The Wolves and Leicester City face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Molineux Stadium. When these two teams faced off in August of 2021 it was Leicester City that won 1-0.
The Wolves are having a nice season and coming into this game they sit in 7th place in the standings having picked up 37 points. In the last game against Tottenham the defense was strong again not giving up a goal and that led to the 2-0 victory. Raul Jiminez opened up the scoring in the 6th minute, and Leander Dendoncker added another goal in the 18th minute. The Wolves have scored 21 goals total while their defense has given up 17 goals. Raul Jiminez has been the top player scoring five goals and adding two assists. In this game, if the Wolves defense is good, they will be in good shape to come away with the victory.
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who sits in 11th place in the standings having picked up 27 points. This is a down season for Leicester City, and the biggest issue has been with the defense. In the last game against West Ham, they played to a 2-2 draw. Leicester City gave up a goal in the 91st minute, and that led to the draw. Leicester City has scored 36 goals total while their defense has given up 41 goals total. Jamie Vardy has been the top player for Leicester City, but he is still out with injury. James Maddison has also been good, putting up six goals and adding three assists.
Leicester City’s defense has been a big issue and it’s going to let them down again in this game. I also don’t see Leicester City getting too many good scoring chances going against this Wolves defense, and this one will get out of hand early. Back the Wolves to cash the plus money.
