Newcastle United vs Leicester City Betting Tips

Currently sitting 3rd in the PL standings, just 4 points behind leaders Liverpool, Leicester will be eager to maintain their challenge at the top of the league by claiming all 3 points against a goal-shy Newcastle.

While the Geordies will have been satisfied with a fine point in a drab 0:0 draw with champions Liverpool, Bruce´s side has struggled to hit the target in recent weeks, failing to win any of their last 5 matches (all comps) and scoring just 3 goals with the Magpies suffering defeats at the hands of Man City, Leeds and Brentford.

Recent home form should give Newcastle some confidence though with just 1 defeat in their last 5 PL matches at St James´ Park, but past meetings reveal Leicester certainly enjoy this venue, with the Foxes winning on their last 4 PL visits to Newcastle. Indeed, Brendan Rodgers side has a fabulous recent record against Newcastle with Leicester winning 8 of the last 10 PL meetings including a 3:0 win in last season´s corresponding fixture.

While Leicester has dropped points in recent fixtures at Crystal Palace (1:1) and home to Man Utd (2:2), the expected return of talisman Jamie Vardy should ensure a higher level of performance from the Foxes who can be backed with confidence at 1.61 odds to claim all 3 points with Newcastle missing some key players including exciting French winger, Saint-Maximum.

The visitors have won 6 of their last 8 away PL matches and given their wonderful h2h record against the Geordies, and they have to be favoured to return to winning ways against a side that have failed to score in their last 3 fixtures in all competitions.

Newcastle United vs Leicester City Correct Score Prediction

When Vardy´s around, expect a Leicester party, and I´m confident the visitors will emerge with a comfortable 2:0 success against a goal-shy Newcastle.
