Newport vs Derby – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Derby have been toppled just once in their last eight games ahead of their cross-border trip to play Newport in the FA Cup on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Derby to Win
Derby have been beaten just once in their last eight assignments and they showed a ruthless side to their character when they thumped non-league Torquay 5-0 in the previous round. League Two’s Newport are a slight step up in quality from that opponent, though Derby should still have the upper hand in terms of class at Rodney Parade on Sunday. County have lost three of their last four assignments in all competitions and they could be worth opposing again against the Rams this weekend.
Both Teams to Score
While we expected Newport to eventually come unstuck against their higher-calibre opponents on Sunday, the Exiles’ record of notching in seven of their last eight home games suggests they could land a consolation blow at Rodney Parade. Derby have shipped goals in five of their last eight contests on the road and a clean sheet could be hard to secure in Wales in what should be a white-hot atmosphere. With those factors in mind, a stake on both teams to score could be an avenue to explore.
