            Burnley vs Wolves Prediction & Betting Tips

            Wolves travel to Burnley to face a side who will be hoping to pick up three points in their desperate fight for survival.

            Date: 02/04/24

            Kick-off time: 19:45

            Venue: Turf Moor

            Burnley are 19th in the table, but will look to use the momentum gained in the last couple of results to pick up some more points against Wolves. Prior to the international break, they earned their first victory in 11 games as they beat Brentford 2-1. They returned from the break with a tough trip to Chelsea, but showed resilience to draw 2-2, despite having a man sent off. These two games leave them with 18 points, but they are now only four off safety. A victory would put them within touching distance of Nottingham Forest in 17th, but defeat would plunge them into further trouble.

            The visitors are comfortably in mid-table, but are well in the mix for a European spot. Currently occupying 10th, they are only three points behind West Ham in seventh with a game in hand. Three points could see them climb the table, but a loss would allow the teams around them to take advantage.

            Despite being amongst the lowest scorers in the league, Burnley have scored at least two goals in their last three. They have been handed a boost in the frontline with the January signing of David Datro Fofana on loan from Chelsea. Since his arrival, the Ivorian has scored four goals and provided one assist. Wolves have recorded some big wins away from home this season, beating the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea. They have scored 20 goals on the road, but top scorer Hwang Hee-Chan is still absent through injury, whilst Matheus Cunha is a doubt.

            Since 2020, these two sides have met six times in the Premier League. Burnley have edged the head-to-head, winning three, losing two and drawing one. However, one of the defeats came in the most recent game, the reverse fixture earlier this season. It was a tight affair as Wolves came out on top 1-0. Hwang scored the winner just before half-time. Three of the last four games at Turf Moor ended in victory for the hosts, with the other resulting in a 1-1 draw.

            Form Guide

            Burnley

            In their last five games, Burnley have won one, drawn two and lost two. This stretch began with a 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, a game that was made even more difficult when Josh Brownhill got himself sent off in the first half. They had managed to contain their hosts well, but once Chris Richards scored the opener, two more followed from Jordan Ayew and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

            Another defeat followed as they fell 2-0 at home to Bournemouth. Justin Kluivert and Antoine Semenyo scored either side of half-time to secure all three points for the Cherries. Burnley dominated with 75% possession and 20 attempts, but for all their superiority, they could not find the back of the net, and their opponents made the most of their limited chances.

            They finally picked up a point away at West Ham. However, it was a missed opportunity to record a huge win as they squandered a 2-0 lead. Loanee David Datro Fofana broke the deadlock in the 11th minute, before Konstantinos Mavropanos converted into his own net on the stroke of half-time. Lucas Paqueta provided an immediate response for the Hammers as he scored a minute into the second half. The Clarets were agonisingly close to holding on, but Danny Ings netted in the 91st minute to spoil the afternoon.

            The only victory of this run was a much needed win against Brentford. Their task was made easier when Sergio Reguilon saw red just eight minutes in, and Jacob Bruun Larsen converted the resulting penalty. Fofana added a second to give them a cushion, with Kristoffer Ajer’s 83rd minute goal nothing more than a consolation. Their most recent game was a trip to Chelsea, but they stunned their hosts by drawing 2-2, despite playing the second half with 10 men. Cole Palmer put the Blues ahead from the penalty spot, which came from a challenge which earned Lorenz Assignon a second yellow card and led to manager Vincent Kompany being dismissed. However, they got back into the game thanks to an excellent finish by Josh Cullen, but conceded to Palmer again. They did not lie down though, as Dara O’Shea converted from a corner to ensure the points were shared.

            Wolves

            In their last five games, Wolves have won two and lost three. They are in the midst of some mixed form as they enter the final stretch of the season. This run began with an FA Cup Fifth Round victory over fellow Premier League side Brighton. The tie was decided in the second minute, as Mario Lemina’s goal proved to be the difference, despite the visitors dominating possession.

            This set up a quarter-final at home to Coventry, and it was one of the most dramatic ties in some time. The final score was 3-2 in favour of the Championship side, even though it was goalless at half-time. The visitors took the lead in the 53rd minute through Ellis Simms, but the tie was turned on its head in the last 10 minutes. Rayan Ait-Nouri equalised with seven minutes to go, before Hugo Bueno put them in front five minutes later. Coventry looked destined for elimination, but Simms stepped up once more to level it in the 97th minute. With extra-time almost a formality, the Sky Blues sent the away end wild as Haji Wright found the back of the net in the 10th minute of stoppage time.

            Between these two ties was a defeat at Newcastle and a victory over Fulham. First, a 3-0 loss at St James’ Park. Alexander Isak opened the scoring early on, before the lead was doubled by Gordon before the break. Tino Livramento completed the win in second half stoppage time. The 2-1 win against Fulham was more comfortable than the scoreline suggested with the visitors’ goal coming in the 98th minute, following an Ait-Nouri strike and Tom Cairney own goal.

            Their most recent game was a derby clash at Aston Villa. They were defeated 2-0 as Moussa Diaby and Ezri Konsa scored either side of half-time.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            Burnley enjoy the better head-to-head but are in a relegation battle whilst Wolves fight for a top half position. However, recent results suggest a bit of a resurgence and at home we expect them to continue their unbeaten run by picking up a point in a tight affair – Burnley 1-1 Wolves
