Watford vs Burnley Preview, Tips and Odds

Watford will entertain Burnley at the weekend at Vicarage Road. Both sides are on good form and undefeated in their last four games. The Hornets are sitting just outside top 6 and they are sure for another season in the topflight. On the other hand, Burnley managed to escape from the drop zone with their recent performances, but are still very close, with just 3 points separating them from 18th placed Newcastle.

Worth mentioning: Watford have not kept a clean sheet in their last five home games and have managed just one in their last ten home outings. Burnley won their meeting with Fulham 2:1 without having a single shot on target, but have to be very grateful to the Fulham players, who scored two own goals. They are on their best form of the season so far, having recorded 4 consecutive wins, but still have to work hard, as they have the second worst defence in the entire league behind only Fulham with 43 conceded.
