Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley)
Burnley vs Newcastle United: Burnley has not been his usual self lately. With Newcastle in a much more positive way right now, it seems that the Clarets are on the verge of a tough ninety-minute set this weekend, despite the house’s advantage.
Burnley is in a surprising losing streak and admits defeat by quite alarming margins. In their last away game, Tottenham knocked them down with a great 5-0 score, before Manchester City rioted them at home with a 4-1 score.
The hosts have now won only twice in their last eight PL games. They currently occupy the 13th place in the ranking.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United sports a four-point mattress on the home team. The contingent visitor has been much better in their respective campaigns and is undefeated in their last three matches.
They have also had consecutive victories in their last two games, the most recent of which was a 2-1 victory over Southampton in St. James Park. It should also be mentioned that it was the guests who obtained the rights to bluff during their previous visit to this place.
Since Burnley has not tested success in one of his last two games here, Newcastle is the favorite to win in this one.
Either way, the visitors themselves were erratic along the way. And they have alternated wins and losses in their last four outings.
Therefore, the safest clearance would be a double chance. In addition, the Magpies have found the bottom of the net five times since their last three away matches.
On the other hand, three of the last four matches in Turf Moor have been notable with more than 2.5 goals on the charts.
Since your previous H2H meeting here also ended in a 2-1 score, do not count on the lack of goals when both teams meet this weekend.
