Leicester City and Burnley meet at King Power Stadium, in a match for the 15th round of the Premier League. In this stadium, the history of direct confrontations is favorable to the home team, which records 1 win and 2 draws in the last 3 matches. In fact, the last time these two teams played a match at this stadium was on 17-09-2016, in a match for the Premier League which ended with a Leicester City win by (3-0). The goals of the match were scored by I. Slimani (45 ‘e 48’) and B. Mee (78 ‘Autogolo) for Leicester City. In this game the home factor may be decisive, since both teams present considerable differences in the results achieved at home and as a visitor.
After 4 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses, the home team is currently in the 9 th position, with 17 points won. In the last match, they have won at home against Tottenham Hotspur by (2-1), after in the previous match they have tied (1-1) an away match against West Ham United. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 20 conceded. For the league, Leicester City won 10 points out of 21 possible points, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in the last 7 home matches. The team has conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, so they have not presented great defensive solidity, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 14 matches in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 7 games in which he suffered the first goal.
The Leicester City enters the field for this game a little less pressured, after having returned to the victories by the English league, thus interrupting a fast that lasted three days, although only suffered a defeat in that period. On the occasion, he did not have a great performance, having finished very few times, but managed to take advantage of the few goal opportunities he had to win at Tottenham at home. The defensive performance of the team is improving and contrasts a lot with what he had been showing since the start of the competition, so much so that he still has one of the seven worst defenses. One of the weak points of the club is the change of passes, an issue in which it has the highest average of errors, which ultimately influences the possession of the ball and the lack of good scoring opportunities. The one who has been doing good performances regularly is midfielder Ndidi, who must be in the starting line-up.
The away team is currently in the 6 th position of the league, with 25 points won, after 7 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost at home against Arsenal, by (0-1). In the last match, they won in an away match against AFC Bournemouth, by (1-2). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 25 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 13 goals scored and 15 conceded. For the league, Burnley won 14 points out of 21 possible points, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 7 away matches. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 14 matches in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 5 games in which he suffered the first goal. In the last 9 home matches for all competitions there are 3 periods that stand out: they scored 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (16’-30 ‘) and 4 of their 11 goals between (31′-45′); He suffered 3 of his 8 goals between the minutes (61’-75 ‘).
The Burnley makes its second consecutive exhibition outside the home for the English championship, having the opportunity to win his third consecutive victory as a visitor in the competition, thus compensating the stumble he gave in the last game in their domains. On the last day, he did not have a great performance against Bournemouth, but he knew how to take advantage of the few goal opportunities he had, thus leaving with three points further away from his fans. As it became evident in that confrontation, the defensive system has been one of the great responsible for the good campaign of the team, since it has not suffered goals in six games and continues among the four best of the competition. One of the weaknesses of the club is the lack of quality in the change of passes, which hinders the possession of the ball and makes it impossible to create a good volume of scoring opportunities. It is very likely that the coach keeps the team in a 4-4-1-1, with Brady in the offensive sector.
