Crystal Palace vs Leicester by Sylvester Felixus

Crystal-Palace
VS
Leicester
Leicester travel to Crystal Palace with the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table. Nerves will be high in the dressing room as Ranieri's lads look to take a tighter grip on the title.

 

Palace have had a pretty lackluster season and find themselves in 15th place with just 33 points. They have scored 7 goals in their last 5 games and conceded 10 in the same period. Their home form doesn't read much better. They have conceded goals in 11 of their last 15 games and have failed to score in front of their own fans 5 times.

 

Palace have drawn 2 of their last five games and have lost 3.

 

Leicester come here with a lot on the line. They will be fully aware of the ramifications of not getting a vital three points today. In their last five games they have managed to score 6 goals and have conceded 4 (2 against West Brom and 2 against Arsenal). They have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five.

 

Leicester won their last game against Palace back in October 1-0 and a similar scoreline looks likely here today.

 

Palace have a Goal Expectancy of 0.94, while Leicester's is 1.82.

 

In terms of ratings, Palace have an attacking rating 0.23 and a defensive rating of -0.50. Leicester's attacking rating is 0.73 (3rd best in the league) and a defensive rating of 0.00 (3rd best in the league).

 

Leicester look great value here. The bookies are underestimating their chances here by giving them 2.48 when they should be on the slim side of evens (possibly around 1.81).

 

Take the away team today in a game that should be quite short on goals. If Leicester take an early lead, expect a repeat of last week's fixture against Newcastle.
