Burnley vs Leicester City: prediction for the English Premier League match
Burnley are set to host Leicester City at Turf Moor on Saturday, January 15. We made predictions for the this Premier League match, which you can find in the article below.
Burnley weren't very successful in the domestic cups this season. They failed to get past the Round of 16 of the League Cup, and lost to Huddersfield (1:2) in their first match of the FA Cup.
In the Premier League, Burnley sit in the relegation zone after the first 17 matches. Sure, they have a few games in hand, but Sean Dyche's chances to keep his team in the Premier League are vanishing with every defeat.
Burnley have earned 11 points from one victory and eight draws. After a goalless draw with West Ham, the Clarets lost to Manchester United (1:3) and Leeds United (1:3).
Barnes is injured and won't be able to help his team today. Collins, McNeil, Taylor, Pieters, Vydra have been placed in COVID protocol.
The current trophy holder of the FA Cup, Leicester City crushed Watford (4:1) in their first match of the 2022 edition of the tournament. In the League Cup, the Foxes reached the quarterfinal stage, but were knocked out by Liverpool.
Leicester have endured a poor Premier League campaign. They have earned 25 points from seven victories and four draws, and currently are occupying the 10th line in the standings. Reaching the European club competition zone would be a miracle.
In the last matches, the Foxes crushed Newcastle (4:0), lost to Man CIty in a high-scoring thriller (3:6) and unexpectedly beat Liverpool (1:0). Leicester have problems on the defensive as they on average concede two goals per game.
Berntrand, Fofana, Evans, Pereira, Soumare, Castagne, Vardy, Daka and Soyuncu have been sidelined through injuries. Mendy, Amartey, Nidid and Iheanacho are unavailable due to their Africa Cup of Nations duties.
This bet won in 3 of the last 6 games of Leicester.
This bet played in 3 of the last 5 games of Burnley.
Both sides scored in the last 5 head-to-head matches.
The visitors will be playing without their leaders, so they are likely to face problems on the offensive. Burnley have an opportunity to earn important points and strengthen their standings. We believe the CLarets will be able to capitalize on their home advantage and Leicester's problems with the lineup.
