Match details

Burnley v Ipswich Town

FA Cup

Turf Moor, Lancashire, England

8th February, 01:15 a.m.

Preview

EFL Championship table-toppers Burnley are all set to take on League One title contenders Ipswich Town in a replay of their previous meeting at Portman Road.

Burnley, one of the most dominant sides in the Championship, are sitting 18 points clear of the third spot for automatic promotion to the Premier League next season and are almost certain to return back into the English top flight next season.

Ipswich Town, on the other hand, are a strong contender to return to the English second division next season, sitting third in the League One table behind Plymouth and Derby; however, after a four-game winless run under their new manager Kieran, the Suffok-based side will be looking to regain their confidence by defeating Burnley in the fourth round replay.

A fierce meeting that ended in a goalless tie at Portman Road is all set to be decided at Turf Moor. Burnley is missing some of their key players, like Manuel Benson and others, and Ipswich will be aware of that and will be looking to take full advantage with their nearly fit squad. Due to the home advantage and Vincent Kompany’s grit and determination, we think that Burnley are the slight favourites for this match; however, this game could roll out either way.
