Newcastle vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: 8 April 2022, Friday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle upon Tyne).
Newcastle will be hoping to rebound from a tough loss at Tottenham Hotspur on Friday evening when they play host to Wolves in the first game of Matchday No 32 in Premier League.
The Magpies had been on a streak of six wins and a draw in seven Premier League matches before the current thread of three successive defeats.
Nevertheless, more than it brought a third straight loss for Newcastle, the last weekend’s match against Tottenham Hotspur offered their by far weakest performance under Eddie Howe.
Newcastle had a single shot on target during the 90 minutes of play at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and they left too much space for Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, and company to deliver at the opposite end.
Wolves will enter the match in much higher spirits. They have instantly rebounded from a surprising 2-3 home loss to Leeds United before the international break by beating Aston Villa 2-1 six days ago.
Right wing-back Jonny scored a goal in each of these two outings. He is very attacking and we would not be shocked to see the Spaniard finding the net in the third successive game.
For those who would like to try their luck with this longshot, Jonny Castro is sky-high 15.00 to score anytime on Friday at St. James’ Park.
Anyways, Wolves now have three wins in their last four matches and they will enter this tie in much higher spirits than their counterparts.
Newcastle vs Wolves Head-to-head
- Four of the previous five head to head encounters between these two rivals ended in a 1-1 scoreline.

- Nonetheless, Wolves only managed to beat Newcastle United 7 times in 39 attempts at St. James’ Park.
Newcastle vs Wolves Prediction
Wolves will come into the game in higher spirits but we must say they will still be without talisman Raul Jimenez who is serving a two-game ban after being sent off against Leeds.
We will take the draw at the 3.10 odds as the main betting pick knowing also that Wolves managed to beat Newcastle just 7 times in the last 39 meetings at St. James’ Park.
