Leicester vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview
Leicester vs Newcastle
English Premier League
Date: 26 December 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
Leicester and Newcastle will lock horns in one of the most exciting Premier League games of the Boxing Day schedule at King Power Stadium.
Both teams finished the pre-World Cup campaign on a high with successive victories. They have both been equally successful in the mid-week’s League Cup games, meaning we should be in for a thrilling afternoon of football on Monday.
Leicester are on a run of four subsequent victories in all competitions. They have also won four of the last five Premier League ties to climb to the 13th position in the standings.
Youri Tielemans, Ayoze Perez, and Jamie Vardy were on target in the 0-3 drubbing of lower-division Milton Keynes Dons on Tuesday evening in the League Cup.
Newcastle joined Leicester in the League Cup quarterfinal after a 1-0 win over Bournemouth six days ago. Adam Smith’s own goal made the difference but it is worth noting that the Magpies were by far the superior side on the pitch on the occasion.
Newcastle are sky-high third in the Premier League standings after 15 rounds. They own the joint-best defensive record in the entire league with just 11 goals conceded in 15 games.
It will be very interesting to see how Eddie Howe’s stern back line deals with attacking-minded Leicester who have scored and conceded 25 goals apiece so far in the season.
Leicester have kept four consecutive clean sheets in all competitions going into this tie. They only lost 0-1 to the likes of Manchester City back in November at King Power Stadium. Newcastle have the joint-best defensive record in the league.
We will shoot for the Draw & Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 4.33 odds. You can also try your luck with the 1-1 correct score bet at the 7.00 odds.
