Prediction: Burnley vs Leicester City, 15 January 2022
Prediction: The meeting between Burnley vs Leicester City will take place on January 15th. Let’s look at the details and decide the best bet.
The 22nd round will see a clash between the teams from Leicester and Burnley. The match will be played at Turf Moor Stadium, Burnley.
H2H STATS & PREVIOUS RESULTS
The teams worked out their relationship two times last year. Both confrontations resulted in positive draws, 1:2 and 2:2. Not to be overlooked is the fact that confrontations are often held with a combined total of 2.5.
Burnley attempts to win every match by capturing points, but the club has not been able to satisfy the fans with points. The maroons have lost three straight matches – 1:3 against Leeds and Man United, 162 against Huddersfield in 1/32 FA Cup final. The Cup exit was inevitable, as the Premier League team is currently in the relegation zone. Dyche must direct all resources towards the second half of the season.
LEICESTER CITY REVIEW
There are a few players from Leicester that are not in the access zone. Seungju and Vardy are both playing, while Iheanacho is at the African Cup of Nations. The Foxes reached the FA Cup 1/16 finals despite the lack of strikers. Rodgers’ wards beat Watford in the 1/32 finals with a score 4:1. Four players scored goals simultaneously: Thielemans (Maddison), Barnes, and Albrighton.
They currently rank 10th in Prem, ten points behind Arsenal (4th), with two games remaining over North London club.
Burnley will not have their number one Nick Pope, Ashley Barnes, Josh Brownhill or any other men from Leicester.
Burnley vs Leicester City Head to-to-head
- In 7 previous meetings, the City has only lost to this opponent once.
- Both teams have scored in six of their last six duels.
- Five of these fixtures saw the scoring of three or more goals.
- In five previous visits to the stadium, the visitors won only once.
Burnley vs Leicester City Prediction
After a five-year stint in the top flight, it is clear that Burnley are struggling. They may be relegated from the Championship. Sean Dyche has helped his team get out of similar situations before. It is not possible to repeat the same thing this season.
The club has not lost in any of their four previous league fixtures at home, and has only lost twice to Turf Moor throughout the season. Their opponents are currently on a losing streak of four matches away from home, and have lost six fixtures away.
Given the above, I have backed Burnley using an Asian Handicap.
Only once this season, the hosts scored more in the second half. In addition, the visitors conceded six goals in succession during away fixtures. I have therefore backed the home team to score higher first halves.
Burnley vs Leicester City Betting Tips
- Burnley +0.5 Asian Handicap @ 1.65 odds.
- Home team highest scoring half: 1st half @ 3.60 odds.
