Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
England Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: St. James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Newcastle and Wolves will drop curtain on an exciting Premier League day as they are set to battle it out on Saturday evening at St. James’ Park.
Looking at the standings, the match has a much greater significance for the hosts who might find themselves in a very tough position in case of a failure here. Fulham grew in form and confidence lately, narrowing the gap behind Newcastle down to just three points.
The Magpies could be dropped into the relegation area even after this round with a defeat here against the Wolves.
Wolverhampton should enter the game in much higher spirits. They completely moved away from the potential relegation scrap by taking 10 out of 12 points in the last four rounds.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s team finally seem to have found the right rhythm for the first time since they lost Raul Jimenez through a severe head injury.
Newcastle vs Wolves Head-to-head
- The head to head stats is all square at 28 wins apiece ahead of the teams’ 76th meeting.
- Interestingly, each of the last three H2H encounters ended in the same 1-1 scoreline.
- Wolves have only won 7 of 38 away matches against the Magpies.
Newcastle vs Wolves Prediction
Wolverhampton have tightened things up defensively of late. They conceded only two goals in the last four league outings, despite playing the likes of Arsenal, Leicester, Southampton, and Leeds in the process.
Pedro Neto looked very good in the last couple of weeks and we would not be surprised to see him causing problems to Newcastle’s back line on Saturday.
Although the hosts desperately need the victory here, we can hardly see them snatching one against such an in-form opposition. Without top scorer Callum Wilson in the line-up (out through injury), we can’t see them scoring on Saturday.
Wolves to win to nil is the way to go at the exciting 3.40 odds. Pedro Neto to score anytime is paid at the 3.00 odds.
