      Analysis: Leicester City vs Manchester City (29 December 2015)
      « Reply #1 on: December 28 2015, 11:20 »

      Leicester City and Manchester City face at King Power Stadium, in a match for the 19th round of the Premier League. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 2 wins and 1 draw in the last 3 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 13‑12‑2014, in a match for the Premier League, Manchester City won by (0‑1). The only goal of the match was scored by F. Lampard (40' ). Although this is a match between 1st and 3rd of the league table, it’s actually a match between the 3rd best in home matches and the 12th best in away matches.

      Analysis of Leicester

      The home team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 38 points won, after 11 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Everton, by (2‑3). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Liverpool, by (1‑0). Interestingly enough, this is a team that has had better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 21 points in away matches and only 17 at their stadium. For the league, Leicester City won 17 points out of 24 possible points, after 5 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 8 home matches.

      In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 4 home matches. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 18 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

      Leicester comes to this match after an away loss against Liverpool, registering the second consecutive loss in the league. After this hard match they are now up against Manchester City. Despite the latest negative results, coach Claudio Ranieri should use the same defensive strategy, exploring counterattacks whenever possible. Absent due to injuries are Ritchie de Laet and Matty James.

      Analysis of Man City

      The away team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 35 points won, after 11 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Arsenal, by (2‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Sunderland, by (4‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 11 points in away matches and 24 points at their stadium, with 29 goals scored and 12 goals conceded at home, against 8 goals scored and 8 conceded in away matches. In the last 8 away league matches Manchester City has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 24 possible.

      In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 5 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 5 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 18 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Manchester City comes to this match motivated by a comfortable 4-1win over Sunderland, with goals by Sterling, Touré, Bony and De Bruyne. Coach Manuel Pellegrini should play in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation, attacking with mnay players in an organized fashion. It’s not certain though whether Aguero or Bony will play in front. Zabaleta and Nasri are injured, while Kompany is still in doubt.

      Betting suggestion:

      Analysing the last head to heads we expect an open match with many goal opportunities for both teams. Moreover, both Leicester and Manchester City like to attack and allow spaces in the back , increasing the tendency for goals, which is why the final score is likely to be over 2,5 goals.
