Leicester City vs. Burnley Match Analysis and Prediction

Burnley starts their 2020-21 season campaign this weekend as they travel to Leicester City for their first opening fixture. The match schedules for Sunday at the King Power Stadium with kickoff at 9:00 pm.

Burnley had their first opening match of the season against Manchester United postponed on Game Week 1. On the other hand, Leicester City started with a triumphant 3-1 win over West Brom. As luck would have it, Jamie Vardy would rise to the occasion and net two penalties.

It was a good sight as new debutant Castagne heading the first goal of the season. Leicester failed to register back to back wins in the Premier League since January 2020. A home ground encounter will motivate the side to break the curse and put their post-lockdown form to rest.

History appears to be on their side, with only losing one of their opening outings in England top flight once in the last 13 seasons. The only two straight wins for the side goes back to their Premier League win run in 2016. A win will motivate the side as they take on Arsenal next week in the EFL Cup.

Sean Dyche is having a good run at the helm of the camp with only two losses in their last 16 games in the 2019-20 season, landing them a top-half finish.
