Watford vs Burnley Match Preview
Burnley have turned the page with the turn of the year and they travel to Watford looking to take revenge for a 1-3 home loss suffered to the rivals earlier this term, coming into the match on the back of a four-match winning streak across competitions.
Clarets have beaten West Ham (2-0), Huddersfield (1-2), Fulham (2-1) and aside from bagging the important Premier League points, Sean Dyche’s men made it to the 4th Round of FA Cup over Barnsley – where a last-gasp penalty-kick winner from Chris Wood made all the difference.
Watford host the contest on the back of a winning streak of their own, where they beat Woking (0-2) and Crystal Palace (1-2) in two good performances on the road and extended a streak of four games without a loss. They’ve been scoring numbers of goals and proven themselves a tough side to beat, promising a great challenge now once again.
Hornets have seen a tough schedule in front of the home crowd and struggled for such pick-me-ups, though, only beating Cardiff (3-2) in last five outings at Vicarage Road. They’ve seen Liverpool (0-3), Man City (1-2), Chelsea (1-2), and Newcastle (1-1) snatch spoils along the way and ending the streak will be a task for Javi Gracia.
We’ll now stick our necks out for Burnley to capitalize on such troubles, though, and going for a Double Chance –Draw or Away win seems great value at 13/10 with Coral – despite their more lenient schedule helping lift the dressing room spirits.
We have seen both sides scoring and conceding goals lately and we now hope for more of the same, which largely brings to our prediction for the sides to share the spoils. We’ll thus also back a Yes on Both teams to score, which comes at an enticing 10/11 with Betfred.
