Our football match prediction:
Hull City showed character against Aston Villa in the opening match of the season. The Tigers came from behind to share the spoils with the Villans in Birmingham and they will be looking to build on the performance when they welcome Burton Albion at their KCOM Stadium on day 2. Hull City aim to return to the English top flight as soon as possible and they need to collect as many points as possible from their home games this season if they are to meet the goal. Leonid Slutsky’s men are seen as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football match against Burton Albion. The Brewers suffered a 1-0 loss to Cardiff City at home in their opener and they are certainly low on confidence ahead of the trip to Hull. Taking everything into account, we predict that the hosts will record their first win of the season this weekend.
