On the eve of the 6th round of the English Premier League Sheffield United accepts Newcastle United, which promises to be an interesting match. Last time Sheffield United is experiencing difficulties: in the last five matches he was unable to win a single victory, scoring only five goals and conceding nine. Notably, they lost to lower division side Lincoln in a penalty shootout in the EFL Cup, which may have affected their morale. However, in matches with such high-quality teams as Tottenham and Manchester City, they lost with a difference of just one goal.
Newcastle United, on the contrary, demonstrates a more balanced game: two wins, zero draws and three defeats. A recent impressive 0-0 draw with AC Milan in the Champions League group stage demonstrates their ability to withstand pressure from formidable European teams. In addition, in the latest Premier League matches, Milan has shown both high results (5:1 against Aston Villa) and minimal victories (1:0 against Brentford).
Historically, the meetings of these teams took place in intense competition. In the last two meetings, both teams won one victory with a score of 1:0. This may indicate a traditionally tense and cautious game in this meeting.
Event: Match outcome
Bid: Win Newcastle United, CF 1. 47
Why: Based on recent form and the statistics given, Newcastle United are more likely to win. They have won 2 of their last 5 Premier League matches, unlike Sheffield United who have not won a single win in their last 5 matches. In addition, Newcastle have scored 8 goals in their last 5 league matches, while conceding 7. On the other hand, Sheffield United conceded 9 goals and scored just 5. The odds for Newcastle to win reflect this: the odds are 1.47. Additionally, Newcastle's recent performance in the Champions League, a draw with AC Milan, speaks volumes about the quality of the game, especially given Sheffield's current form.
Newcastle's recent form, their best goal difference in recent matches and Sheffield's lack of wins make this the most attractive bet. The odds are not very high, but they offer a reasonable return for a bet that, based on the statistics presented, is likely to go.
Event: Total goals
Bid: Total goals more than 2.5, CF 1. 63
Why: Both teams have played matches with more than 2.5 goals recently. 4 of Sheffield United's last 5 matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored, while 3 of Newcastle's last 5 matches have also seen over 2.5 goals scored. Given Newcastle's attacking potential and the vulnerability of Sheffield's defence, it can be assumed that at least three goals will be scored in the match.
Event: Both teams will score
Bid: Both teams will score - Yes, CF 1. 78
Why: Sheffield United, despite their problems, managed to score in recent matches. Newcastle, being the stronger team, also conceded in most of their matches. Statistics show that in this match there is a chance that both teams will score.
Event: Total corners
Bid: Total corners over 9.5, EF 1.51
Why: Considering the past matches of both teams, the number of corners in total is usually around or above this mark. Given Newcastle's aggressive play, we can expect quite a few corners in this match.
Event: Handicap (Handicap)
Bid: Handicap Sheffield United +1, CF 2. 13
Why: Although Sheffield United are not in their best form, they may be able to keep the scoreline to a minimum. A +1 handicap means that if they lose by just one goal, the bet will still win. This provides a fallback option for those who believe Sheffield United can put up a decent fight.
