Prediction Fotball: Leicester City - Newcastle United, Premier Leauge
- Title : Prediction Fotball: Leicester City - Newcastle United, Premier Leauge
Leicester are among the leading teams in the Premier League. They have collected 63 points in 34 games played. Newcastle stand close to the relegation zone with 36 points only. They have lost nine matches from 17 played on the road. Leicester have won the previous H2H match against Newcastle when playing on the road and I expect them to win at home also.
35th round of the Premier League and in that match Leicester who is in 3rd position will face Newcastle, which is in 17th position. The game is very important for Leicester because if they win it will be closer to the Champions League spot, so my tip is Leicester's victory
Leicester City have not yet secured Champions League games for next season. In the Premier League table, they are in 3rd place and have 5 points more than West Ham, who park in 5th place. A lighter opponent visits them in the form of Newcastle, which is just above the relegation line, but which has 9 points down to the bottom swamp. So there is no danger to the magpies.
Leicester have shown proof of a strong form in the final stages, unlike last season, when the team took victories over West Brom with 3-0 and Crystal Palace with 2-1. Most recently, however, they could not take advantage of playing with one more man. Jannik Vestergaard received a red card after 10 minutes for Southampton, who later in the match took a lead on a penalty. Jonny Evans equalized with 25 minutes left, but the match ended in a draw.
It was a tough away game against Southampton. Now the bottom team Newcastle is waiting at home and it will be an easier task. Newcastle had nothing to oppose Arsenal last time out, who before that had a Europa League match in their legs in Spain. Overall, Newcastle made a bad effort and fooled fairly with 0-2. Fabian Schär was sent off. Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles, Karl Darlow and Ryan Fraser are already injured.
My bet will be that Leicester wins the match by -1 goal on Asian handicap. Money back on exactly one goal win, loss on cross or Newcastle win and win if Leicester win by more than one goal in difference.
- Leicester have won 5 of their last 6 home matches
- Leicester have won 9 of their last 12 matches against Newcastle
- Leicester have won 4 of their last 6 home matches against Newcastle
- Newcastle have lost 10 of their last 14 away matches
