Match: Burnley vs Peterborough
League: English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 4 January 2020
Kick-off at 12:31 UK / 13:32 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Burnley vs Peterborough: Burnley could be said to be at his best on the house floor. Given the obvious difference in the stature of the teams involved, Peterborough’s chances of progress certainly seem bleak.
Burnley has yet to ensure consistency in his Premier League campaign and currently resides in the lower half of the scale. The hosts were on a losing streak of two games when they faced Aston Villa earlier this week and expect a much more promising FA Cup course this season.
Meanwhile, Peterborough reserved his place in the round of 16 after beating three goals without a response before Dover at home. The visitors were certainly much better in this last game, leaving their counterparts difficult to find even a goal of comfort.
Anyway, the visiting team has not been well since then, and only has one victory to show off their last six games in all competitions. In addition, the guests did not obtain any right to boast during their last two visits to Turf Moor.
To make matters worse, Peterborough has only tried success once in his last ten outings. Given that visitors are also part of a much less competitive national campaign, expect Burnley to be too attractive to handle the outside in it.
In addition, there was no shortage of objectives at their previous h2h meetings. Their last meeting between them, in particular, saw a combined total of seven goals on the cards.
In addition, half of the last six games at this stadium have become businesses with a high score. Since Peterborough has conceded twelve goals in his last six starts, it is reasonable to expect more than 2.5 goals this Saturday.
