Leicester vs Newcastle: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:00, May 07 2021
Leicester vs Newcastle prediction for Friday’s round 35 Premier League clash at King Power Stadium in Leicester. Third-placed Leicester host 17th placed Newcastle in a match to hold on to the third spot for Leicester and to stay safe of relegation for Newcastle. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Leicester to hold on to the third spot

It has been a very good season for Leicester and with four matches remaining in the season, Brendan Rodgers’ team is guaranteed a Champions League spot unless they lose all of their four matches and Tottenham win all four of their matches. Leicester have lost two of their last five matches and have not lost in the last three matches.

In their last game, The Foxes drew with Southampton in a match where they dominated completely with 71% of possession and 23 goal attempts of which nine were on target. Leicester went down in the second half but could salvage a point after Johnny Evans scored the equalizer. This was the second match in a row where Leicester conceded first but could come back.

Newcastle almost guaranteed Premier League action next season

Newcastle have been hanging around the bottom of half of the table for most parts of the season. They are relatively safe from relegation being nine points ahead of 18th placed Fulham. With four matches left to play, The Magpies need one win to secure themselves in the Premier League.

Two wins in 11 matches, Steve Bruce had a very tough time at Newcastle’s dugout this season and it may be his last. In their last match, The Magpies lost at home to Arsenal 2-0 after a very weak display from Bruce’s team. Newcastle need to improve on their five-goal attempts of which just one was on target in the next games 

Key Stats

  • Leicester have scored in nine of their last 11 matches 
  • Leicester have won nine of their 17 home matches
  • Leicester have  won three of their last four matches
  • Newcastle have scored in four of their last five matches
  • Newcastle have four away wins this season 
  • Newcastle have won one of their last six away matches

Leicester vs Newcastle Prediction

Looking at the stats, Leicester look like the better team and are the favorites to win this match and hang on to their third spot. Brendan Rodgers will make sure his team has the full focus in this match not to lose any points.

Newcastle will have to get three points to make sure they stay in the Premier League. Steve Bruce will want to get those points early and not leave it late in the season.

We think Leicester are capable of winning this match and we think there will be two or more goals in this match.
