Brighton vs LeicesterEnglish Premier League, KO: 20:00 Mar 6, 2021, Amex Stadium
BRIGHTON will be looking to move away from the relegation zone and get back to winning ways when they lock horns with Leicester on Saturday night.
Graham Potter's possession-based style of play has earned his side plenty of plaudits this season but the Seagulls are still looking over their shoulder now that Fulham have found some form.
Back-to-back defeats against Crystal Palace and West Brom respectively have left Potter's posse perched precariously above the relegation zone.
Brighton's lack of killer instinct has really shown up in recent weeks so the Seagulls will be hoping to finally find their shooting boots when Leicester arrive at the Amex on Saturday night.
The wheels began to fall off the Foxes Champions League hopes this time last season and recent results suggest that history could be about to repeat itself.
Indeed, Brendan Rodgers boys remain in third-place, but below-par performances against Arsenal and Burnley coupled with a mounting list could see the King Power club once again miss out on a ticket to Europe's top-table.
Goals have been at a premium in recent Premier League matches involving Brighton and I suspect another low-scoring affair could be in-store on Saturday night.
Eight of Brighton's last nine top-flight tussles have featured fewer than three match goals but it's worth mentioning that the Seagulls are without a clean sheet in four of their last five matches across all competitions.
With that in mind, I'll dip into Bet 365's Bet Builder market and combine under four match goals and over zero Leicester goals, a nice looking 20/21 shot.
Leicester have avoided defeat in each of their last nine Premier League road trips and they have scored at least one goal in all but one of those matches.
What's more, nine of 13 Premier League sides to visit this venue this season have made the bulge and given that the race for Champions League qualification could hardly be tighter, the Foxes can ill-afford to stumble on the south coast.
It's also worth noting that the above-mentioned Bet Builder has banked in eight of Leicester's last nine away matches in the Premier League and that adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula at the Amex on Saturday night.
I'll also take the 11/10 on offer with PaddyPower for each team to take a corner in each half and for each team to receive at least once card during this contest.
Both of these sides tend to rack up high corner counts, with Brighton averaging 7.3 on home turf, while Leicester are averaging over five flag kicks per 90 minutes.
With a closely-fought encounter anticipated a card apiece doesn't look like too much to ask for, not to mention the above-mentioned combination has clicked in each of the previous two meetings this season.
