In the last round of the championship, Jurgen Klopp's charges could not beat Leeds at home, ending the match with the Peacocks in a 1:1 draw. This draw interrupted Liverpool's good streak of three in a row. During this period, the Merseysides beat Wolverhampton (1:0), Arsenal (3:0) and Aston Villa (2:1).
The victory over the Villans was just at the home arena, where Liverpool have been playing catastrophically lately. Prior to this successful result, the Reds lost six games in a row at Anfield, scoring just one goal. Moreover, during this unfortunate period the Lersisiders lost not only to teams from the leading group, but also to outsiders. In general, out of 16 matches in the current championship, Klopp's wards won half at home, that is eight, lost in six and ended two in a draw.
Three key defenders, Joel Matip, Joseph Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, as well as midfielder Jordan Henderson, have settled in the infirmary until the end of the season. Doubtful are Curtis Jones, Nathaniel Phillips, Divock Origi and Quivin Kelleher.
In the Premier League table Newcastle moved up to 15th place. The “forty” have 35 points and they are seven points ahead of “Fulham”, which leads the group of outsiders. At the same time, Steve Bruce's charges played less for the match than the “summer residents”.
On the other hand, Newcastle have had three defeats in their previous five games. In addition to Brighton, the team also lost to Chelsea (0:2) and Manchester United (1:3). In general, in terms of playing on the rivals' fields, the “forty” have only 17th place in the division. They lost nine of the 16 guest games.
Defenders Jamal Lassels and Fabian Sher, as well as midfielders Ryan Fraser and Isak Hayden will miss the upcoming meeting due to injuries. So, what is the soccer bet prediction for today?
Our prediction is a win for Newcastle with a handicap (+2) goals for 1.68 in BC Betway.
We also believe that the meeting should be productive. Although Liverpool scores well in recent games, they rarely fail to concede at home.
Second bet is for a total over 2.5 goals for 1.77.
Place a bet on the line of Betway with odds of 1.68.
