On Friday, May 24, 2024, Newcastle United will face the A-League All Stars at Melbourne's Marvel Stadium in a highly anticipated friendly clash.

The match comes just two days after Newcastle's nail-biting victory over Tottenham Hotspur in a penalty shootout in Melbourne. Eddie Howe’s squad will aim to wrap up their post-season tour on a high note against a formidable A-League All-Stars side.

Team Form and Recent Performances

Newcastle United

Newcastle United have shown mixed form in their recent fixtures.

Their latest encounter against Tottenham Hotspur ended in a 1-1 draw, which was resolved by penalties, with Newcastle emerging victorious.

This win follows their Premier League campaign's conclusion just three days prior, highlighting their demanding schedule.

Notably, the youthful side that went up against Spurs performed well, and several key starting Premier League XI players are also expected to rest in the upcoming match against the All-Stars.

A-League All Stars

The A-League All Stars have yet to secure a victory against European opposition in this one-off fixture.

They previously faced Manchester United, Juventus, and Barcelona, suffering defeats each time.

This year, under the guidance of Patrick Kisnorbo, the All-Stars aim to turn their fortunes around.

With a roster featuring experienced international players, they are poised to give Newcastle a run for their money.

Team News and Lineups

A-League All Stars

Patrick Kisnorbo has selected a 21-man squad, including notable players like English defender Scott Wootton and Brazilian centre-back Marcelo.

German midfielder Tolgay Arslan will bring additional strength to the midfield, having joined Melbourne City last year.

Probable Starting XI

Thomas; Grant, Trewin, Marcelo, Garuccio; Arslan, Hollman; Leckie, Kraev, Irankunda; Taggart

Newcastle United

Newcastle’s squad travelling to Australia excludes several key players due to injuries and bans, including Sandro Tonali, Sven Botman, and Joe Willock.

However, promising talents like Garang Kuol, who recently joined from Central Coast Mariners, are expected to feature prominently.

Probable Starting XI

Gillespie; Ashby, Thompson, A. Murphy, Charlton; White, Hernes, De Bolle; J. Murphy, Wilson, Kuol

Prediction

Given the current form and the likely rotation in Newcastle's squad, the A-League All Stars have a chance to leverage their experience and exploit any fatigue in the visiting team.

However, Newcastle’s depth and youthful exuberance might prove decisive.
