Newport vs Newcastle Predictions & Match Preview

Newport County vs Newcastle United
English Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Rodney Parade, Newport

Sixteen teams remain in this year’s edition of English Carabao Cup. Newport County are surely one of the biggest surprise packages, but can they cause another upset?

This time they are going against Premier League side Newcastle United at home turf, but the odds are heavily favouring the visiting squad.

The Magpies might shuffle the starting XI for the clash at Rodney Parade, but overall their confidence is quite solid after a decent start to the new season. Newcastle are currently priced at 1.44 to win this match.

Newport County vs Newcastle Prediction

To reach this phase Newport County had to play three games. It started with a surprising 2-0 home win against Swansea City, followed by another home victory against Cambridge United. Finally, the third round paired this Welsh side against Watford FC, and once again they emerged victorious 3-1 FT.

When it comes to their League Two campaign, things are looking good as well. The team collected seven out of possible nine points from the opening three matches, currently being on a run of four straight wins across competitions. They defeated Bolton Wanderers on the road 2-0 during the last weekend. Attacking duo Tristan Abrahams and Ryan Tailor is doing a great job so far, bagging total of 4 goals in L2.

Newcastle’s confidence is surely high after demolishing Morecambe in this competition last week 7-0 FT, followed with a dramatic EPL match against Tottenham Hotspur in London last Saturday. Magpies got away with a point thanks to a penalty shot in 95th minute.

We are expecting a decent resistance from the hosts here, especially if visitors use mixed lineup. Home win in +1.5 Asian Handicap at 1.70 seems like a good bargain.
