Leicester City VS Southampton
English Premier League -- Match Time：4/20/2018 02:45 Friday (GMT+8)
Leicester City: Seventh place is forgiven ( Recent Form: W D W L L )
In an eighth position, Leicester City is after 33 games played in the Premier League. With an eighth place, The Foxes will not be completely dissatisfied, because at the beginning of this season it all went a bit stiff with the Dutch champion two seasons ago. Since Claude Puel is at the helm at The Foxes, the results of Leicester City have become a lot more stable with the current ranking as a result. With a deficit of nine points, Leicester City will no longer rise in the rankings, but The Foxes fear that they will fall. The advantage over Everton, which has played a match more, is only one point and Newcastle United has only two points behind the Puel team. The last matches, the draft is a bit in at Leicester City. Puel saw that his team lost the last two games in the Premier League and with three defeats in the last four games, the shape of Leicester is not good. Last weekend Leicester City lost to Burnley and with that the seventh place is out of sight. That Leicester City could not get hold of points on Turf Moor was a miracle. After nine minutes it was already 2-0 in favor of Burnley, but then Leicester City got the chance to score goals for eighty minutes and it only stayed with a hit by Jamie Vardy. Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel had to leave the field on Turf Moor with an injury just before time and it is still doubtful at the time of writing whether the Dane is fit enough to take action again on Thursday-evening. If they had to miss Leicester City Schmeichel, it would save a sip on drinks, because the Danish goalkeeper has always proved to be a reliable closing point in recent seasons.
Southampton: Fight for every point ( Recent Form: L W L L L )
At Southampton they would sign immediately for the eighth place of Leicester City. The Saints have done more than reasonably in the Premier League over the past few seasons, but this season it will not work at the Wesley Hoedt club. Southampton has been in the Premier League for some time now and it is up to Mark Hughes to get The Saints back above that line. Under the Welshmen, Southampton managed to qualify for the semi-final of the FA Cup, but all three league games in which Hughes was on the bench were lost. Last weekend, Chelsea, which was the opponent of Southampton on Saturday in the FA Cup, was too strong for The Saints. Like a week earlier against Arsenal (3-2 loss), Southampton took the lead and managed to hold out for a long time, but against Chelsea, Southampton once again came to the end. Dusan Tadi? and Jan Bednarek had shot Southampton against Chelsea at a 2-0 lead and The Saints seemed to be able to compete against the national champion last season, but had to cash in three hits in the last twenty minutes and lost with 2-3 to Chelsea. It was an acid loss for Southampton, as the gap with number seventeen Swansea City rose to five points due to the loss. Southampton still faces Swansea City this season in the Premier League, but will have to make up for a gap of two points until that time.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Leicester City are still more highly rated and better than Southampton. Sothampton have a chance to make a surprise, but with the position of a guest squirming in the relegation battle while the home team no longer aim to strive. So I put money to the guests in Asian handicap.
