Man United – Newcastle betting tip, prediction & odds 15.05.2024

Premier League, Wednesday, 15.05.2024

It’s a catch-up match and also the penultimate game of the season: The Red Devils host the Magpies on Wednesday evening.

It is of course also a hugely important match in the race for the international places. The visitors have the slightly better starting position.

Will they be able to take it to the finish line? My Manchester United Newcastle betting tip is slightly optimistic in this regard

For the team of coach Erik ten Hag, there is currently little hope of a smooth exit from the Premier League.

They have had nothing to do with the Champions League for months, and now they are in danger of losing the Conference League as well

Ahead of the clash with Newcastle, they are three points off sixth and seventh place respectively. Basically, they have to win their last home game of the season if they want to play internationally next year.

Because the exit strategy of making it to Europe via the FA Cup, where they face Manchester City in the final, seems an equally unrealistic scenario.

The Magpies, on the other hand, are in sixth place ahead of Wednesday’s clash. One reason for this was their recent run of five wins from eight matches (2U, 1N).

Their form away from home has played a major role in this. After winning just one of their first ten away games of the season (2U, 7N), they have recently picked up four wins from seven matches (3N).

In addition, the two encounters with the Red Devils so far this season should be encouraging. The visitors won both in the first half of the season and in the cup!

And yet top bookmakers such as Happybet are skeptical about a third win in a row this season in the Manchester United Newcastle betting tip

The reasons for this are manifold. On the one hand, Eddie Howe has yet to win a PL away game in Manchester in his coaching career (2U, 12N).

The only coach who has failed to win more often against the Red Devils or the Skyblues is Steve Bruce, who went winless 26 times.

On the other hand, with the exception of the 3-0 EFL Cup win at Old Trafford, the Magpies have often struggled. Although that is an understatement

Only under David Moyes have the hosts lost at home in the Premier League. In the other 27 games, there have been 18 home wins!

One problem, however, is the offense. They have scored just one goal in their last three games. The Man United Newcastle betting tip should therefore not be based on a scoring festival

An away win would therefore not only be historic for the visitors. It would also be the Red Devils’ tenth home defeat in all competitions – something that has never happened to them before!

With Bruno Fernandes out through injury, Marcus Rashford will be all the more important. Without the Portuguese, the Red Devils only won 40% of their league games. With him, it was 53%

Rashford, on the other hand, was in particularly good form against Newcastle. The England international scored in his last two starting appearances against the Magpies. Will he score again on Wednesday?

At Betano Sportsbook, you’ll find a prediction of around 3.30 for a goal from him for your United Newcastle betting tip before kick-off

Even though Howe’s team are not the heavy favorites going into the game, I think they have a good chance of winning.

The reason for this, in addition to the Red Devils’ poor form, lies above all in the Magpies’ last three competitive matches against United. In any case, there won’t be many goals.

Therefore, my Man United Newcastle betting tip is: There will be less than 3.5 goals
