Leicester City vs Brighton
English Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 26 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
Leicester City and Brighton are going to face each other in the 28th round of English Premier League on Tuesday evening.
Home side is positioned in the middle of the table, but they have bene in a very poor streak lately. They managed to remain undefeated just once in the last seven matches in all competitions and after a heavy 4-1 defeat against Crystal palace in the latest round, Claude Puel got sacked.
The hosts haven’t been too bad in the front, however their defending should have been better. Their home displays have been terrible lately as Leicester City lost four times in a row when playing in front of their fans.
Brighton are in a very similar momentum as their opponents as they snatched just two points in the last six rounds. They are still not safe as the visitors are only three points ahead of the relegation zone.
Glenn Murray and the lads need to improve their finishing as they managed to score just 28 times so far, while their defending wasn’t too tight. Brighton’s away displays have been very poor as they snatched just eight points from 13 outings.
Leicester City vs Brighton: Head-to-head
Both sides have been equally successful in their head to head clashes recently as they managed to celebrate two times each in the last five occasions. Their clashes are not too efficient and the crowd is able to see two to three goals in total. Leicester City managed to beat their rivals at King Power Stadium three times in the last four occasions.
Leicester City vs Brighton: Prediction
Both sides are in a poor momentum and they are looking forward to breaking their negative record. Leicester City have been poor in front of their fans, but the change of their head coach might have a positive effect and the hosts might snatch all three points.
Although their encounters have usually been low scoring ones, both teams have been involved in efficient matches lately. Therefore, in this one we should see goals in both nets and it should be an open clash.
