Leicester City vs. Southampton Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews

The last time Leicester played Southampton, the Foxes emerged with a historic 9-0 win. Surely the same can’t happen again? Leicester are riding high, and have more points at this stage of the season than when they won the title in 2015-16.

Past Meetings

Leicester famously beat Southampton 9-0 earlier in the season at St. Mary’s. Prior to that, Southampton won at Leicester in January 2019, going two goals up before Wilfred Ndidi pulled one back, but the 10-man Saints held on.

Team News

The Foxes will be without top scorer Jamie Vardy, who is suffering from a muscle injury. The striker has missed the last two games, the league win over Newcastle and the FA Cup win over Wigan. Vardy aside, Brendan Rogers’ side have no other injuries worries heading into the game.

The Saints have no fresh injury worries. Midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojblerg and left winger Moussa Djenepo are one yellow card away from a suspension, as both sit on four yellow cards.

Leicester vs. Southampton Preview and Predictions

It really is difficult to see anything other than a home victory in this game. Whilst Southampton have done well to bounce back from that now infamous 9-0 hammering by Leicester, you still see The Foxes emerging with all three points. Leicester have proven they can win without Jamie Vardy, and are 1.57 to get the three points here.

The Saints are unbeaten in their last four games, and Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side are climbing up the table. They currently lie 12th in the Premier League, and have a decent away record as of late, but you would still expect Leicester to pick up all three points. Southampton are 6.10 to overturn expectations, with the draw at 4.20.

Recommended Bets

Leicester to score over 2.5 goals at 2.75

They won’t get another nine-goal haul but even without Vardy, Rodgers’ side are a goal threat. They scored twice against West Ham, three against Newcastle and put two past Wigan in the cup. They can get three here.

James Maddison to score anytime at 3.10

In Vardy’s absence it’s crucial for Leicester’s aspirations of finishing at least second that his teammates step up, and while Maddison has had a good season so far, a few more goals wouldn’t go amiss. He netted against Newcastle, but that was his first league goal in almost a month, so he has room for improvement, starting here.
