Southampton vs Leicester
2018/19 English Premier League
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St Mary’s Stadium.

Southampton will feel frustrated because the truth is that they haven’t played too bad this season but are still without a win. Their first match ended 0-0 against Burnley and then they lost 2-1 to Everton but near the end of that game came close to forcing a draw.

At the weekend they face a tricky game against the 2016 champions Leicester and they will have to be at their best to get something from this match.

As for Leicester they played well against Manchester United at Old Trafford but still lost the game 2-1. The following week and back at home they put in a much better performance and got all three points as they beat Wolves 2-0 but the win came at a price.

That price was the suspension of star striker Jamie Vardy who was sent off with a straight red for his dangerous tackle and he will instantly miss 3 games including this one. With the same of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City all of a sudden Leicester look a little light up front for this game.

Southampton vs Leicester: Head to Head

Southampton vs Leicester: Prediction

This should be an interesting game and we expect goals in it, our main bet will be about the game opening up in the 2nd half and that’s where we think we will see the goals. Leicester have been hit a few blows lately while Southampton have been knocking on the door for a victory and have just been unlucky.
