Worth mentioning: Newcastle are experiencing difficulties at the back and are without a clean sheet in their last five games, while their next opponents Cardiff need to improve their attacking play, as they have scored just a single goal in their last five outings. Scoring goals is also not easy for the Magpies, as they have found the back of the net only on 2 occasions out of the last 5 home games, drawing blanks in three of the games. None of Cardiff last three visits produced over 2,5 goals or saw both teams scoring with a total of 2 goals in these games.
