Newcastle vs Crystal Palace Match Preview
Newcastle United are looking to avoid the drop into the Championship this season. The club have continued to progress under the guidance of former Champions League winning manager Rafael Benitez and even splashed the cash on their record transfer signing in Paraguayan international Miguel Almiron in January, but they are still not fully safe from the drop and currently occupy a seven point gap over 18th placed Cardiff.
With Huddersfield and Fulham’s relegations already confirmed though the Magpies are in a strong position and even more so following some decent performances in front of their own fans in recent weeks. The Tynesiders have won their last four Premier League games at St James’ Park, including one versus league leaders Manchester City and that’s why they’re 7/5 favourites for the win here with PaddyPower.
Crystal Palace are not yet fully clear of the relegation battle themselves. As things stand, the Eagles sit just one place and one point above their Saturday afternoon opponents in the tables and this could be a tough fixture for them just days after their defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the opening game at the new London ground. Encouragingly though, their form on the road has been strong in the second half of the season.
Roy Hodgson’s men have won four of their last seven away games in the Premier League and have only been beaten by Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, two of the top three teams in the table in that run. Unfortunately for Hodgson however, the South Londoners record against the Magpies in recent years has been dreadful as they’ve won just one of the last 16 meetings between the two sides. Can they end that run with a win here at 2/1 with Bet365.
We’re backing goals in this game. The reverse fixture at Selhurst Park may have finished goalless but since then the Magpies have looked far better in front of goal, with Salomon Rondon profiting from the creativity of Almiron. Newcastle have scored at least twice in each of their last four home games whilst Palace have only failed to score in one of their last 13 Premier League fixtures. Both teams to score is available at 19/20 with Bet365.
Salomon Rondon has been one of the most in-form attackers in the Premier League in recent weeks, particularly in front of the home support at St James’ Park. The Venezuelan has found the net three times in his last four games at St James’ Park and he also scored for his country during the international break. With confidence high we’re backing the West Brom loanee for another in this game at 11/5 with Bet365.
