Newcastle vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle).
Liverpool enjoyed a fabulous season across competitions, but they may still likely end it without any trophy. The Reds are one point shy of leaders Manchester City at the top of the Premier League standings with just two games left to play. They also fell 3-0 away at Barcelona on Wednesday evening in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final at Camp Nou.
Jurgen Klopp won’t have the luxury of resting his key players for Saturday’s domestic league tie against in-form Newcastle United as the Reds are still hoping defending champion’s Man City would drop points in two remaining outings.
Speaking of form, Liverpool won seven on the spin in the Premier League and they do come into this as clean favourites regardless of a very complicated schedule.
Newcastle vs Liverpool: Head-to-head
The Reds bagged six goals without any response in last two meetings with Newcastle United.
However, the Magpies have a positive head to head record in matches at St. James’ Park where they lead the tie by nine wins coming into 76th encounter with Liverpool.
None of last nine head to head games between these two sides saw away teams snatching the spoils.
Newcastle vs Liverpool: Prediction
Rafael Benitez’s men will enter this clash without any kind of pressure and it could be very helpful for them against such rivals. Even though the Reds are in a must-win situation here, it is really hard to see the value in backing the away win at the odds of 1.30 knowing none of past nine head to head encounters ended with such scenario.
On top of this, the Magpies won two and drew one of last three league outings shipping just one goal in the process. Their defensive line should do well against Liverpool’s tired attackers and we will back the hosts not to lose by two or more goals difference as the main betting option at the odds of 1.75.
