The EPL’s tenth round program will be a match between Burnley and Newcastle United. Bookmakers are on the future guests’ side in this couple, the Magpies of Newcastle, although the opponents are neighbors in the tournament table, there is no class difference between the opponents right now.
Prior to the start of the tournament, Burnley were one of the outsiders in bookmakers, but after nine played rounds in the English elite the Crimsons have 13 points in the asset and the eight position in the peloton. At the moment, Burnley in the table are ahead of such teams as Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester City. Burnley have had four matches at their home ground: a defeat from West Bromwich, a victory over Crystal Palace, draws with Huddersfield and West Ham, all the encounters ended with total under 2.5.
Newcastle have gained one point more after nine played rounds, unlike Burnley. Rafael Benitez’ team is on the seventh place in the EPL tournament table. Within the last five games, the Magpies won twice against Stoke City and Crystal Palace, had a draw with Liverpool and Southampton, lost to Brighton and 0:1. Newcastle have had four matches away: one victory with one draw and two defeats, 3 goals were scored and four conceded.
Burnley and Newcastle United can hardly be called offensive teams, quite the opposite, the Crimsons and the Zebras often play inefficiently. Both teams wouldn’t mind getting points, the opponents’ motivation is at high level. In this couple, a bet on total, rather than on a result looks more interesting, on total under, of course.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals in the match
