Burnley vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).

Burnley lost two games in a row but made a comeback in the league with a win last time out. The host is at the 15th spot on the table picking up 19 points from 5 wins and 4 draws in their 18 league appearances this season. The unexpected 0-1 win on the road against Liverpool last time out was only their second win in the recent five PL fixtures in their schedule.

Aston Villa comes into the game with a similar trait in their form. They also lost two games in a row earlier, only to win their previous encounter in the campaign. They will visit on the back of a 2-0 win at home against the likes of Newcastle United in their last league clash. The away team is ten points ahead of the host with a game in hand from 9 wins and 2 draws.

  • The away team has lost none of their recent three meetings.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the last five fixtures.

Burnley vs Aston Villa Prediction

The ten-point lead on the table over the host suggests that Aston Villa has what it takes to get the bragging rights from the upcoming clash at Turf Moor. Burnley has lost three of their recent five fixtures and had only one win in the last three matches.

It has to be noted that the win came against the reigning champions ending the latter’s nine-game unbeaten run at Anfield this season. But just a win cannot make it easy for the host against another stronger opponent like Aston Villa.

The away team has lost none of their recent three visits to Burnley and has lost only twice to the latter in ten h2h meetings since 2004. Their overall performance in the league this term is better than the home team’s form in the table.

Based on these stats, we can expect a goal from both sides in ninety minutes. The last three h2h clashes hosted by Burnley have seen both teams scoring in each. Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns in the encounter.

The away win in full-time will probably be the ideal choice of the two teams. So, the full-time win for Aston Villa at 2.00 odds will serve the purpose in the clash for the punters.
