England Premier League
(31 Mar 2018)
Brighton – Leicester
Brighton welcomes Leicester in a match of the 32nd round of the English Premier League.
Brighton: After 8 wins, 10 draws and 12 losses, the hosts are in the 12th position, having won 34 points so far. In the previous round, Brighton lost (2-0) against Everton in an away match. However, after that, they had one more defeat (2-0) against Manchester United in a match for the FA Cup. Anyway, they are two wins away from the magic number of 40 points, which nearly always helps a team avoid relegation.
Leicester: The away team is currently taking the 8th position in the league, with 40 points won, after 10 wins, 10 draws and 10 losses. Although Leicester comes to this round unmotivated after a home defeat (1-2) against Chelsea in the FA Cup game, they are still undefeated in their last 3 Premier League matches. Besides their ups-and-downs, they have managed to at least improve from last season.
Conclusion: The home team will be seeking to improve upon their 2-0 defeat to Everton last time out, a game in which they conceded good chances. Leicester ended a five-match winless run by beating (4-1) West Brom, a game in which they created a host of chances. This is expected to be a tight game though, with few goals between the two sides.
