Newcastle is all set to host Leicester City this weekend, as matchweek 33 of the English Premier League 2021-22 season draws to a close.
Newcastle United looks like a completely different outfit compared to what it was at the start of the season. After scoring its first win in the 15th game of the season, the club has won 7 of its last 11 games, and Eddie Howe has played a huge part in this turnaround. As a result of its exceptional performances in the recent months, Newcastle has managed to get itself out of the bottom 3 and is currently sitting in the 15th spot on the points table.
With 34 points, it is now 10 points above the relegation zone and is almost certain to feature in the top flight for the next season. Newcastle managed to halt its 3-game losing streak by beating the Wolverhampton Wanderers by a 1-0 margin. Playing a second consecutive game at home, Newcastle has a great opportunity to jump to the 12th place by winning this game.
Leicester City has been one of the most inconsistent teams of this season. However, the club has improved its performance in the recent weeks and has lost just 1 of its last 6 games. Collecting a total of 13 points from a maximum possible of 18, Leicester is now in 9th place on the points table. With 9 games still to go before the end of the season, Leicester fans will be hoping that the team covers an 11-point deficit and move into the top 6 for a European spot.
The team will be traveling to Tyneside on the back of a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace and will be starting this game as the favorite on most football betting sites.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Newcastle United F. C. vs Leicester City F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at St. James’ Park Stadium, Newcastle upon Tyne, on 17th April 2022.
With both the teams doing well in the recent weeks, this promises to be a closely fought encounter. The reverse fixture was won 4-0 by the Foxes, but Newcastle looks like a completely different team now, and Leicester will have to struggle to score goals. It’s troubles will be compounded by the fact that Danny Ward, Jamie Vardy, and Wilfred Ndidi are likely to miss out on this game due to injuries.
Newcastle is likely to skip Kieran Trippier, and Joe Willock Callum Wilson, all of whom are nursing injuries.
We predict that the rejuvenated home team has the strength and confidence to avenge the loss it faced earlier this season.
Bet on a Newcastle win.
Only 2 of the last 5 head to head Premier League encounters have seen both teams score. Newcastle has been pretty stingy in conceding goals in its recent games. The club has conceded just 4 goals in its last 6 games and kept 2 clean sheets. We, therefore, predict that Leicester might find it difficult to breach Newcastle’s defenses
Each of the last 5 head to head games across competitions has seen more than 2.5 goals being scored. 2 of Leicester’s last 3 Premier League games have seen 3 or more goals being scored. It is therefore recommended to bet on a high-scoring game.
