Newcastle vs Arsenal Prediction & Betting tips
St. James’ Park forms the setting for the meeting between Newcastle United and Arsenal on Sunday afternoon. At Newcastle United they recently won at St. James’ Park with 1-0 from Manchester United and the formation of Rafael Benítez hopes for an equivalent result when Arsenal comes to visit.
Last season, Newcastle United became champion in the Championship. A club like Newcastle United obviously does not belong at the second English level, but The Magpies also knew that it would be very difficult to maintain this season in the Premier League. Nevertheless, Newcastle United will succeed in protecting themselves from relegation, because Rafael Benítez’s team has already caught so many points that it would have to go crazy if Newcastle United were to be in danger. The Magpies have ten points ahead of the relegation zone and also played a match less compared to a lot of competitors so at Newcastle United they can start ordering the champagne.
With three victories from the last three matches, Newcastle United has made great strides in the last few weeks to preserve their lives. With Southampton (3-0) and Huddersfield Town (1-0), two competitors were recently defeated at their own St. James’ Park and last weekend Newcastle United also managed to win 1-2 at Leicester City . For The Magpies there are still four difficult matches in the Premier League where no one expects that Newcastle United will take the points in those games, but with West Bromwich Albion-home and Watford-out there are also two matches on the program that Newcastle United can win. In the next round of play, for Newcastle United at Goodison Park, the away match against Everton is on the program and if The Magpies win then they even come in line with Everton and Newcastle United could end the season in the left row.
Arsène Wenger has announced this week that at Arsenal, the Europa League is more important than the Premier League. Europa League-win means Champions League-qualification for The Gunners and Arsenal has not been able to qualify for the Champions League since the Premier League. For Arsenal it is even difficult to qualify for the Europa League via the Premier League and so all Arsenal supporters fully support the opinion of Wenger, which has been different in recent months.
The Gunners played in the Europa League against CSKA Moscow on Thursday-evening. In London Arsenal already won 4-1 last week and the game in the VEB Arena was actually a formality. After six victories in a row, Arsenal did not manage to win the Muscovites on Thursday. In fact, Arsenal only managed to come back from a 2-0 deficit in the last fifteen minutes. Because of the 2-2 draw, Arsenal did qualify for the semi-final of the Europa League and in this, fellow-captain Atlético Madrid will be the opponent. The question is how seriously Wenger will take the away match against Newcastle United this week, although for Arsenal it might be good to book some more victories in matches outside of their own stadium. The Gunners knew in the Premier League only three away games to win this season and even a club like Newcastle United knew this season to catch more three-pointers outdoors.
