Newcastle United v Mainz live stream: Magpies prepare for final friendly in Austria amid protests from German club fans

Newcastle’s time in Austria is coming to an end, but first they will face Bundesliga side Mainz, in their third pre-season friendly.

The Magpies have won both of their pre-season games so far but this should prove to be a step up for Eddie Howe’s men.


Newcastle comfortably beat 1860 Munich 3-0 on Friday

Newcastle beat Gateshead 5-1 before a strong second-half performance with goals from Joe Willock, Sean Longstaff and Bruno Guimaraes sealing a victory against 1860 Munich.

But that game was marred by complaints from some of the Mainz fans, who wanted the game canceled due to the Magpies’ links to Saudi Arabia.

The German club refused to postpone the match, however, it was suggested there could be protests during the game.

After two easier fixtures, it will be a good chance for Howe to assess exactly where his side are at ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Newcastle v Mainz: what has been said?

Howe on the transfer market: “There is nothing to report and we are still working very hard behind the scenes to try to improve the team.

“We are keen to strengthen some areas of the team. It remains to be seen if we can get a deal done. It’s a tough window, a tough market, high prices and very limited availability. I’m sure we can, hopefully land a player who can make a difference for us.

“You have to be adaptable because if you don’t find the right player, I might have to look for other positions. We are looking for quality players who will make the group better, whatever their position. »
