In the last Saturday match of English Premier League “Burnley”, before the 4th round trapped at the top withemerge of the table, on the home field will accept the leader of the championship and the only team with 9 points, Liverpool.
Last season, the home team lost to the current Champions of Europe in both face-to-face meetings: 1:3 at home and 4:2 away, but last played with them in a 1-1 draw at Anfield. If they can take points from Liverpool on the “Turf Moore”?
- The coefficients and forecast
The team under the leadership of Sean Dica, as well as 9 other participants of the Premier League, in 3 opening matches won, tied and lost, earning 4 points.
Despite this competition, above, “Burnley” in the standings was only “Manchester United”, which today will play against the “Southampton” on the road and could climb into the top four, is due to the difference of scored and missed goals: the team of Dica is 5 against 3.
Now, however, “Burgundy” will play one of the most difficult matches of the season against one of the best teams of the championship, where they lost 8 out of 10 previous head-to-heads, winning only once: in August of 2016 on the “Turf Moore”.
In the past season “Burnley” for some time there was a problem with the defense, and with the performance, but in this campaign, both problems are tangible: the home side have scored in all 4 games of the season, including the lost “Sunderland” with the score 1:3 match of the League Cup and conceded in 3 of them.
Thus in 6 of the previous 7 games with his participation “Burgundy” scored first. Remarkably, similar results were and in their meetings with “red”: in 5 of 6 last confrontation that they had opened the scoring.
The Liverpool team has not lost any of their previous 11 games in all competitions and have won the last 4 at the start of the new season, but instead of a match in the League Cup, they fought for the UEFA super Cup with Chelsea.
Despite the fact that last season Liverpool lost only once and conceded only 22 goals in 38 rounds, he was allowed to score each of the previous 6 opponents, including in the Premier League.
Besides the fact that the goals of both teams took place just in the last 6 matches of Jurgen Klopp’s wards, she had been correct in the previous 5 meetings with Burnley’s, and 4 of their last 5 encounters with them ended with at least 3 goals and 9 out of 10 matches, Liverpool to Saturday.
But will not prevent goals from the hosts put the guests own new record of winning 13 consecutive League matches? Judging by the odds, no.
The coefficients and forecast
Liverpool will come to Burnley, but even there, are considered favorites to win:
6.9–9.9: victory “Burnley”;
1.3–1.4: victory to Liverpool.
The goals of both teams are often the outcome just matches the participants of the fight, and in their meetings, but odds on it is still high enough. But they definitely crossed over to 2.0, you need to combine them with double outcome. Of course, in favor of “Liverpool”.
