Newcastle vs Bournemouth
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 10th November 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St. James Park (Newcastle).
Newcastle managed to end their winless run in 10 matches to record their first win of the season in their home game against Watford. Benitez men were merely the weaker side in this matchup but came out to surprise everyone with a 1-0 win. This win saw them climb one spot up the standings to redeem themselves from the relegation zone.
Even so, they are only out of the relegation zone with a goal difference. They will strive to scoop something from this matchup to widen the gap between them and the relegation zone. Therefore, we may see them come in this game with an attacking mode of play. They would not want to stop gangrening more points in their quest to climb higher in the standings.
On the other hand, the Cherries were more than unfortunate not to grab something from the Manchester United clash last weekend. They were unable to hold onto a draw to allow the Red Devils to score in the stoppage time. This matchup saw Bournemouth suffer their first defeat of the season.
Bournemouth is settling in the 6th position of the league standings with 20 points, just 23 points behind Arsenal. They may want to close the gap between them and the holders of the fifth position in their bid to climb to the top 5 teams of the EPL.

- The last h2h encounter in a February this year ended in a 2-2 draw.

Newcastle vs Bournemouth: Prediction
Newcastle managed to rejuvenate their home form with a win in their last matchup. On the other hand, Bournemouth’s away form in their last 2 matches has been at the peak. They may want to continue their winning streak to 3 consecutive matches but they will be up against a determined home side.
The most viable prediction for this matchup is an away draw no bet pick. This is because both teams may want to settle for a draw to add at least one point to their tally. It is evident that neither of the two sides will want to lose in this matchup. Recall that the two teams played out a 2-2 draw in their last meeting in the Premier League.
