Wigan vs Burnley
EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 27 August 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: DW Stadium.

After defeating Shrewsbury in the second round of the EFL Cup, Burnley will travel to DW Stadium to lock horns with Wigan in the championship this Saturday. In the league table there is no margin between both teams, each with six points.

Former Manchester City player Vincent Kompany became the new Gaffer this summer. Sean Dyche’s departs after ten years of service for the Clarets.

In their most recent league outing, the Clarets drew against Blackpool. A late comeback from Michael Appleton’s side ended the game in a dramatic 2-2 draw. Nathan Tella scored a brace in the first half.

Meanwhile, Wigan played against Birmingham in the last league game it ended in a draw. It is worth noting that Leam Richardson’s side managed to win the game despite ten men playing.

Also, the Latics conceded only two goals in the past four league outings. In the EFL Championship, the Latics are unbeaten so far.

The Latics will play after a period of one week, Leam Richardson and his boys are not lacking any rest as they go into this game against the Clarets.

Wigan vs Burnley Head-to-head

  • The head-to-head record shows that in the last thirteen games between the two sides, the Latics won three times.
  • The Clarets won twice and eight games ended in a draw.
  • Both sides last met three years ago in a club friendly – the game ended in a 2-2 draw.
  • In the last five away fixtures, Vincent Kompany’s side only lost once.

Wigan vs Burnley Prediction

The goal rate stats show that the Clarets are currently averaging 1.20 goals per game. On the other hand, the Latics are averaging a meagre of 0.75 goals per game – this will make a big difference in this game.

In the EFL Championship the Latics have only scored three goals in four matches. Therefore, Leam Richardson’s side is lacking goal-scoring ability this season.

On the other hand, Vincent Kompany’s side has scored twice more than the Latics. Hence, we see this game with the Clarets winning at FT at 2.00 odd.
