Burnley vs Newcastle Prediction
Burnley are on a shocking losing streak and have been admitting defeat by quite some alarming margins. Their last clash on the road, saw Tottenham take them down with a whopping 5-0 scorecard, prior to which Manchester City ran riot over them at home with a 4-1 scoreline.
The hosts have now picked up the win just twice in their past eight PL clashes, are currently sitting thirteenth on the ladder as well.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United are sporting a four-point cushion over the home side. The visiting contingent have been faring a lot better in their respective campaign and are unbeaten in their past three matchups.
They have also been recording back to back wins in their last two fixtures, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win over Southampton at St. James Park. It is also worth mentioning that it was the guests who secured the bragging rights in their previous visit to this venue.
Taking into account that Burnley have not tasted success in any of their last two games here either, Newcastle are the front runners to come away with the win in this one.
Be that as it may, the visitors themselves have been erratic on the road. And have been alternating between wins and defeats in their last four outings.
Hence, the safest punt would be opting for a double chance. Furthermore, the Magpies have found the back of the net five times from their last three clashes away from home.
On the other hand, three out of the past four clashes at Turf Moor have been high scoring affairs with over 2.5 goals on the charts.
Considering that their previous h2h meeting here also ended in a 2-1 scoreline, count on no dearth of goals when the two teams square up against each other this weekend.
