Brighton & Hove Albion is welcoming Leicester City to American Express Community Stadium in round 27 in the English Premier League.
Brighton has had a nice run for a while there, but they haven’t won any of their last 5 games while losing 3 of those 5 games. Brighton is now on a 2-game losing streak with 3 conceded goals and only 1 scored goal. Brighton is in 16th place with 26 points, but they are still in big danger of relegation because they are only 3 points away from the relegation zone. Offensively, Brighton is a weak team, and they are averaging 1 scored goal per game, but their defense has been decent with 33 conceded goals. In their last game against WBA on the road, Brighton was the better team with 71% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a decent 82% of the correct passes. Brighton was losing since the 11th minute, and they have missed 2 penalties in this match. Brighton has lost this game 1-0. Brighton is showing some potential, but they need to start beating teams that are their direct competitors, and not losing to weak teams like WBA.
Leicester is in a bit of a slump right now, and they haven’t won any of their last 3 games. During this streak, Leicester has scored only 2 goals while conceding 6 goals. Even without a win in those 3 games, Leicester is still in 3rd place with 50 points, 46 scored goals, and 31 conceded goals. Vardy is the leading goalscorer for Leicester with 12 goals, but he was injured for a while. Barnes added 9 goals, while Maddison added 8 goals. Maddison has added 5 assists, while Vardy and Barnes added 4 assists each. The injury list is long for Leicester, and Praet, Morgan, Justin, Perez, Maddison, Barnes, and Evans are all injured. In their EPL game against Burnley on the road, Leicester has had 62% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 82% of the correct passes. After being behind, Leicester tied the score in the 34th minute. The final result of this match was 1-1. All the injuries and bad form have cost Leicester a lot over the last few weeks, and they have gotten knocked out of the Europa League by Slavia Prague. The first leg of this matchup ended in a 0-0 draw, but Leicester has lost 0-2 at home. Leicester is one of the most exciting teams in the EPL, but they better get back on track because Chelsea and Everton are pressuring them from behind, and their Champions League spot is in danger.
Burnley hasn’t won any of their last 5 games, while Leicester hasn’t lost any of their last 12 games on the road. Brighton has had some success against Leicester at home, and I think they could surprise them here as well. Leicester is not a favorite here, but I have a feeling they will have a decent game which will be enough for a draw.
