Newcastle United experienced a major setback in their Champions League campaign, with their European aspirations ending in a disappointing home defeat.
This Saturday, they’re up against a Fulham team that has been in a goal-scoring frenzy in their recent matches.
Eddie Howe’s Newcastle initially took the lead against AC Milan, but a subsequent 2-1 loss marked their third consecutive defeat in all competitions, placing them at the bottom of their group.
Meanwhile, Fulham has surged to the upper half of the Premier League table following some remarkable performances. They secured a resounding 5-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at Craven Cottage and replicated this scoreline against West Ham United, sending their London rivals home in disarray.
Additionally, Fulham nearly clinched a win at Anfield, only to lose 4-3 to Liverpool after conceding two late goals. In total, they’ve netted 14 goals in their last three games.
Despite these impressive home wins, Fulham has struggled on the road, with only one away victory this season. In contrast, Newcastle has been formidable at home, winning seven of their eight home matches.
Betting Outlook Newcastle United is the slight favourite, priced at 20/23. Fulham is available at 3/1 and a draw is set at 14/5 with bet365.
Key Players Anthony Gordon has been crucial for Newcastle, scoring important goals, including a winner against Manchester United. He’s 7/2 to score anytime.
For Fulham, Mexican maestro Raul Jimenez has found the back of the net three times in his last two games and is a good bet at 3/1 to score again.
