Newcastle, Celtic & Napoli Can Make Sunday Super


Today’s Super Sunday match come from St James’ Park where the battle for a top four finish and a place in the Champions League takes centre stage.

The match is repeat of the League Cup final in which Manchester United claimed the season’s first piece of silverware with a 2-0 win. Newcastle were at a bit of a low ebb ahead of that one whilst the Red Devils’ tails were up following a win over Barcelona, but things have changed a little since then.

The Toon have won their last two and starting to look themselves again whilst Erik ten Hag’s men have failed to score in their last two Premier League matches, including that 7-0 humiliation at Anfield. They have enjoyed Europa League and FA Cup success in that time though but progress against Fulham coincided with a self-inflicted implosion by the Cottagers.

Marcus Rashford is a doubt for the visitors and the 27-goal striker would be a big miss at the top end of the pitch.

Joelinton returns for the Magpies following suspension and the Brazilian is the joint most-carded player in the league, picking up 10 cards in 30 appearances so far. He’s 5/2 to mark his return with another yellow.

There’s a lot at stake for both clubs but Newcastle are in better shape and could just shade this one at 13/10.

Celtic‘s lead at the top of the Premiership was cut to six points again yesterday but the Hoops have responded every time Rangers have dared apply any pressure when playing before them. Today’s lunchtime kick-off is at Ross County who are a huge 18/1 to end Celtic’s domestic unbeaten run which stretches back to the middle of September.

Ross County have scored in four of Celtic’s last five visits to Dingwall and although Celtic boast the best clean sheet record in the league they’ve still conceded in eight of 14 away from home. The way the Bhoys are scoring goals at the other end they can afford to lose a goal and still win comfortably. They’ve conceded in six of their last eight but still managed to win by two or more in seven of those.

So a BetBuilder which includes a Celtic win, BTTS and more than three goals appeals at 5/2.

At the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona league leaders Napoli entertain AC Milan. Luciano Spalletti’s side have been the story of the season in Europe, opening up a 19 point lead in Serie A and forging their way to the quarter finals of the Champions League, where they’ll play tonight’s opponents twice again before the month is out.

Tonight’s hosts are surely only weeks away from securing the Scudetto and look attractive at 4/5 to move a  step closer with three points this evening. Milan are winless in four, although the 0-0 draw at Spurs was enough to see them progress in the Champions League, and have only scored eight goals in their last nine outings.

Unlike Napoli who have scored 2 or more in 12 of their last 13. If the 4/5 on the home win isn’t enough for you boost the odds to 23/20 by adding two goals for Napoli too.
