Newcastle vs Arsenal Prediction & Betting tips
After Chelsea, Arsenal is hosting another traditional London club on 15/09/2018 in Newcastle. Kick-off is at 16:00 at St James Park.
Both teams got off to a bad start to the season. But compared to the “Magpies”, the “Gunners” were recently able to initiate a small turnaround by winning the last two games in a row.
Newcastle is currently showing that the second season after a climb is usually the tougher one. The team of Rafael Benitez is currently only on rank 18 of the table. Three bankruptcies and a draw have been retracted so far. The point win came against Cardiff City (currently # 16).
It should be noted, however, that the first games were played against well-known clubs such as Tottenham Hotspurs, Manchester City and Chelsea FC.
The factor home advantage can not be troubled too much in this game. Two out of three goals were scored at St James Park, but the score is zero home points. In the previous direct comparisons, there was little to catch Newcastle. Of the last six games, the “Magpies” could only win one. All other five games went to the Gunners. Three of the past four direct duels ended with less than three goals. With the exception of defenders Lejune and Javier Manquillo, all men in the squad are available to Benitez.
Whether the good home statistics of last season can be rebuilt, remains currently rather uncertain. Eight of 19 games Newcastle won and thus finished ninth in the home table. The odds are, as mentioned earlier, the rather skeptical.
Arsenal took sixth place last season. At home they were a power, while outbound almost nothing went. Arsenal finished second in the home table in 2017/2018 with a goal balance of 54:20. Away, they only got 16 points from 19 games. With a gate balance of 20:31, they only finished in 11th place.
With new coach Unai Emery should turn in the new season, everything for the better. But the entry into the new season was not exactly according to plan. Arsenal lost 2-0 to Manchester City and 2-3 to Chelsea FC. But a small upward trend can be seen. Arsenal won 3-1 against West Ham United and 3-2 against Cardiff.
Striking and therefore very interesting for the tip: in three of the four games played so far fell more than two goals. The same applies to the games of Newcastle. That this was often not the case in the direct comparison between Newcastle and Arsenal, we just ignore, as now completely different teams meet with new coaches.
