Burnley vs Brentford Prediction

  • Brentford to win @ 23/20
  • Yoane Wissa to score anytime @ 15/8

Team News

Burnley's injuries continue to pile up, as Luca Koleosho, Aaron Ramsey, Nathan Redmond, Lyle Foster and Jordan Beyer all remain on the treatment table.

As for Brentford, Christian Norgaard lasted just 34 minutes against Arsenal, before having to withdraw due to injury, but there's hope that the Dane will be fit for this weekend.

Sergio Reguilon was absent for the defeat at the Emirates, but could return here, however Ben Mee, Rico Henry, Josh Dasilva, Aaron Hickey, Bryan Mbeumo, Kevin Schade and Ethan Pinnock remain out of contention.

Match Odds

The odds of 9/4 for the home win implies that Burnley have a 30.8% chance of picking up a vital three points, whilst Brentford are 21/20, or a 46.5% chance to bounce back from the defeat at Arsenal last weekend.

The draw can be backed at 13/5 while both teams to score is priced up at 4/7.

Brentford to win @ 23/20

The demands of top-flight football have proven too much for Burnley thus far, as the Clarets have managed to muster just three wins from 27 matches this season. In fact, Kompany's side have lost 11 of 14 home Premier League games this season, including four of seven against bottom-half clubs.

As for Brentford, they've also had a tough time of it lately, as they're winless in their last five league outings.

However, the Bees' recent road form does offer some encouragement - since beating Wolves at Molineux, Brentford have lost narrowly to Manchester City and Arsenal and they can prevail against a struggling Clarets side.

Brentford to win at 23-20

Yoane Wissa to score anytime @ 15/8

The 27-year-old has found the back of the net in his last three outings, including last weekend at the Emirates, and he's priced at 15/8 to maintain his scoring run.

The former Lorient forward scored in the reverse fixture against Burnley, so he'll be confident of increasing his goal tally here.
