Burnley - Manchester United: prediction "under 2.5"

Burnley meet Manchester United in a match of the 24th round of the Premier League. Over the weekend, the Wine Reds drew 0-0 with Watford and continue to take last place in the standings. Despite his superiority and the greater number of positions created, Burnley did not overcome the defense of the "Hornets". It is noteworthy that four of the last seven games of the Wine Reds in the Premier League ended in a draw.

Manchester United beat West Ham 1-0 two weeks ago, making them fourth in the standings. The only goal came at the end of the match after an accurate shot by Marcus Rashford in the 93rd minute. However, if Arsenal and Tottenham win their postponed matches, the Red Devils will be ahead. The fact is that Manchester United has stabilized its performance compared to the difficult period at the end of the stay of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but there is still something to be desired.

On Friday night, United dropped out of the FA Cup after being removed from Middlesbrough on penalties. However, they could not be reached at all, as the Red Devils had to have an advance of at least three or four goals at the break instead of just one. In the second half Middlesbrough equalized the game and with a slightly controversial goal still tied for 1: 1 in the 64th minute. By the end of regular time, United re-created the cleaner positions, but never scored a winning goal.

I expect a very similar match between the two teams on Tuesday night. United easily beat Burnley at Old Trafford, but then they were lucky that Nick Pope was not under the door to win 3: 1. Ralph Rangnik may stabilize the performance in defense, but in attack United has problems against tight defenses. This season Burnley do not allow many goals, which is another prerequisite for not getting a successful match. The line of 2.5 goals has been skipped in only 3 of the 8 households of the Wine Reds so far.
