LEICESTER CITY VS MANCHESTER CITY BETTING
Brendan Rodgers’ side found themselves enjoying a great run of form ahead of the international break, having beaten the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion (2-1), Sheffield United (5-0) and Manchester United (3-1). Currently positioned strongly in third place – only one point behind second, Leicester City now prepare to lace up their boots for what could be an all-important clash against the soon-to-be crowned Premier League champions, Manchester City, this Saturday.
For the Foxes, their objective to make it into the top four and secure Champions League football for next season is looking likely. However, nothing can be taken for granted in football. Memories of last year’s post-COVID struggles – which saw Leicester drop from second place to fifth, are likely to still be fresh in the minds of those who support the club.
All that being said, come this Saturday Brendan Rodgers’ side will have 90 minutes to once again prove that they can compete with Europe’s elite. With club-captain Jamie Vardy, who is at 7/4 (2.75) to find the back of the net, and Kelechi Iheanacho, measured at 13/5 (3.60) to find his 13th goal of the season, fit and ready to feature, we expect Leicester City to come out fighting to produce another thrilling classic against Manchester City this weekend.
There aren’t many superlatives left that can adequately describe the truly remarkable 26-game win streak Manchester City are enjoying ahead of their fixture away to Leicester this Saturday. Atop the Premier League table with 14 points to spare, Pep Guardiola finds himself in the driving seat as he looks to secure his third league title for the Sky Blues in just five years.
Although confidence and form are on the side of the visitors, Manchester City players will be undoubtedly wary of their rivals this weekend. Fans may be forgiven for forgetting that only earlier this season, Leicester City thumped the current runaway-league leaders in their previous Premier League fixture at the Etihad, coming back from a goal down to astonishingly win the game 5-2.
After scoring against Iceland in Germany’s recent international fixture, Manchester City’s talisman Ilkay Gundogan is at 27/20 (2.35), to add to his impressive seasonal tally of 16 goals this weekend, while Riyad Mahrez is measured at 13/7 (2.85), to find the back of the net against his old team.
With recent news out of the Etihad confirming that this will be Sergio Aguero’s last season playing for Man City, the Argentinian comes in at 21/20 (2.05) to prove he’s still got what it takes and bang one in for his side this Saturday.
