Watford vs Leicester – Premier League : Watford hosts Leicester on this Premier League’s Boxing Day this Tuesday.
Leicester’s campaign this season has been a true rollercoaster. The team started off the sporting year really poorly, with a negative streak that has left them dangerously close to the relegation zone.
But the team reacted. They stringed together several positive results in the Premier League and have climbed on the league table. Right now, Leicester occupies 8th place with 27 points.
But it seems like their momentum wore off. Of course that the draw against Manchester United on the last round was a great result, but they are winless in their last 3 matches.
Besides this draw, the team was battered at home by Crystal Palace and was eliminated on the cup after drawing against Manchester City in regulation.

Watford that started the season as one of the Premier League’s positive surprises has been falling off in terms of performances. They are winless on their last 6 matches, and, to make matter worse, they have 5 losses in that period.
Thanks to that positive start, Watford still occupies a mid-table position in the Premier League.
The team occupies the 10th place with 22 points. At the moment, Watford is closer from the relegation fight than the fight for the European competitions.
Watford vs Leicester – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Watford’s problem is precisely the unbalance. At the same time that the team has the 8th best attack of the competition, they also have the 3rd worst defence.
Against a Leicester that has been working very well offensively, we should expect a match with goals.
Besides believing on a match of goals from what both teams have been presenting, we need to remind you that Boxing Day usually provides more exciting games on that aspect.
