Cagey affair anticipated at Molineux
With key creator Pedro Neto joining long-term absentee Raul Jimenez on the sidelines, Wolves have looked unsurprisingly short on cutting edge, and that lack of goal-getters in the final third should produce another low scoring contest when Burnley visit Molineux on Sunday.
Wanderers leaned on their well-marshalled defence to record successive 1-0 victories over two of the division’s bottom three, Sheffield United and Fulham, in their last pair of Premier League outings, and the host’s chances of taking something from the game against the Clarets will hinge on that same rearguard staying strong.
Burnley meanwhile, are reeling following a run of three straight defeats, and Sean Dyche’s men are hovering perilously close to the drop zone, one place and six points clear of it with half a dozen matches to play.
A draw at Wolves on Sunday could prove a useful result for the Clarets in their push for safety and our 1-1 correct score prediction tips Burnley to claim a much-needed share of the spoils.
That was the scoreline in two of the last three encounters between the teams, while under 2.5 goals have been notched in four of their last five Premier League skirmishes.
With Wolves short on match-winners and Burnley among the division’s lowest scoring-teams, bettors are advised to stick to that under 2.5 goals market for what should develop into a game of few chances in the West Midlands.
