On the upcoming Tuesday the main pool of the 20th round of the EPL will be played, one of the matches in which will be a game between Manchester United and Burnley. The Mancunians are the clear favorites in this couple and it is hard to argue with this action line for two reasons. Firstly, Man Utd themselves are in a great sporting shape, Mourinho’s team shows quality play at Old Trafford, scores a lot and doesn’t concede much. Secondly, Burnley have had a noticeable downturn after a terrific first half of the season, played in the EPL.
Last weekend Manchester United had a match against Leicester, the Devils managed to come forward after Vardy’s goal on the 27th minute of the encounter, but the Mancunians couldn’t hold the advantage, conceding on the 90+4th minute of the encounter from Maguire. Man Utd are situated on the second position in the EPL table, the Devils are falling behind the leading Man City by 13 points.
Last weekend Burnley lost a domestic match against Tottenham, 0:3, and before that the Crimsons had a draw with Brighton and were stronger than Watford and Stoke City. After 19 played rounds Burnley are situated on the seventh position in the EPL table, the future guests have 32 points in the asset, the gap to Tottenham, which are on fifth place, is two points, but in its turn there’s a positive handicap over Leicester, which are on the eighth – five points.
Manchester United will crash and burn after the loss of points, which happened in Leicester and Burnley will stand on the Mancunians’ way, which cannot play well two matches per week.
Prediction for the match: Man Utd to win with -1.5 Asian handicap
