Metalist Kharkiv v Newcastle United Football Match – 21.02.2013 – UEFA Europa League Match Preview, Prediction, Information about Squads
Metalist Kharkiv v Newcatsle United football match will be in 21.02.2013 at Kharkiv, Ukraine for UEFA Europa League match. The game will begin at 18:00 with GMT. Metalist Kharkiv didn’t lose to match agaisnt Newcastle United in away at first match. That was what I expected. Both teams couldn’t score any goal whole in 90 minutes. Metalist Kharkiv is a strong team of Ukraine and they have quality squad. They had successful results in Europe in last years. I don’t think it will be too hard for match them. Cleiton Xavier and Jonathan Cristaldo are in form at Metalist Kharkiv. Their only problem is an injury that their goalkeeper Vladimir Disljenkovic has injured and they will be in pitch with their substitute goalkeeper.
Newcastle United is underachieving at England Premier League and they have many injuries at their squad. Ryan Taylor, Hatem Ben Arfa, Dan Gosling and Danny Simpson are injured and they won’t play against Metalist Kharkiv. Another disadvantage of Newcastle United is Ukraine’s climate and Metalist Kharkiv’s pitch. Metalist Kharkiv’s pitch is synthetic turf and Metalist Kharkiv’s players are used to play in such pitch. I don’t think that Newcastle United players can do their best in synthetic pitch and in cold climate of Ukraine.
