Burnley and Leicester City will meet in the 27th round of the Premier League. Burnley plays in poor form, and 15th place in the table is not commendable. Sean Dyche is in huge trouble, and his players are not efficient. The guests got knocked out of the Europa League, the players lost their self-confidence, but they are still third on the table.

Reason for Burnley vs Leicester City Predictions
Burnley suffered a 4-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur, which left them just five points above the relegation zone and with only one win in the last six league matches. Known to be strong defensively, Burnley lost their footing very early against Tottenham and never recovered after conceding in the 68th second of the game. The 4-0 thrashing also marked a third time in seven matches that they’ve conceded two or more goals. They’ve failed to score in the last two league matches, and it will be worse here, having failed to win any of their previous four league games at home. The Clarets actually have just one win in the last six home matches. In their 13 home league games this season, Sean Dyche’s men have failed to score in six. Chris Wood is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Leicester City is in an unfortunate run in the last seven days. The key man James Maddison limped off injured against Aston Villa before they were eliminated from the Europa League and lost to Arsenal, denting their top-four chances. The 2016 champions also lost the impressive Harvey Barnes to injury in the Arsenal loss. In the three matches, they lost their defensive mettle, conceding six goals. Leicester has just two wins in their last five games but remains four points above fourth-placed West Ham United. One factor the Foxes will be pleased about going to the Burnley game is that they’ll be playing away from home. They’ve done superbly in away matches and are currently undefeated in eight in the league – five wins and three draws. Leicester have lost just one of their 13 away league matches and failed to score in two. Cengiz Under enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Harvey Barnes plays great, is fast in the one-on-one game, and is unstoppable. Brendan Rodgers has confidence in this guy who is the future of English football.
Leicester is the favorite in this match, as the last match of these two rivals was resolved in their favor with the result 4:2.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We expect to see an entertaining game with at least three goals at full time.
