Saturday’s football match at Turf Moor pits together Burnley and Southampton, the two teams who were beaten by Leicester City and Tottenham respectively at the weekend. The Clarets made a slow start to the season, and, no doubt, they would be more than satisfied with yet another Premier League survival. Seeing that important midfielder Robbie Brady picked up a knock in the defeat at King Power Stadium, home win should not be considered.

The Saints, on the other hand, were anything but impressive at the back in a 5-2 loss to Tottenham. Both Burnley and Southampton are eager to return to winning ways in the Premier League, but we believe that the visitors are closer to winning the match than the hosts. Seeing that the game will be played behind closed doors, we are tempted to put our money on the Saints, who are eager to get their revenge on the Clarets for back-to-back defeats in the 2019/20 season.

HIGHLIGHTED PLAYER (ROBBIE BRADY):
Robbie Brady is an Irish footballer who plays for Norwich City as a winger, but he is capable of playing at left back as well. Brady began his youth career at St. Kevin’s Boys, where he was spotted by Manchester United scouts. In 2008 he joined the Old Trafford outfit at age 16.
He played for Manchester United U-18 team, but he did not make his debut for the senior team. The Irish footballer played for Hull City on loan in the 2011/2012 and the 2012/2013 Championship campaigns and in January, 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee. Robbie Brady made his Republic of Ireland debut on 8 September, 2012, in a 4-1 win over Oman and it has to be noted that he scored one goal and provided two assists for his teammates in the victory over the Asian team.
He represented the Boys in Green at the 2016 European Championship finals and he scored the winner against Italy that helped the team make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament.
HIGHLIGHTED TEAM (SOUTHAMPTON):
Southampton are an English football club that have been playing their home games at St Mary’s Stadium since 2001. The Saints were based at The Dell in the past and the capacity of Southampton’s new stadium is 32,505. Southampton wear red and white striped shirts and the colour of the team’s away kit is navy and green.
The Saints have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to clinch the FA Cup title back in 1976, while participating in the final of the prestigious competition in 1900, 1902 and 2003. Southampton outplayed Manchester United in the 1976 FA Cup final and that is probably the club’s greatest victory ever.
The club are well known for their football academy and Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is one of the players who began their football carrier at the St. Mary’s Stadium outfit. Southampton’s fiercest rivals are Portsmouth and the two teams square off against each other in the South Coast Derby.
