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.

do not bet on the virtual horse racing,or virtual greyhound racing it is very unfair with skybet and you will lose a lot of money
Energybet is a scam.They will limit you within your first winning bet and then, after they limit you to bets of a pound or two per bet.Being only able to bet 30 pounds for things like Nadal winning with 1.05 odds, and 1-2 pounds at normal odds, they will tell you that you are not allowed to withdraw your money unless you have wagered the whole amount you deposited.If you want to withdraw it earlier they will charge you a 5% commission on your own money! That’s usury!To withdraw 500 pounds they charge you 25 pounds fee. Just because they say so.
