Leicester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers Tips & Predictions
11th August 2019 – 14:00
Match Preview & Team News
Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers take on each other in one of the most interesting ties of the opening Matchday on Sunday afternoon at King Power Stadium. Both teams finished the previous season in the top half of the standings and they have both enjoyed a fabulous spell of form in the pre-season.
The Foxes won five and drew one of six friendlies this summer. They’ve scored at least two goals in each of these affairs, including last three clashes against Stoke City, Rotherham United, and Atalanta. Brendan Rodgers’ side head into the new season with sky-high ambitions given they’ve kept the main stars in the summer transfer window.
Leicester City also made a permanent deal with Youri Tielemans who was on loan from Monaco last season, while they also signed Newcastle United’s talented midfielder Ayoze Perez.
Wolves were unbeaten in four games this summer. They showed a tremendous defensive form having conceded no more than one goal during the process. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men demolished Newcastle United 4-0 in the Premier League Asia Trophy semi-final before holding Manchester City to a goalless draw in the final. They stormed past Northern Irish Crusaders 6-1 on aggregate in the UEFA Europa League second round qualifications as well.
These two likes mete each other three times last season. Teams have snatched a single win, draw, and loss in the process. Both outfits claimed wins in league matches in front of their fans. The previous clash at King Power Stadium ended in a 2-0 victory for the Foxes.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Wolves are in the middle of their Europa League tie with Armenian Pyunik. Since Leicester City have been too good in the pre-season, we find the value in backing the home win at the 6/5 odds.
Half TimeMarket Prediction
The draw at the half time looks like a decent call at the odds of 21/20 since we expect the visitors to stand tight at the back in an attempt to keep the good defensive form going here.
