Leicester vs Arsenal Prediction & Betting tips
On Wednesday at 20:45 Arsene Wenger denies his penultimate game as coach of Arsenal London. Since 1996, he has been coaching England’s first division club Arsenal, with whom he has led triumphs in the championship and in various English cup competitions on several occasions, and even in the 2006 UEFA Champions League final. Arsene Wenger is the most successful and since 2009 the longest-running coach in the history of Arsenal London. At the end of April, Wenger announced that he would retire at the end of the season after 22 successful years as an Arsenal coach. In recent months, but also voices were loud, which demanded the resignation Wengers. Too bad were the results of recent years or in other words, the demands of the traditional club from London were too high.
Both Arsenal and Leicester are not much anymore. You want to say goodbye to the season. Arsenal wants to bring Wenger a good conclusion and Leicester wants to sweeten his fans at home the last miserable series a little. No opponent is as welcome to the Arsene Wenger team as Leicester City. 22 times in a row you are unbeaten against the Foxes. No other team has the Gunners to show a better record. In 1994 City scored the last victory against Arsenal London. 15 wins since Arsenal London, while Leicester City had to settle for only seven draws.
Leicester City is currently ranked 9th in the table. In the season 2017/2018, they have so far brought in eleven victories, played eleven draws and lost 14 times, which adds up to a score of 44. In the home table they drove the devilish 6 6 6. Six home wins, six draws and six defeats. At home you lost two of the last three games. Once against West Ham and once against Newcastle. They are in tenth place and 15th place. It is hard to imagine breaking the negative run against Arsenal in London when losing to mid-range teams at home. Leicester is the 13th best home team in the Premier League with 22 goals scored and 21 goals conceded. From the last five games in total, they just scored one point with a goal balance of 2:11. If you take a closer look at the last games, you will notice that the defeat series is justified.
This consideration is always of great importance in betting. Often a lot depends on so-called gaming luck in football. One more thing – and this is probably even more important – is to look at the games in relation to the opponent’s strength. Played e.g. against a much better team and loses 0: 1, this would be an indication of a good performance, rather than dismissing it as a pure defeat. But they lost against West Ham with 0: 2. Although the goals for West Ham were rather happy, Leicester hardly took offense despite their high possession. Before that, they lost away to Crystal Palace 0: 5. In my opinion, this game needs no closer consideration. Against Southampton at home, they revealed a number of deficiencies in defense and could only keep zero thanks to the inability of Southampton. Against a better offensive, such as against Arsenal’s London, it should look a bit harder. The 0-0 against the table-17. does not exactly speak for the offensive strength of Leicester.
Arsenal London recovered well after a bitter break in the Europa League and defeated Burnley 5-0. Before that, you lost twice in a row. But here too one should take a closer look at the opponents. Once they lost to Atletico Madrid 1-0 and before it with 1: 2 against Manchester United. Presumably, they were already a bit reserved for the Europa League second leg. It should also be noted that a defeat against Manchester United, the table second, may well happen. However, it is noticeable that Arsenal all lost the last five away games in the Premier League. This made sure that you crashed in the away table to 15th place. But even here it is worth taking a look into the detail.
Against Atletico you were actually the worse team and lost deserved 0: 1. Before that one lost as well. It was 1: 2 at the end against Manchester United. It was then Manchester’s individual class that decided the game. An individual class that Leicester will not be able to do, especially in the offensive. And although Arsenal lost, they were able to earn themselves a few handsome chances themselves. Against Newcastle lost as well with 1: 2. But here, too, the result distorts the gameplay a bit. Arsenal went 1-0 in the lead, clearly had more possession and more shots on goal and lost only because of two easily avoidable defensive errors. If Leicester remains offensive as usual and defensively allows too much and on the other hand, Arsenal ties in on the good performance against Burnley and fully exploits his strengths, an away win should be quite realistic.
