Newcastle vs Burnley Tips


Two struggling sides meet at St. James’ Park on Thursday morning in the second round of EFL Cup as Newcastle United welcome Burnley. With both teams losing their first two matches of the new Premier League season, this could be a tense affair.

I am backing this match to be an open game considering how the two defences have been leaking goals. Both teams scoring is a likely pick, while Newcastle will fancy their chances of progression. Draw at regular time is another interesting choice.

  • Newcastle have drawn 3 of their last 5 matches against Burnley at this venue (All competitions).
  • Newcastle have won 4 of their last 6 matches against Burnley (All competitions).
  • Both teams scored in 5 of the last 8 matches between Newcastle and Burnley at this venue (All competitions).
  • Burnley have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 5 matches (All competitions).
  • Burnley have lost 4 of their last 6 away matches (All competitions).

Head to Head


Newcastle United and Burnley have played each other 109 times in all competitions with Newcastle winning 45 and losing 43 with 21 matches drawn.

Last season, these sides met twice in the Premier League with Newcastle winning both the times. A 3-1 win at this venue was followed by a 2-1 win away.

Newcastle Form


Newcastle United started the season with two losses in the Premier League. A 4-2 loss to West Ham United was followed by a 2-0 loss against Aston Villa over the weekend.

The Magpies were in touch with Villa in their last game, but a spectacular overhead kick by Danny Ings gave Villa the lead before half-time. It was doubled by a second-half penalty.

Steve Bruce’s men will now look for some solace in the Cup competition. They were defeated in the quarter-finals last season. A similar run will be lapped up by the fans.

Newcastle Team News


Martin Dubravka and Paul Dummett are injury worries for Newcastle United ahead of this match.

Burnley Form


Burnley started their own Premier League season with consecutive losses. A tight 2-1 loss to Brighton was followed by a 2-0 loss to Liverpool last weekend.

Although the score doesn’t suggest so, Liverpool were completely dominant in that match.

Burnley have now lost their last five competitive matches, conceding 12 goals and scoring only once.

Burnley Team News


Burnley will miss Dale Stevens and Kevin Long, who are both on long-term injury absentee list.

Verdict

Newcastle United and Burnley started their Premier League season pretty much similarly. Two losses in two games keep them in the bottom-half of the table. Both will look to make up for that by progressing into the third round.

I am backing this match to produce goals at both ends. Both Newcastle and Burnley have been pretty bad with their defensive shows. A draw at full-time is not a bad pick either, as both lack the extra bite to stamp their authority.
