saints1718It’s a big week for Southampton who remain in the English Premier League relegation zone and their next assignment comprises of a visit to Leicester on Thursday night

 

 

Leicester Stats:

Leicester were beaten 2-1 at Burnley last weekend, they remain eighth place, seemingly with little prospect of finishing much higher

Home form comprises of 6 wins, 5 draws and 5 defeats with 22 goals scored and 19 conceded

Leicester have been awarded a total of 87 corners in their 16 home fixtures

Overall 18 of 33 league games have gone over 2.5 goals including 7 of 16 home games

Both sides have found the net in 22 of 33 league games including 9 of 16 home games

Southampton Stats:

Southampton coughed up a 2-0 lead to go down 3-2 at home to Chelsea last weekend and they came into the midweek program third from bottom and 5 points shy of safety

Away form comprises of 2 wins, 6 draws and 8 defeats with 15 goals scored and 29 conceded

Southampton have been awarded a total of 89 corners in their 16 away fixtures

Overall 15 of 33 league games have gone over 2.5 goals including 9 of 16 away games

Both sides have found the net in 19 of 33 league games including 9 of 16 away games

Southampton 32/10

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

The Saints face Chelsea in the FA Cup semi finals at the weekend but this is a huge game in terms of league points which they desperately require. I see goals and quite possibly for both sides but the way to go in Leicester games is for 2-3 in total, a profitable avenue all season.

Bet: Total goals 2-3 at 19/20
