Burnley vs Sheffield United Predictions and Betting Tips



Burnley and Sheffield go head-to-head in the second round of the Carabao Cup in what is expected to be a tight match-up. Given that this would be Burnley's first competitive match of the 2020/2021 season, will they be able to start with a positive result?

Both sides clashed for the first time in the top-flight last season in what turned out to be exciting matches. Although they couldn't be separated in the first leg, The Blades came out atop in the second. This would be only the second win for Sheffield United against the Clarets in nine meetings, most of which were in the Championship.

Burnley look to start off on the right foot

Burnley have now established themselves as a Premier League side as they would be heading into their seventh season as a top-flight team. However, the immediate goal for Sean Dyche is for this side to put more consistency into their work and maybe pushing for one of those European spots. However, taking into account their quietness in the transfer market, this would be a big ask for the Clarets.

Burnley would be keen on doing better than their performance in the 2019/2020 season as they lost disappointingly to League 1 side Sunderland at this same stage.

The Blades keen on restoring confidence

Sheffield United following that fantastic season back with the big boys will be keen on replicating those performances. Chris Wilder's outfit managed a 9th place finish at the first time of asking much to the delight of their supporters. Although they didn't start the new season as they would have liked, we fully expect them to be a team to watch this season.

The Blades, just like their opponents, were also knocked out by Sunderland last term but in the third round. They would be looking towards topping that performance but will need to start off with a win.
