Asian Handicap
Pick: 2 (-0.5)
Odds: 1.99
Stake: 1

Match date: 30/04/2021

Southampton will try to upset Leicester City at St Mary's, but I think they can't. The Saints are on the 15th place with 36 points. It is clear the fans are disappointed. Southampton were excellent in the first part of the season, even spent some time on the first place. In November Southampton climbed on the top of England's top division for the first time in 32 years. Interesting, the club then tweeted to 'STOP THE COUNT', taking a dig at Donald Trump. However, the actual form is poor. They have lost four of their last five matches in the Premier League, plus suffered elimination from the FA Cup after losing exactly to Leicester. To be worse, Hasenhuttl has one big injury issue ahead of the match. The club leading goalscorer Danny Ings will miss the game because of a thigh injury. In addition, Ryan Bertrand, Oriol Romeu and Will Smallbone remain sidelined.

Leicester City are currently on the third position with 62 points. Chelsea are four points behind, so the third place is not under threat this weekend. But there is no space for any relaxation and three points from this match are very important. The actual form is good, Brendan Rodgers' men have won the last two Premier League fixtures. In addition, Leicester secured the FA Cup final after won 1:0 against Southampton thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho's goal. This will be the first FA Cup final for Leicester City in 52 years. Rodgers is still without Harvey Barnes who's ruled out for the rest of the season due to knee injury. 

Leicester are clear favorites against out-of-form Southampton. The Foxes have two players able to make a difference in this match. Of course, one of them is Vardy, but don't forget Kelechi Iheanacho. The later has scored 14 goals in his last 14 appearances. I think Leicester will win here.

LOST Score: 1:1 Profit: -1
