Morecambe vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview

Morecambe vs Newcastle United
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 23 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Globe Arena (Morecambe).

Back in 2013, Newcastle United paid a visit to Globe Arena in a similar EFL fixture. In that match, the Magpies returned home with a 0-2 clean sheet win against the host. Seven years later, Morecambe will once again host the opponents with the latter still as the favorites to win.

Morecambe will play after suffering a massive 0-5 defeat at home against Cambridge United in the League Two fixture last time out. Their last EFL clash was a narrow 1-0 home win against the likes of Oldham in the schedule.

Newcastle United secured a mid-spot in the Premier League table last season. Their start to the new PL season was also a good start with a 0-2 win on the road against West Ham. However, they will visit after a 0-3 loss at home against Brighton in the last PL clash.

  • Their previous encounter gave a 0-2 away win for Magpies.

Morecambe vs Newcastle United Prediction

Even though the away side is holding the favorites card in the game, we cannot take the home team for granted in the encounter. The Shrimps enjoy the home ground advantage, but playing in the third tier league will hold them back in the clash against a Premier League squad.

Since both teams are not that sharp in their attack, we can expect the match to end in a relatively low score by the end of the ninety minutes. The tip for under 3.5 goals will thus probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.

With their league superiority, the Magpies are likely to create more chances in the game. That’s why the tip for Newcastle United to win with a -1 handicap will probably serve the purpose to yield decent returns for the punters.
