Manchester City vs Leicester: Preview & Prediction
The betting houses see an extremely unbalanced game, the hosts having a 1.22 share for a win, while a 2 solist is seen as rather impossible, the odds being 12.00. These odds make me say that a bet on the end result is pointless. So for the match between Manchester City and Leicester we chose a tip based on the number of guest cards that I think will not be a small one. See below my reasoned forecast, but also details and statistics about confrontation.
Their season is not too great under Pep Guardiola’s command and is on 4 with 69 points after 35 stages and the maximum can reach 3, Liverpool having an extra point, but can also fall to 6, Arsenal and rival United Being just one point, respectively 2 distances.
They did not go through a good time, they were eliminated from the English Cup, then drew 2 times and in the previous round they crushed right on Crystal Palace, score 5-0.
At home they are a force, only Chelsea managing to beat them this season in all competitions, but they were only imposed in 2 of the last 5 confrontations on Etihad.
The attack did not impress, it’s just the 4th with 40 successes, and there is also the defensive that has won 37 goals so far.
The probable team (4-1-4-1): Caballero – Fernandinho, Otamendi, Kompany, Clichy – Toure – Sane, Bruyne, Silva, Sterling – Jesus.
After the championship last season they are disappointed and are only 9 points with 43 points after 35 stages, their only hope being the 8th place, occupied by West Brom with 2 points in addition.
They come after a good period, two consecutive wins, but before that they did not win 5 matches in a row and in 3 of them they were even defeated.
The trips did not hit them and in 3 out of the last 5 they lost, the only positive result being the one in the last game on the foreign field, when they got to West Brom with a score of 1-0.
