Leicester vs Liverpool Betting Tips
It’s Boxing Day and the most interesting duel is the one taking place in Leicester, where the Foxes are playing against the Reds. At the moment, these two sides are occupying the two top spots in the Premier League table.
Liverpool are the table leaders with 10 points more than Leicester City, as well as a game fewer. This practically means that with a win over Leicester on Thursday evening, Liverpool would create such a point gap that Leicester probably wouldn’t be able to bridge.
However, if the opposite scenario happened on Boxing Day, it would mean that the title race remains open. Manchester City could also get back in the game, especially if they manage to beat Wolves in Wolverhampton the next day. Speaking of Man City, this is the team that beat the Foxes in the previous Premier League round.
Obviously, both Leicester and Liverpool will be very motivated in this game, meaning that we’re about to witness a very exciting duel. Leicester have established themselves as a very tough nut to break, especially when playing at home. Liverpool, on the other hand, seem to be able to win against anyone on the planet.
There is, however, a slight worry for Liverpool fans as this team has several players injured, especially at the back. Still, even without them in the team, Liverpool were able to win the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar last week.
Another thing that’s giving them confidence is the fact that they have won four out of five previous duels with Leicester City. And the match they didn’t win was a draw.
