Newcastle v Southampton EFL Cup Prediction – Preview
Newcastle United F.C.
Newcastle United narrowly won the first leg of the EFL Cup to get a 1-0 aggregate goal lead. The Magpies got their breakthrough in the 73rd minute when Alexander Isak raced towards the goal and cut back for Joelinton, who finished it home. Manager Eddie Howe commented that the win was “tight” but “well-deserved”. As they try to make their first major cup final appearance since the 1999 FA Cup where they lost to Manchester United, could Newcastle seal the deal once and for all?
Southampton suffered a heartbreaker as they dropped their EFL Cup Semi-final first leg to Newcastle on the narrowest of margins. After the restart, the Saints were level with the Magpies, as Adam Armstrong had the final touch in a scramble near the goal. However, VAR revealed that the ball hit his hand before touching his leg. Later on, Gavin Bazunu could only watch while Joelinton struck past him, and Duje Caleta-Car was sent off after a second yellow card in the 86th minute. Manager Nathan Jones was disappointed with the result, but hailed Newcastle as the most powerful team in the Premier League. Even with an injury depleted lineup, could they turn around their predicament in a tough away leg?
