The relegation six-pointer pits Burnley against Newcastle United at Turf Moor. The Clarets are seven points out of the bottom three, so one point from this match should suffice. Injuries also ruled out Ashley Barnes and Robbie Brady, while Kevin Long has a small chance of playing against Newcastle. The Magpies showed character in their last league match, coming back from a goal down to draw with Spurs.
Burnley vs Newcastle Prediction : 1 – 1
Newcastle are desperate to get out of the relegation zone, but defeating Burnley on the road is more difficult than it seems. At Turf Moor, we expect a close match, and we hope that bettors from all over the world will see profit in betting on a tie. Due to injury, Schar and Hayden are both out, but key attacker Wilson could return in time to face the Clarets.
PLAYER TO WATCH (ROBBIE BRADY):
.Robbie Brady is an Irish footballer who currently plays as a winger for Norwich City, but he can also play left back. Brady started his youth career at St. Kevin’s Boys, where Manchester United scouts noticed him. At the age of 16, he joined the Old Trafford club in 2008.
He was a member of Manchester United’s U-18 squad, but he did not make his senior team debut. The Irish footballer spent the 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 Championship seasons on loan with Hull City before signing a permanent contract with the Tigers in January 2013 for an undisclosed fee. Robbie Brady made his Republic of Ireland debut in a 4-1 win over Oman on September 8, 2012, and it should be remembered that he scored one goal and got two assists for his teammates in the win.
He played for the Boys in Green in the 2016 European Championship finals, scoring the game-winning goal against Italy to help the team advance to the knockout stages.
TEAM TO BE HIGHLIGHTED (NEWCASTLE):
Newcastle United was relegated to the English second tier after failing to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League season. In the 2016/2017 Championship season, the Magpies will host their opponents at St. James’ Park, which has a capacity of 52,354.
Newcastle United has won four domestic titles (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), as well as six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955), and a host of famous players have played for the club.
Famous footballers who are still remembered at the club include David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins, and Kevin Nolan. Sunderland is Newcastle’s fiercest competitor, and the Tyne-Wear derby has always been a spectacle as the two local rivals meet. Newcastle’s home kit is black and white in colour.
