Norwich City welcomes Newcastle United
Norwich City welcomes Newcastle United in a game from the second round of the Premier League. For Norwich this is a first match at home since their promotion from Championship. Let’s take a look in our winning soccer predictions.
Norwich City had a very tough task in the first round of the league. The Canaries had to visit the legendary Anfield and rival the European champion Liverpool. It didn’t end very well for Daniel Farke’s team, because the Reds achieved a big 4-1 win in front of their fans.
Norwich’s only goal at the Anfield was scored by the Finnish striker Teemu Pukki, but it was far from enough for the visitors. The Scottish centre back Grant Hanley scored himself an own goal, while Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi finished the job for Liverpool.
Newcastle United on the other hand also kicked off the new season with a defeat. Steve Bruce debuted as a manager of the Magpies, but they suffered a 0-1 loss at home from the hands of Arsenal. The first half went without any goals scored, but in the second half Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the winning goal for the Gunners.
It’s going to be a difficult season for Newcastle. The previous manager Rafael Benitez left the club, having some problems with the board. He was replaced by another experienced coach – Steve Bruce, but most of the pundits expect to see the Magpies fighting against relegaton. It remains to be seen if this is going to happen or not.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Premier League clash between Norwich City and Newcastle United at the Carrow Road in Norwich. The newcomers will try to show their strenght in front of their fans, while just like them, the Magpies will try to win their first points for the new campaign.
