PREVIEW & PREDICTIONLeicester vs Stoke 24/02/2018

Saturday afternoon, at 12:30, Leicester and Stoke meet in the first Premier League match and guests need a lot of relegation points. The tour was 2-2, after a match that “foxes” should have won.

Noteworthy that the last two matches played by the two bands at Stoke home ended with a score of 2-2, but the “pots” are empty goal scored by Leicester for three years! The balance of direct duels is balanced and somewhat insignificant here: both have a good landing and a modest tracking .

Stoke is innocuous when traveling.

Stoke has lost 6 of the last 7 away games, receiving many goals along the way (at least two in each of the last 3 matches on the pitch). Leicester is unbeaten by 3 stages and, with Mahrez and Vardy on the pitch, he should make a difference in qualitative terms. Stoke has a non-homogeneous batch and hard to reach, but Puel’s team knows he can not underestimate his opponent. If Shaqiri does not produce anything magic, Leicester’s defense is good enough to escape unhealthy. Stoke has not won 3 matches and despite the change of coach he has a lot of problems, especially since the program is not a bland one in the next stages.

Stoke was on 19th place with 27-53 goals, while Leicester is on the 8th place and became an important team in the league. With 39-40 goals and a good morale after the last matches, the hosts are favorites and have good odds to win, but Stoke can not please with a draw and certainly comes with offensive intentions on the King Power Stadium. Leicester has received a goal in 4 of its last 5 games and still has batch problems limiting its ability. Match decided to a goal difference!

Leicester: Schmeichel – Maguire, Chilwell, Simpson – D. Gray, Ndidi, A. Silva, Albrighton, Iborra – Mahrez – Vardy

Stoke: Butland – Pieters, Zouma, Shawcross, Bauer – Ndiaye, Shaqiri, Fletcher – Allen – Diouf, Choupo-Moting

PREDICTION: Leicester to win @ 1.73
