Leicester vs Manchester City Prediction & Match Preview

Leicester vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday 3rd April 2021
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).

This is a big game for Leicester who are in a great position but need to keep on pushing if they want a top 4 place. At the same time Manchester City will be looking to keep on winning games and seal the league title as soon as they can.

Leicester are in 3rd place and have 56 points and would go into 2nd at least for 24 hours with a win here. The Foxes have an 7 point safety cushion over 5th placed West Ham but that gap can be swallowed up quickly and Tottenham and Liverpool could still be threats.

Brendan Rodgers side have gone their last 3 games unbeaten and have also reached the FA Cup semi-finals in what has been a positive spell for the club. Their last game ended in a 5-0 demolition job of Sheffield United.

Manchester City should win the league and they are 14 points in front of 2nd placed Manchester United though United do have a game extra to play. City have won their last 2 games in a row with their last one ending in a comprehensive 3-0 win over Fulham.

Away from home City have the 2nd best record in the league although that would be the best if they were to win this game. City have lost just 1 game away from home so far this season.

Leicester vs Manchester City: Head to Head

  • Last season Manchester City won this game 1-0.

  • Manchester City have won six out of the last 8 meetings against Leicester.

Leicester vs Manchester City: Prediction

We expect to see goals in this game after the last one produced seven. City will want to avenge their surprise defeat earlier in the season and they have little to lose and will play their usual game coming forward with confidence.

Star striker Sergio Aguero has announced that he will be leaving City after 10 fantastic years. He has really struggled this season with injury but if he gets game time we think he is worth backing to score anytime.

The over goals market should also be taken on and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see 4 or 5 goals in this fixture, which should be exciting with lots of end to end play.

Leicester vs Manchester City: Bet Tips:

  • Manchester City to beat Leicester at 1.50 (1/2)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Sergio Aguero of Manchester City at 2.10 (11/10)
  • Over 3.5 goals at 3.00 (2/1).
