Newcastle United vs West Ham United: prediction for the Premier League Week 30

An opening game of the Premier League Week 30 πŸ†

The Hammers have fully recovered after a midseason slump, as they will travel to Newcastle-upon-Tyne in Week 30. Match at St.James’ Park will begin on March 30, at 1:30 PM CET.

Newcastle United

A forgettable campaign in Newcastle-upon-Tyne is coming to its end, as the Magpies do not have much left to play for this season. The Champions League stint was a short one, the knockout competitions left much to be desired and 10th spot in the Premier League is far from the result Newcastle United hoped to achieve in 2024.

While the defense is porous, this attack is still ranked top-5 in terms of goals scored, as Newcastle can be a feisty opponent even at this stage of the season. Especially at home, where they have not lost since the middle of January, when Manchester City secured a β€œ3-2” win in a thrilling comeback finish.

West Ham United

West Ham United looked ready to compete for the Champions League berth in 2023, building on their Conference League-winning campaign, but collapsed in the beginning of 2024, unable to find a win until the end of February.

The March, however, is looking better for the Hammers, as they trounced German side Freiburg β€œ5-0” at home, moving on to face an undefeated Bayer Leverkusen in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. Even back in the EPL, West Ham can still climb the rankings, sitting only three points behind sixth place Manchester United, albeit, with an extra game played.

Prediction ⚽️

West Ham United managed to snatch a point away from Newcastle United in October, scoring late to finish β€œ2-2”, but the Hammers have not beaten the Magpies since 2021.

Sportsbooks think that it is unlikely for that streak to end in Newcastle-upon-Tyne this weekend, but we will side with the road team not losing in this one with 2.02 odds πŸ”₯.
