Burton vs Shrewsbury
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 26 February 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Pirelli Stadium.

Burton are in the midst of a mediocre run of games at best, which has prevented them from breaking into the top half of the table.

Nearly equidistant from the playoffs and the relegation cutoff and those by a considerable amount of points, it looks like they are heading towards another mid table finish.

In their most recent fixture, they were cruelly stolen off two points. As they had to settle for a draw against Sunderland, away from home; as they found the equaliser in the 93rd minute to end the match 1-1.

Gaining a point on average from their previous league matches, the club is now 13th in League One, ten points ahead of their opponents for Saturday.

Shrewsbury’s form is rather worrying as the team has just a win this year and very little separates them from the drop zone. They need to spark an upturn to break away from the relegation picture.

In their most recent fixture, they suffered a 1-2 loss at home against Portsmouth, after they had a man sent off at the 31st minute. This marked their 2nd consecutive loss in the league.

With four draws preceding that result, the club is now 18th in the league standings, four points clear of the relegation zone.

Burton vs Shrewsbury Head-to-head

  • A win each was claimed by both teams in their last five meetings.
  • All but one of those matches witnessed a score line of fewer than three goals.

Burton vs Shrewsbury Prediction

A combined three goals were scored in five of the Shrews previous away fixtures. With their opponents averaging just a goal in their last five fixtures at this venue. A high scoring fixture this weekend is unlikely.

Town has scored just a goal in their last five league matches on the road. Moreover, with their opponents boasting one of the best defenses in the league outside the top five teams, expect a clean sheet from the home team.

Burton vs Shrewsbury Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.61 odds.
  • Burton: Clean sheet @ 2.62 odds.
