Newcastle United vs Anji Makhachkala Live Streaming Europa League
Newcastle United will look to build on the goalless draw in Russia against Anzhi Makhachkala as the English Premier League side look to progress into the quarterfinals of the Europa League.
The Magpies were impressive in a 0-0 draw against the big-spending Russians, and Alan Pardew will be desperate to see his side come out winners after the 90 minutes have gone at St James' Park.
"It's quite simple: we need to win," Pardew said. "If you're going to go through in a tie, you want to win. You don't want to win on away goals, you've got to win the game. The agenda's in front of us, the emphasis is on us and we'll have 42,000 Geordies in here going mad.
"They have had experience of playing against Premier League opposition this year, at Liverpool -- they lost 1-0 -- and I think this game will be tougher for them. I spoke to (Liverpool manager) Brendan Rodgers about the two fixtures that they had.
"Of course I'm not going to disclose the ins and outs of what we both felt tactically might be the answer but he was very complimentary of their ability and their players. He gave me a couple of little warnings and a couple of pieces he thought we could benefit from -- no more than that.
"We've also done an analytical study of their games. We watched and analysed their game on Sunday so we know all we need to know about the opposition. That doesn't mean to say we can stop them -- they've got some outstanding players and one of the best managers in the last two or three decades in charge so it's a tough agenda for us, make no mistake."
Newcastle will, however, be without the influential Hatem Ben Arfa, while January signings Yoan Gouffran and Mathieu Debuchy are ineligible.
