Worth Mentioning

Newcastle and Burnley last met in February, but there is not much to be said about the match as it ended in a boring goalless draw. The teams have met eight times in total with all eight taking place inside the last decade. Only one of those games was won by the visiting sides. Usually those H2H clashes are low-scoring affairs, with each side managing to score more than two goals only on a separate occasion when they finished in 3:3 draw. That was the only case when Burnley have scored more than a single goal against Newcastle. Just one of the last five encounters produced over 2,5 goals, while two witnessed goals at both ends.
