Leicester are fighting for the Top 4 in the Premier League
Leicester are in 3rd place in the Premier League. And they continue to fight for a place in the Top 4, giving the right to participate in the Champions League.
The problem is that with two consecutive losses from Man City and West Ham, they put themselves in a slightly awkward situation.
They are now only one point above the Hammers. Although with a game less, of course.
But we can't talk about any mini crisis after losses of two of the teams in the best shape at the moment.
However, there are certainly fears of a lost chance at the end of last season in such circumstances.
There are two other troubling facts.
On the one hand, Leicester are so to speak the most unconvincing host of all the top teams with 7-1-7.
On the other hand, they have not had a home victory against their current rival for many years.
All these, otherwise leading to all sorts of superstitions among betting statistics, serve me more as a guarantee for the ultimate mobilization of the hosts.
Which, combined with the fact that the Foxes are also the 4th highest-scoring team in the Premier League, which meets the weakest defense, will most likely lead to their expressive success.
West Bromwich Albion seeks salvation
In the same period, the UBA certainly continued the struggle for survival in the Premier League.
And this can be seen in their results from the last 10 meetings with 3-3-4 in them.
They enter this match after two victories with a difference over Chelsea and Southampton. Which, of course, are not to be underestimated.
But in one case they had numerical superiority. And in the other, their opponent was thinking about the semifinals of the FA Cup.
Prediction for Leicester - West Bromwich
For this match I will bet on the team of Leicester for all the reasons I have shared so far.
And besides, too many records would be broken by the team of West Bromwich Albion with a possible victory.
At first glance, for example, I remember a long series of 9 away games without losing this stadium.
Or for a series of 3 consecutive victories in the Premier League for the first time.
Or for the second time in a row as a guest. Provided they only have 2 for the whole season.
Too many and all these possibilities come to me.
I would only give UBA a chance to score at least one goal in the match.
Allardyce himself has no choice but to play to win. And pray for the miracle.
A result match with an exchange of goals and a home victory is my final choice for prediction.
