Burnley vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 12th May 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Arsenal needs a miracle to get into the top four of the Premier League this season. In the final match-day of the competition, they need to win, Spurs need to lose, and on top of that, the Gunners need to overcome a Goal Difference of 8 over Tottenham. It’s theoretically possible, practically not so much.
But still, in this season of wonders, where we saw Ajax almost running away with the glory of Champions League, we cannot just write off a miracle on counts of how absurd it is.
Unai Emery and his boys will hope for the best, and target at least a 0-4 win, and hope for Spurs to lose by the same margin or more.

Burnley vs Arsenal Prediction
Arsenal will target utter domination and easy win in this tie. This is the last ray of hope they have to finish in the top four of the league, and thus qualify for the Champions League next season. If not, they will have to opt for the difficult route of the Europa triumph.
The team has a fantastic record against Burnley. Arsenal won the last nine matches in a row and holds a 100% unbeaten record in league ties at this venue. The same would have been a 100% winning record if not for a single draw ten years back. Moreover, while only once has Arsenal failed to find the back of the net at this venue, Burnley failed to do so in the last three appearances at home.
Also, Arsenal scored eight goals in the last two encounters against this team, while keeping five clean sheets from the last eight attempts. Finally, Burnley was winless in 10 of their last 15 matches and lost six of their last ten. With their safety already guaranteed, the team has no incentive to go after the Gunners. Expect a dominating Arsenal win this weekend.
