Burnley to Win and Lead at Half Time

There is little doubt about Burnley earning promotion back to Premier League at this point and even them finishing top seems like a foregone conclusion, but the team is still motivated to prove themselves.

On the other hand, Wigan is at the bottom of the standings in Championship right now, but they still have a chance to stay up. Still, with Burnley hosting this game, we don't see the guests doing well. So, our first Burnley vs Wigan prediction is for Burnley to win the match after leading at half time.

Burnley vs Wigan Preview: Potential Lineups, Team News and Latest Form

If you want to learn more about these two teams ahead of their duel, including possible Burnley vs Wigan lineups, you are in right place:

Burnley

It's been a great season for Burnley as the team is currently at the top of Championship, where they've been for most of the season. Not only that, but they are seventeen points ahead of the third team in the standings with eleven rounds to go, so unless they mess things up spectacularly, we will be seeing Burnley in Premier League again from next season.

Meanwhile, the team is currently without injured Josh Brownhill, Ian Maatsen, Darko Churlinov, Benson Manuel, Jay Rodriguez, and Taylor Harwood-Bellis.

Burnley Predicted Lineup:

Muric – Roberts, Ekdal, Beyer, Vitinho – Cork, Cullen – Tella, Gudmundsson, Zaroury – Barnes

Wigan

Although they only lost twice in the last six games in the league, Wigan also only has one win in that span, along with three draws. Also, the team is without a win in the last five matches in Championship. Overall, Wigan collected 32 points from 35 games so far, which puts them in the last place and six points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone.

On the bright side, only Martin Kelly and Jason Kerr are on the team's injury list at this time.

Wigan Predicted Lineup:

Amos – Hughes, Rekik, Bennett – Darikwa, Power, Naylor, McClean – Keane, Sinani – Fletcher

Player to Watch: Anass Zaroury

Given that we can see Burnley getting the win in this match, our player to watch is Anass Zaroury, one of the most consistent performers for the team this season, even though a few other players have also impressed so far.

The young Moroccan forward managed to score six goals and notch four assists in twenty five appearances in Championship, so Wigan should be wary of him ahead of their duel.
