Championship side Swansea City begin their 2020-21 campaign with a potential banana skin ahead, against League Two's Newport County in the EFL Cup. Both sides were bested by Premier League opposition in successive rounds last season but will relish an opportunity to progress so early into the new campaign.

Newport lost 2-0 at home to West Ham in R2, before Roberto Pereyra's goal and assist proved pivotal as Watford were 2-1 winners against Swansea in R3.

After a summer of change, it'll be interesting to see how these two sides match up and whether the Swans will start quickly against underdogs with nothing to lose. Who will progress? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Newport County vs Swansea City Betting Tips

Swansea head coach Steve Cooper publicly revealed his eagerness for more signings between now and next month's transfer deadline (October 5). However, one of their five summer acquisitions is particularly raring to go this weekend – Jamal Lowe, who signed an initial three-year deal from Wigan.

The striker, who scored six and created five assists in last season's Championship, opened his account with a goal in their 2-1 friendly win over Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday. Yan Dhanda, a Liverpool academy graduate, scored their second and this season represents a big opportunity for players like those two to establish themselves.

Questions will be asked of their friendly opposition, but it's understandable given the next test in store for them. Forest Green finished the shortened League Two season three points and four points ahead of Newport in 11th last term.

How will Michael Flynn's men compare against better opposition this weekend? After losing 3-0 to Cardif in two 50-minute matches on August 25, they finished their pre-season prep with a 4-0 win over Hereford four days later.

Newport County vs Swansea City Correct Score Predictions

Newport have nothing to lose and will relish the chance to sting a side two divisions above them in an early cup shock. However, I'm backing Swansea to win here – they should be too strong, even at this stage of the new campaign.
