A quick peek at the odds suggests anything but a win for Burnley will come as a surprise when they take on Luton at Turf Moor this coming Saturday in the Championship.

Burnley booked their first win of the season in the Championship as they claimed all three points in the opener.Luton failed in their attempt to get the new season underway with a win, as they only managed to split the points in the premiere.

It is early days yet, anything can happen and both Burnley and Luton are still highly motivated of getting off to a good start. They both have talented squads, and we expect a cracking affair at Turf Moor as the teams look to get one over each other.

Burnley only average a modest 1.3 goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored 13 goals. They also conceded five for an average of 0.5 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring six times.

Luton are currently not the most scoring team in the Championship, as they only found the back of the net six times in ten matches. This is an average of just 0.6 goals a game in which they conceded 13 times, an average of 1.3 per game. They managed four clean sheets in of these.

Burnley vs Luton Preview

Burnley claimed a middle-of-the-road three wins in their previous six matches on home soil in the Championship. They also drew three but remained undefeated, as they scored five and conceded two goals.

While a title battle is perhaps a long shot, a top 3 finish does not look beyond Burnley, should they catch some strong momentum in this early phase of the campaign.

Luton claimed two wins against one draw and three defeats in their last six away matches in the Championship. The scoreline from these matches reads 12 goals conceded and five scored.

In a season where everything runs absolutely smoothly Luton might be able to surprise. However, a finish inside the top half of the Championship looks the most realistic scenario.

Burnley and Luton are mostly leaning towards matches shy on goals, as it seems that not conceding is more important than attempting to score. This indicates a close encounter is on the menu on Saturday.
