Leicester vs Newcastle: On this round of the Premier League, this Saturday,
Leicester hosts Newcastle at the King Power Stadium.
This is a duel between two teams that are living good periods on the competition. Newcastle has spent a lot of their time on the competition worrying about a possible return to the Championship.
But their recent positive form, that we could call the team’s best moment of form of the season, has given Newcastle some breathing room. The team reached 35 points, and they sit in 12th place with a 7-points advantage over the relegation zone.
On their last 5 matches, they’ve only gotten 1 loss, while also getting an important victory over Manchester United. Leicester has also been doing well. On their last matches, they only lost to Chelsea on the Cup and it was already in extra-time. On the league table, they occupy the 9th place with 43 points conquered.

Both Leicester and Newcastle are in good moments of form. Of course that we still see many rating Leicester for that unlikely title.
But we all know that happens once in a million times. Leicester’s reality at the moment is different. And in my opinion, they are making a positive campaign, considering their limitations.
Leicester vs Newcastle – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With the exception of the so-called Premier League’s giants, Leicester is only behind Burnley, that is also being a surprise of this season. With that said, I see more quality on the home side, especially more firepower.
Of course that Newcastle’s form is good, with 2 wins, but I believe we need to calm down for a second. Away from home, the visiting side doesn’t perform as well and the odds for Leicester have value in my opinion.
