The second round of the 2021/22 season of the English Premier League will start on Saturday, 21 August 2021. The game day will open with a match in Liverpool, where Liverpool and Burnley will meet at the Anfield arena. The game will start at 12:30 GMT.
After the surprising results of the games played in the first round, it becomes more and more difficult to predict the result of the next games in the English Championship. Nevertheless, we will try to predict the Liverpool vs Burnley match. We hope that our forecast will correspond to what will happen in reality on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges started the new season with a victory. On the road, Liverpool dealt quite easily with the Premier League rookie, Norwich City. Three unanswered goals decided the outcome of the match in favor of the Merseysiders; no other result could have been expected. In the first round match of the Merseysiders, the opponents were not the strongest in the competition, so it would be surprising if Liverpool did not take three points in the upcoming match.
In the first round of the English Championship of the 2021/22 season, Burnley started with a setback. In a difficult and tense match, Sean Deich’s men lost 1-2 to Brighton at home. This defeat should not be regarded as a failure. Of course, there is little satisfaction in this, nevertheless, Burnley is not the team that will simply distribute points in the next games. The upcoming away match against Liverpool will show the real strength of Burnley.
Until today, in the framework of official tournaments and competitions, the teams of Liverpool and Burnley have met 108 times on the football field. In 48 matches, the victory was on the side of the Merseysiders. Burnley was stronger in 34 games. In 26 matches, the teams dispersed peacefully.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges will be playing at home on Saturday. The class of the game and the selection of players from amongst the hosts will also be more serious. So, based on these factors, we predict that Liverpool will win the match.
Probable result – the victory of Liverpool.
