Key Burton vs MK Dons Predictions

In-form Brewers will host the winless Dons on the 7th of May at Pirelli Stadium. Who’ll emerge victorious? Find out in our key Burton vs MK Dons betting tips below! For more best football tips for today, go to our designated page.

Under 2.5 Goals

How can we possibly expect three or more goals when the Brewers were close to earning a clean sheet over League One frontrunners Plymouth Argyle last week? The Pilgrims pipped Burton 1-0 last week but coach Dino Maamria can’t fault his boys for their effort.

Five of the eight games between the two sides ended with under 2.5 goals so if Sunday’s brawl ends with a lackluster 1-1 or even a bore 0-0, no eyebrows should be raised.

Draw

In their second back-to-back game at Pirelli Stadium, Burton Albion will surely try to give MK Dons a run for their money. The visitors haven’t been the same this season, and despite their reputation as the more prolific team, we give the edge to Burton. A draw will be received as a positive result in both camps so perhaps our Burton vs MK Dons prediction will be appreciated by both camps.

The head-to-head difference between these two is not all that great. Eight games were played, MK Dons won four times, two games ended in draws, and Burton poached the three points on two occasions. However, the Brewers’ momentum evens out the odds and a draw is exactly what you should expect from Sunday’s brawl.

Burton Albion’s odds stand at 21/10 (3.10) and we feel the Brewers deserve more recognition.

Burton vs MK Dons Lineups & Team News

Burton

With a defensive-oriented 3-4-2-1 lineup, the Brewers couldn’t fend off Plymouth Argyle’s sensational attacking force last week. The 1-0 Pilgrims win on the 29th of April sure didn’t come easy but it eventually did as right on the stroke of halftime, Niall Ennis bagged a lovely goal to turn one point into three which definitely made coach Steven Schumacher happy.

Predicted lineup – MacGillivray (GK), Brayford, Hughes, Moon, Ashworth, Powell, Shaughnessy, Oshilaja, Helm, Latty-Fairweather & Walker

MK Dons

Point-hungry Dons went all-out versus Barnsley last week and they sure deserved their point. The 4-4 tie at Stadium MK gave us some League One box-office moments as the 22 on the pitch produced top-notch stuff. Given the fact that the Dons were so aggressive in that brawl, we have faith that our Burton vs MK Dons prediction will be safe on Sunday.

Predicted lineup – Cumming (GK), Kaikai, O’Hora, Tucker, Lewington, Watson, McEachran, Grant, Maghoma, Leko & Eisa

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced 1hr before the kick-off

Player to Watch: Mohamed Eisa

The Dons needed a hero versus Barnsley last week and Mohamed Eisa wasted no time to step up. He bagged two extremely important goals. His brace was a decisive factor in the 4-4 tie against Barnsley and the point that was won on the 29th of April could prove to be invaluable.

Mo Eisa is MK Dons’ top goalscorer this season. With nine goals to his name, he’s proving his worth with each passing week. If the Dons secure salvation, coach Mark Jackson will owe a debt of gratitude to his goalscorer-in-chief.
