Sheffield Wednesday will have to be cautious when they take on Burton Albion on Tuesday in the Football League Trophy. The last time out, they played a League Two side in the form of Bradford, underestimating them and ending up with a 3-1 thumping. One more very good reason to not underestimate Burton is their performance against Leicester City U21, as they beat the young foxes by four goals to two, in an absolute thriller. Nevertheless, with both sides losing 2 of their last 3 games in all competitions, this League Trophy game comes as a great intervention and opportunity for both clubs to regain their momentum in English football's lower tiers.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Burton Albion Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

The only pattern emerging from the recent forms of both sides is Sheffield Wednesday's frequency of high-scoring fixtures. 5 of the last 6 games for the hosts have ended in over 2.5 goals being scored now. If we look at Burton's recent outings too, 3 of their last away games have seen more than 2 goals being scored (and a minimum of 2 goals in all of them). With neither side having a consistent winning pattern on home and away turf, we would be restrictive about choosing a winner here, but Sheffield Wednesday has a great chance due to their higher tier stature and tad-bit home advantage. Our final prediction for this game will be over 2.5 goals being scored and Sheffield Wednesday winning by 2 goals to one.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Prediction: 2-1

Burton Albion Team News

A good thing about this Burton Albion side is that the players are actually fulfilling their respective roles. Forwards Davis Keillor-Dunn (4) and Victor Adeboyejo (2) have contributed to 6 of the 10 goals scored by the team, and though it has not helped them escape the relegation zone in League One, it is at least a bright spot to look out for. Alongside scoring/creating goals for his teammates, Keillor-Dunn also makes 1.1 key passes every game which is the highest in the camp. When we talk about defending, Burton count on the services of midfielder Terry Taylor, who has made 1.90 interceptions per game on average this season. Taylor, Keillor-Dunn and Adeboyejo will be our three Burton Albion players to watch on Tuesday evening.
