Watford vs Burnley Preview and Livestream

The Hornets were doing poorly at the start of the season. They then sacked their manager and got in Claudio Ranieri. Unsurprisingly, nothing much has changed. The Hornets are not really PL quality if we go by their squad quality but have still maintained a fighting chance for themselves in the league this season. Their loss to Brentford last weekend, however, places a question mark over their chances of PL survival.

Burnley, on the other hand, managed a heroic draw against an in-form West Ham United side, while also keeping a clean sheet. This could be the turning point for them this season as they would get the confidence that they can eke out results here and there to reach the magic 40 point mark. Burnley won their last two games against Watford in the 2019/20 season. A repeat of that would be just what the doctor ordered.

Watford vs Burnley Prediction

Both these teams are evenly matched, from their team sheets to their style and tactics, there is no separating them on the pitch. Both teams would be in a relegation battle but the Clarets have been here for a while and know how to sneak out results when it matters. This would be one of those times for them as we believe they can secure a 1-0 win, which would go a long way in their bid for survival.
