Premier League: Sunderland vs Leicester City Football Match Preview and Prediction
Sunderland will host Leicester City in the English Premier League at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, with both teams aiming to win the match in order to escape relegation. QPR and Burnley have already been relegated last weekend with only one relegation spot remains. Currently, Hull City sits at the third relegation spot with 34 points. Sunderland sits at sixteenth place with 36 points, while Leicester City are at fifteenth position with 37 points. Sunderland and Leicester City will be looking for a win to avoid relegation and to qualify for the Premier League football next season.
Sunderland are in a good form with their last two wins in the row, including the major victory against Everton at Goodison Park that helped the team to move out of the relegation zone. Sunderland also have an impressive record against Leicester City. In the last six meetings between the two teams in the League, Sunderland have won four and lost none. Leicester City are also in excellent shape with six win from their last seven matches in the Premier League. Leicester City are just three point ahead of the relegation zone with two games remaining against Sunderland and the QPR.
Both teams have injury concerns. Sunderland will miss midfielders Ricardo Alvarez and Emanuele Giaccherini, while John O’Shea and Jack Rodwell are doubts for the game. Leicester City will be playing without Matty James, while Leonardo Ulloa and David Nugent are doubts.
Both teams are in good shape over the past few weeks and have the potential to win this game. Both sides have scored a couple of goals in their last few games. Leicester City have scored 18 goals in their last 8 games with at-least 1 goal each game, while Sunderland have scored 8 goals in their last 6 games with at-least 1 goal each game. It’s very difficult to predict the winner of the game but considering the past performances and statistics we expect both teams will score at-least one goal.
