Newcastle vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting tips
Newcastle United is 14th in the Premier League, while the Crystal Palace of Roy Hodgson is 13th in the highest English league. These two teams meet each other at St. James’ Park in the weekend.
As stated, Newcastle United is in the Premier League fourteenth. For Newcastle United standards, that is a great classification: The Magpies were given the objective that they must maintain themselves and the Rafael Benítez team will succeed. Newcastle United has built up an eight point lead over the teams under the relegation line and will never again lose that lead in the last six games of the season. All in all, Benítez – with not too good material – did not even perform so badly.
The last five league matches that Newcastle United played at St. James’ Park were won by The Magpies. Cardiff City, Manchester City, Huddersfield Town, Burnley and Everton all lost in the city of the Geordies in the last two months. Newcastle United is less impressive in away matches; the last eight Premier League duels outside the home did not result in any victory. Also not last weekend when Newcastle United in London lost 2-0 to Arsenal. At Newcastle United they do not like to play against The Gunners anyway – Newcastle United has already lost 28 times in the Premier League of Arsenal and none of the clubs lost The Magpies more often.
Crystal Palace is therefore one place above Newcastle United. The Eagles also have one point more than The Magpies and can therefore also enjoy the lots of money going on in the Premier League next season. Just like what goes for Benítez, the same goes for Palace coach Hodgson: the oldest Premier League manager of the moment simply performs excellently with Crystal Palace. He is not going to relegate with The Eagles and therefore he has met expectations. That the game of Crystal Palace is often not to peek at, is a side issue for many fans of the London club.
Where Newcastle United had no competition obligations in the Premier League in recent days, Crystal Palace simply had to go to the bank. Crystal Palace was part of the opening of the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Wednesday evening. Unfortunately for Crystal Palace, it was not possible to disrupt the Spurs party, as The Eagles lost 2-0 to their fellow townman. It was the eighth time in a row for Crystal Palace that The Eagles lost in the Premier League of Tottenham Hotspur. In the beginning of 2019, Crystal Palace, however, cleverly eliminated the Spurs in the FA Cup tournament: 2-0. The semi-finals of the FA Cup are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday evenings, but Palace was eliminated by Watford (2-1) in the previous round and therefore can play in the Premier League this weekend.
