Current form — Newcastle v. Norwich

The Magpies continue to look blunt

Newcastle will enter the match hoping to see the back of some rather disappointing results in recent matches. It is not all bad, but it is not fantastic either for Eddie Howe’s side right now with just 2 points from their last 3 matches. They first drew 1-1 against Brighton, followed by another draw. This time 3-3 against Brentford, before going down in a 2-0 defeat against Arsenal.

The Canaries are in a nice flow

Norwich will be out to extend their fine run of results lately. Dean Smith’s side look well suited to take on any opponent at the moment, as their last 3 matches saw them gaining 7 points. They ran out 1-2 and 2-1 winners against Brentford and Southampton, respectively. Their winning streak came to an end against Wolves, who claimed a point in a 0-0 draw.

The Magpies are the bookies’ favorite to claim a win here. However, in current form siding with outsiders Norwich at 3.90 look like a decent value pick for the punter chasing a nice accumulator. Should they split the points, it returns you 3.70 with the bookmakers, depending on your preferred betting strategy.

Newcastle v. Norwich — fixture history

The last time these teams met at St James’ Park, the game finished with a 0-0 scoreline.

Current table in the Premier League

According to the Premier League table, the difference between these two opponents is currently only 3 points. That means this round 14 match will be important for both teams and their positions. Newcastle have an opportunity to catch up with Norwich who currently sit in 19th on 9 points in this upcoming match on Tuesday. However, the latter will surely try to extend the gap in the standings.

Primary goalscorer

Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Callum Wilson. He is one of the Newcastle players, who is showing decent form right now. He managed to find the back of the net 2 times in his most recent outing. Surely, he will want to add more goals against Norwich.

The visitors will be looking to in-form Teemu Pukki to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. The Finn has netted 2 goals for Norwich in their latest matches.
