Newcastle’s season is in danger of fading away at present, and the Magpies will desperately be looking to get back on track this Sunday. The hosts will need maximum points to maintain their hopes of a Champions League finish this term, while Wolves will be looking to build on their win over Tottenham last weekend.
Premier League Preview
This game comes at a crucial period for Newcastle United, as the Magpies have dropped to sixth in the standings after failing to win their previous five matches. Newcastle has now lost back-to-back games in the Premier League, which has trebled the number of games that they have lost this term. Eddie Howe will be keen to get his side back on track this weekend, as a victory could lift them back above Liverpool into fifth.
Newcastle’s most recent defeat was suffered on the road, as they were beaten by Manchester City. The Toon were slightly unfortunate in that fixture, as there were glimpses that they were back to somewhere near their best. However, despite carving out a number of clear cut opportunities, they were unable to find a way through against the defending champions.
Wolves have lifted themselves into 13th place over the past couple of weeks, and they now sit five points clear of the bottom three positions in the league standings. They have picked up three wins from their last six, while just one of their victories has been recorded in their previous four.
However, that win did come in their most recent fixture, as they performed excellently in the second period to secure a 1-0 win against Tottenham. The only goal of the game was scored by Adama Traore, and fans will be hoping that the win can help build the form over the coming weeks.
Newcastle vs Wolves Head to Head
Draws have plagued this fixture in recent seasons, with six of the previous eight ending in a 1-1 scoreline. Newcastle won this exact fixture last season by a 1-0 scoreline, while the only Wolves win against the Toon was recorded in the West Midlands in October 2021.
Newcastle vs Wolves Prediction
Draws have been exceptionally common in this fixture throughout history, and it could be a possible angle this weekend. Newcastle has issues scoring goals, while Wolves very rarely offer quality in the final third. A goalless draw could be a decent bet on Sunday.
