end of the season will be crucial, as they could either win three more trophies apart from the League Cup, or come away with nothing. In the league, Liverpool are in a head-to-head battle with Man City, who are one point behind, and it is these clubs who will be playing for the title. In the Champions League, the team took a big step towards the final this week, beating Villarreal 2-0 at home, a very solid lead ahead of the return game. Klopp’s men are in good form, they won the derby against Everton 2-0 in the last round. Only Firmino was injured before this game.
Newcastle managed to score a quick away goal in the first round, but Liverpool scored twice before the break before celebrating a 3-1 final victory.
The visitors are predictably considered favourites, although Newcastle are capable of creating problems for the Merseysiders. Against the backdrop of the Champions League, Liverpool could be tired, both physically and emotionally. Klopp’s side will certainly not be able to win in economy mode. We think an exchange of goals is acceptable here.
