Our match prediction:
Thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over WBA Norwich City put an end to their 11-game winless run in all competitions. The Canaries escaped the relegation zone, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure yet another top flight survival. Alex Neil’s charges have been misfiring of late and you should bear in mind that they scored no more than two goals in previous five league game. Newcastle United, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with their fierce rivals Sunderland in the Tyne and Wear derby, with Serbian attacker Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring a late equalizer for the Magpies. There will be fireworks when Norwich and Newcastle take on each other in Saturday’s football clash and we predict that the two teams will share the spoils in the relegation six-pointer. In their last meeting at Carrow Road the two teams played out a goalless draw.
Highlighted Team (Newcastle United):
Newcastle United failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and, as a result, they dropped to the English second tier. The Magpies will host their rivals at their St. James’ Park in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 52,354. Newcastle United have won four domestic trophies (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), while lifting six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955) and a number of star players were part of the St. James’ Park outfit in the past. 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. Newcastle’s fiercest rivals are Sunderland and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Tyne-Wear derby. The colour of Newcastle’s home kit is black and white.
