Burnley v Leeds United Match Preview & Trends

Will we see another odd number of goals at Turf Moor?

Two proud managers face-off in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off at Turf Moor, both will have had pre-season aspirations of remaining in the division and that has been achieved by Sean Dyche and Marcelo Bielsa respectively. Leeds of course, have not really ever been in a relegation fight this year having been comfortably mid-table or higher for the majority of the season. Bielsa’s attacking football has lit up the Premier League this season and entertained us all in the absence of fans at the Stadiums. Dyche is now the longest-serving current Premier League manager and can start planning for next season now that his team’s survival has been confirmed after beating Fulham at Craven Cottage on Monday night.

Burnley have scored before half-time in their last 4 home games and more goals have been scored in the first half in Burnley’s last 3 matches. There have been fewer than four cards in each of the last 5 league games involving Burnley and Sean Dyche’s team have conceded at least 1 goal in 82% of their home matches. The Clarets have scored 61% of their goals in the first half but have failed to win in their last 8 home matches. Interestingly Burnley are fast starters and have scored 27% of their goals in the first 15 minutes.

8 of the last 10 games between Burnley and Leeds have ended up with an odd number of goals. In fact, 9 of the last 10 games between these sides at Turf Moor have also ended with an odd number of goals. Leeds Utd have scored in 76% of their away matches and 64% of Leeds Utd’s conceded goals occurred in the first half.

If Burnley win, they would reduce the gap with Leeds Utd to an 8-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of an 8-match winless streak at home for The Clarets,  Leeds Utd’s 18th away match and without a draw and Bielsa’s men having conceded at least one goal for the 10th consecutive away contest.

Key trends

Burnley have picked up an average of 1.06 Points Per Game in their 17 matches played at home

Leeds United’s average Points Per Game in their 17 away games is 1.41.

Burnley have scored in each of their last 9 matches
