Newcastle vs Oxford Betting Tips - Oxford have nothing to lose in the FA Cup

Newcastle have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 matches

Newcastle united friendly

Newcastle are the favourites as they host Oxford at St. James' Park in the FA Cup fourth round. The League One club are not expected to trouble the Magpies but can take advantage of Newcastle’s defensive injuries and score.

Newcastle United Form


Newcastle advanced to the FA Cup fourth round after a convincing 4-1 home win against League One club Rochdale. A Rochdale own goal was followed by strikes to Matthew Longstaff, Miguel Almirón and Joelinton before the Magpies conceded a late goal.

Steve Bruce’s side then hosted Chelsea in the English Premier League and won 1-0 thanks to Isaac Hayden’s late winner. Newcastle traveled to Everton for a midweek EPL fixture and drew 2-2 at Goodison Park.
Newcastle looked dead and buried at 2-0 down in added time, but substitute Florian Lejeune came up with two goals in the 93rd and 94th minutes to pull off an unlikely result. Lejeune's goals were Newcastle’s only shots on target in the match.

Oxford United are doing well in League One, currently in the playoff places and six points off the lead. Karl Robinson’s side rebounded from a 3-1 home defeat against Rotherham with two draws.

A 0-0 home draw against Ipswich saw Matty Taylor with the best chances before a 1-1 draw at Gillingham. Tariqe Fosu-Henry scored early but it wasn’t enough for the U's.

Newcastle vs Oxford Match Up


Newcastle have defensive issues with full-backs Jetro Willems, Javier Manquillo, Paul Dummett and DeAndre Yedlin all injured. That means Steve Bruce is playing players out of position which means they are susceptible in the wide defensive areas.

Oxford’s wide attackers Tariqe Fosu-Henry, Nathan Holland,James Henry and Rob Hall will all hope to take advantage. Oxford have nothing to lose in Newcastle with few predicting a positive result for the League One club.
