Newcastle v Southampton live stream: How to watch Carabao Cup semi-final online
Southampton will look to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Newcastle as they look to reach the final of the competition for the second time in seven years.
Back in 2017, the Saints lost 3-2 to Manchester United in the Wembley showpiece and the Red Devils would likely be waiting for them again –having racked up a healthy first-leg lead over Nottingham Forest in the other semi-final – should Nathan Jones’s men successfully come from behind against the Magpies.
The first leg will be a source of frustration for Southampton, as Adam Armstrong had a goal disallowed for the most marginal of handball calls, Duje Caleta-Car was sent off late on for two bookable offences and only the brilliance of Nick Pope producing a couple of world-class saves stopped them scoring in the second half.
It means an away win at St James’ Park is required to turn the tie around and although the odds are stacked against the Premier League’s bottom side as they face one of the division’s high-flyers, their brilliance to beat Manchester City in the quarter-finals will serve as inspiration.
