Leicester vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
The Foxes are going after a podium spot this weekend. They are currently placed fourth in the table, with 21 points, while the third place is in possession of Chelsea – who have 22 points.
However, the Blues are pitted against the wounded Everton, and this could end in the former dropping points. As such, a great opportunity lies waiting for Brendan Rodgers’s men.
And just as if the stars were aligned for them, they are at home, and are locking horns with the struggling Seagulls.
Graham Potter’s men are placed 16th in the table, and curiously, since getting promoted to the top flight three years back, the team has finished in either the 15th, 16th or 17th spots. Talk about consistency.
They also have an inferior h2h record against this opponent, and have been one of the worst teams in the whole league the past three months.
Surely count on Leicester to post the three points on the board this Sunday, and put pressure on Chelsea.
Leicester vs Brighton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Foxes recorded 12 of the previous 17 overall wins.
- They have scored two or more goals in four of the former six clashes.
- They are unbeaten against this opponent since 2014.
- At this venue, the hosts had recorded eight of the last ten overall wins.
- The visitors had failed to score in nine of the last thirteen matches at this stadium.
Leicester vs Brighton: Prediction
Rodgers’s men won 1-2 on the road the last match-day, against Sheffield United. In the meantime, Potter’s men lost 1-2 at home against Southampton.
Going on, the Foxes were unbeaten in eight of their previous eleven overall games, and they had won seven of these fixtures. At home, they had won three of their last four appearances, and kept clean sheets in these three match-ups too.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in nine of their preceding ten overall games, and they have a single win on the road in the past three months.
Going on, Rodgers’s men were the champions of the competition in 2015-16, while their opposite number had gained entry into the English top flight just three seasons back.
In addition, the hosts of the day also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue.
Taking these observations into account, expect a winning performance from Leicester this Sunday.
