Reasons for betting on Huddersfield Town vs Newcastle United tip

The clash between Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United had been a derby match during the past season in the Championship. The newbies in this year’s campaigns have started it in an entirely different way. On one side Huddersfield Town made a fantastic result by smashing Crystal Palace in London. Newcastle was terrible at Saint James Park against Tottenham Hotspurs. Also, this is going to be the encounter of different mentalities and styles of football. David Wagner prefers an ultra-attacking approach while his opponent Rafa Benitez is famous as a cautious and defensive minded manager.
All this guarantees a lot of fun at John Smith’s Stadium.

Huddersfield Town overview

The Terriers were fantastic at Selhurst Park, and they thoroughly outplayed more expensive and experienced team. The star of the match was Steve Mounie, who scored two goals absolutely tearing Crystal Palace’s defense. That game was the third one in a row in which Huddersfield Town scored at least two goals. That is when we count the preseason. 7 of the past 9 games they have played ended with over 2.5 goals. In 6 games during that span, both teams have scored. That justifies the reputation of David Wagner who is known as the coach who wants to play attractive football and high-efficient games. Wagner was a protege of Jurgen Klopp while he was in Germany. Nahki Wells, Martin Craine, and Jonathan Hogg are ineligible for this game due to injuries.

Newcastle United overview

Something is wrong with the Magpies. Rafa Benitez was very unpleased with the management activity during the transfer window. His wishes were not granted and several of the players he wanted, headed in another direction. The game against Tottenham was an anti propaganda football for his team. Only 26% of ball possession, tells you everything, so we might expect the same tactics when they are playing away from home. A strong defense with only one striker, with a mission to protect the own net and then to score. During the preseason Newcastle was very solid, furthermore good. They had 4 victories a draw and defeat, but we have to mention that the opponents were not exactly Premiership level clubs. Jonjo Shelvey will be out for this match because of the red card he had received. Former Liverpool player stepped on Dele Alli deliberately. Florian Lejeune and Paul Dummett are still doubtful after the injuries against Tottenham Hotspurs.

Head to head matches

During the last season, both clubs were victorious away from home. Newcastle defeated Huddersfield 1-3, at John Smith’s Stadium, while the Terriers collected all three points at St. James Park, 1-2.
When we look further into history, this will be 51st match between the two clubs. Newcastle is slightly better with 21 wins, while the host has 17. 12 meetings have ended without a winner.

Prediction for Huddersfield Town vs Newcastle United tip

This game is going to be a tricky one. If Huddersfield manages to open the Magpies early enough for sure, we can expect a catastrophe of the, team from the north. On the other hand, if the guests hold on until the second half everything is possible. That will pretty much depend on the condition of the two players who picked up injuries against the Spurs. They are top defenders in this club
Anyway, we are going to, backup the hosts to win in this encounter.
For the second suggestion, we would go with a moderate number of goals, which means between two and three.

Great bookmaker and odds. Been playing with them for while, if you are good player they treat you well!
Took my real money when it stated I was…Took my real money when it stated I was playing with my bonus money. At no point did I click to play with real money. Deposited £200 to receive £200 bonus. Continuous loses of my bonus money on the spins led me to blackjack (£275 in my account) I placed 2 £25 bets and lost. I tried to withdraw my real money only to see my account has been reduced to £25. At this point they conveniently switched my loses from bonus money to real money.After 1hr on live chat we move on by emails. 4 days later a reply from customer service that if you place a bet higher than £10 (which I placed 2 £25 bets on blackjack) you lose your bonus (£200) clause 10.1.Honestly what absolute nonsense, what kind of casino limits your bets at £10? Absolute scam
Joined up are a promo email and then they suspended my account mid hedge, Cost me £50 which when I told them they didn't give a dam. Very very poor Customer Service. Avoid at all costs
