Burnley vs Leicester Prediction & Match Preview

 

Burnley vs Leicester Prediction & Match Preview


Turf Moor will host Sunday’s football game between Burnley and Leicester City, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. 

Burnley are fighting hard to secure the Premier League survival, while Leicester City are eyeing a place in the Champions League. 

The Clarets experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Tottenham, and it is no wonder bookies see them as underdogs in the midweek clash.

The Foxes, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Arsenal. 

Even though Jamie Vardy has been struggling in front of goal of late, he will be the man to watch in the away team. 

Anyhow, we believe that Leicester City will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the English top flight. Both Perez and Maddison are facing race against the clock to be fit for the Turf Moor game.
