Newcastle United

How Rafa Benitez needs to set Newcastle up to batter Porto later today

Newcastle United will be desperate to secure a European place in the next campaign having drafted in a few players this summer. Although, this will all depend on how they perform in the remaining pre-season games that the club have scheduled.

The Magpies managed to snatch a late draw against Hull City recently, but Rafa Benitez will be expecting much more from his players in matches to come. Indeed, a number of the club’s youngsters are yet to really make a name for themselves during pre-season, so the next couple of games will be vital.

Next up for Newcastle United is a trip to Portugal to face FC Porto. Supporters would love nothing more than to see their side secure a victory against a tough Porto side, as this would put them in a great position as they head into the new campaign.
