Brighton vs Leicester City Preview
Seeing the Foxes as outsiders for this one may come as a surprise but their injury list is not one to be taken lightly, with Barnes and Maddison proving to be big misses in the final third.
Brendan Rodgers’ side created very little at Burnley without the pair and were lucky to escape with a draw, largely thanks to the goalkeeping heroics of Kasper Schmeichel.
They could face similar struggles on the south coast on Saturday as Brighton have only conceded five times in their last nine and kept a clean sheet on five occasions – albeit scoring only five goals themselves in that time.
Brighton vs Leicester City Tips and Predictions
Under 2.0, 2.5 goals on the Asian goal line is offered at 1.880 with bet365 and looks the best way to oppose goals at the Amex Stadium, with this paying out in full if there are fewer than two goals and half the stake refunded if there are exactly two.
Eight of Brighton’s last nine in the Premier League have seen under 2.5 goals whilst four of Leicester’s last five top-flight away matches have also done so.
