BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday afternoon, Wolves and Burnley go head-to-head at Molineux in the Premier League, as the visitors look to not make it four losses in a row!
The home side haven’t had the best of campaigns, but are in a good run of form. They have won their last two games, beating Sheffield United in the last game and officially sending them down to the Championship.
Wolves have struggled without Raul Jiminez in their team and January signing Willian Jose has just one goal to his name. They have scored just five in their last six games and will need to be clinical to score past a well organised Burnley defence.
The game against Burnley is an opportunity for Wolves to potentially put pressure on the teams looking to get into the top half of the table. Burnley will win everything in the air so Wolves are going to have to use the pace in there side to get in behind as this will be their best chance of scoring.
The Clarets will be hoping the game against Wolves is where they put an end to this losing run. They have been beaten in their last three games now, with United winning 3-1 last weekend.
This poor run of form has seen Burnley drop to 17th in the table, six points above the bottom three, a win would all but confirm their survival at this stage, but a loss could give West Brom or Fulham the slightest bit of hope.
Against Wolves, it is never an easy game. They work hard and like to press the ball. Burnley though created some good chances, especially through striker Chris Wood. He can cause defenders issues with his physical presence and Burnley should look to play through hiim on Sunday.
Wolves will continue to be without striker Raul Jimenez, who has a long-term injury. Neto, Jonny, Neves and Marcal also join him on the injury list.
Brady and Barnes are both still out, whilst Pope and Long are doubts.
