Burnley will fight to the end
Burnley go last in the APL, although there is hope for the substitute matches, they are 2-3 compared to their rivals, and the gap from the 17th line is only three points… The team last played back on January 2 when they lost 1-3 away to Leeds. Since then, the club has often postponed meetings due to the coronavirus. Coach Sean Dyche is trying to keep the team afloat, and it is thanks to him that Burnley are still in the elite. Two players will definitely not play in this match, with another five players in doubt as they could remain in quarantine.
Hornets struggling to stay in the elite
Watford are still 17th, but cannot feel safe as the gap from last place is only 3 points. In the last round, the Hornets narrowly escaped an away defeat against another direct rival Newcastle, tying the score in the 88th minute, 1-1. The team managed to break their streak of six straight defeats. Ten players will miss this encounter, mainly due to injuries, with some of them away at the Africa Cup.
The last time the rivals crossed paths was the season before last, then Burnley won both games 1-0 and 3-0 before Watford left the elite.
This will be a tough battle as the direct rivals for survival meet. Given the low performance of the teams, the main bet will be on the defence, because it will be very difficult to win back. We expect interesting football and suggest to bet on the total of less than 2.5 goals scored.
