Burnley vs Leicester Prediction & Betting tips
At Turf Moor this weekend is just Premier League football on the program. Both Burnley and Leicester City are not in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup and can therefore play in a competitive setting on Saturday afternoon.
At Burnley they are by no means certain about body preservation. The Clarets are currently above the relegation line in the Premier League and Burnley will stay there anyway during the international break. That’s because Cardiff City, the club under Burnley, has no Premier League obligations this weekend and therefore Burnley will keep at least two points ahead of the PhD student. It also means that Burnley can increase the pressure on Cardiff City this weekend by simply grabbing three points if Leicester City is the opponent on Turf Moor. However, the reality is that Burnley has not played well in recent weeks and that The Clarets has lost their last three games.
After the defeats against competitors Newcastle United (2-0) and Crystal Palace (1-3), Burnley had to surrender to Liverpool in the previous round. At Anfield, The Clarets lost 4-2 to Liverpool, who took the lead early in the game with a goal from Ashley Westwood. Burnley only made the second goal in extra time and after the opening goal, The Clarets had a hard time with Liverpool. Incidentally, it was the tenth time this season that Sean Dyche’s Burnley gave a head start and that is where the problem lies with The Clarets.
Leicester City has eight points more than Burnley and belongs to the Premier League subtop. The Foxes are at the bottom of the left row after thirty games and that is not so bad. Still, more was expected from The Foxes, which is why Claude Puel was also fired at Leicester City last month. With Brendan Rodgers, Leicester hopes to give the season some luster but the Northern Irishman has little to gain with The Foxes. He would prefer to end up as “best of the rest” with Leicester City, only that assignment is not feasible for Leicester. The Foxes will focus on a place at the bottom in the left-hand row and at the same time Rodgers can already think about next season.
Rodgers was with Fulham for the second time on the bank at Leicester City last weekend and Rodgers recorded his first victory against The Cottagers. At the King Power Stadium, Leicester City was a lot better than Fulham and The Foxes completely won 3-1 from the tradition club from London. The big man on the side of Leicester City was Jamie Vardy who gave the assist on the 0-1 of Youri Tielemans and the English striker gave Leicester the victory in the end of the game by hitting twice. He scored his 100th goal against Fulham in the shirt of Leicester City and with that he is in a row with Leicester City legends such as Gary Lineker, Arthur Chandler and Arthur Rowley.
