On December 20, St James' Park (Newcastle) will host the 1/8 final match of the EFL Cup, in which Newcastle will compete with Bournemouth. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.

Newcastle

The club was on its way to relegation a year ago, and, to say the truth, looked hopeless. The combination of the finance of the owners from Saudi Arabia and the outstanding talent of the coach, Eddie Howe, allowed not only to “survive”, but also to rise to the top of the table. The team continues to make progress in this season; moreover, it is “the Magpies” who can claim the title of the main revelation of this tournament. They lost only once and have already got 8 wins in 15 matches. These results give an opportunity to take the 3rd place – only Arsenal and Manchester City are higher. Still, here are a few questions. Firstly, is the team in a good shape after more than a month without practice? And, secondly, is it worth being sprayed on the League Cup? Modest Tranmere Rovers was beaten minimally, and Crystal Palace was knocked out of the tournament only in a penalty shootout.

Bournemouth

The team gained their fame under the rule of Eddie Howe. But after a rather long way, during which the young mentor managed to keep a unique, but poor project in the Premier League, there was a total failure. Only last season gave a success to come back. During this time, “the Cherries” fired the coach and finally decided that O'Neil would continue the job instead of being interim head one. The team was not stable, having both successful and disastrous series, and has got a new owner this week – Demin sold the club to the same Americans who are investing in a professional ice hockey team, the Vegas Golden Knights. Still, it is hard to predict how this fact will affect the performance.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Newcastle has not lost to Bournemouth for 6 games in a row. At the same time, having met again in the Premier League in September, the teams ended the match in a draw.

Predictions

Bookmakers do not expect a real struggle. Newcastle is obviously stronger than the opponent, and it will play at home. We bet that in this match at St. James’ Park, “the Magpies” will be able to win with “a -1 goal handicap” (odd: 1.87).
