Newcastle United vs Southampton Prediction

Newcastle United returned to winning ways in their mid-week clash with Sheffield United after the hosts slotted two unanswered goals past them on the road. The home side are now unbeaten in their last two games on the trot. They have also admitted defeat just once in their past six fixtures.

With nineteen points in the bag, the Magpies are now sitting eleventh in the cluster, one point short of breaking into the top ten.

Meanwhile, Southampton have not been at the losing end in any of their previous three clashes, the most recent of which saw them edge past Norwich at St. Mary’s Stadium with a 2-1 scoreline. Be that as it may, it needs saying that two out of those three fixtures were on home soil for the Saints.

On the road, the visitors have been alternating between draws and defeats in their last four matchups. They have also garnered just two points from a possible twelve in the process.

In sharp contrast, Newcastle United have not been at the losing end here since their opening game defeat at the hands of Arsenal.  Taking into account that they have not made any mistake in securing the bragging rights in any of their last two meetings with this foe here either, Newcastle United are the front runners to come out on top this weekend.

Be that as it may, the hosts have shared the spoils in four of their previous six games here. Considering that two of their last five h2h encounters at this stadium have also ended as a tie, a double chance would be the safest way to go in this one.

Furthermore, the Magpies have not kept a clean sheet in their past three clashes at home. On the other hand, eight of the seventeen goals for Southampton so far have come from their outings.

Taking into account that all of their last four h2h fixtures here have also been high scoring affairs, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally together come Sunday.
