Wolves vs Leicester City
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 7 February 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
The Wanderers have been one of the least impressive teams this season in the English top flight. They have rarely won games this campaign, and even those victories have come against some of the worst squads in the PL.
They no longer resemble the ‘Giant-Killers’ they used to be in earlier seasons, and no longer harbor any hope of qualifying for Europe.
As of now, they are placed 14th in the table, and worryingly have scored a total of just 23 goals from 22 fixtures.
Meanwhile, the Foxes have been one of the best teams in the Premier League. They have been in running for a CL spot right from the beginning of 2020-21, and are placed third in the table at present.
Moreover, the first-placed Manchester City are taking on the fourth-placed Liverpool this weekend, while the second-placed United are pitted against the sixth-placed Everton.
Somehow, two of these four teams will be dropping points this match-day, and it’s an opportunity for Brendan Rodgers’s men to strengthen their position in the podium.
In addition, they also have been the better team in h2h meetings over the years.
By the looks of things, expect a Leicester victory this weekend.
Wolves vs Leicester: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Foxes were unbeaten in 14 of their former 18 overall matches.
- They have kept clean sheets in five of the past six encounters.
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 1-0 win for them.
- The guests have failed to score just thrice at this venue in their last 14 visits to this ground.
Wolves vs Leicester Prediction
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men recorded a 2-1 win the last match-day at home, against Arsenal. In the meantime, Rodgers’s men registered a 0-2 victory on the road the past game week, against Fulham.
Going on, the Foxes were unbeaten in 13 of their previous 15 overall match-ups, and they had also won six of their former eight games. They are also one of the top-four contenders this season.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 10 of their preceding 14 overall fixtures, and they remained so in nine of their last fourteen appearances at home.
On top of that, Rodgers’s men also have a good h2h record against this foe in the last two decades.
As such, expect the in-form and determined Leicester to register a win this weekend.
