Match: Rochdale vs Newcastle United
League: English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 4 January 2020
Kick-off at 12:31 UK / 13:31 CET
Venue: Spotland Stadium (Rochdale).
Rochdale vs Newcastle: Rochdale has not yet started running in League One. Since the home advantage has not had its charm in recent times, count on Newcastle to pass in front of the hosts next Saturday.
Rochdale beat Boston United in the previous round by a narrow 2-1 score. Although they took the lead at the beginning of this clash, their counterparts had a good start after the restart and found the equalizer five minutes after the start of the second half.
However, the hosts received a penalty soon after, Aaron Morley made no mistake during the conversion. Unfortunately, the Ligue 1 team has not won a victory since their victory over Boston United and is currently in a three-game losing streak.
It should also be mentioned that Rochdale has not done well recently in front of the local crowd. They have only reached the top once in their last six games here. That too, in all competitions.
On the other hand, Newcastle is in a disappointing way. Visitors currently live outside the top ten in the Premier League and have only won one of their last three jogging games.
Anyway, it goes without saying that magpies exercise their profession in, without a doubt, one of the most difficult leagues in all of Europe. Their opponents, on the other hand, are struggling to do things for them on the third level.
Given the difference in quality between the two parties, Rochdale has little or no chance of causing disorders this weekend.
In addition, Newcastle has been quite tame in the last third of the season, especially on the road. The guests have not been able to put their names on the game sheet four times. Miserably, they have only scored nine goals in their last ten starts.
In addition, the first line of Rochdale has been just as sad and has found the bottom of the net only three times in its last five games here.
As such, have hard-to-reach goals in this one.
