            Burnley vs Bournemouth Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Burnley and Bournemouth lock horns at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon in a crucial Premier League clash, with both teams desperate for points to avoid relegation.

            The hosts currently find themselves in 19th position in the table and have gained just 13 points from their 26 league games so far this season. Premier League survival already looks a difficult challenge for Burnley who are nine points adrift of safety.

            The Clarets come into this weekend on the back of a rotten run of form which has seen them gain just two points from their last eight league games, recording sis losses and two draws. Although this form may be slightly misleading as Vincent Kompany's side have had some difficult fixtures in recent weeks, facing Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City.

            Last weekend, Burnley were dominated by Crystal Palace in a convincing 3-0 victory at Selhurst Park. The Eagles took control in the second half, with Chris Richards, Odsonne Édouard, and Eberechi Eze all finding the net within nine minutes. Burnley, already down to 10 men after a first-half red card, were unable to respond and remain in the relegation zone.

            Bournemouth are currently sitting in 14th place in the Premier League table and have gained 28 points from their 25 league games so far this season. The cherries are in a comfortable position as they sit 8 points above the drop zone.

            Last weekend, Manchester City edged past a resolute Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium. The only goal came in the first half, with Phil Foden capitalizing on a parried Erling Haaland shot. Despite City's dominance in possession, Bournemouth posed a threat on the counter-attack, coming close to an equalizer on several occasions.

            Bournemouth are set to host Leicester City on Tuesday evening as they feature in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Given that they only have three days to recover before Saturday’s game, this may provide Burnley with an advantage on Saturday.

            Burnley and Bournemouth boast a history that stretches back to at least the 1961 FA Cup. Across 35 meetings in various competitions, Burnley has emerged victorious on 16 occasions, compared to Bournemouth's 8 wins. The remaining 11 matches ended in draws, showcasing the competitive nature of this rivalry.

            It was Bournemouth who came out on top of a tight match when these two sides met each other earlier on in the season. After falling behind to an early Charlie Taylor volley, the Cherries responded through Antoine Semenyo's equaliser. Philip Billing then sealed the comeback victory with a stunning long-range lob, sending the Vitality Stadium into raptures.

            It is Bournemouth who are heavily favoured ahead of this weekend’s matchup and are currently priced @ 10/11, whilst a home win for Burnley is priced @ 11/4 and a draw is currently @ 11/4.

            We are backing over 3.5 goals as this is historically a high scoring fixture. In the past four meetings of the two clubs, three games have resulted in over 2.5 goals. Also, Burnley have the second worst defensive record in the league and we expect this to be a high scoring game once more.

            Vincent Kompany has a number of absentees to deal with this weekend. Aaron Ramsey is set to be sidelined through a knee injury, whilst Jordan Beyer is not expected to make that starting XI. Elsewhere, Josh Brownhill is suspended after he received a red card last time out.
