A very uneven duel can be expected for today's evening in the St. James‘ Park in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. For Manchester City is a high caliber opponent, currently ranked third in the Premier League and participant in the upcoming Champions League semi finals. In sharp contrast to that, the hosts are deeply involved in the relegation struggle. With a little prominent help, though. Currently they are ranked next to last with a humble 28 points out of 33 games. Former Real Madrid Coach and Liverpool legend Rafael Benitez is now at the helm in Newcastle. The Spaniard is entrusted with the task of preventing the ship of the Geordies from sinking.
Newcastle puts faith in the home advantage
Benitez banks his hopes on a possible dose of second wind after his team defeated Swansea City (3:0) in dominant fashion. Also Newcastle has been able to beat the likes of Liverpool and West Ham in the St. James Park. „After these games you look at the league table and realize that things look a little bit brighter. Hopefully we will be able to repeat such a success.“, said Benitez at the press conference. Their current record against the Citizens doesn't exactly reinforce these hopes. For the hosts have been beaten the last twelve times that they met them.
Manchester City has all sights set on the Champions League qualification
Manuel Pellegrini, coach of the guests, needs the points to keep the Gunners (being currently equal on points) at bay and on rank four. For only the first three ranks constitute a direct qualification for the UEFA Champions League. The struggle for the Premier League Championship is over for the Citizens. Being well behind Leicester City with 13 points the dream of collecting another championship is bound to remain just that. In spite of that the Citizens can be expected to arrive in Newcastle with their guns blazing. For they are unbeaten within the last five games.
This is what the odds at Tipbet look like:
According to Tipbet the hosts chances of winning this one are rather slim. Currently the odds for the home win are at 5.25. Should the guests walk away with another victory, one could cash in on that with odds of 1.55. So no dispute here on who the clear favorite is. Given the latest showings of the Citizens, a steam-rolling runaway victory could very well be possible. Let's look at corresponding Tipbet bets. The „over 3.5 goals“ bet has odds of 2.50 and an away victory with a handicap of 2:0 would grant Tipbet top odds of 4.35.
