Burton vs Tranmere Prediction

A 3-1 scoreline at home against Rochdale helped Burton to mark their second win after three winless games from the first one.

In the league, the host has scored 24 goals while conceding 23 goals in the process. This shows that they do have problems at the back.

However, they have improved their form at home in the campaign. Evidently, the host has lost only one of their last five home matches.

On the other hand, Tranmere won their previous league clash at home against the likes of AFC Wimbledon.

Even so, they have three losses in their last five league fixtures this season. With half of their campaign schedule resulting in losses, Tranmere pose less threat on the road.

Besides that, the visitor has lost the last two matches on the road. Also, they have scored only 7 goals in their 10 away fixtures.

Apart from that, Tranmere has only two wins in their 11 away games so far in the campaign. Hence, their on the road form is not up to the mark.

As such, we can expect the host, Burton, to win the clash in ninety minutes. Also, there will not be a flurry of goals probably. We can count on under 2.5 goals in the process most likely.
