Our Prediction:

Newcastle will win

Newcastle – Watford Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

The Belgian superstar broke the deadlock in the first half stoppage-time, but only for Ricardo Pereyra to level it up just two minutes later. Watford offered a strong resistance to Chelsea in the last fixture of the Premier League Boxing Day schedule, but they left the pitch empty-handed losing 1-2 after Eden Hazards brace for the Blues. Nevertheless, Hazard made no mistake from the spot to set the final score before the hour-mark.

In their last meeting at Vicarage Road Watford recorded a 2-1 win over Newcastle. The Hornets remained in the top half of the standings and, no doubt, they want to put icing on the cake on a very successful year with a victory over the Magpies. Experienced attacker Troy Deeney has been in a fine form in the English top flight this term and we predict that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Newcastle United are not regarded as good travelers and seeing that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Liverpool, we are tempted to put our money on the Hornets, who aim to stay in the race for a place in European competitions. Watford will be looking to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Chelsea when they welcome Newcastle United at their Vicarage Road Stadium.

Form Summary

This has put Watford back up to 9th position in the Premier League, and the fact that they are only 5 points adrift of Manchester United in 6th is a fantastic achievement at this stage of the season. With games against Newcastle, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, and Burnley coming up in the next month or so there are some real points up for grabs as well.

The color of Newcastles home kit is black and white. Newcastles fiercest rivals are Sunderland and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Tyne-Wear derby. David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins and Kevin Nolan are notable footballers who are still remembered at the club.

All this makes Both Teams to Score look a promising bet, so were backing that along with a 2-1 win for The Hornets. The first of those clean sheets was on the opening weekend of the season too, and they have conceded 17 goals in the 9 matches there since then. Newcastle have found the net in 3 of these 4 games, and theyre facing a Watford side who have only kept a clean sheet in 2 of their 10 home matches this season.

Newcastle v Watford Head-To-Head Record

Its been a long wait for the North East side to win a major domestic trophy and that wait stretches on with their record in the FA Cup being abysmal in recent years as league positions have been considered more important than progress in domestic cup competitions. Can they secure a route through to the final 16 stage of the FA Cup for the first time in 13 years by winning this fixture on Saturday afternoon at odds of 21/10 withUnibet.

Many pundits and tipsters were backing them for a difficult campaign following their poor form in the second half of last season, but Spanish boss Javi Gracia has managed to turn things around and has them playing some terrific football and they may even be in with a chance of qualifying for Europe if they can keep up the kind of form that has them sitting in 7th place with 23 games on the board. Watford have enjoyed a fine campaign in the Premier League so far this year.

They still sit at a sky-high 7th place in the league ladder thanks to a fine kick off to the campaign. James Park. However, Javi Gracia cant be quite thrilled with performances his men have been showing since November and the aforementioned loss to Newcastle at St. Watford are unbeaten in last four league matches, but they won just one along the way.
