Leicester City is predicted to win tonight’s game against Burnley as per the latest Leicester vs Burnley Prediction and Odds

Leicester City will desperately look for a win when they face the confident Burnley side in their next fixture. The performance of the Foxes has been average this season as they have fallen to the 12th spot in the Premier League points table after a series of disappointing performances in the last two months.

However, they will be traveling to Burley after winning their last match against the Randers in the Europa Conference League. The statement of Harvey Barnes after the win would be making the fans hopeful for the next clash. In the post-match interview with LCFC, he said:

“I think we knew coming here that it was going to be a difficult game. Obviously, we had a good lead from the first leg, but the pitch made it difficult, I think, so that was something to deal with. The early goal put us in a good position and throughout the game, we did alright. We weren’t playing to our best, but we felt we controlled the game and to go and get the other goals as well, it was a good night’s work.”

Burnley had an off-season as well. They are currently at the 18th spot in the points table with only 21 points from 24 games. However, the recent two wins against Brighton and Tottenham must have given the boys some confidence. The Clarets need to be at their best against Leicester City but they have clearly ruled out the tag of underdogs after the recent performances.
