our main tip:
Goal Over 2.5

Manchester City vs Newcastle United 08.07.2020

Man City were frustrated and left with a bitter taste in mouth in the 1-0 defeat at Southampton at the weekend, despite enjoying well over 70% of the possession and wasting a host of chances. Pep was not pleased at all with that display and we can expect to see a response here. Newcastle on their part have been really good since the restart and have been playing some free-flowing football that has brought in goals. With no relegation to worry about, we can expect them to be more adventurous here and that makes this game to be likely to be a high scoring one that will probably end in a City rout. We are therefore going with Goal Over 2.5 as our betting tip here.
