Leicester City and Crystal Palace face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at King Power Stadium. When these two teams faced off on April 10th it was Leicester City that secured the 2-1 victory. 

Crystal Palace comes into this game sitting in 15th place in the standings having picked up nine points. Last Sunday, against Leeds United, Crystal Palace were able to secure a 2-1 victory. Crystal Palace fell behind in the 10th minute, but they scored two goals after the 24th minute and were able to pick up the three points. They had 55 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Nathaniel Clyne, James McArthur, Jack Butland, Nathan Ferguson, and Chris Richards are all dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City, who sits in 20th place in the standings having picked up four points. Two games ago against Nottingham Forest, Leicester City was able to win 4-0, but in the last game against AFC Bournemouth, they were defeated 2-1. Patson Dakka opened up the scoring in the 10th minute for Leicester City. In the second half, though, they gave up two goals within three minutes, and that led to the loss. Leicester City had 56 percent of the possession and five shots on goal. Timothy Castagne suffered an eye injury in the last game, and probably won’t be able to go here. Jamie Vardy came off the bench in the last game, but he might move back into the starting lineup here. 

Leicester City needs to start picking up points, and that means they need to start scoring goals. In this game, I expect they are going to push numbers forward here, which is going to leave their back line open. I do expect at least three goals scored here, and that will lead to this game going over the total. Back the over 2.5 goals to cash.
