Burnley vs Brentford

, KO: 15:00 Mar 16, 2024, Turf Moor

Burnley and Brentford square off in a Premier League fixture on Saturday with both teams looking to snap out of poor runs. The Clarets have actually struggled throughout the season and given Brentford’s fine record in recent meetings, they should have the edge in this one.

The rigours of topflight football have proved too much for Burnley this design as they have claimed just three wins from 27 matches so far. Vincent Kompany’s men have spent much of the campaign in the relegation zone and sitting 10 points from safety, look poised for an immediate return to the Championship.

Burnley’s last victory came back in December as they are currently winless in their last 10 Premier League matches. They threw away a two goal lead to draw 2-2 at West Ham last time out in the Premier League.

There has been little home comfort for Burnley, who have picked up just one win at Turf Moor all season. They suffered a 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Brentford have also found things difficult lately as they are winless in their last five Premier League matches. They are in desperate need of a swift upturn in form, sitting just five points above the relegation zone.

The Bees travel to Turf Moor off the back of a 2-1 defeat at Arsenal in their previous Premier League fixture. They went into the break level following Yoane Wissa’s equaliser and held on for long periods before conceding the winner four minutes from time.

Brentford have also found things difficult on their travels this season, although there have been a few results they can channel on Saturday. Among their results on the road this term is a 2-0 victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers while they also triumphed 3-0 at Chelsea.
