What time does Newcastle Utd v Atalanta kick off?
The match tonight is being played at St James Park in Newcastle, and has a kick off time of 19:45 on Friday July 29th 2022.
Although Atalanta are coming off a comfortable 4:0 win against Como, they haven’t enjoyed their best run of form recently.
Atalanta have two wins in their last six games, with two draws and two losses.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s men will need to be at their best if they are to defeat Newcastle today; will Josip Ilicic do enough to give them the win?
Atalanta’s recent run of form doesn’t inspire much confidence; they have two wins, two draws and two losses in their last six matches.
It’s worth noting that Newcastle have lost back-to-back games against Benfica and Mainz; however, they’ve enjoyed relatively better form than Atalanta. In fact, the Magpies have seven wins in their last 11 games across all competitions.
Additionally, Newcastle’s most recent losses were away from home; they’ve won seven of their last eight home games, with just one loss in their last nine home games. All things considered, Newcastle should win this match.
Atalanta have been consistent when it comes to finding the net; they scored in six of their last eight games, with four goals scored in their last match alone.
On the other hand, Atalanta have some struggles defensively; as they kept just one clean sheet in their last 12 games in all competitions.
Just like Atalanta, Newcastle United have been finding the net regularly but have also been conceding a few at the back which will be a slight worry for Eddie Howe with just over a week left util the start of the Premier League season.
The Magpies have they registered nine goals in their last five games, whilst allowing four goals in their last two games alone.
Considering the way these teams score and concede, both teams will likely score here.
Finally, we’ll take a look at the over/under goals market. We’ve already established that these teams tend to score and concede goals regularly; and because of this, their recent matches have featured plenty of goals.
Five of Atalanta’s last eight games went above the 2.5 goal mark so tha market makes plenty of appeal. The Serie A outfit have scored three goals scored per game on average in that eight-game stretch.
Also, four of Newcastle’s last six matches saw at least three goals scored; for these reasons, we are predicting a high-scoring game at St James Park as the Toon’s pre season friendly campaign draws to a close.
