The program of the 28th round of the championship of England will continue Brentford and Leicester. The match will take place on the evening of March 18 at Brentford Community Stadium.
On March 15, Brentford made amends for their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Everton. On the road, in a rescheduled game of Matchday 8, Thomas Frank’s side beat Southampton (0-2). Ivan Tonei marked his 15th goal of the season. He is still the AFL’s third leading scorer, after Holland and Kane.
Currently, the Bees are on the 8th position in the standings. After 26 rounds they have 41 points. Only three points separate them from the top five.
In 13 matches on the home field in the championship, Brentford only 1 defeat, with 7 victories and 5 draws. Scored 27 goals and conceded 13. Only fighters for the top 4 perform better in England at their fields
Leicester are terrible again. In the last round the team was unable to oppose Chelsea (1:3). This is the fourth consecutive “loser” for the “Foxes”. They are again in the midst of the struggle for survival. They have 24 points on their books, which is enough to keep them in 16th place. Bournemouth, which is on the 18th position in the table (18th), also have 24 points on the account, but the additional indicators are worse. I can’t help but notice that the team scored only 1 goal in the previous 4 games. And this despite the fact that previously there were no problems with effectiveness. Recall, in 26 games the team scored 37 goals (with 46 missed). On average, Leicester scored 3.2 goals per game.
Now let’s look back at how Rodgers’ men are performing on the road in the current EPL. In 13 meetings not a single draw was recorded: 4 victories and 9 defeats.
On the one hand, the hosts have every chance to win. But on the other hand, we should not forget that they had a difficult trip in the middle of the week. Yes, they managed to beat Southampton, but it took a lot of effort. We should not forget about it.
Betting on the guests, it seems to me, would be a big mistake. They are in terrible shape. And in general, during the whole current season they poorly perform on the road.
We think, a bet on the victory of tired, but powerful Brentford, looks much more promising than a bet on the problematic Leicester.
