Newcastle United and Crystal Palace meet at St James’ Park on Saturday, 6th April for a match that could be extremely close.
Newcastle United are hosting Crystal Palace at St. James’ Park this weekend for a game that could be extremely close. Just one point separates the teams in the league with Palace thirteenth and Newcastle fourteenth. While a win is unlikely to see them climb the standings, Newcastle are in danger of falling a place or two if they lose.
Newcastle drew with Bournemouth recently and before that defeated Everton. They also enjoyed a few victories prior to that, over Burnley and Huddersfield town. Crystal Palace defeated Huddersfield Town 2 – 0 over the weekend but before that lost to Watford and Brighton.
Just as very little separates the teams in the league, they have a very balanced recent history. Their last two games both ended in draws, 1 – 1 in February 2018 and 0 – 0 in September 2018. However, Newcastle United did win their two previous meetings and they will be feeling confident with the home advantage in this game.
