Southampton vs Leicester City Betting Tips
At the moment, the Foxes are at the 3rd spot on the Premier League table with just two points less than the second-placed Man City. Considering how poor have teams like Tottenham, Chelsea, and Manchester United been this season, Leicester City have every right to hope to finish the season among the top four.
Of course, it’s still a long way until the end of the season, but judging by what we’ve seen so far from Brendan Rodger’s boys, this team can do a lot. Their next obstacle is Southampton, a team that’s been in a really poor form. They have only 8 points after 9 rounds of the Premier League, which puts them just above the relegation zone.
Southampton are among the biggest candidates for relegation, but no one can dispute the talent of their players. This team has some really good players, who have what it takes to cause upsets in games where they’re big underdogs. What’s got to worry about them is that they’ve been awful at home.
St. Mary’s Stadium is the place where Southampton have won only one point this season. They lost three home matches and played a draw only on one occasion. The good news for them is that the Foxes haven’t been that great on the road. This team has lost their previous two away Premier League games.
Still, to be fair to them, they played against Manchester United and Liverpool in those matches. And even in those games, they didn’t embarrass themselves. In fact, they played more than well in those matches, but the luck was on the side of their opponents. And that’s something that gives them a lot of confidence for the upcoming matches. The Foxes are determined to keep their good form ongoing, which is why you can expect them to do very well on Friday evening.
