Aston Villa vs. Burnley – Score prediction (28.09.2019)




Overview.

Aston Villa sit 18th after six rounds of matches with an overall record of: W1, D1, L4, and a goal difference of -3, mirroring both their points return and goal difference at this stage when they were relegated in 2015/16. A level home record has seen them keep two clean sheets and actually avoid conceding from the 13th minute onwards. But games at Villa Park have hardly been a thrill-a-minute, with the 1.67 goals per game average the joint-third lowest in the Premier League (PL).

Burnley are unbeaten in their last two PL matches as part of a perfectly balanced start, representing their second-best points return at this stage of the season since returning to the PL in 2016/17. They are, however, without an away league win in five PL matches overall (three this season).
Sean Dyche’s side have only failed to score once this season (against PL leaders Liverpool) but have found the net in each of their away PL matches, scoring once on each occasion. Despite taking the lead away from home just once this season, Burnley are yet to trail at the break.
