Manchester City vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Tips

Premier League – Manchester City vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Tips. In the Round 37 in Premier League, Manchester City host Leicester City at Etihad. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester City vs Leicester.

Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City

Manchester City stand at the 4th position in Premier League and their primary goal is to finish the season in the Top 4 and qualify in the Champions League. They could even reach the Top 3 and qualify directly in CL next season. The match against Leicester is very important for home side and they will be fully motivated to take all three points and make one big step forward to reach Top 3. In the previous round Manchester City smashed Crystal Palace 5-0, so if they repeat their performance from that game, Leicester could be in the big trouble. Their top scorer Sergio Aguero is still out due to injury, so in the attack should be Gabriel Jesus. He is not the only dangerous player for visitors because home side have other attacker midfielders such as Kevin de Bruyne, Sterling, Sane and Silva. Their manager Pep Guardiola hasn’t make impressive result this season, but in this moment he wants to see his team in the Champions League, so I expect home side domination from the first minute.

Leicester don’t play this season as they did in the previous when they won the title in Premier League, but they have improved their performance and currently standing at the 9th position. They are far from the relegation zone, while on the other side they don’t have a chance to reach the position which leads in Europa League, so their motivation until the end of the season is questionable. After poor performance in the recent period, Leicester City had started to play much better and won two matches in a row and didn’t concede a single goal. It will be hard for them to secure their net against Manchester City, but they have nothing to lose, so I expect their open performance which could give enough open space for home attacks.

Team News

Home side miss their first goalkeeper Bravo and Gundogan, while Kun Aguero and Stones are both doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Morgan and Drinkwater.

Manchester City vs Leicester Prediction

Home side play very good, especially upfront their supporters, so I expect their attacks from the beginning of the match. Visitors have nothing to lose, so I believe they will try at least to score one goal. I expect interesting and open match between Manchester City vs Leicester and many goals in both nets.
