Newcastle vs Aston Villa Soccer Betting Tips
Does Newcastle pass the 40-point mark?
The Magpies are confident about the end of the season. Even before the almost three-month break in the season, Newcastle United remained unbeaten twice in a row. The series was increased to three games last weekend. Newcastle won 3-0 in the home game against Sheffield United, making a big step towards relegation.
According to the 40-point myth, the Magpies are currently only two points short of it. It would be all the more important for Newcastle United to make the next match in the Premier League victorious. Aston Villa comes in handy as a weak opponent. It is quite possible that the Magpies will win three games in the Premier League for the first time this season.
The best bookmakers see Newcastle vs. Aston Villa as favorites according to odds. After the strong performance last weekend, we find a prediction of the home side highly recommendable. After all, the Magpies scored three goals in St. James Park against the second strongest defense of the Premier League.
Aston Villa, on the other hand, has already played two matches and will play their third competitive game within a week on Wednesday evening. After a goalless draw against youngest Newcastle opponent Sheffield, there was a 1-2 home defeat against Chelsea FC last weekend. The negative series at Villa continues.
Newcastle – Statistics & current form
Steve Bruce can look confidently into the season finale of the Premier League. The 59-year-old Englishman recently scored important points in the struggle for relegation with the Magpies and thus expanded the points cushion to the relegation places. If the home game is also won on Wednesday evening, Newcastle breaks the ominous 40-point mark to stay in the league.
Only three relegated teams with 40+ points since 1996/97
According to the current form of the black and white, a home win of Newcastle against Aston Villa on the 31st day of the Premier League is by no means absurd. Most recently, a prediction for the home game against Sheffield United, the Premier League’s second strongest defense, had come true. Now the Magpies have a comparatively easier task.
In St. James Park, Newcastle has a record of 6-6-3 in 15 home games. For four home games in a row, the team around head coach Steve Bruce has been unbeaten. There were two home wins and two home draws, all of which were kept clean. Compared to the weak results from the first half of the season, this is a commendable statistic.
Big change in summer?
Magpies fans will hardly be able to expect the next season. The previous Newcastle owner Mike Ashley namely sold the club. Under the new investor – possibly a Saudi investment fund from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman – investments should be made properly in the Magpies squad.
This is to keep Newcastle United up with other heavyweights on the island. The upcoming summer break shows whether the plan will be implemented in the form. For the time being, relegation has top priority for the Magpies this season. Black and white coach Sean Longstaff and Matthew Longstaff will be absent on Wednesday evening due to injury. There are no further failures. If Newcastle wins against Aston Villa, odds of 2.40 will be paid out for tip 1.

Aston Villa – Statistics & current form
For Aston Villa, the year 2020 has not really gone according to plan so far. The Villans have won only two Premier League games so far this calendar year. For three match days, Aston Villa has now been in 19th place in the table – even though direct relegation competitors also failed. How long the form crisis will last is not really foreseeable.
Heavy remaining program
The Villans do not face the easiest hurdles on the remaining eight game days. Among other things, Aston Villa will meet the leaders from Liverpool next week. If the Reds’ championship is not sealed by then, it will hardly be possible for the poorly formed Villans to gain a point.
It would be all the more important to get a relief in the upcoming match against Newcastle United. The Villans may thus be able to leave a relegation zone for the time being. According to this year’s away record from the penultimate table, there are hardly any arguments for an away win in St. James Park. In the 15 away games of the current season there were only eight points.
On average two goals per away game
This miserable foreign score is only undercut by Norwich City, the bottom of the table. Most recently there were three consecutive away bankruptcies for Aston Villa, including two defeats against direct relegation opponents such as Southampton (0-2) and Bournemouth (1-2). It is quite possible that the next away loss will be cashed.
Dean Smith’s side suffered six defeats in their last seven competitive matches. Most recently there was a home defeat against Chelsea FC last weekend despite a 1-0 halftime lead. Smith will suffer five outages in Newcastle’s St. James Park.
The options for possible rotations are therefore limited. The third competitive game within a week will certainly make itself felt after the three-month break in the season.
Probable lineups of Aston Villa:
Nyland – Targett, Mings, Home, Konsa – McGinn, Douglas, Hourihane – Grealish, Davis, El Ghazi
Last games from Aston Villa:
06/21 2020 Aston Villa 1 – 2 Chelsea London
