Tuesday evening, at 20:15 pm, Burnley receives a visit to Manchester City, in the 15th round of the Premier League. For the moment, the “citizens” seem to be completely out of the fight for the title, where Liverpool has first place and a comfortable breakthrough. However, the title champion must grit and continue to win championship matches, against modest teams.
Without Aguero, Laporte, Sane and Zinchenko, Manchester City comes to Turf Moor knowing he has a very good record against Burnley in the direct matches. City has prevailed in 4 of the last five straight duels, including in the last trip (1-0), and the scores of 5-0 administered in the last years certainly give “citizens” confidence. But Guardiola’s band has only one success in the last five official matches and the team’s game no longer offers security.
Last time, without Aguero (injured), Manchester City drew on Newcastle United’s ground after driving twice. Burnley gave up on home soil with Crystal Palce (0-2), after impressive victories with Watford (3-0) and West Ham (3-0). Manchester City is second in the Premier League (goal scoring 39-16), while Burnley ranks 10th (goal 20-20), still far from relegation concerns. Obviously, the difference in value is significant.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / NO @ 1,77
