Newcastle United vs Bristol City Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game will have implications at both ends of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

It is a level record from the last seven meetings between the pair with both teams having recorded one win each and the other gives ending in a draw. Newcastle came out on top in the last encounter on August 20th.  A Dwight Gayle goal in the 19th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.

The Magpies moved back to the top of the Championship table on Monday night after beating Aston Villa. Yoan Gouffran put them ahead and a Henri Lansbury strike made it 2-0 and that was the end of the scoring.

 

Bristol City suffered a second straight defeat as they went down in midweek to Fulham. Lucas Piazon and Tom Cairney got the goals as the Robins failed to gain any needed points.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Newcastle should win this game but you probably want to look to enhance the price on that victory for better value. Five of the nine games they have played against teams in the bottom half has seen them win and the game and over 2.5 goals so look to play this.

Newcastle to be ahead at HT and then again at FT would have paid in three of their last four home ties and this looks worth an interest also.

Newcastle Preview

Victory last time out means it is seven without defeat in the league for Newcastle and 17 points from a possible 21. They are now back top of the Championship table by one point and then five above Huddersfield in third.

It is five unbeaten at their own ground for the Magpies and four wins and a draw from their last five games. They have though gone down to a couple of shock defeats at home (Wolves and Blackburn) which will give Bristol City a small glimmer of hope.

Ten of the 16 Newcastle home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals though the last two have gone under. The North-Eastern side have kept clean sheets in three of their last four home ties. Three of their last seven in the league have seen a goal in the first ten minutes.

Bristol City Preview

It is just one win from their 13 for Bristol City with that win coming against bottom of the table Rotherham. They are right in the relegation mix now as going into the weekend fixtures they sat just one place and two points above Wigan in 22nd.

A point at Derby is the only one that the Robins have picked up on the road in their last five and it 11 without a win.  They have won just two of their 18 they have played against top half sides at any ground this season.

City games tend to be high scoring affairs with 19 of 32 going over this season and this number increases when just looking at away ties with 12 of 16 producing more than 2.5 goals. Both teams to score has occurred in eight of the last 11 and six of the last seven when just looking at away fixtures.
