Leicester vs Wolves PREVIEW & PREDICTION 18/08/2018


On Saturday, at 15:00, Leicester meets home on the newly-promoted Wolverhampton, who showed very well in the first leg with Everton! “The Foxes” come after 1-2 in Manchester United, where the former Midlands champions did not play badly, while Wolves did 2-2 at home with Everton, with a numerical superiority a half.

We expect to see gaps on both sides here, because the two local rivals have unpredictable attacking factors and the tendency to commit defensive errors in the fast-paced stages. In Leicester’s case, we are talking about the vulnerability of Harry Maguire’s defense, and a safety pillar after Morgan and Huth’s retreats. Wolves has fast offensive players like Jimenez or Jota, who can mistaken Leicester’s lean gear.

6 South Americans in Wolverhampton’s base team.

Not to look at the “live silver” Ruben Neves, who is among the best markers of the team but has not scored yet inside the team for Jorge Costa team. But we have to remark that Leicester has been on a par with Manchester United a week ago, so we can not underestimate Claude Puel’s team. At the same time, at least 3 goals scored in each of Leicester’s last 3 matches in the Premier League.

Wolverhampton was the most spectacular team in the Championship last season, scoring in a very difficult league. The influence of the Portuguese impresario Jorge Mendes is felt, because Wolverhampton has made remarkable transfers lately and the orange team is dynamic, homogeneous and permanently offensive. Wolves’ construction game can make a beautiful figure on “King Power Stadium”.

They scored both bands in 3 of the last 4 straight games and the only time the exception was made to the rule was in a friendly match in 2017, a 1-0 score for Wolverhampton. Also, we see that Leicester has received a goal in each of the last four games, which tells a bit about the stability problems faced by the hosts. Vardy should come back among the players and, along with Demaray Gray, will terrorize the opposing defender.


Leicester: Schmeichel – Amartey, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell – R. Pereira, A. Silva, Ndidi, Gray – Maddison – Iheanacho

Wolverhampton: Rui Patricio – Bennett, Coady, Boly – Doherty, Moutinho, R. Neves, Jonny – H. Costa, R. Jimenez, D. Jota

PREDICTION: Leicester to win @ 2.06
