Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Wolves were able to snatch a third consecutive league win after beating Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park. It was a mightily impressive result for Wolves, who opened the scoring after just seven minutes through Ruben Neves. Andre Gomes equalised with a spectacular solo goal in the 27th minute, but Wolves were crucially back in front when Raul Jimenez scored just before half-time. Leander Dendoncker was able to confirm the win with a second-half goal. Despite stubborn defending, Newcastle United lost 1-0 against Spurs at Wembley. Rafa Benitez almost saw his team snatch a point before Son Heung-Min came up with a goal in the 83rd minute.

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

Betting Tips and Predictions

Newcastle have been very defensive in recent matches and the presence of Almiron makes the team quite strong in terms of counter-attack. Rafa Benitez is likely to build a team around Solomon Rondon and Almiron, but there is little time to witness a significant impact from the new signing. Wolves, meanwhile, are in a good spot after picking up a string of positive results. The confidence level within the home team is quite high and my pick would be to back a win for Nuno’s team.

There have been goals in recent matches for Wolves, while going with an ultra-defensive formation has prevented Newcastle from hitting the goals on a regular basis. Wolves largely prefer a counter-attacking style, and I would opt for a game with under 2.5 goals.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Wolves have been in stunning form over the last few weeks, as Nuno’s team have finally been able to match results to their performance. A major factor behind their run of three consecutive league victories is the form experienced by Raul Jimenez, who simply cannot stop scoring at this moment. The forward is just one shy of hitting double figures for the league campaign. Wolves have been able to play one style of football without many alterations and they need to maximise this momentum in order to rise as much as possible in the league table. Jimenez has been Wolves best player by a significant margin this season.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Diogo Jota (knock) and Ruben Vinagre (flu) are missing from action for Wolves.

Newcastle United Preview

Newcastle were able to invest a huge amount of money into Miguel Almiron, but Rafa Benitez has so far been unable to field the club record signing due to work permit issues. Now, the £20 million player has been able to clear the work permit issues and he is now set for his debut for the Magpies. His arrival goes some extent to quenching the thirst for some much-needed investment into the playing staff. Newcastle have a serious lack of creativity within the squad and Almiron has proved to be a vital source of goals and assists in the MLS. The likelihood of Newcastle staying up in the division is quite high due to teams like Huddersfield and Fulham being rather poor.

Newcastle United Team News

Paul Dummett (hamstring) is the only player unavailable for Newcastle.
