Premier League: Burnley vs Newcastle - Betting Preview

Burnley vs Newcastle takes place on Tuesday, May 22nd, at Turf Moor Stadium, home of Southampton. This will be the 38th and last league match for both teams.

With only 35 points in 37 games played, Burnley are currently 17th in the standings, the first team out of relegation zone. 18th-placed Leeds United presently have the same 35 points in 37 matches. Therefore, a win on Sunday is enough for Burnley to avoid relegation. Burnley might secure the 17th position even with a loss, if Leeds lose their match.

Five Burnley players will not be available for Sunday's decisive match against Newcastle United: Gudmundsson, Pieters, Mee, Westwood, and Rodriguez, all of them injured. As a result, Burnley will not be able to play all their best players this Sunday.

Newcastle United are currently 12th in the Premier League table, with 46 points in 37 matches. The club will not be relegated, but also will not qualify for continental tournaments. Though this season has been somewhat disappointing, Newcastle have already started building the squad for next season. There are high expectations for the future of Newcastle.

Four Newcastle players will not be able to play this Sunday: Willock, Shelvey, Wood and Manquillo. Newcastle are not fighting for any relevant spot right now. Because of this, the amount of injured players will not be a big problem.

Under 2.5 goals were scored in 5 of the last 7 times Newcastle and Burnley played each other. Under 2.5 goals were scored in six out of last eight games played by Burnley.

We believe under 2.5 goals will be scored this Sunday.

Tip: Under 2.5 goals – odds: 1.90

A good score prediction for this match would be a 1-1 draw
