Southampton vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Southampton picked up a crucial point against Bournemouth after a goalless draw at the Vitality Stadium. The Saints have now gone without a goal in the last four league games. Newcastle also endured more trouble in front of goal as they lost 1-0 against Brighton at St James’ Park. Owner Mike Ashley was in attendance and he witnessed plenty of dissatisfaction from the supporters at the final whistle. Baram Kayal came up with the only goal of the game in the 29th minute to provide a crucial three points for Chris Hughton’s men.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This match is likely to be one of the dull games of the weekend. Southampton have been unable to score in four straight league games while Newcastle are marginally better after scoring in one of the last three games. Southampton have been quite solid at the back but they lack the offensive creativity to get past Newcastle – even at home. The St Mary’s Stadium has witnessed Southampton end up on the winning side only once in 2018 league games and I would rather back a draw in this match.

Newcastle do play with the bit more freedom when they are away from home and it was seen in the first-half performance against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Yet, Benitez may find it difficult to motivate his players against Southampton, who are solid defensively. An attractive choice would be to back under 1.5 goals in total.

Southampton Preview

Southampton’s poor offensive threat is becoming a major headache for the south coast club, as they have been unable to pull away from the drop zone even with multiple winnable matches coming along their way. Southampton’s six-goal tally is only marginally better than goal return for Huddersfield and Crystal Palace in the first nine games of the campaign. Even home games have provided little joy for Southampton supporters, who have witnessed the team getting a league victory at the St Mary’s Stadium only once in the last 15 matches. Danny Ings remains as the club’s top scorer but with only three league goals.

Southampton Team News

Mark Hughes has a fully fit squad at his disposal.

Newcastle United Preview

Rafa Benitez appears to be in danger of losing his job after watching his team slide to a seventh defeat in nine league matches this season. The Magpies have been at the bottom of the table for a considerable time to worry owner Mike Ashley, who has also faced the wrath of supporters for failing to make an investment into the squad. Benitez is out of contract at the end of the campaign and Ashley may be forced into a decision – with the January window approaching soon – depending on the results in the next few weeks. Joselu is Newcastle’s top scorer but with only two league goals.

Newcastle United Team News

Florian Lejeune (cruciate ligament) is unavailable due to injury. Salomon Rondon and Ciaran Clark are just returning from injuries.
