Under 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Preston’s games have averaged just 0.4 goals per-game this season, with just three in eight league encounters! That’s the lowest average in the English footballing pyramid and we expect more of the same here.

Burnley 1-0

Reason for tip

Fourteen of the 16 league games involving either side this season produced under 2.5 total goals, yet Preston were finally found out last time out and could slip to yet another defeat.

Preston vs Burnley Predictions

  • Every one of Preston’s eight league games this season produced under 1.5 goals.
  • Six of Burnley’s eight league games this season produced under 2.5 goals.
  • All of the H2H meetings across the last decade saw two or fewer goals scored.

Defensive solidity, but at what cost?

It took until round eight for Preston to concede their first goal of the season, which is astonishing in itself but that solidity has came at the detriment of their attack. With just two scored goals, Preston’s league games have averaged a minute 0.4 goals per-match, the lowest in English football!

Much like the hosts, Burnley are used to playing out low scoring games. Six of Burnley’s eight league games so far produced under 2.5 goals in total, which is perhaps in keeping with their former defender turned manager Vincent Kompany.

Clashes between the pair have often been low scoring affairs, with all encounters across the last decade producing under 2.5 total goals while the away side on the day won each of the last two meetings.

The Clarets can sneak a win

Now that Preston have been breached, we fancy Burnley to maybe nick this one by a narrow 1-0 scoreline. They have a better squad on paper and appear to be on course to challenge for promotion this season, although the main prediction is certainly one of under 2.5 total goals.
