Leicester vs Wigan Prediction

The teams will be meeting after a gap of five years in their h2h clashes. In this season, Leicester has been a surprising contingent in the Premier League table below Liverpool at the top. The host has been playing well with their strikers finding the back of the net in most of their games.

Their star player has been James Vardy this season. Besides that, Leicester has only two of their past ten matches in the major competitions. Even so, they have lost to bigger names like Man City and Liverpool.

Hence, we can expect the home team to dominate in the match against the Championship squad. In addition to that, Wigan is at the bottom part of the Championship table this season.

Apart from that, Leicester has kept their home ground as their strongest suit with  just one loss at home this season so far. Also, they had a nine game winning run in the Premier League this season. As such, the host will probably be leading in both the halves against Wigan.

With their last 13 encounters resulting in winless state, Wigan has very less to ask for in the clash. Also, they have 7 losses and 6 draws from these 13 winless games against Championship teams.

So, the chances of Wigan performing against Leicester at King Power Stadium is far from happening. Also, the Latics have not won any of their away fixtures this season until now.

Hence, we can count on Leicester City to register the win by leading both halves of the game. Also, we can expect their total score to be less than 4.5 goals in ninety minutes.
