Newcastle United F.C. vs Southampton F.C. Prediction 31 January 2023

Tournament: EFL Cup
Location: St James' Park, Newcastle upon Tyne
Match date: 01/31/2023 at 20:00

A week ago, Newcastle beat Southampton 1-0 and came close to the final of the League Cup. Will Magpies achieve their goal?

More than half the distance of the Premier League is behind, and during this time Newcastle had only one defeat. It’s not surprising that with such a game the Magpies occupy the third position and seriously claim to get into the Champions League. It should be noted that in the League Cup they passed the barriers in the form of Tranmere (2-1), Crystal Palace (1-0), Bournemouth (1-0) and Leicester (2-0).

In the Premier League, Southampton have fallen to the bottom of the peloton, but they are only two points behind the salvation zone, so the Saints still have a chance to remain in the elite. Surprisingly, they move very confidently in the cup, beating Cambridge 3-0, Sheffield Wednesday 2-1, Lincoln 2-1 and Manchester City 2-0.

Newcastle know how to keep the advantage in the score, and they do it much better than showing bright and productive football. We don’t think that we will see at least a hint of scoring extravaganza here.
