This victory gives an advantage for Newcastle, because the second leg will be held at St James’ Park on Wednesday (1/2) at 03.00 WIB. They now need only a draw to qualify for their first domestic final in 24 years.

In 1998-99, Newcastle managed to advance to the FA Cup final, but had to settle for being runners-up after losing 0-2 to Manchester United, who finally won the treble that season.

Newcastle coach, Eddie Howe did not want to get big head first. He is aware that the results obtained in the first leg were only a slight advantage which could change next week.

“It’s nice to win, that’s our target, but we know that 1-0 is difficult, nothing is certain for the final. We will return to St James’ with the support of our fans,” Howe explained to Sky Sports after the game.
