Sheffield United – Burnley betting tip, prediction & odds 20.04.2024

Premier League, Saturday, 20.04.2024

Crisis duel in the Premier League. The Blades and Clarets face each other on Saturday as part of the 34th matchday.

When the last-placed team receives the penultimate, it should be clear what time it is. Basically, neither team can afford a defeat or a draw.

That’s why my Sheffield United Burnley betting tip assumes a game with a few goals. However, I’m not picking a favorite

Chris Wilder’s side are ten points adrift of safety. Sheffield may still have a game in hand, but the club is up to its neck in water.

The fact that it is still conceivable with a little imagination is partly due to the points dropped by both Everton and Nottingham Forest

On the other hand, recent performances have been quite respectable. Among other things, the now hosts picked up a point in the last minute against Chelsea (2-2).

But the Blades’ defense is too big a problem. They have already conceded 84 goals after 32 games. That is the highest figure in England’s top flight since the 1963/64 season. Back then, Ipswich Town conceded 85 goals

This could be a good sign for coach Vincent Kompany’s men, who are now on the road. With a three-pointer on Saturday, they could close the gap to three points.

Especially as the Clarets are in decent form at the moment. They have only lost once in their last six games (1S, 4U).

At the same time, however, they have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 15 league games. Will the hosts be able to capitalize on this?

Bookmakers such as Interwetten are offering relatively high odds of up to 3.60 on the Sheffield United Burnley betting tip if the visitors can keep a clean sheet, as they did in the first leg.

So they don’t have much confidence in Kompany’s defense …

The first leg is also a good keyword. It was one of only four wins the Clarets have recorded so far this season.

At the same time, it was the only home win in a head-to-head between two promoted teams so far this season. The away team has won three times in these games, with one draw

The Blades’ current home record would also suggest a repeat or a better outcome for the visitors.

There has not been a home treble at Bramall Lane (3U, 4N) for seven games. The home side have also conceded at least two goals in each of those games.

At Betano Sportwetten, you can now find odds of around 2.20 if the visitors score over 1.5 goals and do not lose (double chance X2)

However, Bramall Lane has not been a good place for the Clarets for years. In 20 league games, they have managed just one win here (5U, 14N).

The Blades have also won their home games against the men from Lancashire with somnambulistic certainty in the Premier League

What united all the games was the number of goals the fans got to see. At least five goals were scored in three of the five direct duels.

In the Betway app, you can find odds of around 2.50 on the Sheffield United Burnley betting tip if at least four goals are scored this time

I’m not expecting a one-sided result like the 5-0 win for the Clarets in the first leg this time.

Nevertheless, it could get down to business. If a team falls behind, the answer will not be long in coming. No losing for either side!

Therefore, my Sheffield United Burnley tip is: Both teams score & Over 2.5 goals!
