Huddersfield vs Leicester City
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Huddersfield officially became the first team to suffer a relegation to Championship football. They are mathematically out with 19 points between the Terriers and the safe zone and six games left to play. Local fans will thus have three more matches to enjoy watching their team in the elite. The first is scheduled for Saturday afternoon when Leicester City come to visit The John Smith’s Stadium.
The visitors head into the game as heavy form favourites. They caught just the wanted under the new manager Brendan Rodgers who instantly found the winning formula. The Foxes won three on the spin in the Premier League and this fixture against the relegated Huddersfield Town side should really provide them with a great chance to keep such stellar run going this weekend.
Huddersfield vs Leicester City: Head-to-head
Huddersfield have a positive head to head record with the Foxes historically, but most of their wins date back to 1970s.
Leicester City were the dominant force in the most recent history of this match-up.
The Foxes won four and drew one of last five ties against Huddersfield Town.
Leicester City claimed an easy straightforward 3-1 victory when they hosted the Terriers in the first part of the season in mid-September last year.
Huddersfield vs Leicester City: Prediction
Jamie Vardy was one of the main catalysts for Leicester’s rise in form under Brendan Rodgers. The English talisman bagged five goals in last five appearances for the Foxes and he should plenty of space to deliver here past the weakest team in the division.
Huddersfield Town conceded eight goals in last three league defeats to the likes of Bournemouth, West Ham and Crystal Palace. We can’t imagine them stopping the in-form Leicester City side here as backing the away win is a must at the odds of 1.72.
Parallel to this, Jamie Vardy is absolutely worth backing to score anytime at the odds of 2.30.
