Leicester City – Statistics & Current Form
The last three results: 4: 1 Huddersfield Town, 2: 0 vs. 0. AFC Bournemouth, 2: 1 Vs. Burnley
Running in Leicester: The Foxes are currently in four wins in a row – and it was not just the results that left a good impression.
At the start of the winning streak, the team met FC Fulham. In the duel with the acutely relegation-threatened Cottagers a victory was firmly planned, and with the appropriate attitude, the team went to the game also. The result: a highly domineering appearance, which resulted in a deserved 3: 1 success.
The following weekend we went to Burnley. After five winless away games, the signs seemed to be in bad shape, but again the Foxes were in good shape and set the tone. The Clarets did well, but in the end Leicester made a well-deserved 2-1 home victory.
There they finally received the AFC Bournemouth, a counterparty from the table midfield, which was inferior to 2-4 in the first leg. However, in front of home crowd, the Foxes presented defensive bombing and offensively determined, which led to a never endangered 2-0 success.
The fourth win from Leicester’s current series was finally the most impressive: 4: 1 the team made the relegated from Huddersfield, the highest away victory since the championship season. Especially in the second round, the team played in a veritable intoxication and thus polished their goal difference. That could still be important: with 47 points Leicester currently occupies 7th place, which probably entitles to the Europa League participation. But with one game behind and also 47 points lurking the competition on Wolverhampton for mistakes.
If the Wolves stumble in the final spurt, so the goal difference could still be decisive – accordingly, one should also hope against Newcastle on a significant success.
Possible lineup Leicester City
Leicester coach Rodgers currently has no reason to distrust his performers. Accordingly, on Friday evening, especially established forces are likely to be on the lawn – as follows:
Flattery – Ricardo Pereira, W. Morgan, Soyuncu, Chilwell – Ndidi – D. Gray, Tielemans, Maddison – Barnes – Vardy
Newcastle United – Statistics & Current Form
The last three results: 0: 1 vs. Crystal Palace, 0: 2 Vs. Arsenal, 2: 2 vs. AFC Bournemouth
The worm is in at Newcastle United: Instead of getting rid of the recent relegation worries, the Magpies have made some missteps in recent weeks, which could be expensive. The gap to the relegation places is still seven points – but Cardiff City is one game behind in 18th place. And Newcastle’s current form certainly allows for concern.
By the end of February, the world had looked fine, with five victories out of seven games, the team had blundered into the middle of the table, where they intended to stay. But as a result, the results were worse – and with them the table space.
For example, against West Ham United, the Magpies suffered a bitter 2-0 defeat before beating Bournemouth 2-2. In the duel with top team Arsenal presented afterwards respectable, but a chance for points was still at any time – 0: 2.
Finally, last weekend, Crystal Palace, a table neighbor, was waiting to be overtaken in a win. But after 90 tough minutes Newcastle stole with drooping heads from the square, in the end Palace was the more compelling team with the necessary little luck (0: 1).
The bottom line is the Magpies thus in three games without a win and a total of five successful away games in one piece. Against Leicester City will try to put an end to both series – but the past performances made little hope in this regard.
Possible lineup Newcastle United
Newcastle coach Benitez has recently seen few convincing performances by his team, which could move the Spaniard to some changes. The following formation seems conceivable:
Dubravka – Yedlin, Schär, Lascelles, Dummett, Ritchie – Ayoze Perez, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu – Rondon
Betting Tips and Predictions Explained Leicester City vs Newcastle
Basically, there is nothing wrong with this distribution: on Friday night, Leicester will provide the individually better team, and the team will be back with a winning streak of four games.
Newcastle, on the other hand, suffered two defeats in the last race and lost at home to Crystal Palace (0: 1). Although the Magpies must be held to be pretty good in a duel with supposedly superior teams, that does not mean that this trend will be repeated over the weekend.
Instead, much speaks in the run-up to the duel for a dominant appearance of self-confident hosts, who could make a big step towards Europe with the fifth consecutive victory.
