Leicester has had a terrible start to the season. The team, winning the English league title not so long ago and then regularly qualifying for European competitions, is currently sitting in last place in the standings. It seemed that in their first league game, the Foxes lost two points at home to Brentford, having just a 2:2 draw, but almost two months have passed since then, and that point is only one in the Blue's collection, and the last one. They suffered six defeats in the next six meetings by a combined score of 8:20.
Nottingham seriously took their long-awaited return to the English Premier League, signing many newcomers. In the opening rounds of the league season, it seemed that all these investments would bring enormous benefits as the Foresters picked up four points in the opening three rounds, but then there was a crisis. The Reds failed to pick up a single point in the next four games, losing alternately to Tottenham, Man City, Bournemouth, and Fulham by a combined score of 4:14. As a result, they are now in the penultimate spot in the standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Leicester and Nottingham approach the encounter in a poor mood. The Blues have already suffered six defeats in a row, while the Reds have been without a point in four games. Possibly, the opponent's side, who will play on home soil, will have more chance of success against the Championship underdogs, and they have more experience and chemistry than the Premier League newcomer. As a result, a bet on Leicester's victory at odds of around 1.81 is in order.
Leicester and Nottingham occupy the bottom two places in the English league table, but their matches are almost always fun to watch, as both teams have a frustratingly weak defense. At the same time, they manage to squeeze something out of the attack. All this led to 32 goals scored in seven games for the Foxes (5.33 goals per game average), while the Foresters have scored 23 goals (3.83 goals per game average). Historically, the opponents play together productively, so the total over 3.5 goals with odds close to 2.61 seems to be the best option now.
The days of Jamie Vardy seem to be gone for good. He continues to be a regular player this season but has not scored in seven games, so Leicester's attack will need a new hero. Gradually Patson Daka, who already netted five goals last season and has scored once in his league debut, is trying to step into that role. At the same time, the 23-year-old forward is capable of scoring, as evidenced by the Russian football fans when the Zambian netted four times against Spartak Moscow in the Europa League. All this suggests that a bet on a Patson Daka goal is worth considering at around 2.50.
