Leicester vs Bournemouth
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
Leicester City have bagged two important wins ahead of the International break as they build on their mid-table spot and Brendan Rodgers’ men now host Bournemouth looking for a third in a row, desperate to retain consistency in front of the crowd at King Power Stadium.
Foxes have beaten Fulham 3-1 here and snatched the points at Burnley in two exciting clashes since early March, conceding on both occasions but overpowering the rivals with late goals first from Jamie Vardy and then from Wes Morgan. They will now want more of the same and we expect another exciting mid-table contest on Saturday afternoon.
Bournemouth sit just three points behind the rivals amid a somewhat unpredictable campaign and travel to Leicester with four points in the bag after last two outings, where they snatched all three at Huddersfield and shared the spoils with Newcastle as they conceded a last-minute equalizer at home ground. They’ve been conceding many goals and this has been an obvious woe, which already has them searching for summer goalkeeper signing.
Leicester vs Bournemouth: Head-to-head
Bournemouth bagged a thriller 4-2 win over Leicester in front of the home crowd this term.
Cherries thus ended a streak of three consecutive draws between the sides since May 2017.
Leicester last beat Bournemouth in Championship back in 2013/2014, as Foxes connected a double.
Leicester vs Bournemouth: Prediction
We will now back Leicester to take revenge for the loss suffered at Vitality Stadium and we’ll go for a Home win on Saturday, which comes at 1.80 and looks great value seeing Bournemouth largely struggle for consistency at the back – with a fourth-worst defensive tally this term.
We do feel we’re in for another exciting occasion on the day and we should see goals on both ends once again, after seeing six goals in the sides’ first head-to-head clash this term. We’ll thus also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.66, which feels like buying money for old rope with both sides enjoying such clashes lately as well.
