Premier League Friday 11th August 2023 Burnley vs Manchester City, 9pm (CEST)

The Premier League new season (2023/24) kicks-off this Friday with the champions Manchester City travelling to newly-promoted Burnley, who are back in the top-flight after two years in the Championship.

We’ll also see an intriguing sub-plot to the match with former popular Manc City player – Vincent Kompany – the Burnley manager.

The sides last met in the FA Cup during the 2023 season, with City winning that game 2-0, with the last Premier League head-to-head in 2022 and also ending 2-0 to City.

In fact, City have now won the last 3 league clashes 2-0, so this scoreline at 7.00 has to be on the radar.

The match betting sees a familiar look with Man City on the table at 1.30, with the draw 6.00 and Burnley 8.00 to get their season off with an upset.

Another popular outcome when these sides have met is for City to win ‘to nil’ – this has paid out in the last 7 head-to-heads and can be backed at 2.00.

City have also lost just ONE of their last 31 matches in all competitions against Burnley, with the Clarets having last scored vs City 8 games ago (2019).

Other betting options that might appeal are Over 2.5 Goals at 1.61 as this has paid out in 16 of the last 22, while both teams DIDN’T score in 10 of the last 11 meetings and can be backed at 1.70.

Finally, with Haaland scoring a hat-trick when the sides met in the FA Cup last season, he’s sure to be popular as always in the scoring markets. Burnley’s main man last season was Nathan Tella, who fired in 17 league goals.

Overall, it’s a game that City will be fully expected to hit the ground running in. The 1.30 on them winning is a tad short though so we’re happy to side with both teams NOT to score @ 1.70 – a bet that’s paid out in 91% of the last 11 meetings.
