West Bromwich Albion vs Leicester City
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 29th April 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
West Bromwich Albion will try and end their dismal streak of three consecutive losses in the top flight of English football.
It won’t be an easy task for the Baggies as thy host the reigning champions who have significantly improved their performances since Claudio Ranieri’s departure.
West Bromwich Albion
Tony Pulis has generally had a successful season on WBA’s bench as the team will most likely end the campaign in the top half of the standings.
The Welsh manager will, however, definitely want to see his team getting out of the crisis and finally managing to score a goal.
This is the accomplishment the Baggies failed to achieve in each of their last four Premier League fixtures.
The Foxes were just seconds away of escaping the defeat to Arsenal at The Emirates in mid-week.
The team led by Craig Shakespeare showed a decent display at the back which could well earn them points at The Hawthorns considering the poor attacking shape shown by the hosts lately.
West Brom vs Leicester City: Head to head
WBA have been much better in the history of head to head clashes with the Foxes as they lead the tie by four wins ahead of the teams’ 73rd meeting.
It is interesting to note that each of the four previous encounters between the two sides ended with the option of both teams netting and with at least three goals in the match.
West Brom vs Leicester City: Prediction
Even though Leicester City have a catastrophic record on the road so far in the season, we’ll back them to pick up points from the Hawthorns since the hosts are miles away from their best shape.
West Brom vs Leicester City: Bets
The first betting pick is Leicester City to win at the odds of 13/8.
The braver punters can try with The Foxes to win to nil at 15/4.
