Burnley VS Newcastle United Match Prediction
Newcastle won the reverse fixture 3-1 at St James’ Park back in early October. Goals from Callum Wilson (2) and Allan Saint-Maximin were enough with a consolation for Burnley from Ashley Westwood. Overall, across 108 games since 1895, Newcastle have won one more game in the head to head fixtures. A win for Burnley would square the score at 44-44 with 21 draws.

With Burnley’s current run of home draws and Newcastle’s attempts to fight off relegation with numerous draws, you would think there’s a high chance of this game producing another stalemate. However, Newcastle’s next five games are against sides from the top end of the division and they may well be tempted to push a little harder for all three points. We are backing Sean Dyche’s side to come out on top in a tight fixture.
Four points separate Burnley in 15th position and Newcastle United in 17th, the Magpies one place and two points above the relegation zone. A win for Sean Dyche’s team would go a long way to securing their top flight status for another season, a win for Steve Bruce’s men would be crucial, albeit surprising, after going winless in their last seven games. The Premier League match takes place at Turf Moor on April 11 and the live action kicks off at 12:00 local time.
