Newcastle United vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3 October 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: St. James Park.
The Magpies have been far better than they were in the final phase of the last season. They made good use of the pre-season, and took part in several friendlies – and are now reaping its benefits. They have so far lost a single match-up in 2019-20 in all competitions.
However, the Clarets have a story almost exactly the opposite. They probably took their season-break lightly, and could be bothered just for a single friendly fixture against Preston during the period.
And now, they are on a 100% losing record in the league, and have placed themselves in the bottom tier of the table. On top of that, they are also out of the Carabao Cup.
Going on, Steve Bruce’s men also do have a good h2h record at this stadium over this opponent.
For the reasons, expect a good performance from Newcastle this weekend.
Newcastle vs Burnley: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Sean Dyche’s men have scored a total of one goal from the previous three fixtures.
- The latest encounter had ended in a goalless draw, which took place in February of this year.
- At this venue, the hosts have a 100% unbeaten record in the 21st century.
- Only once have the home team failed to score goals at this ground since 2000.
Newcastle vs Burnley: Prediction
The Magpies secured a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham. In a thrilling encounter, the guests had trailed 1-0 almost all through the game, before they slotted in the equalizer in the 90+7th minute.
In the meantime, the Clarets lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Southampton.
They also do have a single win this whole season in all competitions, and that had come against a team from the lower division. They had also lost three of their preceding four games, and had failed to score in their latest two fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won four of their previous six overall match-ups, and they had scored a total of ten goals from their past three games alone.
Going on, they also do have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes at this venue over the past two decades, and have kept clean sheets in the last two such encounters here.
Taking into account these observations, expect a win from Newcastle this Saturday.
