Newcastle vs Brentford
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 8 October 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park.
Both Newcastle and Brentford are struggling to find form in the English top flight, and they are stuck in the mid-table as of now. Their respective defenses have also failed to rise to the occasion, and with either team desperate to secure a win, chances are high for the encounter to turn into a goal-fest.
Newcastle are placed seventh in the table, and it is quite concerning that they registered just two wins till now. Do also note that they registered a single win in the past five match-days.
Going on, their sole two wins so far in the current edition of the PL came against Fulham, and Nottingham – both of whom are recent additions to the top flight.
Currently Newcastle are on a long stretch of winless performances at home, and they are also struggling to keep clean sheets.
Meanwhile, Brentford are placed 10th in a table of 20, and they too won just two times in total in the whole competition. Note that they were able to secure just a single win in the past five fixtures in the PL.
Furthermore, they have a 100% winless record on the road, and their only clean sheet in such games came against the recently-promoted Bournemouth.
In addition, goals also came in plenty whenever these two teams locked horns in the past.
By the looks of things, expect a high-scoring affair this Saturday between the two squads.
