The Newcastle United team will challenge the Villarreal team in a Friendly Match in St. James’ Park Stadium, Newcastle upon Tyne on Sunday, August 06, 2023. For streaming coverage of Newcastle United vs Villarreal, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Newcastle will face Villarreal at St.James’ Park on Sunday, 6/8/2023 in the last friendly match before starting the new season in the Premier League and La Liga. This will be an opportunity for both teams to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, as well as find a balance between the back line and the front line.
Newcastle had an impressive summer with very positive results. They are unbeaten in their last 10 matches, including 3 matches in the Premier League Summer Series. They showed a steely mentality when they managed to equalize the scores in 2 matches and win in the other after falling behind Aston Villa, Chelsea and Brighton.
One player who has shone for Newcastle is striker Elliot Anderson, who has scored 3 goals in his last 3 games for the Magpies. He has a great chance to score the first goal against Villarreal according to the opinion of several top football sites. He will also have the support of his attacking partners Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron.
On the other hand, Villarreal is not well prepared for this visit to England. They lost 3, won 1 and drew 1 in the last 5 friendly matches. They have conceded up to 13 goals to less strong opponents such as St.Gallen, Hannover, Sporting Lisbon or Feyenoord.
Villarreal’s back line looked fragile and difficult to repair in a short time. They will face a big challenge from a sharp and passionate Newcastle front line. Meanwhile, Villarreal’s attack line is also not very impressive, scoring only 5 goals in the last 5 matches.
However, there is one factor that may have worked in Villarreal’s favor as the encounter with Newcastle only took place after the friendly with Fiorentina just 24 hours earlier. Newcastle may use reserve players to face La Liga opponents, so they are not exhausted for the new season.
This match is predicted to be fierce and exciting, with many goal opportunities from both teams. In the last 10 matches of Newcastle and Villarreal respectively, there has been at least 1 goal in the first half. So it is very likely that this match will have at least 1 goal in the first 45 minutes.
In addition, both teams also have the ability to score goals in every match. Newcastle scored in 8 of the last 10 matches, while Villarreal also scored in 8 of the last 10 matches. So most likely both teams will play it out in this match.
