Newcastle vs Aston Villa Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Newcastle vs Aston Villa will be an incredible match in a wild starting round. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Newcastle and Aston Villa is always a massive match and these two teams typically produce huge scorelines. The two games last season ended with over 2.5 goals and the recent friendly match last month had a total of 6 goals. We definitely expect both sides to want to start strong and we think that there will be goals on both ends. Newcastle and Aston Villa played incredible football last season and they have only improved during the summer.

Match Result Prediction: Newcastle to Win

We think that Newcastle still have an advantage over Aston Villa and should be able to win this game. They destroyed Aston Villa last time at home with 4-0 and while Villa have improved a lot, we doubt that they can win this opening game. Newcastle were one of the best teams in the league last season and their transfers during this window were impressive and they should be even stronger now.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Newcastle

We expect a closer match between these teams than the last two from last season. However, we still think that the home side will win this game. When we compare the Newcastle vs Aston Villa line ups, we see incredible quality on both ends but Newcastle should definitely have the advantage on paper. We expect this to be one of the best matches in the opening round.

Newcastle vs Aston Villa Team Previews

Newcastle Preview

Newcastle played an exceptional season last year and we cannot wait to see how they will progress in the new campaign. The team made some incredible transfers during the summer window and they even seem stronger than they were last year. This will be a far tougher season for them but we expect them to be a Top 4 contender once again.

Aston Villa Preview

Aston Villa switched their manager last season and played like one of the best teams around the end of the campaign. The team lost only two games in the last fifteen matches of the season and managed to even get a position in Top 7. Their defense is impressive and their attack is better than it looks. We think that there is a lot of potential in this team.
