Fulham vs Leicester – Prediction, and Match Preview
Fulham vs Leicester – The Foxes are in an extremely precarious position, level on points with teams like Nottingham Forest and Leeds United who are just outside the red zone.
It is obvious that a victory over Fulham is essential for Dean Smith and his team given that the final three rounds of the season include games against teams like Liverpool, Newcastle, and West Ham.
Seven days ago, when they only drew 2-2 at home to direct rivals Everton (who are one point below them in the red zone), Leicester squandered a significant opportunity to record one crucial victory.
On this particular occasion, James Maddison’s missed penalty would have given the Foxes a 3-1 lead. Will it ultimately determine whether the squad plays in the top division?
As a whole, it was one of the most exciting games of the season as Leicester and Everton combined for 38 shots, 14 of which were on goal.
On the other hand, Fulham is currently in tenth place in the league and has little chance of moving up in the final four games of the season.
They will enter this game coming off back-to-back defeats to Aston Villa and Manchester City. They have lost seven of their past nine games across all competitions, and Aleksandar Mitrovic, their leading scorer, is still unavailable due to suspension.
Fulham vs Leicester – Betting Analysis
In the past four meetings, there have been two victories for each team. Leicester’s recent 15 matches versus Fulham at Craven Cottage have resulted in losses of nine, draws of three, and three victories for Leicester.
In neither of the previous two head-to-head matches between these rivals, three or more goals were scored. Because they have such a demanding schedule for the next three games, the visitors just cannot afford to make a mistake in the capital during this encounter.
Due to the absence of the hosts’ two primary offensive weapons (Andreas Pereira is injured and Mitrovic is suspended), we can only back the visitors to win at 2.60 odds.
Looking at the goalscorers odds, we strongly like Jamie Vardy to score the game’s opening goal at the 6.50 odds given the experienced striker’s goal against Everton seven days prior, which he finished beautifully after receiving a pass from James Maddison.
What are the best odds for this match?
Checking out the betting prices for the game in the full-time result market, a win for Fulham is available for 2.66, going for the game finishing all-square is 3.58, and betting on a win for Leicester City comes in at 2.64. These are the best returns that can be secured at this very moment.
