In Across the Leagues EXTRA today:
There’s a wide range of football on TV to choose from this weekend…
The Friday night action alone includes Crystal Palace v Newcastle in the Premier League (Amazon Prime Video). Wolfsburg v Werder Bremen in the German Bundesliga (BT Sport). And on the BBC this evening, Tranmere Rovers v non-league Brackley Town in the FA Cup 2nd Round.
For our Stat of the Week I’m going to the historical head-to-heads. If recent meetings are anything to go by, then Burnley are in for a very tough time of it at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon…
Man City v Burnley
Burnley have lost five of their opening eight games of the Premier League season. The most recent defeat being a 0-3 v Chelsea.
In this weekend’s Predictions table (see below), it’s unsurprisingly a clean sweep of picks for the City win, with 4-0, 4-0, and 3-0 the suggested scores.
The -2 Match Handicap is a bet that has landed in each of City’s last five home meetings with Burnley. That pays out if Pep Guardiola’s side win by 3+ goals.
