Match Date: 19 October 2013 (local)

Match venue: St James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne


Newcastle United

In their seventh (latest) match this season, Newcastle United thrashed their opponents in a 1-2 away finish. The brawl was dominated by The Magpies early on, where Loic Remy scored both goals with just an eight-minute difference between the innings. Cardiff City, the home side, only managed to score one goal via Odemwingie. This victory by Newcastle United is the side’s third this season, equaling the number of defeats they have incurred in their run, so far. A dismaying 4-0 loss at opening day is yet to be outclassed by a really riveting win. Team boss Alan Pardew must think of non-conventional drills to help his men pick up maximum points in their upcoming matches.



Liverpool have three players unavailable: Coates, Coutinho, and Johnson. The deficit is, however, not too much of a jeopardizing factor to spoil the squad’s pleasant run this season. In their last match for example, the side powerfully pounded Crystal Palace in a 3-1 home win. The Reds dominated the tourney’s first 38 minutes, and while Palace’s Dwight Gayle scored a goal in the 76th minute, Liverpool were still able to carry the day by a few notches. Overall, the troupe have only been defeated once this season; a draw with Swansea City picks up their streak’s only deadlock; while the rest of their combats all ended in sweet victories.


Football betting tip: Newcastle United are faced with their toughest competition this season. The current 11th placers may seem to be the underdogs as Liverpool have already raked 16 points to their bank, which is six points higher than what Pardew’s men have achieved. In addition, the sides’ last five meetings indicate a much stronger Liverpool, where they won three of those occasions, drawn in one, and lost only to one. In this upcoming tourney, Liverpool will be able pull off another magnificent fight. Probable finish would approve three goals for The Reds, and only one goal for The Magpies.
