Southampton vs Newcastle: Magpies looking to end trophy drought as they face Carabao semi-final – Stream, TV info, odds | The Sun

NEWCASTLE are up against Southampton in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final.

The Magpies are looking to win their first major trophy since 1969 and have a brilliant opportunity to do so this season.


Eddie Howe's men have been in spectacular form all season, losing just twice in all competitions.

Southampton are rock bottom of the Premier League and lost 4-1 to Newcastle when the two sides played each other at St Mary's in October.

But the Saints were fantastic in beating Manchester City in the quarter-finals to set up their two-legged tie with Newcastle.

Whoever comes out on top will travel to Wembley at the end of February for the final, where they will play Manchester United or Nottingham Forest.

When is Southampton vs Newcastle?

  • Southampton's home clash against Newcastle will take place on Tuesday, January 24.
  • The match will kick off at 8pm UK time.
  • The first leg will be held at St Mary's Stadium.
  • The second leg will be held on Tuesday, January 31.

What channel is it on and can it be live streamed?

  • Southampton vs Newcastle will be shown live on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK.
  • You can live stream the action from the NOW TV or Sky Go apps, both of which are available for download onto your mobile or tablet device.
