Rochdale has entered the third round of the FA Cup after winning 2-1 against Boston United in the match in the second round. In League One, the Spotland team are ranked 19th on the table with 22 points after 23  the match was fought.  Against the away team playing in the Premier League, the chances of advancing to the home team are almost no longer available.

Across the field, Newcastle United have just lost 1-2 against Everton.  Currently, coach Steve Bruce has 25 points and is ranked 11th in the Premier League.  Opening the FA Cup journey, the visitors were very lucky to face only two teams below them.  Victory is almost assured in the hands of the home team St James' Park.

Rochdale's defense is in trouble and even when playing against teams of the same class they have conceded 10 goals after 4 recent defeats.  Meanwhile, Newcastle is still a fiercely attacking team and before the team that is weaker than Newcastle's attack will have the opportunity to show their strength, so it is likely that the game will have many goals.

Rochdale is a club that is playing in the English second division and the performance has not been very good since the beginning of the season.  In the last 5 rounds Rochdale won only 1, to lose the remaining 4 matches.  In the FA Cup Rochdale attended from the first round and also struggled to overcome rivals Wrexham and Boston United.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are not in stable form in the English Premier League.  In the last 5 matches, this team has 2 wins and nothing else.  However, compared to a team that is only playing in the English 3rd division, Newcastle will not be too difficult to overcome opponents.

Both teams focused on the shots as well as the fixed situation.  In this context, corner kicks will be the main feature of the match between Rochdale and Newcastle.  Therefore, the ability to explode corners is very possible.

Although not really good in the Premier League, the difference in qualification between Newcastle and the opponent is too big.  Not only that, Rochdale is in bad shape at the tournament, which is 2 steps lower, so it will be difficult for the home team to have a positive result before the opponent from the Premier League.
