Betting prediction: Newcastle United 1-1 Crystal Palace

Much of the data points to this being a close-run-thing right up to the final whistle. Both Newcastle United and Crystal Palace have very similar numbers in goals for and goals allowed, while the head-to-head over their previous six meetings is an even affair (2-2-2). Neither side have been consistent in the final third, either.

Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace: Recommended bets

Callum Wilson to score anytime

The only player available to Steve Bruce who has more than two goals this term, Callum Wilson is – by any measure – the only Newcastle player capable of showing any amount of consistent threat in the final third. His ten goals in 2020-21 are good for top-ten in the Premier League, and if Newcastle manage to find the back of the net, there’s a fifty-percent chance it came down to him.

Wilfried Zaha to score anytime

This is a little more risky, but still possess a strong chance of occurring. Wilfried Zaha has netted nine times this season, the same amount as the next four Palace players combined. It’s also unclear which of Jean-Philippe Mateta, Michy Batshuayi, or Christian Benteke will feature in the matchday XI. While the Eagles have more goal threats (on paper) than Newcastle, the Ivorian international still represents their biggest threat in the final third.

Newcastle United vs Crystal Palace: Match preview

It was a three-point haul that came not a moment too soon for Steve Bruce and Newcastle United. The Magpies’ 2-0 win at the weekend against Everton at Goodison Park ended a nine-match skid that featured seven losses, five of which came on the bounce. Though not in the bottom three, Newcastle’s form of late has been nothing short of catastrophic; only Wolves have been worse of late.

There is not much to be happy about along Tyneside these days, with the club languishing in the bottom-half of the Premier League table each season since they earned promotion back to the English top-flight in 2017. But much of the frustration goes beyond what once was in the northeast of England, rather, what is still achievable with a side who – on paper – are better than their lack of results suggests.

When you can call upon attacking talents Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almirón, supported by what could – and maybe should – be a decent supporting cast in midfield and at the back, Newcastle should be capable of more. They won’t plant roots in the top seven places, but teams of similar or worse quality have perpetrated higher finishes than the Magpies in recent years.

Perhaps what is missing at St. James’ Park is identity; a quality that Newcastle were never in short supply of in the days of Alan Shearer, Nolberto Solano, and Gary Speed. It’s hard to look at this team under Steve Bruce and know what they are about. The win against Everton does, however, provide a potential blueprint for the rest of the season. Simplicity at its finest could be enough.

Crystal Palace must look to similar simplicity if they are to improve

Knowing what you are and what you are not is a simple principle in football that often gets overlooked as the game continues to evolve. In a bid to try to be the best version of yourself, clubs so often lose their way and end up doing more harm than good. Crystal Palace are in danger of doing just that this season.

Much like the aforementioned Newcastle, Palace should be capable of much more than they have been able to string together under Roy Hodgson. While it is not my place to say if Hodgson is indeed the problem or not, a quick glance at the players under his charge presents a simple tactical solution; counter-attack.

At their best and most-dangerous, Palace rip you apart with incisive and direct play at pace. There are few players more dangerous than Wilfried Zaha in full-flight, while youngster Eberechi Eze has settled quite well after his summer move from Queens Park Rangers. The pair have formed an on-pitch tandem capable of performing against even the best sides in the Premier League.

The signing of Jean-Philippe Mateta goes a long way to show that Palace have a very capable attacking trio they can build around moving forward, should they manage to retain Zaha. Though their quality in other areas of the pitch can be questioned, their ability to be dangerous when direct can be a simple ticket to ride out of their current struggles this season.

Being organised and compact at the back is a good way to offset deficiencies in certain areas, and Palace really fail to convince when they try to be more than the sum of their parts. When they’ve tried to be more expansive, it’s so often not come off well. Going for the jugular at St. James’ Park – at pace – is the only way Palace should approach Tuesday’s proceedings.
