Just a few weeks ago Newcastle hosting Spurs on the final day of the season looked like a campaign-defining fixture for both teams. The North East outfit were looking to secure narrow Premier League safety after a managerial change and a long, long season, while Spurs were hunting down everyone’s ‘second team’, Leicester in the race for the title.
But, as is the way with football, lots can change in a short space of time, so we now look towards St James Park in the knowledge that Newcastle have been relegated and Spurs cannot win the league.
However, the good folks at Papa John’s have made sure this is a game that is still worth paying close attention to with the lure of discount pizza… Yep, you read that right. Papa John’s are giving 50% off orders for those who back either side to score two or more goals in their last game of the season as one of their ‘Big Match Specials’ offers. All you have to do is sign up for FREE, pick the Magpies or Lilywhites and wait for the goals to come.
In terms of form, Spurs are the side to back, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men having netted two or more goals on a whopping 20 occasions out of 37, with three of those having come in their last five games. Meanwhile Newcastle’s form has picked up of late, with a ‘Score Twice, Half Price’ return of two in their last five matches.
