Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League.
King Power Stadium, Leicester – 18th May 2017, 19:45.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
There is only one game scheduled to be played on Thursday night in England Premier League. The reigning champions Leicester City will be hosting Tottenham Hotspur and judging by the recent performances of these two teams, we should see an interesting encounter.
The hosts and the reigning champions have undergone a lot of changes in the last couple of months. Many were shocked to see Claudio Ranieri getting sacked, but it turned out that was the best possible move from the club’s administration. Shakespeare has done huge work in making the players play like a team again and escape the bottom of the table.
They have had an amazing run back in late February / early March, winning six games in a row. However, The Foxes were unable to perform on such high level for long time. They are currently 11th with 43 points and with no chance to make any significant progress in the last two rounds.
As for their opposition, Tottenham Hotspur fans have every reason to be satisfied with the season for their team. They are the only team which is undefeated at home, which was a great way to say bye to White Hart Lane, as the Spurs will be playing their matches at Wembley now.
Maurco Pochettino’s team was the only contender to Chelsea FC for the title all until the 34th Round when they were defeated by city rivals West Ham United. Harry Kane and Delle Alli have had the best season of their careers so far, and there is no doubt they will lead the team next year in a conquest to win the EPL.
When it comes to the odds for this match, the bookies have decided to back Tottenham to win it with 17/20 odds, while chances for The Foxes to stay undefeated are offered at 19/20. We feel that Pochettino will rest some of his key players here after exhausting duel against Man Utd on Sunday. Some of the reserves will surely get a chance in this duel which should increase the chances for Leicester to win at least one point.
The Foxes were so close to cause an upset against Man City during the weekend, losing the game 2 – 1 while Riyad Mahrez has failed to score from penalty spot.
Our top pick for this duel is going to be Under 2.5 FT rate at 11/10. It is very hard to picture any of these two sides to score more than once, considering Tottenham will probably play in a mixed line up.
