MANCHESTER CITY VS LEICESTER PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Manchester City has 2 wins with a strong score in the last 2 matches against Leeds United and Newcastle United, scoring up to 11 goals and not conceding any goals. With this result, the defending champion is still leading the table with 44 points after 14 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. Currently, the Etihad Stadium team is the team that both owns the home record and the best away record when they have both won 22 points after 9 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss, which shows they are very stable in form.
Leicester City came to this trip with a strong mood when they had just been eliminated from the Carabao Cup arena, it is worth mentioning that it was the defeat they once led to Liverpool with a difference of 2 goals, even victory was very close when equalized at 90+5 minutes, then lost on penalties. In the Premier League, the foxes are also disappointing when they only got 22 points after 6 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses, of which 3 recent away matches they only drew 2, lost 1.
The competitive spirit is one of the things that Leicester City has not had in recent times, especially when they just lost to Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. Meanwhile, Manchester City is gradually showing the level of the defending champion despite having faltering moments at the beginning of the season and the past two big wins have more or less said their strength at the moment.
Select: Man City FT.
Leicester City has just boldly attacked Liverpool in the last Carabao Cup quarter-finals and they almost succeeded when drawing 3-3 after 90 minutes, even taking the lead twice. The double attack with Manchester City at this time is even more dangerous when the army of coach Pep Guardiola owns everything, in which the speed and efficiency is the defending champion who is scaring opponents.
Select: Over 3 1/4 FT.
In the first leg, Manchester City defeated this opponent at King Power and now playing at home at a time of high performance makes them even more terrifying. It should be remembered that the blue half of Manchester has won all of the last 6 home matches in which they won 3-0 against Everton and most recently 7-0 against Leeds United. Therefore, it is very difficult for the Foxes to make a surprise in this visit.
Select: Man City FT.
In addition to having to be a guest on the Etihad in front of the defending champion who is in high form, Leicester City is also losing physically when they have just experienced a very tiring match against Liverpool in the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup, the match must be resolved by series gunfight. In addition, weak playing skills and bad defense will certainly be the weaknesses that the Foxes can hardly create a surprise in front of the Etihad Stadium team, so a defeat is inevitable.
