Twelve months ago, Tottenham and Leicester City we fighting one of the greatest battles in footballing history and although now that battle does not exist anymore, a game between these two sides should still be one which is great for the neutral viewer. Neither side have much to play for at this point of the season but both sides will surely want to end the season of on a high.
Leicester City were never going to repeat last season but after a solid league finish and a great run in the Champions League, they will be happy with this season. This team has a great fan base and they will be at home for this match so I can simply imagine that they will want their fans to end the season on a happy note and win here can do that.
Tottenham on the other hand have once again failed to win a major trophy. Spurs are one of the best sides in the world but they never finish the job and that will be somewhat of a concern for them. That being said, they are currently in great form and I can only expect that they will also be keen to win this game.
All in all, I am expecting Tottenham to win this game. The Spurs are a better side and even without the home fans to back them, they will be good enough in my opinion to win this encounter. We are getting a decent price on this bet so this play makes a little bit of sense. Other than that, the under 2.5 goals makes sense since Tottenham are good defensively and have a habit of having low scoring games.
