Coventry vs Burton Prediction & Match Preview

Coventry vs Burton
English League One
Date: Friday, 8 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Ricoh Arena (Coventry).

Coventry City seem to have caught the last train to get involved in the battle for the promotional play-offs. They took 10 out of possible 12 points from past four rounds and have climbed up to 9th place as a consequence. The Sky Blues by no means had an easy schedule in the last couple of weeks, though.

They held leaders Luton Town to a 1-1 draw before beating Accrington Stanley 0-1, both on the road. The team are now five points shy of sixth-placed Doncaster Rovers who have a game in hand on them , meaning a win over Burton in the first match of the 36th round pops up as an imperative for the hosts.

Coventry vs Burton: Head-to-head

Burton won two, drew one and lost one of four H2H meetings with the Sky Blues.

The Brewers took a 1-0 victory when they hosted Coventry City in the first half of the season back in mid-November last year.

It is interesting to note that only one of four H2H affairs saw goals scored at both ends.

Coventry vs Burton: Prediction

Burton hold 11th place in the league ladder and practically have nowhere to go in the remaining part of the season. They struggled badly for goals in recent weeks and will come into this after failing to find the net in three successive affairs.

The Brewers, however, managed to keep things quiet at the back at the same time. They shipped only two goals in last six matches in League One. None of past nine outings they played in all competitions saw three or more goals scored.

Coventry City were also super tough to break down of late. They allowed just one goal in last four league affairs. Under 2.5 goals FT is thus a must-take bet at the odds of 1.72, while braver punters can chase Coventry City to win 1-0 at 8.00.

Coventry vs Burton: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.72 (8/11)
  • Coventry City to win 1-0 @ 8.00 (7/1).
