Leicester vs Manchester City: Predictions and Betting Tips

17:15, Aug 07 2021
Leicester vs Manchester City predictions for this Community Shield battle on Saturday at Wembley Stadium. Leicester and Manchester City will battle it out for the first title of the season in England – who will emerge as Community Shield champions? Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Leicester

Leicester will be contesting their second Community Shield final in recent years, having come runners up in 2016, losing 1-2 to Manchester United in that match.

The pre-season has not given us much insight into Leicester’s form, as they have only played three games and against opponents of a lower calibre.

Of the last five matches against Manchester City, Leicester have recorded one win, and four defeats.

Manchester City

Manchester City are enjoying their third Community Shield final in recent years, and they won the title on the previous two occasions, against Liverpool and Chelsea. On this occasion, they have earned the right to play this match because they are the reigning Premier League champions.

City’s pre-season has not given us much insight into the current state of the team either, as they have only played two games against lower-tier opposition.

Knowing Pep Guardiola and his habit of experimenting with the line-up in important matches, it is likely that there will be some players involved who we do not normally see, and those who were in the Euros will not be taking part in this match.

Key Stats:

  • Four consecutive losses for Leicester
  • Four consecutive matches conceding at least one goal for Leicester
  • Two wins in the pre-season for Manchester City (2-0, 4-0)
  • Manchester City have only conceded one goal in their last four games

Leicester vs Manchester City Predictions

At first glance, City might seem like the favourites to win this match, but as Leicester are a team that are less used to winning titles, they will be incredibly motivated to win the match. Furthermore, City have a lot of international players who played at the Euro, so we think Pep Guardiola will field a very unusual starting eleven, while Leicester have most of their key players at their disposal. Therefore we think Leicester can win this match.
