Newcastle United vs Burnley Betting Preview – 26/02/2019

Newcastle United vs Burnley

One fixture that could prove to be a tight affair this Tuesday will be played at St James’ Park, as Newcastle United and Burnley go head-to-head. Both sides involved have found some decent form in recent times and will be looking to extend their unbeaten runs. The Toon sit down in 15th just below their opponents who have a two-point lead over them making this an important game for either side. With the danger of the relegation zone looming close for either side, neither will want to suffer a defeat. When these sides first met this season, they were evenly balanced but Newcastle managed to take the three points with a 2-1 win.

After already securing three points against Burnley, Rafael Benitez will fully believe his side can secure another win this Tuesday. However, with their opponents in strong form, they will need to be at the top of their game. A win for United would see them climb up into 14th, swapping places with their opponents and put a well-needed three points between them and the bottom three. The Toon are unbeaten in their last two games following their recent 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town, before this game they had held Wolves to a 1-1 draw. SkyBet has Newcastle to win priced at 11/10.

Rafael Benitez will be looking to Salomon Rondon on Tuesday to provide his sides main attacking threat as the forward has done for the majority of the season. Rondon sits as Newcastle’s top goalscorer this season with eight goals. Betway has the forward to score anytime priced at 5/4. Newcastle have managed to keep just one clean sheet in their last five matches and in three of those games, they have both scored and conceded. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 19/20.

Burnley have vastly improved since the start of the season and their recent form has seen them climb up into 14th, but a loss on Tuesday would see them swap places with their opponents. The Clarets have lost just one of their last five matches and picked up two draws and two wins. Burnley head into this game off the back of two wins which they have picked up against Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur. If you fancy Burnley to pick up their third consecutive win then SkyBet is offering odds of 13/5.

The Clarets success recently has come from their improved goalscoring abilities as over the last five games they have racked up eight goals. Only one of their last five fixtures have seen less than 2.5 goals scored and Betway are offering odds of 11/10. Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood both sit on eight goals this season and both can be backed with Bet365 to score anytime at a price of 13/5.
