Tip Leicester - Southampton
Prediction published on May 20, 2022 at 4:34 AM
Leicester entertains Southampton at the King Power stadium in this final day match of the Premier League. The home team are in ninth position with 49 points while the visitors are in 15th position with 40 points. Leicester will want to cement their place in the top half of the table with victory in this match. They are fresh of an excellent 1-1 away draw to Chelsea in their last match which has extended their unbeaten run to three matches. Leicester have only lost once in their last 12 home matches across all competitions. Since the 2015/16 season when they beat QPR on the final matchday they haven’t won on the last day, drawing three and losing three. Leicester have scored 26 goals and conceded 33 in their last 15 Premier League final day matches at an average of 3.93 goals per match.
Southampton will want to end their very disappointing season with a win as they are only five points above the relegation zone. They are on a dismal run of four defeats from their last five matches and have only one win in their last 12 matches across all competitions. Southampton have a just as poor away record and have not won in their last six away matches with three draws and three defeats. They have however won on two of their last three visits to the King Power Stadium which is the same number of wins they achieved in the 16 previous visits. Southampton have had a player sent off four times in the last seven matches against Leicester.

Southampton face the real possibility of finishing just two points away from the relegation zone if they lose this match. Leicester will be confident coming into this match as they are undefeated in their last four matches against Southampton therefore we are backing the home team for the win.
