St James Park, Newcastle, England
Key Stat: Newcastle now have just one goal in their last eight in all competitions.

Leeds won 5-2 when these teams met last month in their first top-flight fixture since 2004. Jeff Hendrick and Ciaran Clark had scored either side of Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo netting for the home team, but Stuart Dallas, Ezgjan Alioski and Jack Harrison all netted late on to secure a 5-2 home win.
Newcastle United are in horrible form and Leeds are 10/11 to win with all four of Bet365, 888sport, Betway and 10Bet.
Steve Bruce’s side simply cannot score goals and you back against both teams to score at 5/4 with 888sport.
Patrick Bamford has been lacking goals after his fine start to the season, but it would sum up Newcastle’s season of this was to be the match he re-found his goalscoring form. He is 21/20 with 888sport and Bet365.
Newcastle’s dismal form shows no sign of ending soon and Leeds should take advantage to seal a league double over them with victory in this match.
