Preview | May 22

Burnley-Newcastle United

Can Burnley end their bad run?

It's the final matchday of the 2021/22 season. A visit from Newcastle is Burnley's latest opportunity to correct their form and end a run of two straight Premier League defeats. Despite their struggles, a good performance by the Clarets might be enough to keep them ahead of Leeds and hold on to the 17th spot in the table. But that won't come easy for Burnley, as they were defeated by the Magpies 0-1 in their last league meeting.

Burnley | LLWWW | 18th | Top Scorer: M. Cornet (8)

Burnley remain low in the table, but have looked more competent on the pitch as late. They have won 3 of the previous 5 matches to bring themselves up to 7 total wins on the season. Goals may be scarce here. The Clarets are 18th in the EPL in average xG (expected goals) at 1 per match, while their opponent Newcastle arrive with recent scoring troubles, just 6 goals in their last 5 matches. They'll look for another quality defensive performance from Dwight McNeil. He has led them this year with 52 tackles won (6th in the EPL).

Newcastle | WLLWW | 12th | Top Scorer: C. Wilson (6)

Newcastle's recent form has seen them drop down to 12th in the table. Goals may be scarce here. The Magpies are 16th in the EPL in average xG (expected goals) at 1.1 per match, while their opponent Burnley arrive with recent scoring troubles, just 6 goals in their last 5 matches. Despite recent difficulties, Allan Saint-Maximin has played well. He's been their top shot-taker this season with 63 shots (24th in the EPL).

It looks likely to be a tight low-scoring affair, but home advantage could be enough to see Burnley over the line.

Burnley-Newcastle Prediction: 1-0

Did you know? Newcastle have recorded 4 wins, 10 losses, and 4 draws on the road this season.

Can the Clarets improve and pick up points? Will the Magpies build on their last result? PokerStars Sports has hundreds of markets, so you can find your perfect bet on the big match.
