Expert Betting Tips
The month of February was very energy-consuming for Thomas Tuchel's team. It is not surprising that the Pensioners had a lot of problems against Luton Town from the Championship in their debut match in March. Burnley will be active, and achieving a positive outcome would let Dyche's team finally move up the relegation zone. For this reason, the home team will be serious playing against the Pensioners. Thomas Tuchel will have to make changes to the starting lineup again. Like in the first-round match, Burnley will be able to score against Chelsea as well. You can also consider betting on home plus handicap, despite the disappointing statistics of recent home performances against the Londoners.
