Newcastle and Leeds United face off on Tuesday in an English Premier League showdown at St. James Park.
Newcastle currently sits in 16th place in the standings with 19 points picked up. Newcastle comes into this game having lost three games in a row and during those three games they have failed to put any goals in the back of the net. In the last game against Aston Villa they gave up a goal in the 13th minute and after they really had no chance to keep it close. Newcastle only had one shot on target and that wasn’t enough as they were defeated. Newcastle on the season has put 18 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 32 goals. Callum Wilson has been the best player for Newcastle putting eight goals in the back of the net.
Leeds United so far this season has picked up 23 points which puts them in 12th place in the standings. Three games ago Leeds United beat West Brom 5-0, but since that point they have really struggled. In the last game against Brighton, Leeds United had 67 percent of the possession, but they only managed two shots on goal and they were defeated. Leeds United has put 30 goals in the back of the net, while their defense has given up 34 goals. Patrick Bamford has been the best player for Leeds United and on the season he has put 10 goals in the back of the net. In this game, Leeds United needs the offense to be good.
I think both of these teams are going to be good and there will be plenty of scoring by both teams. Look for this game to go well over the total. Back the over. In terms of the side Leeds United is the play.
