Tuesday will be devoted to cup battles, but there will also be one meeting on the day in the AFL. Here is our prediction for Burnley v Leicester. Full statistics and all current odds can be found at 1xbet V.93.
Burnley give fans hope
A few rounds ago, few people believed in Burnley, the club was at the bottom of the standings and the reserve games did not inspire hope. Now the situation has improved considerably as they managed to get 7 points in three games, allowing them to climb up to 18th place. The club is still in the relegation zone, however, only a point away from the coveted 17th place, in addition, there are still spare games compared to some competitors. In the last round, Burnley shared points away with Crystal Palace, 1-1. The club has two personnel losses ahead of this battle.
Foxes have prolonged their losing streak
Leicester are seriously frustrating this season, with the Foxes sitting only 13th in the standings. The Foxes were expected, at the very least, to fight for the European Cup, but that hasn’t happened. The team is unbeaten in five league games in a row, picking up just two points during that stretch. In the last round, they lost away to Wolverhampton 1-2. Leicester can still win the Conference League, allowing them to play in the Europa League. The Foxes beat Randers away 3-1 this week, allowing them to qualify for the 1/8 finals of the tournament. Six players will miss this meeting due to injury.
In the first round the rivals gave a fun match, Jamie Vardy scored three goals, though one of them in his own goal. Burnley even scored in the 90+5th minute, but the goal was cancelled out after video review – 2-2 in the end.
Based on tournament motivation, a win here is needed more for the hosts, although Leicester is slightly higher in class. The bookmakers did not take the risk to single out a clear favourite, this decision looks justified. We expect the teams to play for three results, and we’ll take our chances on 1X – the home team will not lose.
