Leicester City vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 15 October 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
Leicester continue to be in free fall mode and now it is a legitimate possibility that they might take part in the relegation dogfight towards the end of the campaign. Crystal Palace have not been anything special so far, but they certainly will try their luck this weekend at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes are placed bottom-most in the table at the moment, and they have a 100% losing record barring a single win, and a draw. And this sole victory came against the newly-promoted Nottingham, who are placed 19th in the table.
Going on, the Foxes also let in the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition. With nine match-days already over, they seem to have built a trend from there is no easy escape.
They will have to wait for miracles if they even want to end up in the mid-table, let alone fight for a European spot.
Meanwhile, Palace did lose three times so far in the tournament – but it needs to be mentioned that the three losses came against titans Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal. Note that these three squads are currently placed in the top-four of the league table.
It appears to me that Leicester are in a deep pit of trouble, and Crystal Palace could really make good use of this opportunity. Count on a hard-fought win for the guests this weekend.

Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Analysis
The Foxes are in such mess that they have a perfect losing record barring just two games, and these two matches came against recently-promoted and struggling teams.
Meanwhile, Palace have a 100% unbeaten record despite going through a tough schedule, and their only defeats so far came against some of the absolutely best teams in the league – and maybe in the whole of Europe.
I expect Crystal Palace to post the three points on the board this weekend. Do also anticipate goals in huge numbers against the struggling defense of the hosts.
