Burnley vs Brighton Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 26 July 2020. Scheduled kick-off 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET at the Turf Moor.
While the Clarets missed out on a European spot by a small margin, their season still cannot be termed as a bust. With no superstars in their roster, the team still managed to give some serious competition for the top-six race.
And that was essentially due to their disciplined defense throughout the season, which was ably complemented by an in-form Nick Pope under the sticks.
Another win with a clean sheet would be the perfect end to such a great run for the team, and with the fixture being at home, they definitely will strive to do that.
The Seagulls, on the other hand, have just made sure of their stay in the top flight for one more season, and can finally relax. The result of this fixture won’t affect their future in the competition, and we can definitely expect a drop in intensity.
As such, expect Burnley to be the better team on the pitch this Sunday.

Burnley vs Brighton: Prediction
The Clarets recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Norwich. Meanwhile, Graham Potter’s men were held to a goalless draw at home by Newcastle.
As things stand, Dyche’s men have the upper hand. They are unbeaten in their last seven overall matches, and have conceded a total of three goals in the process. They were also unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 13 overall games, and this sole loss had come against Manchester City.
At home, they are on a run of six unbeaten fixtures, and they have failed to score against just Arsenal and Manchester United since November.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 16 of their preceding 18 overall games, and remained so in 15 of their former 17 road trips.
In addition, the Clarets are unbeaten against this rival since 2013, and have lost against them just once at home since 2002. They have also conceded a total of two goals in the past five h2h fixtures.
Taking into account these observations, expect Burnley to deliver the better performance on the pitch this Sunday.
