Newcastle take on Anzhi on Saturday 14th March, 2013, with kickoff at 20:05. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ESPN .

Unlike the other two English sides left in the Europa League, Newcastle have a relegation battle on their hands on the domestic front rather than any prospect of making it into Europe next year, and as a result this is both a very important game and one they may well choose to sacrifice with the greater good in mind, depending on how Alan Pardew feels.

For me, the newly-bearded Newcastle boss is more likely to try and win this than throw it, such is his character, and I reckon it could be an absolutely cracking game if Anzhi come to play.
