Football betting predictions today for Leicester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion
Leicester City welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion in a 28th round of the Premier League. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 26, starting at 7:45 at King Power Stadium.
The Leicester City team made a third consecutive loss on Saturday after giving Crystal Palace a 1:4 win at their own King Power Stadium. After defeat, the manager of the team, Claude Puel, was released and it is not clear who will lead the hosts against Brighton. The break with the French manager was expected after Leicester’s performance was very low in 2019. The Foxes have not been successful in seven consecutive matches in all tournaments as they are in 12th place in the league with a total of 32 points.
Leicester City won only 31% of their home games in the Premier League season 2018/19. The Foxes scored an average of 1.08 goals per game in front of their own public and allowed an average of 1.31 goals per game. In 54% of the King Power Stadium, both teams scored a goal. Leicester has a problem in defense and hard to keep his door open. The team has scored goals in each of their last seven home games and it will be no surprise if Brighton’s team finds the net in the upcoming match. Glenn Murray of the team has scored 10 goals from the start of the season and will aim to increase his goal.
The Brighton & Hove Albion team did not have a weekend match after their game was postponed. The Seagulls defeated Derby County 2-1 in the FA Cup at its last meeting. Brighton scored 11 goals in its last five matches on a foreign field – an average of over 2 goals in a match. Given the problems in defense of Leicester City, the best bet for this match seems to be that hosts do not keep a dry net, and you can also bet on the BTTS option as Leicester is quite likely to score a shot.
