Venue: King Power Stadium

 

Two of the season’s newly-promoted squads meet in a clash that will either strengthen or weaken their campaign in the top-flight league.

 

Leicester is currently the heavy favorite of sports betting sites. Yet, its recent loss to Crystal Palace created doubts and disappointments.

 

Meanwhile, Burnley is still searching for their first win in the season. Adjusting has been a difficult endeavor for them, but they are determined to end their winning drought, by any means necessary.

 

The contenders

Leicester

Leicester’s unbeaten streak came to end when they met Crystal Palace. The latter kept a clean sheet against them and scored 2 crucial goals.

 

There is no doubt that the said scenario created disappointments considering the fact that it has also pushed them to the mid-table.

 

Playing in their own territory, the club can readily capitalize on its home court advantage to steal points from their visitor.

 

Burnley

Sitting at the rock bottom part of the table, Burnley is compelled to win its upcoming match.

 

Evidently, the squad cannot afford to lose another match or settle for another even steven finish. However, it seems that the club will have a difficult time achieving such aim since two (2) of its key players, Sam Vokes and Danny Ings are sidelined due to injuries.

 

Possible head turners

Leicester’s Leonardo Ulloa has been unstoppable and certainly, the striker shows no signs of failing to impress at home.

 

Prediction

Leicester 2-0 Burnley
