Leicester City vs Watford Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leicester City were able to get a point at the AMEX Stadium after a 1-1 draw with Brighton. Glen Murray once again helped Brighton to lead from a set piece situation. This goal came after 15 minutes and Leicester were a man down after 28 minutes following James Maddison’s second yellow card. However, Jamie Vardy converted a late penalty to get a point. Leicester were then able to reach the League Cup quarter-finals by overcoming Southampton. Watford lost yet another home game with Liverpool getting a 3-0 win. Mohamed Salah continued his amazing run against Liverpool with the opener after 67 minutes. A stunning free-kick from Alexander-Arnold and a late goal from Roberto Firmino helped Liverpool overcome Henderson’s late red card.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The King Power Stadium has been a difficult place for Watford with four defeats in five trips, but the Foxes lack the offensive quality to put a winning run together. The foxes have been in a draw in 50% of their last six games. Watford have not been great away from home this season and their poor record at the King Power Stadium makes me go with a draw.

The Watford team do know how to create chances with Gerard Deulofeu and Pereyra having a great run so far this season. However, the Hornets also struggle with conversion of their chances just like Leicester. The appropriate option for this match is under 2.5 goals.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester have done well to come away from the tragic incident surrounding their chairman with a decent set of results, but Claude Puel’s men have been unable to make a push up the league table owing to a lack of threat up front. In the last six matches, Leicester have managed only five goals and the likes of Brighton and Fulham have scored more than the Foxes during this period. The heavy reliance on Jamie Vardy is a factor, but the club are also missing the creativity of Riyad Mahrez. Vardy’s campaign has been hit by injuries and suspension, but he has still come away with four league goals so far.

Leicester City Team News

Harry Maguire (knee), Vicente Iborra (knock), Rachid Ghezzal (leg), and Daniel Amartey (broken ankle) are unavailable for the Foxes.

Watford Preview

Watford find themselves once again amidst a poor set of results, although the team will be perplexed about the inability to get some points in the recent game against Liverpool. The Hornets played relatively well and deserved much better than a 3-0 drubbing. The games at Vicarage Road were a crucial factor behind Watford’s excellent set of results in the first couple of months, but the club now have to dig deep in order to find the same. Roberto Pereyra do not score against Liverpool but the Brazilian has five goals this season.

Watford Team News

Younes Kaboul (foot), Tom Cleverley (Achilles tendon), José Holebas (calf), and Pontus Dahlberg (head) are unavailable for Watford.
