Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Wednesday’s football game at Turf Moor pits together Burnley and Aston Villa, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Burnley aim to build on a historical 1-0 win over Liverpool, and they are must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Villa. Boss Sean Dyche should have a full squad to choose from. The Villans, on the other hand, recorded a routine 2-0 win over Newcastle United in their last league match.
Jack Grealish and Co. are enjoying a season to remember, but beating Burnley at Turf Moor is easier said than done. A close match is on the horizon, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Brazil attacker Wesley remains on the sidelines with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team. In the first half off the season the two teams played out a goalless draw at Villa Park.
Highlighted Player (Bailey Peacock-Farrell):
Despite being born in Darlington, England on October 29, 1996, Bailey Peacock-Farrell represents Northern Ireland at senior level. The Northern Ireland international started his youth career at Middlesbrough, but in 2013 he joined Leeds United. The talented goalkeeper continued playing for Leeds United senior team and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell made his first-team debut for the Whites on April 5, 2016 in a home game against Queens Park Rangers. The two played out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road and it has to be noted that the goalkeeper conceded a penalty kick in the 87th minute of the match. The 192-cm tall shot-stopper has a contract with Leeds United which should expire on June, 2020.
As previously mentioned, the Leeds United goalkeeper represents Northern Ireland on the international stage, qualifying for the national team thanks to his grandfather Jim Farreell, who was born in Enniskillen.
Highlighted Team (Aston Villa):
Aston Villa is one of the three clubs that dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. The Villans host their rivals at Villa Park, the stadium that was opened in 1897 and its’ capacity is 42,682. However, it has to be noted that the highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 76,588 when Aston Villa faced Derby County in the FA Cup back in 1946.
Aston Villa’s fiercest rivals are Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, the rivalry between Aston Villa and Wolves and Coventry City is big as well. Aston Villa have won seven First Division (Premier League) trophies, with the team clinching seven FA Cup trophies as well.
The team’s biggest success, though, came in 1982 when they won the European Cup. The Villans defeated Bayern Munich (1-0) in the title game and Peter Withe was named the man of the match.
