Everton vs Leicester City Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Wednesday, 1 July 2020. Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the Goodison Park.
After their impressive performances earlier in the season, the Foxes have dropped the ball a bit in this final phase.
As of now, they have just a single-point lead over Chelsea (who is in much better form), and have only a three-point lead over the Wolves, who are determined to qualify for the CL.
The Foxes will have to perform at any cost in these remaining games, if they have to not see their earlier hard work go down the drain.
Meanwhile, the Toffees are placed in the mid-table at the moment. However, the final European spot is just four points away for them, and the team will surely be going after it. The ban for Manchester City from UEFA has opened up a lot of opportunities for the teams below.
Considering the objective both teams have in mind, along with the goal-fests the earlier h2h clashes have turned into – expect either squad to slot in at least a goal this Wednesday.
Everton vs Leicester: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ten of the prior thirteen encounters had three or more goals.
- 17 of the preceding 22 games had goals from both teams.
- The former nine PL fixtures did not have a single draw.
- Since 1999, not once have the guests failed to score at this venue.
- Ten of the past eleven match-ups at this ground had goals from both teams, as well as three or more goals.
Everton vs Leicester: Prediction
The Toffees recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Norwich. The guests did expect a huge scoreline, but was satisfied nonetheless with the three points.
In the meantime, the Foxes were held to a goalless draw the past league game week, at home, by Brighton.
As things stand, either team desperately needs the points, and there will be added pressure due to the final phase of the season having been started. Moreover, whenever these two have locked horns, it’s almost always turned into high-scoring thrillers.
With the added pressure, this upcoming encounter surely could present a lot of goals for the fans watching at home. It also deserves to be mentioned that ten of the preceding eleven h2h encounters at this venue had goals from both teams as well as three or more goals.
Moreover, the Foxes have not failed to score at this venue since 1999, and in the last 21 years, only twice have the Toffees failed to score two or more goals at this ground in h2h clashes.
Considering these observations, expect another goal-fest this Wednesday.
