Watford (WLLLD) and Newcastle United (LDWLD) will meet on Saturday, July 11th for an English Premier League match. The match is scheduled for a 7:30 AM EST start time and it will be played at Vicarage Road.
Watford won one of its biggest matches of the season, even though it was against lowly Norwich City. Norwich City took the lead in the 4th minute, but Craig Dawson of Watford was ready to go. He scored only six minutes later to equalize the game. Then, in the 55th minute, Danny Welbeck scored for Watford to give his club the 2-1 lead. That lead would hold, and Watford earned a really imperative three points. Watford is now four points above Aston Villa and AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League standings, safe from relegation for at least the moment. This will be another key match for Watford, as a home match against a feasible opponent needs to provide another three points for Watford if they want a good chance to stick around in the Premier League.
Newcastle United is coming off a disgustingly bad performance against Manchester City, one of the worst performances for the club in its history. Manchester City won by the final score of 5-0, as it would be far to say that City was playing with a vengeance after its 1-0 loss to Southampton. Manchester City poured it on, taking 23 shots with nine of them on target. City also owned a whopping 74% possession advantage and took eight corner kicks. Newcastle United has not been in great form as of late, as the team has only won one of its last five matches. Newcastle United is still more than safe from relegation, as the club is currently in 13th place in the Premier League table. Newcastle United will have one less day of rest than Watford heading into this match, as well as Watford does not have to travel anywhere, but Newcastle United does.
The last time Watford and Newcastle United met was on August 31st of 2019, in which the match resulted in a 1-1 draw in front of the Newcastle United supporters.
I like Watford to win this match, as so many things are going for them in this one. Rest, travel, being home, needing the game more, all of these are great reasons to take Watford against a struggling Newcastle United team that is not playing for much right now. I will take Watford against the spread, as it holds the most value.
