Southampton vs Leicester City Prediction: Premier League Match on 30.04.2021
Leicester City will be looking for a third straight win in the league this weekend, as they come up against the side that they recently beat in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
Premier League Preview
Leicester City look to have learnt from their lessons last season, as they have stayed strong despite being under intense pressure for a place in the top four in the Premier League. The Foxes have recovered after losing back-to-back games, as they have won their last two. However, there will be a feeling that they will need to take maximum points from this fixture at the weekend, as they have huge fixtures against Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur before the end of the season.
Leicester currently have a seven-point advantage in the race for Champions League football this season, and one more win could be seen as enough from their perspective. The character of the team was questioned in their last league game, as they needed to come back from a goal down to see off Crystal Palace on Monday night. Kelechi Iheanacho scored the winning goal at the King Power last time out, which was his tenth goal of the season.
Southampton are almost assured of their Premier League safety, despite a nervy second half of the season. The Saints have been dropping down the standings quickly since the turn of the year, but the nine-point advantage that they have over 18th-placed Fulham already looks to be wide enough. To be in any kind of danger over the closing weeks of the season, Fulham will need to win every game that they have left, while the Saints would need to lose their last five.
Southampton vs Leicester City Head to Head
Leicester have picked up three victories in the last four meetings against Southampton in all competitions. The Foxes recently beat the Saints 1-0 in the semi-final between the sides in the FA Cup. Southampton’s only win against the Foxes was a 2-1 success in January 2020.
Southampton vs Leicester City Prediction
Southampton have struggled against Leicester in recent meetings, and it would look difficult to see anything other than a win for the travelling side. The Saints have lost their last two, while the Foxes have won their last two. It could be a big win for the travelling side this coming weekend.
