Newcastle United will play against Southampton in Premier League and we got a Football forecast for the match. The game is on Saturday, February 6 from 15:00 UK at St. James’ Park.
Newcastle United is in 16th place in Premier League with 22 points after 22 matches. The team can’t catch a break lately and is in very bad form. Their last game was on Tuesday against Crystal Palace at home and was lost 1:2. Jonjo Shelvey scored in the 2nd minute but even before the first half end Palace scored twice and won. Before this game, the team of Steve Bruce beat away from home Everton 0:2 and everyone expected that they will finally start winning again but that didn’t happen. Before the victory against Everton, the team was in a series of 5 losses in a row and now, they started another series.
Southampton is in 12th place in Premier League with 29 points after 21 games. The last match of the team was on Tuesday against Manchester United and it was a nightmare. The Red Devils won 9:0 as the Saints lost in 2019 again with the same result against Leicester. Alexandre Jankewitz was sent off in the second minute and after that, the goals started for Man. United. That was 4 losses in a row for the team of Ralph Hasenhüttl in the Premier League as before that Leicester, Arsenal, and Aston Villa also beat them. Their last victory in the league was against Liverpool and the last time that they won was against Arsenal in FA Cup.
Southampton is the favorite in the upcoming clash. However, I don’t advise you to bet on the Saints to win because the shock after what happened against Manchester United a few days earlier will be there. Newcastle is awful and also I will not bet on them. However, I expect goals because both teams can’t defend. Football forecast: BTTS
