Newcastle vs Southampton Match Predictions

After claiming victory on the South Coast seven nights ago, Newcastle United are firmly in the box-seat as they seek to set up a Wembley date.

A week ago, Joelinton was the only scorer at St Mary’s, tapping home from close-range after Alexander Isak had done magnificently well down the right.

Earlier, Joelinton himself had an opener disallowed for handball, while Adam Armstrong then saw an equaliser chalked off by VAR, also as a result of an equally dubious handball.

As these two clubs reconvene on Tyneside, will Newcastle finish the job they started?

Right now though, Eddie Howe’s team are third in the Premier League and are unbeaten in 15 league games, last losing at home in any competition on 30 April.

So, a daunting prospect for Southampton as they seek to overturn that first leg deficit.

The Saints were runners-up in this competition in 2017, but will need to produce a miracle if they’re to be back at Wembley next month.

Nathan Jones’ side did at least beat Blackpool in the FA Cup on Saturday, Romain Perraud scoring both, but are really up against it in this tournament.

Each of the last 16 clubs who’ve won the first leg of a League Cup semi-final away from home have gone onto reach the final, dating back to 1987, when Arsenal produced a comeback against Tottenham.

So, will it be a night of celebration for 50,000+ Newcastle supporters at St James’ Park?

Newcastle United team news

Given that they’re out of the FA Cup, Eddie Howe’s team were not in action over the weekend, so have had seven days to prepare for this second leg.

As a result, it seems likely that Howe will name an unchanged XI for this tie.

Alexander Isak is pushing hard to start up front, but Callum Wilson’s form makes him undroppable at the moment.

Anthony Gordon cannot make his Newcastle debut here; he’s cup-tied, having featured for Everton at Bournemouth in round three.

Goalkeeper Nick Pope hasn’t conceded a goal since a 4-1 victory at Southampton on 6 November, a run of over 901 minutes, and, if he extends that here, his team will be in final.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Schär, Botman, Burn; Guimarães, S Longstaff, Willock; Almirón, Joelinton, Wilson.

Southampton team news

Nathan Jones did make a few changes for Saturday’s win over Blackpool, but his team has been notoriously difficult to predict since he took the job.

Despite his late red card in the first leg, Duje Ćaleta-Car is available, having served his one-match ban at the weekend.

James Ward-Prowse wasn’t even on the bench on Saturday, but will be straight back into the XI for this one.

Moussa Djenepo and Sékou Mara, who both scored in the quarter-final victory over Manchester City, could both miss out here, the former through injury.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Bazunu; Lyanco, Bella-Kotchap, Ćaleta-Car, Walker-Peters; Alcaraz, Lavia, Ward-Prowse, Edozie, Oršić; A Armstrong.
