Sheffield United vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture is a re-arranged game from a few weeks ago that was postponed because of the weather.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Sheffield United were held to a goalless draw at the weekend at Ipswich that saw them further slip away from the top six.  They were the better side on the afternoon but it is now just three victories in their last nine.

Burton picked up a useful point against Bristol City at the weekend in another goalless draw.  Albion were the better team according to the expected goals data and continue to look like being the member of the bottom three most likely to start an escape.

The reverse fixture came in mid-October at the Pirelli Stadium and the Blades won that one 3-1.  Billy Sharp grabbed a brace for the visitors while Leon Clarke also netted once with Matty Palmer scoring for the Brewers.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

I think Burton look good value on the Asian Handicap here and I like the visitors plus 1.0.  This bet pays if Albion win or draw and returns the stake if they lose by one single goal. In just one of the last ten Sheffield United home matches have they won by more than one goal while in just one of their last seven at all grounds have the Brewers lost by more than one goal.

21 of 36 matches the visitors have played this season have been level going into the break so take a little interest on this game to be all-square at half-time

Sheffield United Preview

The Blades have won just one of their last four in the league and three in their last nine as they have dropped out of the top six.  They are five points behind Middlesbrough in sixth though they do have this game in hand.

At Bramall Lane, they have won their last two 2-1 though before that had won just one in seven.  The last five games at their own ground have produced a total of just goals and six of these have come in their last two.

Just one of the last four and three of the last eight Sheffield United league games have seen both teams find the back of the net.  53% of the goals the Yorkshire outfit have netted this season have come in the first-half.

 

Sheffield United Team News

Leon Clarke (hamstring) is a doubt while Paul Coutts (broken leg) is out for the season.

 

Burton Albion Preview

The Brewers have lost just two of their last six fixtures with three of these ending in a draw and one in defeat.  They are looking the side most likely to get out of the bottom three and ahead of this game are two points behind Barnsley in 21st.

Away from the Pirelli Stadium, they are unbeaten in two and have lost just two of their last seven.  Five of the last six they have played on the road have gone over 2.5 goals with two of these going over 4.5.

Burton have failed to find the back of the net in five of their last six at all grounds while keeping a clean sheet in three of these.  No side has been level more at half-time with 21 of their 36 this season being all-square going into the break.

 

Burton Albion Team News

Lucas Akins (unknown), John Brayford and Ben Turner (both calf) are doubts while Willie Miller (knee) is a long-term absentee for the Brewers.
