Burnley vs Peterborough Prediction

Burnley are yet to ensure consistency in their Premier League campaign and are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder. The hosts were on a two-match losing streak when they took on Aston Villa earlier this week and will be hoping for a much more promising run in the FA Cup this season.

Meanwhile, Peterborough booked their berth in the Round of 32 after thrashing three unanswered goals past Dover at home. The visitors were certainly much the better side in that latter matchup, leaving their counterparts struggling to find even a consolation goal.

Be that as it may, the away side have not been faring well since, and have just one win to boast of from their last six games in all competitions. Furthermore, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their past two visits to Turf Moor.

To make matters worse, Peterborough have tasted success just once in their previous ten outings. Taking into account that the visitors are also part of a far less competitive domestic campaign, count on Burnley to be too hot to handle for the away side in this one.

Additionally, there have been no dearth of goals in their previous h2h meetings. Their last encounter with each other here, in particular, witnessed a combined total of seven goals on the charts.

Moreover, half of the past six fixtures at this stadium have turned into high scoring affairs. Given that Peterborough have conceded twelve goals from their previous six outings alone, it is certainly well within reason to expect over 2.5 goals this Saturday.
