Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle).
Newcastle United is on one of their worst runs in the PL this season. The host has lost their last five matches in a row and has been winless for the past nine league clashes in the schedule.
They will host after suffering a 1-2 loss at home to the likes of Leeds in the previous PL encounter. The Magpies are still just four points behind the traveling side on the table as it stands this term.
Crystal Palace found themselves in a double loss after three unbeaten games in their schedule. The 2-3 loss at home against West Ham in the last league clash was their 9th loss in 20 attempts until now.
With such a poor form in the campaign, the visitor will not pose a huge threat to the home team. Still, the Eagles might look for a window to catch the host off guard.

Newcastle United is on a losing streak in the campaign for the past five fixtures in their schedule. Meanwhile, the Eagles are on a double loss in their league schedule.
With both teams in a similar form in the campaign, we can expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be a suitable option for the goals area in the encounter.
Having a four-point lead on the table will give a slight edge for the visitor. Besides, the host is in poor form at their strongest suit itself. Hence, the double chance favoring Crystal Palace will probably be the best bet for the punters.
