Reasons for betting on Leicester City vs Brighton and Hove Albion
Leicester has provided us with a fantastic spectacle at the season premiere in London. Unfortunately the Foxes could not keep the lead, and eventually, Arsenal took all three points. The similar story is with Brighton and Hove Albion. They were pretty good against Manchester City, but only five minutes were enough for them to concede two goals.
The game at Kings Power Stadium will be an opportunity for both sides to redeem for the defeats in the first round. For us, it will be a chance to place some bets and collect some money.
Leicester City overview
The champions from 2016 did not perform well during the preseason. 3 wins and 3 defeats along with one draw is not something to be proud of. But we have to add that only a few opponents were top class clubs. One of the most crucial situations regarding this club is the fact that Riyad Mahrez could leave Kings Power Stadium. It would be a huge blow for the Foxes and the whole season will depend upon this possible transfer. Robert Huth will once again skip the match because of his injury same as Vincent Iborra.
Brighton and Hove Albion overview
Despite one very good performance the in the season opener against, the inexperience was the key factor which decided the game against Manchester City. Seagulls were very good, and at some point, the Citizens looked pretty helpless when it comes to the offensive part of the match. But in the end, this was the fourth straight game in which Brighton didn’t win. They had two draws, followed by two consecutive defeats against Atletico Madrid and one mentioned above against City. The manager Chris Hughton made a solid team and as the time goes by the newbies in the league are going to be better. In the last 7 games they played, 5 ended with fewer than three goals. Unfortunately for them, in the most recent 4 events, they allowed at least one goal.
Head to head matches
16 games were played between these two sides until now. Surprisingly Brighton has a better result. Seagulls have recorded 7 victories comparing to 5 by the Foxes. 4 events finished with a draw.
Prediction for Leicester City Brighton and Hove Albion tip
In our opinion, Leicester City has more experience than the guests in the matches like this. We are backing them up to win and to collect the first three points of this season. Without diminishing anyone’s success and quality, Leicester simply has better players and more quality.
For the second bet, we would choose Leicester to score over 1.5 this match. If they managed to score 3 goals at Emirates against Arsenal, for sure, they could net at least two times on their own ground.
