Eastern European Test For Newcastle: Newcastle Vs Metalist Kharkiv In Europa League Round Of 32


Newcastle United will play Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv in the Europa League Round of 32. Should the Magpies overcome Kharkiv, a clash against either Russian moneybags Anzhi or German side Hannover awaits.

The draw could have been a lot worse for Alan Pardew’s men, as Tottenham found out when they drew French powerhouses Lyon, but Metalist should not be underestimated by the Toon Army. Unbeaten at home throughout the group stages and with a hostile home behind them, they will fancy their chances if they can continue their impressive home form.

The Geordies will be at home in the first leg and must turn in an impressive performance if they are to set themselves up for victory. Metalist will have noted Newcastle’s poor away form and will not be ready to roll over for the Magpies.

Kharkiv will travel to Tyneside on February 14th for a Valentine’s Day showdown, before the return leg one week later. The Round of 16 will commence on March 7th and should Newcastle make it there, they will be travelling first. Russia or Germany would be the destination, depending on who triumphs in the Anzhi vs. Hannover clash.

Anzhi will be favourites for the tie, but Luciano Spalletti’s men will have to be on form if they are to beat Hannover, who have former Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf in their ranks. Anzhi seen off Liverpool in the group stages thanks to Ivory Coast striker Lacina Traore’s goal and his impressive 6’8” frame will have to be monitored closely by whoever he faces.
