Leeds vs Newcastle Prediction And Odds: Leeds To Win
It might be too early to say this, but Newcastle vs Leeds can be seemingly termed as the relegation “six-pointer”. Winless in their first four games, Newcastle and Leeds will battle for their first slam of the season. Both, Steve Bruce and Marcelo Bielsa, are finding it arduous to produce something positive from their squad. We are predicting that one of the two teams will seal their first win of the season. Newcastle vs Leeds is scheduled to be played at the St. James’ Park on Friday, September 17th.
Highlights: Leeds 5-2 Newcastle
Leeds vs Newcastle Prediction And Odds: Prediction
Newcastle United went from getting acquired by the riches of Arabs to their manager, Steve Bruce, complaining about the lack of backing from the management. Newcastle fans were dreaming of a complete team makeover with the possibility of “oil money” pumping it. However, the Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund backed out from their proposition as the Magpies ended up signing a few young faces in the name of rejuvenation.
Bruce, however, gave his best shot with squad against Man United in GW 4. Bruce went defensive with his “3-5-3” formation to hold the Red Devils at Old Trafford. Nevertheless, Bruce would have required more than 11 defenders and a bit of almighty’s mercy to deny the great Cristiano Ronaldo from scoring on his second debut for Man United. Newcastle are 19th in the PL points table with 1 point and three losses.
Marcelo Bielsa was studied, praised and written about during his back-to-back successful seasons with Leeds. That said, Bielsa’s ‘heavy metal’ football has seemingly dipped this season by a far margin. Teams are feeding on Leeds’ high-line defense and it is getting embarrassing for them with each passing game. Bielsa’s strength relies on his attack and PL teams have been very successful in halting the likes of Bamford and Raphinha this season.
Having said that, Leeds still have plenty of time to shift their momentum this season. Newcastle should be a comparatively easy fixture. Leeds are currently 17th on the points table with 2 draws and 2 defeats in their 4 Premier League games.
