Burnley vs Watford Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Thursday, 25 June 2020. Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the Turf Moor.
After their fluke win against Liverpool, the Hornets are back to their struggling form. As of now, they are just a single point above the relegation cut-off, and by the looks of things they will be right in the middle of the dogfight that is about to ensue in the bottom-most tier to avoid the boot.
In the meantime, the Clarets have a considerable buffer of points over the cut-off, and this gives them the luxury to go after a European spot. Moreover, the exclusion of Manchester City from UEFA competition for next two years has freed up an extra CL spot for teams beneath them.
Most importantly, the Clarets have a good h2h record in the recent past, and they have been formidable at home lately, while the Hornets have been a complete disaster on the road. Likely, expect the better performance from Burnley this Thursday.
Head-to-head Stats (h2h)
- The reverse fixture ended in a 0-3 win on the road for the Clarets.
- Eight of the former twelve wins had gone to the Clarets as well.
- Five of the previous nine match-ups saw the Hornets failing to score goals.
- Since 2004, the guests have a single win at this stadium.
- The visitors failed to score goals in three of the prior four clashes at this venue.
Burnley vs Watford: Prediction
The Clarets lost 5-0 on the road the last match-day, against Manchester City. While it was a huge loss, the fact that it had come against Pep Guardiola’s men make it so that fans need not be panicked by this result.
In the meantime, the Hornets recorded a 1-1 draw at home the prior match-day, against Leicester. It was an inspiring result by the home team, as they slotted in the equalizer in the 90+3rd minute.
As things stand, the Clarets have the upper hand. They were unbeaten in five of their past six overall fixtures, and even remained unbeaten at home against the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham from their past three appearances here.
On the other hand, the Hornets have a single win from their last nine overall games, and just two on the road from their preceding sixteen trips. Moreover, the Clarets had won the reverse fixture 0-3 on the road, and they have lost a single h2h encounter at this venue since 2004.
Considering these stats, it’s strongly implied that Burnley are the favorites this Thursday.
