Burnley vs Manchester City
English Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley.
A lot of eyes will be pointed at Turf Moor this Wednesday. Burnley welcomes Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City who suffered shocking 2-5 loss at home ground to Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.
We are about to see how Citizens are going to react and if they are using mixed up lineup once again for Carabao Cup matches. Players like Harwood Bellis, Adrian Bernabe and Liam Delap were usually given chance during mid-week appearances.
Burnley had an awful start to the new football season, having lost all EPL duels so far. Man City are big favorites for the win at 1.33 odds.

The Citizens demolished Burnley in the most recent h2h meeting in Manchester 5-0 FT.
Burnley vs Manchester City Prediction
The new season in Premier League might be fatal for Burnley FC and all good things this club accomplished in the last couple of seasons. We shouldn’t forget they played in Europa League a couple of years ago thanks to great results in the EPL.
Situation in the opening weeks is far from being stable. Clarets were easily defeated at Leicester City 2-4 FT, followed with a bit surprising 0-1 home loss to Southampton last Saturday.
Sean Dyche is not having headaches when it comes to this competition though. Burnley reached the last 16 with great performance and win over Millwall last Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola is not going to be under huge pressure here despite the horrible loss to Leicester. He is surely going to rest a big number of players from the main roster.
It looked like they had control in that match after an early beauty from Riyah Mahrez. Man City’s back line had one of the worst appearances in the last couple of years on Sunday, conceding three penalties.
We are expecting Citizens to bounce back, win this match and even keep a clean sheet. The value is really good for this betting option, as well as for Man City to win both halves against not so creative Clarets.
