22-05-23 Daily Football Predictions : Newcastle to make one final UCL push

Betting Tips

When Newcastle United plays Leicester City on Monday night, they will want to get one step closer to securing their spot in the Champions League.

The Magpies want to add the cherry on top to a very successful season, and we are certain that they will approach Leicester with an attack-minded approach.

Juventus will be looking to maintain the second position in the rankings as they take on Empoli in the 36th round of Serie B after a crucial 2-0 victory over Cremonese. The Bianconeri want to win their fourth straight league game, but they must perform well on the pitch. On the other side, the Azzurri performed well to ensure their Serie A survival, so they enter Monday’s match with little motive.

Newcastle vs Leicester City

The Magpies easily defeated Brighton in their Thursday night match, moving one step closer to securing a top-four finish (should Liverpool defeat Aston Villa on Saturday). Newcastle has already qualified for the Champions League for the upcoming season.

On Thursday, Eddie Howe’s team came out of the gate with genuine desire, so it was no surprise when they took the lead thanks to an own goal by Deniz Undav midway through the first half.

 Dan Burn’s header extended their lead shortly before the half, and although Undav made up for it by cutting Newcastle’s lead in half right after, the game was decided by goals from Callum Wilson and Bruno Guimaraes in the dying moments.

Leicester must win this game in order to give themselves a chance on the last day after being soundly outplayed by Liverpool on Monday night, leaving them facing relegation in the face. Depending on how Everton performed on Saturday, even a draw might not be sufficient.

Since Leicester’s players lacked any true fervor or fight, it was obvious from the start that there would only be one victor in the match versus Liverpool. For a squad that many believed to be “too good to fail,” they appeared to be accepting of their fate.

To beat the drop now would need a big mindset shift, and that must begin here at what is already one of the most challenging places to visit, regrettably for Leicester.


In this matchup, two teams at polar opposites of the confidence scale square off. Newcastle is poised to finish in the top four, which would put the Magpies well ahead of schedule, while Leicester, a shell of their former selves, is facing the very real possibility of returning to the Championship for the first time since the 2013–14 campaign.

In front of a devoted St. James’ Park crowd in their final home game of the season, the hosts should run out pretty comfortable winners and secure their place among Europe’s elite. There hasn’t been much to suggest lately that Leicester is capable of starting a survival mission.

The home form of Newcastle has been among the best in the Premier League, and the recent change in Leicester’s away form is encouraging for the home team in this match.

 It’s anticipated that Newcastle will win all three points on Monday night despite Howe’s team having lost a few recent games, having defeated Leicester twice this season without answering and having so much riding on the outcome.

Empoli vs Juventus

Empoli has recently made multiple trips between Serie A and Serie B. However, they placed 14th the previous season and will likely remain there this one as well. With only three matches remaining, they are now in 14th position with 39 points, nine points above the relegation zone.

Empoli had a difficult offensive year, scoring only 32 goals in 35 games. However, recently, they have been productive, scoring six goals in their previous three games.

In the league, Juventus is second with 69 points. Their only objective is to finish in the top four and secure the Champions League next season. Juventus have been a completely different team at home and on the road this season.

 At home, they are the best team in Serie A with 42 points from 18 matches, while on the road, they won only 27 points in 17 games. Juventus will not win any title this season since Sevilla just eliminated them from the Europa League Semi-Finals.


Empoli should be able to play with confidence against Juventus on Monday after the point they earned at Sampdoria last weekend guaranteed their top-flight place for another year. The Old Lady’s participation in the Europa League on Thursday night increased Empoli’s prospects of upsetting the odds against Juventus. This is where they had won three of their past four games.

Juventus’ semi-final match against Sevilla may go into extra time, which would sap their vitality. In this case, back Empoli in the parlay market.

Empoli has recently been a consistent performer in the BTTS category, with action occurring in each of their previous four Serie A games. Juventus, on the other hand, has only managed to keep one clean sheet in four attempts while traveling within Italy. This track record implies they will likely give up again on Monday.

Juventus, though, has only failed to score three times in their past 15 league games, and they possess the talent enough to respond with a goal of their own.
