FA: Newcastle vs Cambridge




Although he is playing very badly in the English Premier League and is still in great danger of having to part with the most prestigious football field in the foggy country. However, that does not mean that Newcastle will give up the FA Cup, even “Chicken” also aims high in this arena to salvage a dismal season. With that motivation, it is difficult for an opponent as weak as Cambridge to stand in the way of teacher and coach Eddie Howe.

In their last appearance, Newcastle had an impressive match to draw Man Utd with a score of 1-1, that result also ended a streak of 3 consecutive defeats. However, “Chich cho” was somewhat disappointed because they did not get a complete victory after taking the lead early. The Magpies go into this match without a win in their last 4 outings and they are also without a clean sheet in the aforementioned streak. In the English Premier League, Newcastle only had 1 victory after going through 19 rounds.

The draw to 8 and received 10 defeats leaves Newcastle at the penultimate position in the rankings. Holding 11 points, coach Eddie Howe’s team is 2 points behind the safety group and has kicked more than 1 match. If it is not possible to break through in the second leg, the prospect of relegation is very close to Newcastle. Recently, this team is having very strong moves in the market. Being backed by rich owners from Saudi Arabia, it is likely that Newcastle will make a change in the upcoming journey.

Cambridge of course cannot compare with Newcastle in terms of strength at the present time. Remember that the away team is only playing at the League One playground and they are also struggling in the English 3rd Division. After 24 rounds Cambridge only gave themselves a total of 27 points and is currently in 16th place on the rankings. They are 5 points ahead of the relegation group and still have many concerns in the upcoming journey. Cambridge’s performance also has many problems and has not won in the last 3 matches (draw 1, lose 2).

In their most recent match, Cambridge drew 0-0 with Portsmouth in League One. In the last 10 matches, they only got 4 wins and conceded 2 or more goals in 4 matches. Away from Cambridge, they played worse when they lost 4/6 of the last trip away from home and won only 1 of them. Not to mention the last 3/4 away matches, Cambridge have conceded 2 or more goals. Considering the confrontation history, Cambridge did not win against Newcastle after 4 encounters in the past (draw 1, lose 3).
