When the two teams clash in their next EPL fixture coming this weekend, both Newcastle and Bournemouth will be eyeing the much-needed 3 points. If the Magpies win, they will secure a win in the top ten in the League’s tally; they are currently 11th in the EPL table. Bournemouth on the other hand is already in the top ten and a win at St. James’ Park will allow them to move further up the table. Speaking about their last clashes, Magpies will be coming from a dull, goal-less draw. Bournemouth on the other hand had an exciting last game where they managed to defeat Nottingham Forest 3-2.
Although Newcastle only has a single win to their name this season, they are still considered in good form, given they managed three draws. Playing at home, they secured one victory and two draws. In total they have scored 7 goals, scoring an average of 1.17 goals per match.
Likewise, AFC Bournemouth is also looking good this season. They won two games in the current season and have a winning probability of 33%. However, they have also lost 3 games and ended 1 in a draw. Moreover, one, particularly concerning stat for Bournemouth, is the goals they have conceded, which is currently 3 per match.
Records indicate that Newcastle plays much better in the first half of the game, and boasts a goal-scoring probability of 71%. Therefore, Cherries have to put up a strong defense in the first 45 minutes if they wish to stop the Magpies from scoring goals. Besides, in their recent games Cherries were only able to break through the defense of their opponents after 75 to 80 minutes in the game. Cherries are in good shape this season, however, the challenge ahead is too demanding and they will need to put up their best if they really wish to win the game at St. James Park.
