Huddersfield Town vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Huddersfield lost three matches in a row after a 1-0 defeat against Arsenal last weekend. David Wagner’s men were quite impressive in this fixture and they were able to hold off Arsenal for much of the encounter before they conceded to a late Lucas Torreira goal. Newcastle are now winless in three matches after falling to a 2-1 home defeat against Wolves in their latest match. Diogo Jota was able to open the scoring for Wolves after 17 minutes. However, it took just five minutes for Ayoze Pérez to cancel out this goal. Deandre Yedlin’s sending off in the 57th minute had a decisive impact in the match and Wolves’ made this numerical advantage pay with an injury time goal from Matt Doherty.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Huddersfield will be reasonably pleased with the displays they have come up with in the last few weeks. Even though the club has lost three consecutive matches, David Wagner’s men have stuck to their plan and been excellent as far as performances are concerned. Newcastle have been able to get some impressive results of late and they have the potential to get a draw out of this match.

The primary factor behind Huddersfield’s position in the relegation dogfight is a lack of offensive strength with the team only managing 10 goals in the league so far. Newcastle are not far away from this record after only scoring 13 goals. A low scoring game – with under 2.5 goals – is to be expected when these two teams go up against each other.

Huddersfield Town Preview

A brief string of victories lifted Huddersfield to the position of escaping from the bottom three, but the team has not lost three consecutive matches to head back into the bottom three places – albeit by a huge margin. The crucial difference between Huddersfield’s inability to take three points has been an attack, which has been one of the poorest this season. Even after picking up recent victories over Fulham and Wolves, Huddersfield remain as the worst scoring team in the division with only 10 goals in 16 matches.

Huddersfield Town Team News

Jonathan Hogg (groin), Aaron Mooy (ligament), Tom Smith (hamstring), Terence Kongolo (knee), and Abdelhamid Sabiri (broken collarbone) are unavailable for Huddersfield. Steve Mounie is still serving his suspension and he will be unavailable for this match.

Newcastle United Preview

Rafa Benitez has done a commendable job with Newcastle United but the arrival of new entrants into the fight to avoid relegation makes space extremely small for the North-East club. Newcastle still lack a strong offensive display and the tactical nous of Benitez can be a crucial factor in getting the club out of the relegation trouble. Even though Newcastle have been able to move away from the bottom three, they are only four points away from being sucked back into it.

Newcastle United Team News

Federico Fernandez (calf), Jonjo Shelvey (thigh), and Karl Darlow (elbow) are unavailable for Newcastle. DeAndre Yedlin is suspended for the match after his direct red card against Huddersfield.
