Dying favorites is almost commonplace in the English league cup. Many teams, especially from the Premier League, rely primarily on youngsters and players from the second guard. Surprisingly, the big surprises in this year’s EFL Cup have not been seen so far. In the round of 16, 13 of the remaining 16 teams come from the Premier League.
This includes Newcastle United, among others. Although the Magpies did not appear in the best line-up in the last round, there was a 7-0 victory over fourth division club Morecambe. In the second round, Newcastle United will now face the next fourth division. The Magpies are guests in Newport’s Rodney Parade.
As the odds comparison of the betting base shows, at Newport against Newcastle according to the odds, the guests are expected to be favorites. For a tip on the Magpies there are currently only odds of 1.45, which is hardly surprising after the show of power in the last round. Whether the next fourth division will come under the wheels of the Newcastle offensive will be revealed on Wednesday evening.
Newport – Statistics & Current Form
Newport dreams of the quarter-finals in the EFL Cup. The fourth division prevailed in the previous rounds against teams like Swansea, Cambridge United, and Watford. As the current form can be seen, the next surprise of the Welsh would not be unrealistic. After all, Newport recently won four competitive games in a row and gained a lot of self-confidence.
No chance against the Magpies?
After two-second division teams (championship) have already been eliminated from the EFL Cup with Watford and Swansea, a Premier League club will now follow with Newcastle United. In contrast to Wednesday’s opponent from the English House of Lords, Newport will compete in the English League Cup with the best cast.
For the first time in the club’s history, Newport County is represented in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup. It remains to be seen whether the cup fairy tale, if it may be said in connection with the English League Cup, will continue against Newcastle, but Welsh coach Michael Flynn has recently been very confident.
Will the strong form in the EFL Cup be supported?
Last weekend, Newport won an away win at Bolton. A total of eight goals were scored in the last four competitive games. If it comes to the latest offensive performances of the Welsh, a goal against a B-Elf from Newcastle United on Wednesday evening would by no means be absurd.
Coach Flynn will not have to complain about any serious failures in the EFL Cup. It is quite possible that the Welshman will start with a similar starting eleven as they did against Bolton on the weekend. If Newport has a surprise against Newcastle, odds beyond the 7.00 mark can be tapped for tip 1.
The probable lineup of Newport:
➤ King – Cooper, Dolan, Demetriou – Shephard, Sheehan, Labbadie, Collins, Haynes – Amond, Abrahams

Newcastle – Statistics & Current Form
Newcastle United couldn’t have finished last weekend in the Premier League better. The Magpies got a surprising point win in the away game against the Spurs thanks to a late goal. In order to avoid the double burden in the secondary EFL Cup, coach Steve Bruce is expected to start the rotary machine.
Victory against Morecambe
Morecambe felt in the last round of the cup that the second guard of the Magpies should not be underestimated. The fourth division was literally overrun by the Magpies offensive and conceded seven goals.
In the English League Cup, Newcastle is represented in the round of 16 for the first time since the 2016/17 season. Previously, the Magpies had to give up three times in a row in the second cup round. In this year’s EFL Cup edition, the Magpies prevailed against Blackburn and Morecambe so far. So far, the clean slate has been preserved in both cup games.
Which players are used?
It is still unclear which starting line-up coach Steve Bruce will bet on in the EFL Cup round of 16. As in the previous round, it will be a mixture of youngsters and reservists. In the round of 32, Bruce had relied on the Brazilian Joelinton for the front. The 24-year-old Brazilian tied a brace in the first half.
It is quite possible that Joelinton will score the next goals in his next cup appearance. At Newport vs. Newcastle are currently waving odds of 2.20 for a bet on a goal by Joelinton.
The probable lineup of Newcastle:
➤ Gillespie – Krafth, Lascelles, Fernandez, Lewis – Murphy, Longstaff, Hayden, Fraser – Carroll, Joelinton

Newcastle United’s favorite role is undisputed on Wednesday night. In the last round of the cup, the Magpies met a fourth division team and literally overran their lower-class opponents. Since an exhausting match against the Spurs was completed last weekend, it remains to be seen how the (second) team will do on Wednesday evening.
Magpies coach Bruce will again rely on a mixture of youngsters and reservists. Newport wants to take advantage of the situation as a big underdog and surprise the Magpies in the local Rodney Parade. Most recently, the fourth division team took four wins in a row, which gave them a lot of confidence.
