The actions of the best soccer league in the world, the Premier League, continue this weekend when we have a calendar full of great games that correspond to matchday 6 of the 2023/24 season.
All teams know how important it is to get points at the start of the season, as it is the only way to cope with the dominance and power of Manchester City. However, this does not mean that Pep Guardiola’s team is unbeatable, as they can face difficulties at any time, so the clubs that are most on the lookout will be the ones that can take advantage of the situation. This season, for example, the defending champions are facing an injury crisis that, sooner or later, will affect their performance.
Likewise, big teams must play every game with a lot of determination regardless of their opponents, as some “smaller” rivals could be a stone in the shoe and, of course, could do a lot of damage. One of these “smaller” teams is Newcastle, who wants to straighten its course this Sunday afternoon against Sheffield United.
Sunday, September 24 at 11:30 AM ET in the Bramall Lane Stadium
Sheffield United +570
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Sheffield United?
Sheffield United is experiencing a bad promotion to the Premier League, as they have not managed to win after 5 matches. However, they have in their favor that there are many teams in low form.
Currently, the Blades are ranked #17 in the standings with a record of 1 draw and 4 defeats; that is, the team has accumulated only 1 point out of 15 played. On the other hand, it is also worth mentioning that Sheffield is having many offensive problems, as they have scored only 4 goals so far. As a result, the team needs to correct their offense to get out of the ditch of the standings as soon as possible.
The newly promoted come into this matchday after a defeat in their visit to Tottenham with a score of 1-2. In that match, the visitors were very close to their first victory, as Gustavo Hamer’s goal in the 73rd minute was close to clinching the win. However, the Spurs came back with goals from Richarlison at 90+8′ and Dejan Kulusevski at 90+10′.
Why Bet on Newcastle?
On the other hand, we have Newcastle United, a team that has had a very irregular start to the season and needs to find the formula that will lead them to victory as soon as possible.
Currently, the Magpies are ranked #12 in the standings with a record of 2 wins and 3 losses. However, the team has not been playing well lately, and this was demonstrated in their match against AC Milan in the Champions League Group Stage.
Although they managed to get 1 point after a 0-0 draw, the team had a really poor performance during the whole match and, undoubtedly, the Italian team did the merits to take the victory. Moreover, the Magpies only had one shot on target, while they had to avoid 25 Milan approaches.
However, in the previous weekend’s match, Newcastle had a very good victory over Brentford with a score of 1-0.
