Leicester vs Nottingham Forest
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 03 October 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium
Leicester face off with away team Nottingham Forest at King Power Stadium in the Premier League game on Monday.
Nottingham finished the previous term of English Championship at the 4th position. Further then, they advanced it into the topflight by claiming their spot through the play offs.
Going on, Nottingham is currently on the back of four successive defeats, showing huge problems in an attempt to adapt to the elite class football from the beginning.
Head coach Steve Cooper’s problem lies in his team’s defensive line which had allowed a total of 18 goals in the previous 4 games.
Meanwhile, Leicester will come into this match off the back of one toughest defeats. They conceded 6 goals in a demolishing English Premier League loss to Tottenham in the previous match-day.
Brendan Rodgers generally has problems with the lack of meticulousness in his team’s back line since Leicester have not kept a clean sheet so far in the season.
However, they have a decent firepower on display and we can see them scoring a total of 4 goals from the past 2 league fixtures and It will be very interesting to see whether Leicester will be able to exploit the obvious holes in Nottingham’s back line.
