Leicester vs Brighton Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Tuesday, 23 June 2020. Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes have made it a mission to finish in one of the podium spots this season. But the reinvigorated Chelsea might give them a lot of troubles down the lane. On that account, it’s important that they deliver a win this Tuesday.
However, the fact that they are about to take on a relegation-battler, might be a bigger problem that it appears to be. The season is about to end, and teams in lower tier are playing as if their very lives depended on it.
Likely, do not at all expect an easy game for the Foxes this game week. Still, they do have a great h2h record against this rival, and at the same time, the Seagulls have been a total disaster on the road lately. As such, expect Leicester to narrowly scrape through with a win.
Leicester vs Brighton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 0-2 win for the Foxes on the road.

- It’s been six years since the Seagulls have won against this rival.
- Eight of the past ten wins had gone to the Foxes.
- The Foxes have a 100% unbeaten record in Premier League fixtures, and it would have been a 100% winning record if not for a single draw.
Leicester vs Brighton: Prediction
The Foxes were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Watford. It was a rather painful result for the guests, as they had scored the first goal of the game in the 90th minute, only for Watford to equalize it in the 90+3rd minute.
In the meantime, the Seagulls recorded a 2-1 win at home over Arsenal the past match-day. Nicolas Pepe had slotted in the first goal of the game in the 68th minute. However, the hosts equalized seven minutes later, and fired in the winner in the 90+5th minute.
As things stand, the Foxes have the upper hand. They are already hurt by a relegation-battler (Watford), and will not repeat the same mistake again.
Moreover, they have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival in PL games, and it would have been a 100% winning record if not for a single draw. And at this venue, the Foxes have a 100% winning record in Premier League fixtures, and have scored two or more goals in all of those games as well.
In addition, since August, the Seagulls have a total of one win on the road, and they do not have a single such win in the whole of 2020. On the other hand, the Foxes have a 100% unbeaten record at home in the past 14 months, excluding losses against Liverpool, Manchester City and Southampton.
Considering these stats, it’s deduced that Leicester are about to deliver a dominating performance this Tuesday.
