Tottenham vs Leicester
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Another absolutely must-win game for the two teams involved – as has always been characteristic of matches in the final phase of the season.
The Spurs are placed seventh in the table, just below the final European spot, and need a surplus of one point from the remaining two fixtures. However, the Wolves who are just above them, have an easier opponent this game week, and are easily expected to win.
Likely, Jose Mourinho’s men are forced to go after the three points.
Meanwhile, the Foxes are placed fourth – which gives them the possession of the final Champions League spot. However, Manchester United (currently in the 5th place) are determined to qualify for Europe’s premier competition.
Not only are they level on points with Brendan Rodgers’s men, and have been in impressive form. And as a result, the 2015-16 champions are forced to look for the win.
Considering this situation, and the results of the previous h2h clashes – expect both teams to find the back of the net this Sunday.
Tottenham vs Leicester: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Six of the previous seven games had goals from both teams.
- Five of the preceding six matches had three or more goals.
- Mourinho’s men had won four of the last six encounters.
- Eight of the last nine meetings at this venue had goals from both teams.
- Nine of the former eleven clashes at this stadium had three or more goals.
Tottenham vs Leicester: Prediction
Mourinho’s men recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Newcastle. Meanwhile, the Foxes registered a 2-0 victory at home over Sheffield United the past game week. The fact that this two-goal win had come against one of the best defensive teams in the league is a confidence-booster.
By the looks of things, either team have no option but to relentlessly attack in search for the three points.
Anything less of a draw would be catastrophic for both squads, and this mentality is surely going to produce a lot of mistakes on either half of the pitch – especially with the pressure the teams are under.
On top of that, games between these two have always produced goals in plenty, and especially so at the Spurs’ home. Tune into this fixture to witness one of the best games of the season, and by all means expect goals one after the other.
