Bitesize Prediction: Wolves vs Newcastle – 28/08/22

Competition: Premier League

Market: Newcastle draw no bet

Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a red-hot start to the 2022/23 campaign, Newcastle will make the trip to Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Wolves might have extended on their EFL Cup adventure earlier in the week thanks to a 2-1 victory against Championship outfit Preston, Bruno Lage’s men are in the midst of a Premier League rut. Opening the 2022/23 campaign by throwing away the lead and getting hit with a 2-1 loss away at Leeds, the former Benfica boss is still waiting for his first top-flight victory. Despite being last seen putting in a rugged display away at Tottenham, the Oranges eventually suffered a 1-0 defeat in north London. Knowing that they could face a stern test when a high-flying Newcastle come to town on Sunday afternoon, Wolves have shown some extended issues at Molineux. It should be highlighted, continuing on from last season, Lage’s side have managed to win just one of their last six Premier League showdowns in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, while Newcastle might have been disappointed to have thrown away their two-goal lead against Manchester City last weekend, Eddie Howe’s men are enjoying a real purple patch. Eventually playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw with the defending Premier League champions, the ex-Bournemouth boss has been filled with praise for his side’s start to the 2022/23 campaign. Managing to extend on their EFL Cup run earlier in the week thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 victory away at League Two outfit Tranmere, the Magpies could be smelling the chance to lay down a marker here. Opening the new season on August 6th with a deserved 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest at St. James’ Park, it should also be noted that Howe’s side picked up a 1-0 victory when they last faced off against Wolves four months ago.
