It has all the ingredients of being a relegation six-pointer at this stage, even though it’s still early in the season.

This could well prove out to be the turning point for both sides and both managers are well aware of the importance of the match itself.

West Bromwich Albion

The Baggies were on a horrendous run of four consecutive losses in Premier League and nobody believed they could potentially see an end to it on Saturday against Tottenham Spurs.

Nonetheless, the change on the bench did provide a positive shock the team was desperate for as Gary Megson managed to raise the spirits after the demolishing 0-4 home defeat to Chelsea.

Newcastle United

The hosts have made the change on the bench, and that’s exactly what the Magpies might do without a serious turnaround in form.

Rafael Benitez has done a decent job last time out in Championship, but his men will head into this on the back of four straight losses in the top tier.

This includes a demolishing 0-3 loss at home to Watford on Saturday. The lack of meticulousness at the back remains the biggest issue for the Spanish manager whose men have allowed as many as seven goals in last two matches with Manchester United and Watford.

West Bromwich Albion vs Newcastle United: Head to head

The Baggies lead the head to head tie by only two wins ahead of their 106th meeting with Newcastle United.

It is important to mention that none of the previous five H2H encounters between the two likes ended with three or more goals scored.

West Bromwich Albion vs Newcastle United: Prediction

We don’t expect any of the two managers taking the unnecessary risk in such a significant match.

If we add the lack of potential attacking weapons and the most recent H2H tradition, backing a low-scoring contest just has to be the way to go here.
