Burnley vs Watford: Tuesday 18th January – 7:30pm, BT Sport 2

predictions logo accent sport preview


This is a massive game for both clubs.

The relegation battle is shaping up into a 3 from 4 contest and so the games between the bottom 4 sides take on enormous significance. Burnley have just 1 win all season and have picked up just 3 points from their last 6 games and the sale of Chris Wood to relegation rivals Newcastle won’t have done anything for their confidence.

Watford don’t fare much better on form, and they have lost their last 7 games in a row, so it is hard to have much confidence over either team, but Claudio Ranieri’s team are entertaining at least and as their 4-1 demolition of Manchester Utd showed, they can put things together.

The pressure on Burnley to get a result from somewhere is mounting and that could prove telling at home, so the value in the market is to look for Watford to take advantage of those nerves. The loss of Chris Wood seriously dents the Burnley frontline, though neither team is clinical in front of goal, so the best play looks to be a Watford win and under 2.5 goals.
