Burnley to beat Aberdeen and under 3.5 goals 19/20 for Thursdays Europa League matchup
Competition: Europa League qualifier
Market: Burnley win and under 3.5 goals
Odds: 19/20 @ Bet 365
With a spot in the Europa League still very much up for grabs, last seasons surprise package Burnley will welcome Aberdeen to Turf Moor in a highly-anticipated battle of Britain. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw last week, with Sam Vokes clinching a vital late away goal at Pittodrie.
Starting with the hosts, it was a stellar domestic year for The Clarets and despite briefly flirting with the Top Four, Burnley recorded a record seventh-place finish. In their 38 games last season, Sean Dyche’s side recorded 14 wins, 12 draws and 12 defeats, scoring 36 and conceding 39 in return, they finished with the fourth best defensive record in the Premier League. Carrying on their impressive form on their pre-season tour, along with grabbing a crucial away goal in the 1-1 draw, The Clarets are unbeaten in all four of their pre-season matches, drawing two and winning two. Given their always rugged performances at Turf Moor, we’re backing Burnley to grind out a win on Thursday.
As for Aberdeen, although they were able to lessen the gap to runaway winners Celtic last season, The Dons still finished the campaign nine points adrift. In their 38 Scotish Premiership games, The Reds won 22, drew seven and lost nine, scoring 56 and conceding 37 in return. However, while they are now unbeaten in their seven pre-season outings, Aberdeen have lacked a killer instinct and have now drawn three of their last four appearances. Despite finding the net in all of their last 11 matches, we belive the gulf in class will be to much on Thursday.
