Hull City vs Newcastle United
English Football League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 29th November, 2016
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: KC Stadium, Hull.
The English Football League Cup returns with an intriguing clash as Hull City takes on Newcastle United at the KC Stadium on Tuesday evening, 29th November 2016.
Hull City are largely at struggle in the Premier League this season, a majority of which owe to a persistent injury crisis. They occupy the last spot in relegation zone after managing just 1 league win from 11 matches since September. When it comes to the League Cup competition, they are a totally different team. They had won all their three matches in previous rounds convincingly. And that too away from home with Exeter, Stoke and Bristol being the scalps.
Newcastle United are sitting pretty at the top of the Championship after 18 matchdays. They suffered their first defeat after an 11 match unbeaten run in all competitions this weekend by a 1-0 margin against Blackburn. They are a very dominant side these days, tidy at the back and lethal going forward. All of their three Cup fixtures so far were at home and they had won them without conceding. They defeated Preston 6-0 in the round of 16 to register their biggest home win in all competitions this season.
Hull City vs Newcastle United: Head-to-head stats
Newcastle United are unbeaten in the last three matches against Hull City, with 2 wins and a draw. Both wins have come at the KC Stadium by big margins – 3-0 on 2015/16 and 4-1 on 2014/15.
The home team haven’t won in the last eight matches between Hull and Newcastle with precisely 5 matches during the period ending in a win for the away side.
The last four matches between them have seen over 2.5 goals, with 4 of the last 5 seeing both teams scoring.
Hull City vs Newcastle United: Prediction
We have seen in the previous fixtures between these two favours the away side. This can be confirmed as Hull City are a team in terrible run of form, while Newcastle United are a team in excellent form. Moreover, the number of injuries will dent the hosts to have chance in mounting a serious challenge.
While looking at the goal markets, Newcastle United have scored at least twice in 7 of their last 8 matches. While Hull have struggled to find the back of the net on a consistent basis. So an alternate pick for this fixture is to back Newcastle to score at least twice.
Predicted Full-Time Score is a 2-0 win for Newcastle United at 12.00 (11/1).
