Newcastle – Tottenham
Newcastle United are back in the Premier League! After one season in the Championship, now The Magpies are back in the elite of English football! On Sunday afternoon Newcastle will host Tottenham in a match from the first round of the new season of the Premier League. Here are our soccer betting tips for this game!
Led by Rafael Benitez, Newcastle had a successful season in Championship and reached their big goal – a return to the Premier League. Now their ambitions are higher than just survival – they will want to make an impression in the best league in the world.
During the summer Newcastle paid 13.6 million to Norwich for Jacob Murphy. They also brought in Javi Manquillo, Florian Lejeune and Christian Atsu. The club was left by Florian Thauvin, who signed a contract with Olympique Marseille.
Newcastle will have a difficult test in the first round of the league. They will meet one of the contenders for the league title – Tottenham. Last season Spurs finished second in the league, being bettered only by the champion Chelsea.
It’s kind of surprising that Tottenham did nothing on the market so far. The club sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City, but nothing was done for finding a replacement. So far Spurs didn’t spend a pound for new players and this is really strange. But until the market closes there are 20 more days, so maybe the Londoners will surprise us with a big move on the market.
It’s going to be a curious match because of another reason as well. Both managers – Rafa Benitez and Mauricio Pochettino are master tacticians. It’s going to be really great to watch them trying to outsmart each other. Who will win the battle of the minds?
These were our soccer betting tips for the match between Newcastle and Tottenham. We wish you a good luck!
