Manchester United is good in defense!
Manchester United are 2nd in the Premier League. But they are 10 points behind the leader and have no chance for a title.
The only thing they can fight for is a place in the Champions League.
They are in a series of 6 games without a loss. But their last two draws with UBA and Everton in the Premier League are disappointing.
However, their protection is at a good level. As the Red Devils allowed only 4 goals in these 6 matches.
Newcastle suffers without its goal scorer!
Newcastle is involved in the struggle for survival.
They enter this match after a 0-2 loss to Chelsea. In a match in which they did not create anything in attack.
Now they will be in a second consecutive game without their goal scorer Callum Wilson. And its absence has a serious impact on their attack.
Prediction for Man United - Newcastle
Newcastle are traditionally one of the most comfortable rivals for Manchester United.
And it is really very likely that the Magpies will lose in this match as well.
However, the Red Devils have serious difficulties against a low block of defense.
And no doubt Newcastle will offer them just that.
For this reason, I'm not sure if Bruno Fernandes' efforts will be enough to score.
Adding to Man United's chronic weakness to surprise with bad games, I'm not at all sure if it's worth betting on.
However, I know that they were even outplayed by UBA, see xG data . And 0.61 xG for them is just a tragic indicator.
Of course, Newcastle have 1.99 xGA (scoring) in their away games this season.
But the Red Devils are again without Paul Pogba, while Edison Cavani is in question for this match.
And relying mainly on Fernandes, who was a major player in Italy in the victory over Sociedad, is a bit risky.
In short, here we have on the one hand a host with a very strong defense and limited at the moment from injuries and fatigue attack.
And on the other hand, a guest with a weak attack and weak defense.
I can't expect more than two goals in such a match. And I even choose to have at most one.
- victory for Man United
- security: 8/10
- exact result: 2-0
