Burnley vs Nottingham Forest

, KO: 16:00 May 19, 2024, Turf Moor
Nottingham Forest

BURNLEY bring the curtain down on their latest Premier League campaign when they face Nottingham Forest at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

After storming to the English Championship title in style last season, hopes were high that Vincent Kompany's side could make a splash upon their return to the top-flight.

However, the Clarets have spent the entire season in the relegation zone, with their demotion back to the second tier confirmed last Saturday following a 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.

Back at their Lancashire base this weekend, Burnley will look to give their fans something to cheer about when the Tricky Trees come to town.

Following a dramatic 3-2 loss at home to Chelsea last time out, Nuno Espirito Santo's side aren't mathematically safe just yet.

However, barring an improbable goal swing between themselves and Luton, Forest are all but guaranteed to be playing Premier League football for a third successive season.

How the bookies view it: More Turf Moor torture

Burnley, who have won just two of their 18 Premier League home games this season, are 19/10 outsiders on Bet 365.

Nottingham Forest are 27/20 favourites on Bet 365 while the draw can be backed at 5/2 with the same bookmaker.

Head to head: History favours the hosts

The two sides first-ever Premier League meeting earlier this season ended 1-1 at the City Ground.

Before that stalemate on the banks of the Trent, Burnley had avoided defeat in each of their previous seven fixtures with Nottingham Forest, with the Tricky Trees last triumph coming way back in 2012. 

Players to watch: Hudson-Odoi on hot-streak

Our man Kevin Mac was bang on the money when tipping up Nottingham Forest’s Callum Hudson-Odoi in the To Score or Assist market last weekend. After netting three times across his last two outings, the same selection looks worth revisiting at 6/4 (Bet 365) when the Reds head to Turf Moor on Sunday.

Jacob Bruun Larsen has scored in four of Burnley's last nine Premier League matches. The Danish winger is as big as 5/2 (Bet 365) to notch against Nottingham Forest on the final day of the season.

Predicted line-ups

This game is a dead-rubber for already-relegated Burnley, so boss Vincent Kompany could opt for an experimental starting XI.

After coming off the bench to good effect last weekend, Anthony Elanga could be restored to the Nottingham Forest starting line-up at Turf Moor.

Burnley: Muric; Assignon, O'Shea, Esteve, Taylor; Larsen, Cullen, Berge, Vitinho; Odobert, Foster

Nottingham Forest: Sels; Montiel, Boly, Murillo, Aina; Yates, Danilo; Elanaga, Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi; Wood

Anything else catch the eye? 

Nottingham Forest boss Nuno Espirito Santo has stressed that his side will be taking this game seriously so the visitors could be worth siding with to score two or more goals at 4/5 on Bet 365.

The Reds have racked up five goals across their last two league games and they could get more joy in front of goal when they go up against Burnley's brittle backline.

Vincent Kompany’s creaky Clarets have conceded multiple goals in 23 of their 37 Premier League games this season, including 12 of their 18 outings at Turf Moor,.

This match between Burnley and Nottingham Forest will be played on May 19, 2024 and kick off at 16:00. Check below for our tipsters best Burnley vs Nottingham Forest prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
