Leicester City will host Brentford this weekend to play its first match of the current season of the English Premier League.
Agonizingly inconsistent performances in the previous season saw Leicester finish in the 8th spot in the previous edition, missing a European berth for the first time in 3 seasons. Barring the victory in the FA Community Shield cup, the fans got nothing much to celebrate about, as the Foxes crashed out Europa League in the group stage itself.
Coach Brendan Rodgers has not clinched any new signing so far in the transfer market, and has lost a good player in Kasper Schmeichel, who made a move to Nice. Eldin Jakupovic is the second goalkeeper to leave the squad, causing a headache for the coach. Other big names who might bid adieu to the club include Wesley Fofana and James Maddison.
These are surely frustrating times for Rodgers, and he will need to make some quick moves if he wants to make a good start to the season. On the positive side, Leicester has won each of its last 4 pre-season friendlies, including a 1-0 victory in its most recent game against Sevilla. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scored the lone goal of the match.
Brentford, who was playing its first top-flight season since the formation of the Premier League, was a pleasant surprise, finishing 13th on the points table. They had a winning start to the season, defeating the heavyweight's Arsenal in their first ever Premier League match, and also scored a memorable 4-1 win over Chelsea. Coach Thomas Frank has been pretty busy during the pre-season, bringing in an array of new players. Some of the biggest signings include Keane Lewis-Potter, Aaron Hickey, Thomas Strakosha, and Ben Mee. T
hey will fill in for the departures of Christian Eriksen, Marcus Forss and Julian Jeanvier. With Christian Norgaard and Ivan Toney staying back, Brentford fans will be hoping that he puts up an even better performance this time around. The London club will go into this match with some confidence, as it beat Real Betis in the latest club friendly by 1-0.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Leicester City F. C. vs Brentford F. C. Premier League 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the King Power Stadium, Leicester, on 7th August 2022.
Brendan Rodgers is likely to keep Daniel Iverson between the sticks in this important match. James Justin, Daniel Amartey and Timothy Castagne are likely to hold the defence. The team will however be without the services of Ricardo Pereira and Harvey Barnes, both of whom are injured.
As for the visitors, they have no major injury scares as od now, and likely to travel with a full strength squad. The back 4 formation helped them keep a clean sheet against Real Betis, and Thomas Frank may put up a similar combination.
While Brentford are clearly a spirited club, the hosts still hold enough power in their arsenal to overcome them.
Bet on a Leicester win.
Brentford has scored at least once in 5 of its last 6 matches, while 4 of the last 6 games for Leicester have seen both teams score. Also, 4 of the last 6 encounters between the two teams have seen the net ripple at both ends. We are therefore recommending a BTTS bet.
Each of the last 3 head to head clashes between the two clubs has seen a score of over 2.5. 5 of the last 6 games for Leicester and 3 of the last 5 matches for Brentford too have seen at least 3 goals scored in them. We are therefore predicting a high-scoring game this Sunday.
