Newcastle are yet to concede a goal in the Europa League group stage but that run looks set to come to an end in Belgium as the Magpies tackle Club Brugge. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Alan Pardew’s charges will taste defeat in the Jan Breydel Stadium and indeed despite being Skybet’s 2/1 outsiders, the resilient visitors look decent value at 5/2 with Betfred to collect a point.
Both of Newcastle’s away matches in the competition this term have finished all square but with both teams set to score in this match, an outcome Ladbrokes rate at 4/6, a case can be made for a 1-1 scoreline, at 13/2 via Blue Square.
Equally enticing is bet365’s 9/2 for scores to be level at the end of each half and at a slightly skinnier 4/1 courtesy of Skybet is a goal at any time from Sammy Ameobi. The younger brother of Shola came on at Anfield on Sunday and looked a handful and with more game time likely in this contest he might well bag his first European goal.
Draw/Draw in HT/FT betting – 9/2 (bet365)
