Burnley to Win

With ten wins in a row in Championship, Burnley is absolutely dominating this season and unless a miracle happens, they will be right back to Premier League just one year after getting relegated.

Meanwhile, Watford is barely in the playoff zone, in the sixth place, but they have the quality to put up a fight against Burnley. Still, with Burnley hosting the game and being so dominant, it's hard to look past them in this match, so our first Burnley vs Watford prediction is for Burnley to win the game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the previous four h2h meetings between Burnley and Watford have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case again on Tuesday evening.

However, Burnley did average 2.90 goals per game in Championship so far, which is the second-highest average in the league. On the other hand, Watford averaged just 2.29 goals per game in the league this season, which bodes well for our prediction.

Burnley – Watford Preview: Team News, Recent Form, and Possible Lineups

You check out all the important facts and figures and our predicted Burnley vs Watford lineups right here:

Burnley

Not many teams have dominated in Championship as Burnley is dominating this season. After all, Burnley has now won ten games in a row, which is a truly impressive streak for this league. Overall, they are sitting at the top of the standings seven points clear of Sheffield and seventeen points ahead of Middlesbrough, so they would have to botch things spectacularly not to earn promotion this season.

Meanwhile, the team is currently missing Benson Manuel, Jay Rodriguez, and Taylor Harwood-Bellis through injuries.

Burnley Predicted Lineup:

Muric – Roberts, Beyer, Ekdal, Maatsen – Brownhill, Cork – Tella, Gudmundsson, Zaroury – Rodriguez

Watford

In the last six games in the league, Watford has two wins, three draws, and one loss, so they've done relatively well recently. However, they will need to keep that up or do even better if they want to stay in the playoff zone come the end of the season as they are currently sixth in the standings, but a few other teams are very close to them.

The team is currently dealing with an injury crisis as well, with seven players on their injury list, including some key players like Craig Cathcart, Francisco Sierralta, Edo Kayembe, and Tom Dele-Bashiru.

Watford Predicted Lineup:

Bachmann – Gaspar, Hoedt, Porteous, Kamara – Louza, Choudhury – Sarr, Pedro, Martins – Assombalonga

Championship Standings

Player to Watch: Nathan Tella

When a team has been so dominant in all areas of the game like Burnley was so far this season, it's tough to choose one player to single out, but we choose Nathan Tella as our player to watch against Watford.

The young English winger has been pretty consistent this season and he managed to score twelve goals and add to assists in his 27 appearances for Burnley in Championship.
