Newcastle United vs Leeds – Predictions:
Both the managers are on the verge of getting kicked out of the club very soon. One of them fails to deliver in their next game, which means they will have to find a new job. Steve Bruce has confirmed that he has known enough of Newcastle, and he is confident that they will not get relegated. Leeds’ manager Marcelo Bielsa is in an unpleasant position. He is getting pressure from inside and outside of the club. His key defenders are injured, and the fans have no faith in him. If this goes on, then Bielsa is the one who is likely to leave before Bruce. According to the study, Newcastle has more chances to win the weekend’s match against Leeds.
