Burnley v Lincoln City Preview, FA Cup 5th Round, 18th February 2017

Burnley head into this game Saturday afternoon having had an average season so far on the domestic front in the premiership and currently occupy 12th position in the league table with 30pts having secured 9 wins, 3 draws and 13 defeats from their 25 matches played.

The hosts made it through to this 5th round tie after beating Bristol City in the previous round 2-0 at Turf Moor and will be confident of progressing through to the next phase of the tournament having home advantage again for this game where they have been playing their best football this season.

Lincoln City head into the game having had an excellent season so far in the national league where they currently lead the way at the top of the league table with 64pts having secured 20 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats from their 30 matches played.

The visitors made it through to this 5th round lucrative tie after beating championship side Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 at home and both the players and the fans will no doubt be confident about their chances of causing yet another big upset come Saturday afternoon.

Burnley Team News:

Burnley are without Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick for the tie.

Brady is cup-tied having played for Norwich earlier in the competition, while Hendrick serves the second match of a three-game suspension.

Steven Defour (hamstring) is still out and Johann Berg Gudmundsson is fit to return, while Jon Flanagan, James Tarkowski, Tendayi Darikwa, Scott Arfield and Sam Vokes can all expect recalls.

Lincoln City Team News:

Lincoln, meanwhile, have no fresh injury problems but Lee Beevers remains out with a long-term knee injury.

Having missed the fourth-round tie with parent club Brighton due to ineligibility, Joe Ward is available again but fellow on-loan winger Josh Ginnelly is cup-tied.

2 of those Goals have came in the 1 previous matches played at Turf Moor and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of exactly 2.00.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to suggest that this game should see at least a couple of goals scored on Saturday afternoon and the betting market Total Goals 2 or 3 looking a good option to get on for this game.

Burnley v Lincoln City Match Betting Odds Market

Burnley are the clear odds on favourites to win this game on Saturday afternoon at a current best price of 1/3 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Matched Bonus Bets when Registering a New Account, which obviously should not come as too much of a surprise to anyone as they do play their domestic football four leagues higher than their hosts.

The Draw is currently a best price of 19/4 with BetFred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets Registering a New Account and although unlikely to happen, with Lincoln City having such a great season so far and both previous encounters between the two clubs having finished all square, it could be a very sensible decision to get something on this one ending up all square.

Lincoln City are not given much chance at all of causing what would come as a huge upset in this game as their current odds on offer of 21/2 with BetVictor – Bet £10 & Receive £60 Free Bets & Spins when Registering a New Account clearly suggest.

Burnley v Lincoln City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Burnley can book their place into the quarter finals of the FA Cup with a victory in this game on Saturday afternoon in front of their home fans and although the club has not quite achieved their goals in the league this season, they do have great chance to make it through to the next round of the tournament and then just be one game away from making it to Wembley Stadium for the semi finals !

As such I expect the manager to play his strongest lineup for this game and the players and fans will no doubt be confident of obtaining the victory going up against non league opposition who play their domestic league football four divisions lower !

However, this is the FA Cup after all and we have already seen quite a few big shocks in this tournament, most notably Brighton & Hove Albion getting knocked out in the previous round by Lincoln City and although the non-league side will be the huge under-dogs for this game, every player that takes to the pitch wearing a Lincoln City shirt in this game on Saturday afternoon will have the belief and hope that they can once against cause what would be a huge upset in this tournament.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Burnley -1.5 Asian Handicap as I am expecting the hosts to win this game by at least a two goal margin in this one.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Burnley Striker Andre Gray to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as going up against a non league defence, he won’t get a better chance to score some goals in a game.
