Leicester City vs Burnley Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions


Jamie Vardy Leicester 2020-21

Leicester City will be aiming to make it two wins from two when they host Burnley in their first home match of the Premier League season.

Burnley are yet to kick off their season with their scheduled fixture against Manchester United postponed to give the Red Devils extra rest following their Europa League campaign in August.

Leicester won this fixture 2-1 last season and are 8/13(1.62) favourites with bet365 to claim victory at the King Power Stadium.

It has been almost 13 years since the Clarets last claimed victory at the Foxes’ home ground and they are available at 3/1(4.0) to start their campaign with a win.

Just one of the last nine meetings between these sides hasfinished in a draw, with bet365 offering 9/2(5.50) that this one ends all-square as well.

Brendan Rodgers will likely field a similar line-up to the one that beat West Brom, although James Maddison will be pushing for a start. Ricardo Pereira has been out since March and is unlikely to be fit before October.

James Tarkowski has been the subject of transfer rumours this summer but should start this one, whilst Chris Wood is likely to lead the line after his 14-goal haul last season.

Leicester banished the demons of last season with that convincing victory at West Brom, although it was another case of playing the waiting game as the deadlock was broken in the second half.

That is a trend that started last term for the Foxes, with 13 of their fixtures being 0-0 at the break andRodgers’ side failing to score in the first half in 22 of their 38 games.

It was a similar case for Burnley, too, who found the net before the break on just 12 occasions last season but also held their opposition to nil 21 times during the opening 45 minutes.

Only Wolves and Crystal Palace scored a lower percentage of their goals in the first half than these sides last term, with just 32.6 per centof Burnley’s and 35.8%of Leicester’s coming during the opening period.

With that in mind, the 21/20 (2.05) price from bet365 on the second half seeing the most goals offers the best value for punters for this Premier League clash.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
