Burnley vs Leicester City Betting Tips
Burnley have been in a dreadful run in the Premier League, which has brought them very close to the relegation zone. They’re currently 15th in the table, with only three points more than Aston Villa, the closest team from the danger area. This team needs points as soon as possible. The problem is that they might need to wait a little longer. The reason is that they’re playing with the currently third-best team in the league.
Leicester City have dropped points in the previous round, which made them drop to third place in the table. They still have a chance to leapfrog Manchester City. Of course, if the Sky Blues fail to win against Crystal Palace.
Leicester City lost to Southampton in the previous round, which came as a sort of revenge of the Saints for the 9:0 defeat they suffered to the Foxes in the first half of the season. That defeat now means that Leicester City need to go for a win in this match. They want to get back on the winning track ASAP.
And they definitely look capable of achieving that. The thing with Leicester City is that they have been fantastic at the back. In fact, Liverpool is the only team that’s allowed fewer goals than them so far. And considering that Burnley are among the worst teams when it comes to scoring, Leicester City look destined to keep a clean sheet.
The trouble is that Burnley are also good at the back, so Leicester City will have to work hard to find the net. They did allow 37 goals already, but this team has some amazing defenders. And when they have their moment, it’s very difficult to outsmart them. The good news for Leicester City fans is that they have the antidote – Jamie Vardy.
Vardy is currently the top scorer of the Premier League with 17 goals. But, he still hasn’t scored in 2020. Actually, his last goal happened against Manchester City on the 21st of December 2019. With Rashford breathing by his neck with 14 goals, it’s needless to say that Vardy is super-motivated to score against Burnley.
