- Title : Predictions fotball: Leicester vs Manchester City, Premier leauge
I expect there to be goals in this one these are both very attack minded sides averaging just over (Man C) and just under (Lei) 2 goals a game. City have seen 85 goals from 30 games while Leicester have seen the same 85 from 29 games. 3 of the last 5 H2H have seen over 2.5 including Leicester’s 2-5 win earlier this season which surely Man C will be keen to avenge.
The last three home games in all competitions by Leicester have all finished with over 2.50 goals. Man City's last away game finished with over 2.50 goals. With Leicester winning the reverse fixture 2-5 back in September then hopefully this game will again have a few goals.
I was worried about this game, simply because I felt semi-obligated to bet it but knew the line would be a mess. City are good, and I think there’s a very decent chance they win, but 1.67 its just not smart money to start throwing around against a Leicester team who is capable of giving them a test. The Over is a good enough choice to not care though, so that’s what I’m rolling with.
Aside from a rough Manchester Derby, City have been scoring like crazy and are now the top scoring team in the league to go along with being the lowest conceding team in the league (shocker, they’re in first place). But while their defense has been good all year, its started to play second fiddle to the offense, and they’ve given up at least a goal in 4 of their last 5 Premier League games.
Leicester, on the other side, are not all that strong defensively and are dealing with some injuries which will limit them on that end of the field (and everywhere, really). I expect they get broken down at least once or twice by City, but that they also give the away side issues on the defensive end through Vardy and Iheanacho. With James Maddison back from injury I like this team to put in at least one, and I think this game ends somewhere around the 2-1 mark, with both teams taking risks to score in a game where they know they probably need at least 2 to win.
4 of the last 5 games of Leicester ended by over 2,5 goals. At the last 4 games of Man City was fallen 13 goals total.
If things stall early then Leicester may try to sit back and hold out for a late 1-0 victory, but its not really in their DNA to do that, and I think you get some fairly enjoyable soccer between two of the best teams to watch in the league. Expect some balls in the net to go along with it, and you get some solid value at 1.80 for this total.
|Prediction||Over 2,5 goals|
