West Ham have not lost in six straight home games. Can the capital team continue the series in the Premier League match against Newcastle on April 5? Forecasts and bets in this material.
West Ham’s 1-0 victory over fellow underdogs Southampton on Sunday was certainly important. Iron head coach David Moyes cannot underestimate the magnitude of this success, which temporarily steered them away from the immediate clutches of relegation. The Hammers may be facing the toughest finish of all, mainly because they play midweek and weekend soccer through early May, a schedule of games that will become even tighter if they remain in the UEFA Conference League.
Nonetheless, a home game should help bolster their position – the hosts have not lost in five home games in the EPL, their longest streak of the season. In 27 outings, the Londoners have seven wins and six draws, corresponding to 27 points and 14th position.
The home side’s record is in jeopardy, as the Magpies are gaining momentum and will take to the pitch today in fine form. In addition, Newcastle have a streak of three successes in a row, the last of which ended with a dry win over a difficult Manchester United (2-0). The finish lines of the 2002/03 season are gaining momentum, with the Black and Whites looking very impressive away – in their last ten away meetings they have only lost to Manchester City.
In addition, Eddie Howe’s charges have not lost in four consecutive games in London, putting together such a winning streak for the last time in over a decade. In 27 rounds, the team has 13 wins and 11 draws, corresponding to 50 points and third position in the standings.
The English Championship is coming to the finish line, and the schedule is getting tighter and tighter. Teams have no right to relax, and there is no margin for error. We believe that all this will only add to the desire to pay more attention to the defense and not to concede. Most likely, today everything will be decided by 1-2 scored goals, on which we will place our bet.
