Leeds vs Newcastle Predictions
Leeds United Face Tough Test Against Newcastle in Premier League Clash
– The Magpies have won four of their last five top-flight road trips.
– Newcastle have conceded only 29 goals in 34 outings this season, boasting the best defensive record in the top-flight.
Leeds United, currently in the Premier League relegation zone, are set to face Newcastle United at Elland Road this Saturday. With only four games left, Leeds’ management has brought in survival specialist Sam Allardyce as manager. However, the pressure is on as they face a formidable Newcastle side led by Eddie Howe.
Newcastle’s Strong Performance
Newcastle United have an impressive record, having won four of their last five top-flight road trips. Currently in third place, the Magpies are looking to solidify their position and fend off a resurgent Liverpool. With a strong defensive record, Newcastle have conceded only 29 goals in 34 outings this season.
Leeds United’s Struggles and Allardyce’s Impact
Sam Allardyce’s arrival has brought some improvement to Leeds, evident in their 2-1 loss to Manchester City. However, with only one point from their last six league matches, the team remains two points away from safety. Injuries and defensive vulnerabilities have contributed to Leeds having the worst defensive record in the Premier League, with 69 goals conceded in 35 outings.
Newcastle’s Attacking Power
Despite some defensive issues of their own, Newcastle’s attacking prowess is undeniable. The partnership between Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak has resulted in 25 goals this season. Newcastle’s superior attacking quality is expected to exploit Leeds’ fragile defense and contribute to the Magpies’ success in this match.
Expect Magpies To Dominate From The Outset
Considering Newcastle’s average of 7.1 corners per game compared to Leeds’ 5.1, and taking into account both teams’ recent form, our main prediction is that Newcastle will win both halves and have the most corners in each half. This outcome seems likely given Newcastle’s attacking talent and Leeds’ defensive shortcomings and it is available at a very generous price of 8/1 with William Hill.
Entertaining Affair On The Cards
Given the attacking potential of both sides and the likelihood of goals being scored, our correct score prediction is a 3-1 victory for Newcastle.
