Tip Leicester - Brighton
Prediction published on January 21, 2022 at 8:34 AM - Modified on January 21, 2022 at 9:34 AM
Leicester City stumbled once again in the league clash against Tottenham and will be hoping to start all over again when they host Brighton in the next game. Leicester go to this game in 10th place with 25 points, four less than ninth placed Brighton’s tally. Leicester were coasting to a 2-1 win over Tottenham in their last game but a late twist saw them concede two goals in the last minute and lost 3-2. This season, Leicester’s main issue has been defending; they have the goals but they rarely shut out opponents. In their last five matches for example, they have one clean sheet and in three, they’ve conceded three or more goals. They’ve however scored three or more goals as well in three of their last five matches. In total, Leicester have conceded 13 goals in their last five matches and scored 13; four of the five matches have ended in over 2.5 goals.
Four times in the last five matches, Brighton have come from down to claim a share of the spoils in their games. They head to this game having had a 1-1 draw with Chelsea, the second time in five matches that they met the Blues. They will be very confident given their fighting spirit and knowing Leicester aren’t having their best days. Brighton are unbeaten in their last six matches, winning three and drawing three. They’ve however struggled to keep clean sheets and each side has scored in their last five matches while only two of them have produced over 2.5 goals. Brighton beat Leicester in the first leg and will hope for a repeat here after their 2-1 victory, which is their only one in the last five meetings. They’ve lost three outright and one on post match penalties.
