Burnley Form Guide
Burnley played two friendly matches in preparation for their new Championship campaign; they went up against Shrewsbury Town and Rochdale, winning both games.
On the other hand, Huddersfield did not enjoy the same run of form this off-season; they played five friendly games, with two wins, a draw and two losses.
It’s fair to point out that recent encounters between Huddersfield and Burnley have seen a lot of draws; as three of their last five clashes ended in stalemates.
Considering this is the first match of the season, we believe these teams will be level at the end of 90 minutes.
Huddersfield Town and Burnley have faced off a lot of times, and most of those meetings featured goals at both ends.
As a matter of fact, seven of the last nine encounters between these teams saw both teams scoring, including their last three clashes. It’s been the same case with Burnley; as both teams scored in five of their last seven matches.
Huddersfield Form Guide
Huddersfield Town have been involved in a lot of low-scoring matches recently; seven of their last nine games saw less than three goals scored, with four of their last seven games going under 1.5.
Similarly, Burnley have had their fair share of low-scoring games; as three of their last five matches went below the 2.5 goal margin.
It’s also important to point out that three of the last five clashes between Huddersfield Town and Burnley went under 2.5; on that note, we don’t believe these teams will score more than two goals here, with 1:1 being a probable scoreline which should appeal to punters.
