Burnley v Brighton Hove Albion Preview, Championship, Sunday 22nd November 2015

Burnley head into this game having had a good start from their opening sixteen matches played and currently occupy 4th position in the championship league table. The hosts have won nine and lost two during this period and although they face a tough looking task against Brighton on Sunday afternoon, both the fans and players will be confident of getting at least something from this game as they have only lost one of their last thirteen matches played.

Brighton head into the game having also had a good opening sixteen matches and they currently occupy 2nd place in the championship league table. The visitors have lost just once in their last eighteen matches played and still remain the only club unbeaten in the league and no doubt their fans and players will also be confident of securing something from this match to take back home with them come Sunday afternoon.

Burnley Team News:

The hosts look likely to remain unchanged for this match as Burnley boss Sean Dyche has stuck with the same starting eleven for the last four matches. Both Ashley Barnes and Lukas Jutkiewicz remain unavailable as they continue to recover from knee injuries.

Brighton Hove Albion Team News:

The visitors will be without striker Sam Baldock for this game having suffered a thigh injury in the 2-1 victory against MK Dons last time out. Kazenga LuaLua is also unlikely to feature as he still recovers from a groin injury.

The good news for Brighton fans however is that skipper Gordon Greer is now available having fully recovered from a knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines for over a month and he looks likely to take up his place in the heart of the Brighton defence.

Burnley v Brighton Hove Albion Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday’s lunch time game from Turf Moor will become the 17th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Burnley have won 5 times overall, 3 of those victories having came with home advantage. Brighton have also managed 5 victories overall with 2 of those having came away from home.

As we can see from our head to head statistics table below, which shows the last five meetings between the two clubs, it has been Brighton Hove Albion who have had the better results over recent season’s having won three times with Burnley having won just the once.

28/01/14 CHA Burnley – Brighton Hove Albion
0 : 0
24/08/13 CHA Brighton Hove Albion – Burnley
2 : 0
23/02/13 CHA Brighton Hove Albion – Burnley 1 : 0
01/09/12 CHA Burnely – Brighton Hove Albion 1 : 3
06/04/12 CHA Burnley – Brighton Hove Albion 1 : 0

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

31 Goals have been scored in the previous 16 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 1.94.

19 of those Goals have came in the 8 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 between 1 or 2 goals scored and betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals  and Both Teams to Score look the best options from a betting point of view on the goals market.

Burnely have a slight advantage on the recent form statistics as they have won three and drawn two of their previous five matches played, compared to Brighton who have won two and drawn three of their previous five matches played, but there really is very little between the two sides in this one.

Burnley v Brighton Hove Albion Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Based on all the facts represented in this preview above, this game is probably the toughest live match this weekend to make a confident prediction from as not only are both clubs having a great season so far, they both head into this game with good unbeaten runs going and it really is impossible to say which of these two clubs are going to come away as the winners come Sunday afternoon.

However, with games as tight as this one, the most sensible option is to look at other betting markets and the one that does stand out for me is the goals market as with only one previous meeting in the last five having seen more than two goals scored, my Banker Free Tip for this match has to be Under 2.5 Goals.

As for my First Goalscorer Free Tip, well again this is also a bit of a lottery, but I have decided to go with the statistics here and opt for Burnley striker Andre Gray to open up the scoring in the game for his side.
