EPL: Wolverhampton vs Newcastle United

January 11, in the 22nd round of the English Premier League, after the series of lost away games, Wolverhampton will host Newcastle United.

Wolves currently sit in the 7th place in the table, due to last two games away. After the sensational win over Manchester City with a score 3:2, Wolves started their series of losses. December 30, 2019 Wolves lost away to Liverpool (1:0). The score wasn’t devastating and it was so-called honorable defeat, considering the fact that Liverpool currently occupies the 1st place in the table. Later, however, on the 1st of January, Wolverhampton went to visit Watford, which is by the way in the 19th place, and lost (2:1). And this defeat was not honorable at all, bearing in mind that at the 71st minute of the match Watford defender Christian Kabasele got the red card and left the field.

Newcastle United

The team sits in the 13th place in the table and, frankly speaking, doesn’t demonstrate the brightest football. The play is quite ordinary, losing game after game. December 27, while visiting Manchester United, Newcastle suffered a crushing defeat (4:1). The next day, December 28, they lost a home game to Everton (1:2). And on the 1st of January 2020, Newcastle was beaten by Leicester, also at home. So, there are no prerequisites for Newcastle to start winning or, at least, scoring more than one goal per match. In their last 5 games Newcastle scored 0-1 goals per match.

Prediction

Supposedly, Wolverhampton is capable of stopping its failure series, winning at home and climbing up the Premier League table. The opponent is quite suitable for this. Our prediction is Handicap 1 (Wolverhampton) (-1) for a great coefficient 1.8 Wolves will definitely have an excellent match and win with an advantage.
