Today’s football prediction for Manchester City vs Burnley
Manchester City host Burnley in a Premier League 30th round match. The match will be played on March 14, Saturday, from 5:00 pm at Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City occupy the second position in the English Championship with an asset of 57 points, with 22 fewer than the Liverpool leader. Pep Guardiola’s team has a match less than the leader, but it matters a bit since the title is long overdue. The big goal for the hosts until the end of the season will be to win the Champions League. However, it became clear that the rematch of the 1/8-finals of the tournament against Real Madrid next week was postponed. So now Pep Guardiola’s team will only focus on Burnley.
Man City have scored exactly two goals in six of their last eight at home to the English elite, with three of those meetings ending in a 2-1 result. The hosts have scored three or more in just four of their 13 home games in the league this season, the last time this happened in December. Pep Guardiola’s team has won only three of its last six league matches, losing to Tottenham and Man United over this period, so it needs improvement in form.
Burnley’s squad is 10th in the provisional 39-point standings with less than 9th Arsenal. Guests have a chance to qualify for European club tournaments if they continue with their good performances. They have been unbeaten in their last five league games, recording 2 wins and 3 draws. In the last round, the team made a draw 1-1 at home against Tottenham Hotspur, before finishing 0-0 on the pitch at Newcastle.
I expect a strong match from the current champions on Saturday. They have scored exactly two goals in each of their last four home games and have won four of their last five games in the Etihad League. In my opinion, Manchester City will win this match and bet -1.5 Asian Handicap in favor of the hosts. Enjoy our today’s football prediction!
