Leicester City vs AFC Bournemouth Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leicester City were held to a 1-1 draw by Stoke City at the King Power stadium. Xherdan Shaqiri came up with the opening goal just before half-time to land a blow for the hosts, but Jack Butland’s own goal rescued a point for Leicester. Bournemouth produced a brilliant comeback to get a 2-2 draw against Newcastle United at the Vitality Stadium. Newcastle were able to get a significant 2-0 lead going into the half-time after goals from Dwight Gayle. However, Bournemouth scored twice in the last 10 minutes – through Adam Smith and Dan Gosling – in order to rescue a point.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This fixture has produced a large number of draws in recent years, as Bournemouth and Leicester have managed a solitary victory on each side in the last six meetings. The remaining four games have ended up as draws, and it is highly likely that this result would repeat once again – especially with both teams having gone through a poor run. Even with home advantage, Leicester have drawn three out of the last four matches at the King Power stadium. I would go with a draw in this game.

The Bournemouth outfit have been let down by defensive lapses to a huge extent in recent months. The away game against West Ham towards the end of January is the only Bournemouth match in 14 to experience under 2.5 goals. Leicester City have been quite the opposite with all of the last five games at the King Power stadium producing under 2.5 goals. Yet, Bournemouth’s defensive lapses are likely to ramp up the total goals and I would choose over 2.5 goals.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester City have had a poor run in recent weeks and this has prevented the club from taking full advantage of Burnley’s disappointing run for the last few months. Leicester are winless in four Premier League matches, but there have been positives for the club like the qualification to the FA Cup quarter-finals – where they would be facing Chelsea. Leicester players would certainly have an eye on this game – coming up later in March – as it represents a great opportunity to play at the Wembley. The return of just six goals in the last six league matches has been one of the few problems at Leicester, but it was to be expected under Claude Puel.

Leicester City Team News

The only player on the sidelines at Leicester City happens to be Shinji Okazaki, who is doubtful with a knee injury.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

The Bournemouth team has been looking ragged in the last couple of games, as conceding four goals against Huddersfield Town and going down 2-0 against Newcastle are not in line with the club’s performances in 2018. Bournemouth have picked up wins over Chelsea and Arsenal since the turn of the year, but the team has struggled to replicate the same performances against teams lower down in the table. As a result, Bournemouth find themselves still sitting on the fringes of a top 10 position. The top scorer at Bournemouth is Callum Wilson with seven league goals.

AFC Bournemouth Team News

Rhoys Wiggins (knee) and Tyrone Mings (back) are the players missing from action for Bournemouth.
