Burnley vs Sheffield Utd Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Burnley vs Sheffield Utd will be a huge match as both sides are in danger of getting relegated this season. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
We have two of the three weakest teams in the league this season. Burnley and Sheffield Utd have the two weakest attacks in the league but they also have the two weakest defenses too. This makes us believe that there is a good chance that they will score goals in this match. Both sides are in desperate need to win this fixture. Moreover, despite the huge number of defeats, both sides have been scoring more goals lately. Burnley scored in 3 out of the last 5 fixtures. Sheffield scored in four out of five games in the past month.
Match Result Prediction: Burnley to Win
Any pick for this match would be a huge gamble. We have the two weakest teams in the league as Everton got a points deduction and we shouldn't count them here. We believe that Burnley will never get a better chance to win at home and they are the only team in the league without a home win to date. At the same time, Sheffield are the only side without a win on the road at this stage in the season. Both sides have equal chances to win here but we believe in the slight home advantage in this particular case.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Burnley
It would be shocking if this game is not extremely close and competitive. This is a must-win for both sides as Luton won in the previous round and are already 4 points above the relegation zone. Burnley and Sheffield have to start winning games or they will be out of the league by the middle of the season. When we compare the Burnley vs Sheffield Utd line ups, it is hard to determine which side is stronger here. Yes, Burnley have the more expensive squad but their performances have not been better.
Burnley vs Sheffield Utd Team Previews
Burnley have not won a match in seven consecutive fixtures in all competitions. Their attack has been scoring goals here and there but they concede a minimum of 2 goals per game. It happened in 8 of their last 10 games. They are fortunate not to have almost any injuries right now. Foster, Cork, and Muric will potentially miss this match but that's it. This is their best chance to win points at home this season. As mentioned above, Burnley are the only team in the entire Premier League without a win at home. Their goal difference is 5:20 and they lost every single one of their seven home matches this season.
Sheffield Utd Preview
Sheffield have not been better and the worse part is that they have a bunch of missing players right now. Basham, Brewster, Davies, Egan, Jebbison, and Norrington-Davies have all been confirmed out for this match and this will force the manager to make solid rotations. Like their opponents, Sheffield have a single win in the last ten fixtures and typically concede 2+ goals per game too. They have a similar case to Burnley but on the road. Sheffield have not won on the road and are the only team in the Premier League. Their goal difference is 4:15 away and have five defeats in six matches.
