Burnley vs Leicester – Premier League: Burnley hosts Leicester at the Turf Moor Stadium this Saturday, in another round of the Premier League
This is one of the most interesting duels, since it features two teams that are making great campaigns on this edition of the competition. Burnley sits in 7th place with 49 points conquered.
The team is only behind the big favourites (City, United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal) and even when they faced them, they always made for very competitive matches.
Playing at home, Burnley has 6 victories, 4 draws and 5 losses, with 12 goals scored and 12 goals conceded.
Right behind is Leicester. The idea of the Leicester that won the title might always get in the way of our evaluation of their campaign.
But I believe their campaign can be considered to be very good. The team occupies the 8th place with 43 points.
On the last round, they’ve lost against Newcastle. Playing as visitors, they have 5 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses, with 26 goals scored and 26 goals conceded.

This is a duel between the two best teams of the Premier League, outside of the giants. And that is true. Both teams are making great campaigns, only finishing behind the teams with an unattainable financial power.
But upon the expectations and limitations of both teams, they have made respectable campaigns. On paper, maybe Leicester has the team with more quality, with players like Vardy or Mahrez being a clear indicator of that.
Burnley vs Leicester – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But collectively, from everything I’ve seen on the Premier League, Burnley seems to be more organized. While Leicester depends more on those stars.
With that in mind, allied with the home advantage, I see value on Burnley here.
Of course that, by the balance this match suggests, my choice will be taking Burnley while protecting from a potential draw.
