Sunderland vs Leicester (Pick, Prediction, Preview)

Sunderland - Leicester

It could be said that it is a game for permanence that awaits us at the Stadium of Light, when Sunderland receives the visit of the champion Leicester City, in match corresponding to the 14th date of the Premier League.

The numbers in direct bouts slightly favors Leicester City who add 32 wins for 29 Sunderland in 83 games played, and is that last season for the foxes was vital to get this small advantage after winning the two 4- 2 at home and 2-0 at Sunderland, so those led by David Moyes hope to cut distance this Saturday.

The Black Cats came from a hard 0-2 defeat at Liverpool to cut a good streak of positive results, as they were 3-0 over Hull City and 2-1 over Bournemouth. Has been able to leave the last place of the classification, and knows that to leave this it is only three points of the Crystal Palace, for that it wants to win this Saturday yes or yes.

Meanwhile, those run by Carlos Ranieri are not that team last season where they were crowned champion for the first time, the foxes come from drawing home at two goals against Middlesbrough and thus still unable to win in their last four Premier games , And if we have to speak in a general sense, Leicester has only won a game of his last eight, which shows how bad it has been happening in the Premier, to the point that is located two points from the drop zone.

But in the fox there is confidence, and is that unlike what is doing in the Premier League, his participation in the Champions League is formidable, have classified undefeated and leaders of his group and is expected that good participation is transmitted in the Premier And we believe that the game against Sunderland is a good way to steer the course, it is true that they are visiting where he has not done well this season in Premier, but Sunderland at home has not gone well either, winning one of his last five Games in that condition; For that reason, the tie for Leicester we believe is the best alternative if it is planned to invest in this game, since in case of equality we are returned the bet.
