Leicester City Sunderland betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there won’t be many goals. On one hand, this is the first match of the league, on the other, the head to head record indicates this is likely to be a balanced and close match with few goals, since we expect both teams to present defensive strategies and play in a slow pace.

Leicester and Sunderland face at the King Power Stadium, in a match for the 1st round of the Premier League.

The head to head record indicates balance, since in the last matches there were 3 draws and 1 win for each team.

The last time they played a match at this stadium was in November 2014, in a match that ended in a goalless draw. There is a tendency for few goals, since 3 of the last 4 matches have ended with Under 1,5 Goals.

Analysis Leicester

The Foxes arrive at this match after a win in a friendly match against Birmingham City, by 2-3. Therefore, Leicester has had an excellent preparation for this season, since they have won 4 of their 5 matches and tied 1-1 against Mansfield.

The home team has had interesting results in this stadium, since in the last 10 matches they have opened up the score 7 times and have held on to the lead in 6 of those 7 matches.

Moreover, this is a team that usually plays with closed lines, not allowing their opponents much space, so they usually don’t suffer many goals: an average of only 0,7 goals per match. Their attack usually scores more goals than their defence suffers, an average of 1,6 goals scored per match.

Confirmed Lineup: Kasper Schmeichel, Ritchie De Laet, Jeffrey Schlupp, Robert Huth, Wes Morgan, Danny Drinkwater, Marc Albrighton, Andy King, Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy, Shinji Okazaki.

Analysis Sunderland

The Black Cats arrive at this match after a 0-1 away win against Hannover 96, in a friendly match. But they have lost 3 of their 6 preparation matches for this season.

In the last 10 matches, Sunderland only opened up the score twice and never reached half-time in advantage. On average, they have scored 1,2 goals per match and suffered 1,3.

Coach Dick Advocaat’s team has won 3 away matches last season for the Premier League, which is clear evidence of their problems in away matches.

Confirmed Lineup: Costel Pantilimon, Billy Jones, Patrick van Aanholt, Sebastián Coates, Younès Kaboul, Lee Cattermole, Adam Johnson, Jack Rodwell, Sebastian Larsson, Jeremain Lens, Jermain Defoe.
