Leicester vs Southampton – Premier League: Leicester hosts Southampton on the Premier League this Thursday at the King Power Stadium
This encounter appears at a time when both teams are going through rough periods on the competition.
Of course, that the implications of that are very different for each.
While Leicester is making a good campaign and is quiet on their position, Southampton desperately needs points to save themselves from a relegation that is getting closer and closer.
But things haven’t been improving a lot. On the weekend, everything was pointing towards the team finally being able to win, against Chelsea,
since they were winning 2-0, but they ended up allowing the comeback by 3-2 and got their 7th consecutive match in the Premier League without winning.
That left the team in 8th place with 28 points and the worst, they saw Swansea opening up a 5-points advantage on the first position outside of the relegation zone.

Leicester, despite the better campaign, is also not going through a good period on the Premier League.
The team is coming off 2 consecutive losses to Newcastle and Burnley but that hasn’t really affected the team’s position on the league table and they are still occupying the 8th place with 43 points conquered.
Leicester isn’t objectively fighting for anything else on the Premier League since they are free from any danger of relegation and also not having any chances of reaching the continental spots.
Playing at home, they have 6 victories, 5 draws and 5 losses, with 22 goals scored and 19 goals conceded. I predict a match in favour of Leicester.
Leicester vs Southampton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With both teams being on poor moments of form, the home side is a much more qualified team here.
The goals and “Both teams to score” market can be an interesting alternative, since both defences have been presenting a lot of problems recently.
