Leicester vs Newcastle Preview: 29/09/19 Premier League

Brendan Rodgers’ side pulled off a comeback victory over Tottenham last weekend. The Foxes were no doubt aided by a dubious VAR call ruling off Tottenham’s would-be second goal. Nevertheless, three wins in four have placed The Foxes in a Champions League qualifying spot at this very early stage of the season.

Newcastle are fairing rather worse their opponents. Just one win and four goals scored leaves Newcastle just above the relegation zone. Only Crystal Palace and Watford have scored fewer goals at this stage. The Magpies have already face Norwich, Watford and Brighton, failing to come away with a victory in any of those matches.


Can Vardy add to his tally?

The Leicester forward has directly contributed to half of Leicester eight goals this season. Vardy has scored three times, most recently scoring a brace against Bournemouth. With penalties in his locker, the former England striker is a good bet to score first at 7/2 with bet365 and you can get their £100 in bet credits sign-up bonus when you create a new account to place your bets today. He will be a popular choice in Fantasy Football this week so players will be hoping he finds the net on a couple of occasions.


A low scoring affair

Despite finding themselves at opposite ends of the table, these two side have something in common. Only Crystal Palace’s matches have averaged fewer goals than either Leicester or Newcastle. Leicester have scored eight and conceded four, averaging just under 2.2 goals a game. Meanwhile, Newcastle have scored four and conceded eight, averaging 2 goals a game. Under 2.5 goals is priced at 4/5 with bet365.


 Leicester vs Newcastle Score Prediction – Leicester to win 2-0

Newcastle can be difficult to break down at times, but we don’t expect them to sit back and play for the draw against Leicester. That should allow Leicester more opportunities and with the joint best defensive record in the league, a win to nil looks likely. 2-0 Leicester is available at 6/1 and that selection completes this weekend’s Leicester vs Newcastle predictions. It would be a shock to see anything but a home win in this game.
