Wolverhampton vs Burnley: prediction for the EPL fixture
Wolverhampton were knocked out of the League Cup in the very first match: they lost to the more experienced Tottenham. Now the Wolves can fully focus on the Premier League, where they have looked solid so far.
Bruno Lage's charges chalked up six victories and two draws, which brought them 20 points. The Wanderers are currently 6th in the standings, only three points behind the European club competiton zone. After a win over West Ham (1:0), the Orange-Blacks drew with Norwich (0:0).
Boly, Bueno, Jonny, Mosquera, and Neto are out injured. Neves has been suspended, and Podence is in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19.
Burnley's main task for the season is to retain the residence in the Premier League. They are currently in 18th place with just 9 points, but the Clarets have a game in hand: on Sunday their match against Tottenham was postponed due to heavy snowfall.
In 12 rounds, Sean Dyche's charges recorded only one victory - a month ago, they defeated Brentford (3:1). The last two fixtures were tied: Burnley drew with Chelsea (1:1) and Crystal Palace (3:3).
Burnley will be without Tarkowski, Westwood, andBarnes.

We expect a tight game in the centre of the pitch. Both sides will try to avoid mistakes on the defensive, so we doubt there will be more than two goals scored in this fixture.
Second bet - total under 2.5 goals
