Though a bit unexpected, Newcastle managed to hold off Anzhi in Russia and did not concede any goals finishing 0-0. The Magpies finished 2nd Group D, recording 2 victories and a draw at home. On top of that, the team has not conceded a goal in 3 consecutive games, and hasn’t lost a home match in 12 games holding a record W8-D4-L0. This is Newcastle’s 5th time in this stage of the tournament, where their last advancement ahead was back in season 2004/05. In season 2006/07 the team lost to AZ Alkmaar with an aggregate score of 2-4. Since matchday 1 to this match, Newcastle has managed to score just 8 goals, making the the team with the lowest amount of goals scored to reach this stage. Their betting odds to win the match are @ 2.50 so a slight favorite according to the books. Considering the low amount Newcastle scores and the clean sheet in 3 games, we believe this match will not see many goals either. Betting tip #1 of course would be Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.61. Though 0-0 in Russia was a good score, it’s a double edged sword as a concede goal here by Newcastle would have a high price. Betting tip #2 would be Both Teams to Score – No @ 1.80, as we believe Newcastle will continue their good performance at home and will keep another clean sheet here.

This is the first time this season, where Anzhi did not manage to win the first leg. The team faced another British team in the group stage, Liverpool, winning the home match with 1-0 and losing on Anfield with the same score. The betting odds for Guus Hiddink’s side to win this match are @ 2.87 so pretty close to those for Newcastle. If the team manages to score at least a goal on English soil, it’s almost certain that they will manage to qualify as Newcastle has managed to score just once in the last 4 home games more than once. In the same time Newcastle has managed to keep a clean sheet in 3 of those games, making Anzhi’s job quite hard. The Russians scored in 3 of the last 4 away games this season, wining none of those. A draw that would see at least goal from each side, will send Anzhi to the next stage of the tournament.
Betting tip #1 for this match would be Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.6, considering the low amount of goals Newcastle scores, and in the same time the low amount of goals the team concedes at home.
Betting tip #2 would be connected to the one above. If Newcastle manages to execute their plan well, we should see only the home side scoring hence Both Teams to Score – No @ 1.80. If however Anzhi scores first, we do not expect the Magpies to be able to answer, giving you profit as well.
