Leicester vs Newcastle Prediction & Betting tips
Leicester City and Newcastle United are already playing on Friday-evening this week, as the two teams will meet at the King Power Stadium. Leicester City has been pretty seventh in the Premier League since last weekend, while they are still unsure of retention at Newcastle United.
Brendan Rodgers will perhaps surprise Leicester City in the final weeks of the 2018-2019 season. When the Northern Irishman was appointed to Leicester at the end of February, expectations were low – Leicester City was in a valley and Rodgers would never have enough time to restore it this season. The opposite is true: Rodgers performs above expectations with The Foxes and is even nicely seventh with Leicester. Last weekend Rodgers recorded the fourth consecutive victory with Leicester City.
That happened in the Huddersfield Town game. Leicester City beat the relegant 1-4 with two goals from Jamie Vardy and goals from Yoeri Tielemans and James Maddison. The latter player in particular seems untenable for Leicester City this summer. Maddison is only starting his first season in the Premier League, but is the absolute seasoning of Leicester City and is likely to make the move to a top club in the summer.
For Newcastle United, it’s a matter of time before The Magpies can focus on next season. Newcastle United is virtually safe in the Premier League and the team of Rafael Benítez does not play for anything else. However, the higher Newcastle United finishes in the Premier League, the more TV money the club receives. It saves around 2 million pounds per position and that should be a reason for Benítez to motivate his players a little more at the end of this season. Moreover, Newcastle United, which is fifteenth with 35 points, is still not completely safe. Although nobody expects Cardiff City, Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion to pass this Newcastle United in the coming month and a half.
At Newcastle United they could have played safely last weekend by booking a result against Crystal Palace. The Magpies won their last five league games at St. James’s Park, but last week, Crystal Palace was 0-1 too strong for Newcastle United on Saturday. Newcastle United had actually earned more against Palace, which received a penalty kick from Newcastle United nine minutes before the end. Should Newcastle United fail to play safely against Leicester City, there are still plenty of opportunities to do so in the coming weeks. Next weekend, the home game with Southampton is waiting, then Brighton-out is scheduled and in the final round, Newcastle United will visit Fulham.
