Burnley is all set to play hosts to Southampton in a mid-week clash in the ongoing season of the English Premier League.
The match was originally scheduled to be played in matchweek 30 but had to be postponed due to the visitor’s FA Cup quarterfinal fixture. Now, with two back-to-back games at home, Burnley has a great chance of collecting some points to try and get itself out of the bottom 3. This will be Burnley's second game after the sacking of its long-time coach Sean Dyche, due to a string of unfavorable results.
After Mike Jackson took over as the caretaker coach, Burnley played against West Ham and was able to hold the European glory chasing team to a 1-1 draw. With this point, Burnley now trails Everton by 3 points and are within the relegation zone with 25 points.
Southampton managed to break its 5-game winless streak in its latest outing, where it beat Champions League hopefuls, Arsenal. The match’s lone goal was scored by Saints’ center-back Jan Bednarek, and Arsenal wasn’t able to get through an inspired Fraser Forster of Southampton for the entire duration of the game. As a result of these 3 points, Southampton is at the 12th spot, in a crowded middle third of the table.
A win in this game will help Southampton jump 3 spots, and move to 9th place, overtaking Leicester City.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Burnley F. C. Vs Southampton F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Turf Moor Stadium, Burnley, on 21st April 2022.
The home team has quite a few selection issues. Ashley Westwood suffered from an ankle injury in the last game and is likely to miss the next few weeks. Erik Pieters, skipper Ben Mee as well as Johann Berg Gudmundsson are also likely to miss out. As for the visitors, the only absentee is likely to be goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, who is suffering from a hamstring injury. Coach Hasenhuttl is likely to start with a 4-4-2 formation for this game.
With both the teams pretty evenly matched on paper and in good form, we reckon that neither of them enjoys an advantage in this game.
Bet on a draw.
3 of the last 4 head to head games between the two clubs have seen both the teams score at least once. 6 of the last 7 away games for Southampton, and 2 of the last 3 games for Burnley too have seen similar results. We therefore recommend betting on both teams to score in this match as well.
