Newcastle vs Burnley (By: Saconex)
England Premier League
Newcastle (15) vs Burnley (14)
Newcastle are coming from winning comfortably 2-0 vs bottom team Huddersfield (20), so as it stands there is 4 points down to Southampton (18) and the relegation zone. Total record for the hosts is 7-7-13 with 24-34 in goal difference. New player Almiron started the last match and looked good and with 3-1-2 from last 6 matches Newcastle should go for winning tonight as well. The hosts will miss Clark here.
Burnley are standing with a total record of 8-6-13 and 31-48 in goal difference. They are in great shape though, with 5-3-0 from last 8 league matches. The guests are coming from winning 2-1 vs Spurs (3), and they also won 1-3 away vs Brighton (16) before that. Still missing Lennon & Defour.
• Newcastle won the reverse fixture by 1-2 back in November
• 4 of last 5 Burnley away matches ended with minimum 3 goals total
Burnley are often participating in high scoring matches (2.93 average total goals per match), but Newcastle are in fact often participating in low score matches (2.15 average total goals per match). But still, I think chances are good for us to see goals tonight. Both teams probably feels they should be capable of winning this, and both teams has good in form attacking players ready up front. I think this can be entertaining with goals both ways. Overall I like the value in this bet and I will give it a try.
