Leicester vs West Brom
England Premier League
Date: Thursday, 22 April 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: King Power Stadium.
Leicester City will host West Bromwich Albion in one of the most interesting games of the 32nd round in Premier League.
The match has a massive significance for both outfits who are fighting separate battles.
The hosts will be desperate to rebound from back-to-back league defeats, while the visitors will hope to maintain their shockingly good form after impressive victories over Chelsea and Southampton.
The Foxes have out their Champions League ambitions to jeopardize after losing the last two league outings to Manchester City and West Ham United. They are now only one point above 4th-placed West Ham and two points adrift of the 5th-placed Chelsea.
It is crystal clear that Brendan Rodgers’ men can ill afford any more slip-ups in the remaining six rounds if they are to avoid further complications in the battle for the top-four finish.
Leicester vs West Brom Head-to-head
- WBA have been the more successful side historically, winning 36 and losing 26 of 77 encounters with the Foxes.
- However, Leicester Ci9ty dominated this match-up in recent years. They’ve put seven goals past the Baggies in the last two wins in H2H clashes.
- Both teams scored in seven of the last nine head to head affairs.
Leicester vs West Brom Prediction
West Bromwich Albion have been among the worst teams in the division throughout most of the season.
Nevertheless, Sam Allardyce seems to have managed to find the winning formula as the Baggies looked just amazing in the last two rounds. They’ve scored five goals past Chelsea (one of the best defensive teams in the division) and three past Southampton in the last two rounds.
Since Leicester City have been anything but meticulous defensively of late (shipped five goals in the last two league defeats to Manchester City and West Ham), we would not be surprised at all to see the Baggies on the scoresheet here.
On the other side, all eyes will be on Kelechi Iheanacho who scored ten goals in the last seven appearances for the Foxes in all competitions.
Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score is by far the best betting option for this match. You can go for it at the odds of 2.50. Alternatively, we will back WBA to score two or more goals at sky-high 4.50 odds.
