Leicester City vs Blackburn Rovers Prediction & Match Preview

0

Championship winners Leicester City will be aiming to close out their season with victory as they host Blackburn Rovers in their season finale. Blackburn are desperate to escape the drop but given their recent form, should struggle at the King Power Stadium.

Having already secured automatic promotion Leicester City were officially crowned champions on Monday night after claiming a 3-0 victory at Coventry City. Jamie Vardy netted a brace while Kasey McAteer added the third.

That was the third straight victory for Leicester City, who have hit a higher gear in recent weeks in their pursuit of automatic promotion. Despite already emerging winners, Enzo Maresca’s men will be keen to close out their season with a win in front of their fans.

The King Power Stadium has been a fortress for Leicester City all season and they have won eight of their last nine home matches. However, they have kept just one clean sheet in the last five in that run.

Blackburn Rovers have endured a difficult campaign as they head into Saturday’s clash still not safe from relegation. However, they do have their destiny in their hands as a draw at the King Power Stadium would guarantee their safety.

The problem with Blackburn Rovers is that they have been far from their best in recent weeks having picked up just two wins from their last 15 Championship matches. They played out a 0-0 draw with Coventry City in their previous fixture.

Blackburn Rovers have shown some fight on their recent travels, claiming two wins from their last three away matches. John Eustace’s men edged out promotion chasing Leeds United in their previous away fixture and will have some confidence heading to the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 7/10 by bet365 to claim the win. A victory for Blackburn Rovers is valued at 17/4 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 16/5 with Paddy Power.

Blackburn Rovers have a 24-18 advantage with 16 draws from 58 previous matches against Leicester City. However, the Foxes ran out 4-1 winners in the reverse fixture back in October with Jamie Vardy among the goals.

Jamie Vardy has been particularly prolific in recent weeks, scoring four times in the last three matches to take his tally to 18 Championship goals for the season. The striker was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 11/8 by bet365 to score anytime on Saturday.

Sammie Szmodics has been the shining light for Blackburn Rovers in a disappointing campaign, scoring 25 Championship goals so far. The forward got Blackburn’s only goal in the reverse fixture and is priced at 11/4 by bet365 to get on the score sheet once again.

The reverse fixture produced over 4.5 goals and a similar outcome is priced at 3/1 by Unibet, who is also offering 27/20 for over 3.5 goals. Leicester City have scored in both halves in their last three matches and a repeat is priced at 5/4 by BoyleSports.

Leicester City won both halves in the reverse fixture and a similar outcome is priced at 19/5 by Unibet. Given the minimal odds for a straight home victory, a win and both teams to score could be considered at 2/1 with bet365.
