Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Against all odds, Newcastle United failed to beat Oxford United at their St. James’ Park, with the two teams playing out a goalless draw in the original fixture. The Magpies played out yet another goalless draw at the weekend as they shared the spoils with Norwich City in the EPL clash, meaning that they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the replay. Anyhow, a low-scoring affair is once again on the horizon.
Oxford United defeated Blackpool 2-1 in their last league fixture, but you should bear in mind that there have been under 2.5 goals in three of their last five games in all competitions. Since Newcastle United managed to keep three clean sheets in the last four matches, we believe that punters can find value in betting on under 2.5 goals. When the two teams met in the FA CUP in 2017 at the Kassam Stadium Oxford United crushed Newcastle United 3-0.
