Not many experts could have predicted these two likes to be battling it for the sixth place in the standings come this 16th round tie.

Burnley

The Clarets are locked on point with Tottenham Hotspur in sixth at the moment and they have the third best defensive record in the entire league after 15 games.

Sean Dyche’s men conceded no more than two goals in last six matches at Turf Moor and they’ll be looking to keep this form going after this Saturday and Watford’s visit.

The Clarets are still anything but prolific up front in spite of the fact they signed Leeds’ talisman Chris Wood this summer.

They’ll head into this on the back of a 1-0 loss to Leicester City at King Power last weekend.

Watford

The Hornets took a single point in last two league outings amid a tough schedule and matches with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Portuguese manager Marco Silva has been doing a fantastic job on the bench ever since he took charge of the team.

Watford can be very dangerous in the final third as goals can come from anywhere. Most frequent scorers are Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucoure who have bagged five goals each so far in the season.

Burnley vs Watford: Head to head

The head to head tie speaks in Burnley’s favour as the Clarets lost only two of their 16 meetings with Watford at Turf Moor.

Both sides took home wins in last term’s clashes.

Burnley vs Watford: Prediction

Sean Dyche’s side is very tough to break down in their own backyard and we have to see them as favourites against Watford who’ll come into this low on confidence after conceding four to Man Utd last time out.

This will hardly be a high.-scoring affair and we do see the value in going for the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.65.

Burnley vs Watford: Bet Tips

The main bet is Burnley to win at 2.40.

Alternatively, you can back Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.65.
