Leicester is hosting Brentford at King Power Stadium in round 30 of the English Premier League. Leicester has been in decent form lately, they have won some games, but they have lost in their last 2 games in a row. Brentford has ended their agony a couple of weeks ago, they look a lot better now, and they are on a 2-game winning streak.
Leicester has lost to Arsenal in the EPL last weekend without scoring a goal, while they have also lost to Rennes in the Conference League earlier this week, but they were able to score in that game, and that is why they were able to advance to the next stage. In the EPL, Leicester is in 12th place with now, they have 33 points, and unless they win the Conference League, they will not be playing in Europe next season. Vardy has gotten back from injury a couple of weeks ago, scored a goal, but then he got injured again. There are a few other players who have been injured as well or Leicester. Vardy is their leading goalscorer with 10 goals, while Maddison has added 7 goals. Leicester is in bad form right now, they are conceding a lot of goals, but they are still scoring a lot as well, and that might get them some more points until the end of the season.
As I’ve mentioned, Brentford is on a 2-game winning streak right now, and with that, they have gained some distance from the relegation zone in the EPL. With 30 points, Brentford is now in 15th place, but they are still fairly close to the relegation zone. In their last 2 games, Brentford’s offense was playing well, they have scored 5 goals, and they have even kept a clean sheet in their last game. The schedule is not easy for Brentford until the end of the season, but I don’t think they will need much to secure their spot in the EPL. There are only 3 injured players for Brentford right now, while Toney is their leading goalscorer with 11 goals. Apart from him, there is no one else who could score more goals, and that is usually the case with these smaller teams. Brentford is in excellent form right now, they are playing well on both ends, and if only they could keep it up a little while longer.
Leicester has been pretty sloppy for most of the season, and understandably so with all the injuries they have had, and still have. I think Leicester will score here, they are at home after all, but Brentford is in great form, and they will score as well.
