Southampton v Leicester City Match Preview & Trends

Can Saints de-rail Foxes Champions League charge?

Friday night football comes from St.Marys Stadium this week as Southampton play host to Leicester City who are fresh from beating Crystal Palace on Monday evening. The foxes had to come back from behind to seal a 2-1 victory at the King Power Stadium which solidified their position in 3rd place. Brendan Rodgers’ men are now 7 points clear of 5th placed West Ham in the race for Champions League places and of course, still have an F.A Cup Final against another top-4 rival in Chelsea to look forward to. 

Southampton conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 6 home matches and there has been a first half goal scored in each of their last 9 home games in a row. Saints have scored before half-time in their last 4 home games. There has been an odd number of goals in each of the last 7 games played by Southampton and at least three goals in the last 5 games between Southampton and Leicester at Southampton’s home. 

There has also been a card inside the first 30 minutes in the last 7 games between these two sides. Southampton have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games in total, including one of their last 5 league games at home and one of their last 5 home matches against Leicester. Ralf Hassenhuthel’s men have also conceded 2 goals or more in each of their last 5 matches.

Leicester City have won 62% of their away matches and have scored in 88% of their away matches. The Foxes have scored 2 goals or more in each of their last 3 matches and scored 33% of their goals after the 75th minute including in-form Kelechi Iheanacho’s thunderbolt winner against The Eagles last time out.
