Burnley 5/4 to beat Nice in Tuesday’s friendly matchup
Market: Burnley win
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
With the Premier League season fast approaching, Burnley will welcome Ligue 1 outfit Nice to Turf Moor on Tuesday night for their penultimate pre-season appearance.
Starting with the hosts, while Burnley could only manage a 15th place finish in the Premier League last season, the Clarets have shown some signs of an improvement during pre-season. Losing just one of their five pre-season appearances over the summer, it is also worth noting that Burnley have scored two or more goals in three of their last four outings. While Tuesday’s hosts may have managed to record just a pair of clean sheets in their last 10 matches across all competitions, Burnley have won three of their last five matches on home soil, with their only two defeats coming against Manchester City and Arsenal.
As for the visitors, continuing to struggle during their pre-season preparations, Nice are showings signs of a hangover after finishing 10 points adrift of the Europa League spots in Ligue 1 last season. Suffering a 1-0 loss against Championship outfit Cardiff over the weekend, the French side have lost three of their last four pre-season appearances. Also recording just a pair of clean sheets in their last 10 matches across all competitions, it is also worth noting that Nice have managed to record just two away victories in their last 16 attempts.
