EPL: Wolves vs Burnley




Wolves will welcome Burnley on Wednesday night, within the framework of round 14 of the Premier League to find a victory to help them be in the group for the European Cup. Against an opponent who is in very bad form from the beginning of the season and is also standing in a dangerous area. There are too many fulcrums for “Wolves” to easily complete the 3-point goal.

Wolves had just had a game that was underpowered and let rookie Norwich hold 0-0 at Carrow Road. Even if it weren’t for the luck and excellence of goalkeeper Jose Sa, it is possible that Wolves would have left empty-handed. Without victory, the “Wolves” let the first group continue to widen the gap. Currently, the home team of Molineux Stadium is in 6th place in the standings. They brought back 20 points through 13 rounds, of which Wolves won 6, drew 2 and lost 5. Being 3 points behind Arsenal, the opportunity for Wolves to compete for a ticket to the European Cup next season is very open. . The schedule also favors Wolves, when this round Arsenal will face Man Utd and the possibility of “Gunners” losing points is very high.

In contrast, Wolves’ opponent is just Burnley who is in very bad form from the beginning of the season. This is the period when teacher and coach Bruno Lage played quite stably. Considering only the last 8 rounds, Wolves lost exactly 1 match against Crystal Palace, the rest drew 2 and won 5. In the defeats of Wolves, there are very unpleasant names like Everton or West Ham. Especially at home, Wolves have won the last 3 consecutive victories. This team does not own a highly rated attack and only opened 12 goals from the beginning of the tournament. In return, Wolves’ defense played very disciplined and conceded only 12 times.

Although the attack played excellently and opened fire to 3 goals against Crystal Palace. However, on a bad defensive day, Burnley also conceded the same number and let the opponent hold 3-3 at home. Thus, in 2 consecutive rounds Burnley had 1 point to leave the field, before that they excellently held Chelsea 1-1 at Stamford Bridge. In the last 5 rounds Burnley only lost 1 match against Man City, the rest drew 3 and won 1. This is the period when Burnley played the most stable since the beginning of the season. However, after 12 rounds, Burnley only won 1, drew 6 and received 5 defeats. Currently with a meager 9 points, the away team is stuck in the group holding the red light with the 18th position on the table.

They are just 3 points behind Leeds and play less than 1 match, if they beat Wolves, of course Burnley will temporarily escape the relegation group. However, that is a very unlikely scenario, because the 6 away matches from the beginning of the season Burnley drew 3 and lost 3. This team is also playing very bad defense, when the last 4/6 matches they have conceded from 2 tables. Considering the head-to-head record, Burnley will be a little more confident when they have won Wolves both times last season. Burnley only lost 1 but won 5 after 10 recent clashes with Wolves. Of course that’s just a story of the past, in the current situation Burnley can hardly make a story at Molineux Stadium.
