League leaders Burnley host Watford on Tuesday night in a clash between two of the biggest teams in the Championship.Burnley Form Guide
We may have plenty of football left this season, but Burnley are already looking certain for promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt. They have been in excellent form recently, showing no signs of slowing down. They are seven points clear of Sheffield United in second, and 17 points clear of Middlesbrough in third, it seems a matter of time before they are promoted.
Last weekend, Burnley recorded a 3-0 home win over Preston, and that was their second 3-0 win in a row, after beating Norwich by the same scoreline the week earlier. In their last six games, they've managed to not only win them all, but keep four clean sheets too, as they continue to show their strength at both ends of the field.Watford Form Guide
Watford are in the promotion hunt, and come into the games this week hanging onto the final playoff spot, 6th position. However, they have not been in good form recently, and come here on the back of a run of four games without a win. They've been picking up points, as three of those games were draws, but that isn't good enough if they want promotion.
Watford recorded a draw last weekend, a game that ended 1-1 at home to Blackburn. The week before that, they had another draw, this time a 2-2 draw away at Reading. There are many teams in the playoff hunt, the pack are closing and Watford have to turn those draws into wins, if they want to stay in the playoffs.Match Prediction
Given the form Burnley are in, it is impossible to go against them and that is the case again here. They are flying, scoring for fun and defending well too, and look to have too much for Watford. Their opponents are not in the best form right now, with too many draws, and Burnley can take advantage of that by winning this one.
