Leicester vs Liverpool
Club Friendlies
Date: 30 July 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 10:00 UK / 11:00 CET
Venue: The National Stadium (Singapore).

Liverpool and Leicester trek to Singapore for their preseason friendly on Sunday at The National Stadium.

The Reds rescued their unbeaten preseason record thanks to a Mo Salah late equalizer in a spectacular 4-4 stalemate against German side Greuther Furth on Monday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have looked deadly in the final third this summer, bagging four goals in each of two exhibitions in Germany but the problems do pop up at the back and the German manager will be hoping to resolve them ahead of the tie against the Foxes.

The fact that Liverpool allowed six goals in two outings in Germany is by no means satisfying to their fans. The poor defensive showings canceled out impressive attacking performances as Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah all looked super sharp six days ago in Furth.

Leicester, on the other side, raised the spirits by claiming three straight wins after an inaugural defeat to Peterborough United behind closed doors this summer.

The Foxes have clinched victories over Northampton, OH Leuven, and Port (Thailand’s side), though have by no means impressed along the way.

New manager Enzo Maresca is yet to find adequate replacements for the departures of James Maddison, Harvey Barnes, and Yoeri Tielemans as the three main stars in the team in previous years.

Leicester vs Liverpool Head-to-head

  • Liverpool go into this on the back of three subsequent wins over the Foxes, a run that includes their 0-3 success in May this year at King Power Stadium.
  • Overall, the Reds lead the head to head tie by 10 wins ahead of the 102nd meeting with Leicester.
  • We’ve seen three or more goals in seven of the last nine head to head matches between these counterparts.

Leicester vs Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool eased past Leicester 3-0 on the road in the previous head to head meeting just over two months ago. The Foxes are much weaker now after losing three key players upon suffering relegation to Championship football.

Darwin Nunez looked fantastic in the Reds’ previous game, netting a second-half brace against Furth. We like him to score anytime here at the 2.25 odds. You can alternatively take the Over 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.66 odds.

Leicester vs Liverpool Betting Tips

  • Darwin Nunez to score anytime @ 2.25 (5/4)
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66 (4/6) odd.
