Newcastle will be at home at St James Park this weekend as they take on Southampton in the next game of the English Premier League season. Both teams are fighting to avoid relegation and due to that reason, this game will be very exciting to watch.
Newcastle United are a poor side this season but they have managed to play well on occasion, especially at home. The Magpies have defensive issues which has caused them to concede too many goals this season. In addition to that, they have failed to score enough goals which has resulted in a dire situation for the club. The manager Rafa Benitez and his top players all look like they are ready to leave the club and this has resulted in a very negative atmosphere at the club. I think that winning this game will be tough for Newcastle but they must get together and play for this club if they want to win.
On the other side of the coin, Southampton are not looking good either. The Saints are also a team that looks like they are ready to give up. The top players have left the club and the replacements just don’t look good enough. Traveling to St James Park is always a hard task and looking at the current form of the away side, it looks like it will be even harder. Southampton will need to defend well and ensure that they can silence the crowd if they wish to get anything out of this game.
With everything taken into consideration, I am going to predict that this game ends as a draw. Both teams are very poor and I think neither are good enough to win. We are getting a good enough price for this wager and as a result, this is what I am going to suggest for this game.
