Manchester City vs Burnley England FA Cup Prediction by LeagueLane

Manchester City vs Burnley Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in English FA Cup on Saturday, 18 March 2023.

The Citizens are possibly the best team in the whole of Europe at the moment. Case in point, their 7-0 win over Leipzig in the Round of 16 game against Leipzig.

Meanwhile, Burnley are not even in the top flight at the moment. They are part of the Championship, and have a rather poor record against Pep Guardiola’s men.

Manchester City vs Burnley Head-to-head stats

The Citizens are on a 10-game winning streak against this opponent, and they also won 14 of the past 15 h2h meetings. And at this venue, the hosts have a perfect winning record in the past 25 years, barring only two draws.

Who will win the match between Manchester City vs Burnley?

Pep Guardiola’s men are fresh off a 7-0 win in the Champions League, and seem to be the favorites to lift the UCL at the end of the season. They also have a near-perfect h2h record against this rival over the years.

Do also take into account the fact that Burnley are currently playing in the second division of England.

A huge win is predicted for Manchester City this weekend.

How many goals can be expected?

The Citizens scored 17 goals from their past five overall games, and they slotted in 24 goals from their previous seven appearances at home. Note that they also scored 34 goals from their past ten h2h clashes against this rival.

Likely, a high-scoring affair is expected this Saturday.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

Guardiola’s men kept clean sheets in their last four games in a row, and they did so in nine of the previous ten h2h encounters as well.

It looks doubtful if Burnley would be able to find the back of the net this weekend.

The Citizens are in phenomenal form, and are gunning for the treble at this point. They also have a superb h2h record against this foe over the years – particularly so at this venue.
