Burnley picked up their fourth draw of the season last weekend as they drew 2-2 with Southampton thanks to a Maxwel Cornet brace. They are 18th this season and look set for a season of battling against relegation. At Turf Moor, the Clarets have not won a league game since January 27th which is a run of 14 fixtures.
Brentford have suffered back-to-back league defeats going down 2-1 at home to Leicester last weekend despite a Zanka goal. The London side will be delighted with their start to the campaign though as they sit 12th on 12 points. Away from Griffin Park, the Bees are unbeaten this season with two victories and two draws.
Burnley vs Brentford: Match Stats
Both teams to score has happened in four of the last seven Burnley league games and three of the last four for Brentford and that looks to be the best bet here. Both teams have attacking players in form but defences that are conceding goals.
Maxwel Cornet was suggested last week as a value goalscorer and he did the business with two goals. He continues to be priced too highly by the bookmakers as he looks a real top class talent.
