Watford vs Burnley betting tips: Championship preview, predictions and odds

Friday’s contest should be a closely contested battle between two sides who have made great starts under their new managers and who will both be vying for promotion.

Ismaila Sarr will be the player to keep an eye out for on Friday with the forward having netted from the halfway line in Watford’s last outing against West Brom.

Match preview: Watford vs Burnley

Watford were held to a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday evening.

The Hornets followed up a win on the opening day with a point at the Hawthorns.

Sarr opened the scoring in the Midlands with a stunning strike.

The 24-year-old scored an incredible halfway line goal as he caught David Button off his line.

Watford could face some competition in trying to keep hold of the forward with Leeds United interested.

Rob Edwards had made a strong start to life at Vicarage Road with two strong performances and four points from his first two games.

In the opposite dugout on Friday, he faces another new manager who has made a strong start.

Vincent Kompany is certainly making a quick impression at Burnley with his team looking really good in their first two matches.

The Clarets have joined the majority of the ball in both matches and Kompany’s blueprint is already starting to show.

Burnley started the season with a 1-0 win away at Huddersfield Town, before drawing with Luton Town over the weekend.

Josh Brownhill’s second-half goal against the Hatters earned his side a point.
