Prediction and betting advice for Burnley vs. Birmingham City on December 27th 2022

Burnley will host Birmingham City at Turf Moor on Tuesday in another round of EFL Championship football.

The home side have enjoyed a brilliant campaign and will fancy themselves promotion favorites as they head into the second half of the season. They picked up a 3-1 comeback win over Middlesbrough in their last league game via a quickfire double from Manuel Benson and an own goal midway through the second half.

Burnley sit atop the league standings with 47 points from 23 games. They will now be looking to continue their good run of form in the competition and strengthen their hold at the top.

Birmingham City have had mixed results this season but remain on the hunt for the playoff spots. They beat Reading 3-2 last time out via first-half strikes from team captain Troy Deeney and Tahith Chong before their opponents scored two consolation goals late in the game.

The visitors have picked up 32 points from 23 games this season and currently sit ninth in the Championship standings. They will aim to build on their latest results and continue their push up the table.
