Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Tips and Predictions

The fourth round of the English Premier League brings us the exciting game,  Manchester City v Newcastle. Man City, the home team, should win this easily and we reckon that the visiting team won’t even score at all.

Our Prediction For This Game:

It’s extremely hard to defend against Manchester City for the whole game, but weaker teams must try to do it and hope for the best. The home team is clear favorite in this game, but the odds on their win, even with handicap, are too low. Instead of betting on the match outcome, we will bet that Newcastle won’t even score in the game. 888sport offers great odds of 1.61 which we would take with a medium stake.

Manchester City:

Manchester City started the season with three wins in a row, but in last game the team drew 1-1 away at Wolves. They were actually behind 1-0 but managed somehow to score 20 minutes before the end and to scrape one point. This time, Pep Guardiola’s side will definitely take more care of defense, especially when his team has conceded twice in last two games; the team also conceded on the 6-1 win against Huddersfield.

Newcastle:

Newcastle has only one point from three matches and  isn’t looking good at all. The team managed to score two goals, both came through the header of Aleksandar Mitrovic. However, Mitrovic will have tough job against Manchester City since Vincent Kompany can physically challenge him.

Reasons For and Against The Tip:

+ After a 1-1 draw against Wolves, Manchester City will definitely take more care of defense.

+ Newcastle is playing very badly at the moment.

+ Newcastle’s only viable attacking option, Aleksandar Mitrovic, could be easily neutralised by Vincent Kompany.

– There’s a possibility that Manchester City could be leading by a big margin, so they could let in a consolation goal for the visitors.
