BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
Burnley and Brentford go head to head this weekend, with the home side still in the bottom three of the Premier League.
Burnley picked up a valuable point in their last game. They drew 2-2 at home to Southampton which isn’t a bad result as they are now three points away from safety. New signing Maxwell Cornet scored both the goals for Dyches side.
Burnley being in the Premier League is a huge achievement. This is their sixth consecutive season and Dyche will just want his side to stay up this season. They are a physical side who are tough to beat and this is what has kept them up season after season.
We expect it to be a defensive performance against Brentford this weekend, as they are a side who are very good going forward. Burnley though needs to start winning some games and pick up more points at home.
After a good start to life in the Premier League, it’s now two losses in their last two games for Brentford. They were beaten 2-1 in their last game against Leicester, where they created some good chances and were beaten by a fantastic goal from Tielemans.
Brentford have surprised a lot of people with how they have taken to life in the Premier League. If they stay up, it’ll be a good season but with what they have shown so far, they should have no worries about being in the top flight next season.
The visitors will approach this game as they have all this season and take the game to Burnley. A win away at Burnley is always difficult, but if they can get three points, they might push into the top half of the table!
Stephens is out for Burnley with Mee a doubt.
Wissa, Janelt, Baptiste, Sorensen and Dasilva are all missing for the hosts.
We fancy this one to end all square. Turf Moor is a tough place to go and we can’t see much separating the two sides.
