Bournemouth are 4-2 against Leicester City since December 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. Bournemouth will head out on the road to face off against Leicester City at 10:00 a.m. ET at King Power Stadium. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W’.
Bournemouth took three shots at the goal on Tuesday, none of which found their mark. They fell to Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0.
Meanwhile, Leicester City hasn’t won a game since February 19th, a trend that continued on Tuesday. It was a hard-fought game, but they had to settle for a 2-1 loss against Aston Villa. The match was a 1-1 toss-up at halftime, but Leicester City was shut out in the second half.
Bournemouth beat Leicester City by a goal in their previous matchup last October, winning 2-1. The rematch might be a little tougher for Bournemouth since the squad won’t have the home-pitch advantage this time around. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
Leicester City is a solid favorite against Bournemouth, according to the latest English Premier League odds, being -120 to win.
The over/under is set at 2.5 goals.
