Burnley will travel to Elland Road for its first match of the New Year and take on hosts Leeds United as the Premier League 2021-22 Season continues.
Both the teams are in the bottom half of the table, with Leeds at the 16th place with 16 points, having played 18 games so far. The Whites are playing in their second consecutive Premier League season. The team last played on the 18th of December, against Arsenal, a game which it lost 1-4. Since then, it has seen games against Aston Villa and Liverpool getting postponed due to COVID outbreaks.
Burnley is at the 18th spot, in the relegation zone, having scored just 11 points. The team, however, has played only 15 games so far this season and has seen 4 of its games getting postponed due to COVID outbreaks. The latest in that list was the Boxing Day fixture against Everton. Before the Manchester United fixture on the 30th of December, Burnley had a break of close to 20 days, having played its last match against West Ham on the 12th of December, which ended in a draw.
The team will be eager to pick up a few points in order to move out of the relegation zone.
Match prediction and betting tips for Burnley vs Leeds United Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Elland Road Stadium, Leeds, on the 2nd of January, 2022.
The break has come as a blessing in disguise for the Leeds team, as it has allowed the recovery of its players like Bamford, Pascal Struijk, and Daniel James. Leeds has struggled in absence of its star player Patrick Bamford, who has played just 6 games this season. Leeds has won just once in its last 5 games, and lost thrice, including a humiliating 0-7 loss against Manchester City. The team made an entry to the top flight in the last season after a gap of 16 years and will be looking to avoid another agonizing relegation.
Burnley on the other hand had won just once in the season so far but has managed to draw 4 out of the last 5 games it has played. The break has ensured that Sean Dyche also has more or less a complete squad to select from, with only Connor Roberts being unavailable.
With both the teams fighting a relegation scenario, the match promises to be a closely fought one. However, Leeds might come out as the better team in the end, given the strength of its squad on paper, and the home advantage.
Bet on a Leeds United win.
Burnley and Leeds are two teams that have both struggled to get goals this season. They are playing each other in a game that neither of them can really afford to lose and so we also expect them to be a bit more cautious. This usually indicates that the game is going to be low-scoring. We are happy to bet on the 'Under' here.
