On Saturday 21 August in Liverpool at Anfield Stadium Liverpool and Burnley will meet in the second round of the FA Championship . The fight will start at 14:30 Moscow time.
Liverpool Football Club
Klopp’s team finished the last season of the Championship of England in third position. Liverpool are just five points behind the second Manchester United, and Chelsea are ahead by one. But the Liverpool team could be left without the Champions League at the end of the championship. But the team did not lose the last 10 rounds and won 8 matches of them, and drew two of them.
In the current Premier League standings, Liverpool are in third place with 3 points after one game. In the opening round, the Premier League was beaten in the away game by Norwich (3: 0). The Liverpudlians created moments over and over again, dominated the field and, as a result, confidently won. Distinguished in this match: Zhota, Firmino and Salah.
Burnley Football Club
Burnley performed unsuccessfully last season, but retained its residence in the elite English division. The Burnley team finished 17th with 39 points, 9 points ahead of the relegation zone. Burnley’s league ending failed with only two wins in the last nine games and seven defeats.
The new season of the Premier League also did not work out: a home defeat against Brighton, despite the fact that the team from Burnley took the lead already in the second minute of the meeting, thanks to a goal from Tarkovski. But they failed to keep the winning score: within five minutes: at 73 and 78, two goals were conceded and, as a result, an offensive defeat at home.
Burnley will not be able to help in the upcoming match due to injuries: Long and Stevens.
Forecast for the match Liverpool – Burnley
Liverpool and Burnley have had the following results in their last five head-to-head games:
03/10/19 Liverpool 4-2 Burnley;
08/31/19 Burnley 0-3 Liverpool;
11/07/20 Liverpool 1-1 Burnley;
01/22/21 Liverpool 0-1 Burnley
05/19/21 Burnley 0-3 Liverpool.
Liverpool are now in good physical shape and all the team leaders are in the ranks. The team has an excellent attacking line and a reliable, well-functioning defensive play, and this has already begun to bear fruit.
Burnley is not in the best condition and are losing two official matches. The ending of last season, where there were three defeats in a row with zero in the scored goals graph, did not work, and eight were conceded in them.
In this confrontation, Liverpool must beat the disassembled opponent in class with a crushing score. I think the Liverpool attack will work with a bang and we will see them in all their glory. Maybe even one of the hosts will score with a scoring hat-trick.
