Burnely vs Leicester City 31st Jan 2017: EPL Cup Preview and Predictions

Burnley and Leicester City are both in relegations battles this season and as they face off this weekend, it will be a very important for both sides as they battle to stay up to spend another season in the top flight of English football.

Burnley will play host to the reigning champions and that will be a huge advantage for them since this side plays a considerable amount better at home than away from their home stadium. This week they will hope for a lot of the same since getting points here will be very important come the end of the season.

Leicester City have fallen from the heavens and the fairytale of last season seems so far away. That being said, this team is still filled with some very talented players with the likes of King, Vardy and Mahrez still at the club. This week they will be away from the King Power Stadium and that will cost them their home support but I think they are good enough without them and with the pressure on now, I expect the big names to step up and get the team three points.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a really good price on the reigning champions to win this game outright and I am going to take it as my bet for this game. Aside from that, the under 2.5 goals is the other appealing wager since Leicester are away from home and Burnley have struggled to score so a 1-0 or 2-0 win are the two most likely outcomes.

 

Pick:
Leicester City
