Burnley vs Leeds United
English Carabao Cup, Season 2017/18
Date: Tuesday 19th September 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Turf Moor.
It will be an emotional evening for Chris Wood who will be the main threat for the team whose fans he used to bring into delirium all up until a month ago when he left Elland Road for Turf Moor and Premier League football.
Sean Dyche gave Wood an opportunity to begin the match against Liverpool at Anfield Road from the very first minute instead of Sam Vokes who has been spectacular in the pre-season.
Wood was not on target, but the Tykes managed a massive point against the favourites as they eventually held the Reds to a 1-1 draw thanks to Canadian midfielder Scott Arfield.
Burnley are undefeated in last four matches in all competitions and it will be very hard for Thomas Christiansen and his men to recover from a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Millwall at The Den.
Leeds have been flying high with five consecutive wins which is a streak that still sees them as the top side of the Championship standings after eight rounds of the competition in spite of the mentioned defeat to Millwall.
Burnley vs Leeds United: Head to head
The Peacocks have been much better historically, but Burnley won three and drew one of their last four meetings with Leeds United.
Additionally, three of last four H2H encounters between the two teams saw both of them on target.
Burnley vs Leeds United: Prediction
We believe Vokes will start for the hosts instead of Wood in the League Cup fixture and we see him as a strong-value option at 6/4 to score anytime against a second division outfit.
Moreover, the hosts have dominated the tie in the most recent history and we’ll back Burnley to clinch the victory at 17/20.
