Leicester City vs West Brom

, KO: 12:30 Apr 20, 2024, King Power Stadium
West Brom

Leicester City will be looking to snap a difficult run of form as they host West Brom in a Championship fixture on Saturday. The Foxes are still solid at home and should have the upper hand over their visitors, who are often unconvincing on their travels.

It has been a strange title race in the Championship with frontrunners constantly dropping points at the business end of the season. There have been constant changes to the leadership, with Leicester City now second on the standings after losing their last two matches.

Leicester City head into Saturday’s clash off the back of successive 1-0 defeats in the Championship. First they were beaten at Millwall before suffering a similar defeat to Plymouth Argyle in their previous fixture.

The good news for Leicester City is that they have been on the road in their last two matches and are returning to the fortress of the King Power Stadium. Enzo Maresca’s men have won nine of their last 12 Championship home matches, although they are without a clean sheet in the last four in that run.

West Brom are also challenging around the top end of the table as they sit fifth on the standings, right in the mix for the promotion playoffs. However, they have been far from their best lately with just one win from their last five matches.

The problem for West Brom is that they seem unable to keep things tight at the back, a trait that has seen them draw three of their last five matches. Carlos Corberan’s men were also beaten last time out in the Championship, falling 1-0 at home to Sunderland.

West Brom have also found things difficult on their travels, with just two wins from their last 10 away matches. They have also been plagued by too many draws on the road having been held five times in the last seven in that run.

How the bookies view it

Leicester City have the upper hand among the bookies with a home win priced at 3/5 with Coral. A victory for West Brom is valued at 11/2 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 16/5 by bet365.

Head to head

West Brom have a 36-28 advantage with 15 draws from 75 previous matches against Leicester City. However, the Foxes have won the last four meetings and claimed a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Stephy Mavididi is often involved in most attacking plays for Leicester City and will be vital in their resurgence. The forward has 12 Championship goals and is priced at 15/8 by bet365 to find the net on Saturday.

With Brandon Thomas-Asante suspended for Saturday’s clash, Michael Johnston will be the one to watch for West Brom. The striker has four goals in the last four away matches and is priced at 11/2 by Paddy Power to maintain his scoring run.

Anything else catch the eye?

Both teams were on target in the reverse fixture and a repeat is priced at 17/20 with Paddy Power. That clash also produced over 2.5 goals, which is valued at 4/5 by Betfred while bet365 is offering 11/5 for over 3.5 goals.

Leicester City are priced at minimal odds for a straight victory, so a win and over 2.5 goals could be considered at 7/5 with William Hill.
