They are now 15th in the table after a nine-point lead over Watford and are almost certain to keep their place in the top flight for next season. 33 goals scored and 54 conceded. After a productive January transfer window, with Atletico defender Kieran Trippier, Burnley forward Chris Wood and French Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes joining the squad, the Magpies scored 6 wins and 2 draws in 8 games, but the pace slowed in March.
Three defeats in the last three rounds. Last weekend, the home side were thrashed by Tottenham in London 5-1. The team have probably lost their motivation for the rest of the championship and are waiting for the start of next season. Due to injuries, right-back Kieran Trippier, midfielders Jamal Lewis and Isaac Hayden and forward Callum Wilson are unavailable for the game.
Wolves sit seventh in the APL standings with 49 points from 31 rounds played. Now just two points adrift of Eurocup side West Ham United, Bruno Laghe’s side have plenty of motivation to keep them going. They have scored 33 goals and conceded 27. They are in good form at the moment – only 3 wins in the last 4 games. Last weekend, the Pitmen took on the resilient Aston Villa 2-1 on home soil. Top scorer is Mexican forward Raul Jimenez (6 goals).
Traore left in the winter transfer window to join Barcelona, Chiquinho was signed to replace him at Estoril. Only holding midfielder Ruben Neves is sidelined after getting an injury during a training session for the Portugal national team.
The teams have already met each other in the first round of the current national championship, and then the Wolves took a 2-1 lead at Molinho. Moreover, the last time the home side have been winless in head-to-head matches for eight games.
Newcastle vs Wolverhampton
The Magpies, after a mind-blowing winter stretch, broke away from the relegation zone and slowed down, suffering 3 defeats in a row. The team has probably lost a bit of motivation for the rest of the season and will now play out the championship at their own pace. The visitors, on the other hand, are motivated to break into the Eurocup zone, and to do that they have to win by all means, the good thing is that all the leaders are fit. Betting on Wolverhampton not to win looks safe.
