Our match prediction:
Turf Moor will host Saturday’s football game between Burnley and Swansea City. The Clarets did not spend too many time in the English second tier and they are now on a quest to secure the Premier League survival. Burnley have been impressive in warm-up games of late and they will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven games when they square off against Swansea City in the opening match of the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign. The Swans have been producing thrilling displays of late as well and it has to be noted that they defeated the likes of Bristol Rovers, Swindon Town, Wolves and Rennes in last four friendly games. The Welsh outfit are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet and considering that the Clarets are tough to beat at home, we predict that under 2.5 goals will be scored at Turf Moor. In their last meeting in the English top flight Swansea recorded a 1-0 win over Burnley.
