The upcoming match is not among the central events of Sunday’s fixture. However, we offer our prediction for the Burnley vs Leeds match, which we hope will help you to place a right bet on the outcome of the match.
After two games played in the Premier League, Sean Deich’s team still has no points. In the first round, Burnley‘s 1-2 defeat at home in their match against Brighton came as a surprise to many. In the second round, in the game against Liverpool, Burnley’s team had almost no chance to improve the standings as there was a defeat again with a score of 0-2. The result of the cup match against Newcastle was a little consolation for the fans of the team — winning the penalty shootout was encouraging.
Leeds will be visiting Burnley as favorites of the upcoming match, even though the team has weak results from the two rounds they have played. In the first round, Marcelo Bielsa’s wards lost with a crushing score of 1-5 to Manchester United. In the second round at home, Leeds United failed to beat Everton. The result of the match was a 2-2 draw which gave the team 1 point. However, Burnley’s guests look preferable this time around. The team is on the rise after making it to the next FA Cup round.
Until now, the teams of Burnley and Leeds United have played 60 times in the official tournament. In 17 matches, the victory was on the side of the Burnley team. In 31 games, Leeds United was stronger. Draws were recorded in 12 matches.
Leeds United still looks more powerful and more focused. In addition, the selection of players among the guests is better than that of their opponents. Therefore, as far as making a prediction for the Burnley vs Leeds United match is concerned, we predict that the guests are the favorite team of the confrontation.
Probable result – the victory of Leeds.
