Leicester City hosts Southampton in round 22 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, January 11th at King Power Stadium (Leicester)
Although Leicester lost two games at the finish of last year (to Manchester City and Liverpool), it continues to hold the second line in the standings. After those losses, the Foxes played in Newcastle against the local Magpies and West Ham in London. They won in both matches and scored more than one goal. The Foxes also beat Wigan in the FA Cup and managed to score two goals. No one will probably catch up with Liverpool this season. But Leicester will compete for medals. The team has already scored 46 goals. Only its last offenders, Man City and Liverpool, have more goals scored in the championship.

Southampton showed a perfect game at the end of last year, and the new one began with a victory. The Saints didn’t lose in the last five matches. Four of them were won. And the team managed to get to the 12th line in the standings. And the Saints beat Tottenham and Chelsea. These facts do not allow betting on the victory of the vice-leader of the championship.
But the number of goals conceded by Southampton allows us to believe in the performance on the part of Leicester. If the Foxes scored 46 times, the Saints conceded almost the same amount. 38 goals flew into their net. Only Norwich, which is last in the standings, has three more. Leicester has Vardi, who is determined to become the top scorer of the championship. He already scored 17 goals in 19 matches of the tournament. He may well aggrieve the defense of Southampton. And not once. In the first leg match, he scored a hat trick. And the Saints were disgraced in front of their fans (0-9). We shouldn’t wait for such a score in this game, but Leicester is likely to score at least two goals. If we look at 10 home matches of the championship, the Foxes scored less than two goals only three times.
Prediction for the match: Leicester to score over 1.5 goals
