Southampton vs Leicester (PICKS, PREDICTION, PREVIEW)

Southampton – Leicester prediction


Odds: 1.70

Southampton – Leicester – Sunday are scheduled for the remaining three matches of the 22nd round of the English Premiership, but it is certainly the most interesting of them this where they meet two teams that last year was a hit on the island. However, this season, both played really badly, including the popular “saints” at this time occupying only 13th place in the table, while the current champions of Leicester even worse and there are two places lower, and with three points lower on account. Let us add here that even their autumn tour of Leicester ended goalless, while last year in Southampton also be a draw, but with four goals scored.


Of course that they are true lovers of football and now they hope a similar match at St. Mary’s stadium, no matter what we have said that these two teams do not provide anywhere near as good as the party last year. However, Southampton’s last two performances at home enrolled victory, and first in the first semi-final League Cup when the 1: 0 defeated the favored Liverpool, and during the last week celebrated the same result in the repeated meeting of the third round of the FA Cup against second-division Norwich.

On the other hand, by coach Puel in the championship are in crisis, and established links with four defeats, which led to their fall to the bottom of the table, noting that still have large eight points more than the team who are in the relegation zone . But that does not mean to laugh had to give up in this match with Leicester, because to them it could create big problems in the rest of the season and is precisely why Puel in the FA Cup and rested most of the first team. Otherwise, due to injuries are still sidelined guard Targett, midfielders Davis, Pied and Boufal and striker Austin, while defender Fonte suspended by coach Puel.

Probable lineups Southampton: Forster – Soares, Yoshida, van Dijk, Bertrand – Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Hojbjerg – Redmond, Long, Tadic


For guests from Leicester we have this season, but has repeatedly stressed that not even a pale shadow of the team that last year convincingly came to his first title of English champions, and certainly one of the reasons such a large fall in their game should look and performances on several fronts. However, in his debut in the Champions League have appeared in excellent light and even won a place in the next round, but they are in the championship desperate and could not manage to tie a few good results.

Thus, in the last round at home defeated 3: 0 of the current leader Chelsea, while earlier in the championship celebrated at home against West Ham thing and drew away to Middlesbrough, while in the third round of the FA Cup played a very good match to Goodison and celebrated with 2: 1 over Everton. However, the defeat of the “blues” were certainly shaken again and is expected to coach Ranieri now against Southampton and make a few changes to the starting 11, but that still does not otherwise apply injured striker Ulloa this trio is on the African Nations Cup, midfielders Amartey and Mahrez and striker Slimani.

Probable lineups Leicester: Schmeichel – Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs – Musa, Ndidi, Drinkwater, Albrighton – Okazaki – Vardy
