Chelsea – Newcastle : Preview & Prediction
Chelsea, Barça’s rival in the Champions League, wait next Sunday at Newcastle in Stamford Bridge, after needing extra time and even penalties to eliminate Norwich City in the replay of the previous round. The London team is already virtually ruled out of the fight for the Premier, which is third but is fifteen points from the leadership of Manchester City. As a local, he conceded few goals (7 in 12 matches) and in his stadium he has won 8 matches, has tied two and lost two. The Newcastle, fifteenth in the Premier, comes to fall in City’s fief (3-1) and although local is the second worst team in the Premier, if only counted home games would be in the middle of the table.
Chelsea are qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will face Barça after leaving Atlético out in the group stage.
The London team has won 8 of the 12 games they have played in the Premiership at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea, third, occupies a place in the Champions League.
Newcastle, fifteenth, maintains only one point ahead of the relegation zone.
Chelsea is the logical favorite and should prevail but as Newcastle is an uncomfortable rival at home we recommend being cautious because it can be too risky to bet with a handicap in favor of the locals. We are left with the simple victory.
