Newcastle vs Watford Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 26th January 2019
Newcastle vs Watford– FA CUP :Newcastle isn’t a team that plays very flashy football
They are a sometimes-pragmatic team but without very flashy performances in terms of quality.
In the Premier League, the team has gotten off to a poor start, inclusively staying in the relegation zone for some rounds, but they were able to escape that
position on the last round.
Newcastle hasn’t been able to be a very strong team offensively and therefore they haven’t been scoring a lot of goals.
Things seem to have improved recently and on the last 2 matches, they managed to score 6 goals.
They’ve already won this competition 6 times and they expect to go far here, although their focus is the league and therefore, we will have some less utilized players as first options here.
Newcastle has eliminated Blackburn Rovers on the previous round, drawing at home but winning away from home in the 2nd leg.
Watford is a team that is relaxed in the Premier League, sitting in 7th place and playing good football.
They are able to go neck-to-neck against the best teams and they have an interesting playstyle, being a strong team on the offensive transitions.
Watford also has a very reasonable roster that gives them insurances for them to rotate some players while maintaining the play quality.
Some less utilized players should be an option here. Watford has never won this competition, but they want to advance.
On the previous round, they have defeated Woking by 2-0 away from home, fulfilling the minimum requirements. Watford is unbeaten for some time now and they are going through a good moment of form.
Newcastle vs Watford – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
I see this being a very tight and tactical match between the two teams, that will match up very well. Newcastle plays at home and might have a word to say, but Watford is actually the team that plays better football when comparing the two.
I don’t believe this will be a high-intensity match from the beginning and therefore, I don’t expect an early goal. This is a match to be decided on details and I believe that we will have 1 or 2 goals at most.
Newcastle has improved substantially their performance quality on the last couple of matches, and with that, they have been scoring more goals, but this is a knockout match, balanced, between two Premier League sides and because of that, I expect less than 2.5 goals scored here.
