Burnley vs Newcastle
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 26 November 2018
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley.
Two teams from the bottom tier of the Premier League go against each other at the Turf Moor this Monday as the 13th round of the EPL comes to a close.
Burnley played out an away draw against Leicester last week, and the match remained goalless for the whole of ninety minutes. The coach tried three quickfire substitutions to make an influence in the gameplay, but goals remained elusive. The moral victory belonged to Burnley considering their lower standing in the league, and their away status for the game.
Newcastle has been impressing in their recent matches, recording tough wins against teams from the top tier. Last weekend they took full advantage of playing in front of their home crowd and saw out the match with a 2-1 scoreline against Bournemouth, the sixth-placed side in the league.

Burnley vs Newcastle Prediction
Both teams have recorded nine points so far in their league season. While Burnley conceded 25 goals from their 12 matches, Newcastle restricted theirs to just 15.
The visitors come on top as the slight favorites for this match. They have recently performed well against top tier teams. Just last week they despatched Bournemouth with a loss. They almost ended Jose Mourinho’s career at the Old Trafford when Manchester United hosted Newcastle some weeks back.
Burnley has disappointed their fans at home and on the road similarly. Their last match at home ended in an embarrassing scoreline of 0-4 against Chelsea.
As these teams with almost equal capabilities at the front, take on each other, the comparatively better backline of Newcastle will reign supreme and will likely decide the outcome of the match.
Only one of the teams will get on the scoresheet, most probably Newcastle. Their newfound form is going to create headaches for the home defense and fans as well.
