Leicester v Brighton Prediction - Preview

Leicester City F.C.

Leicester City booked their ticket to the round of 16 with an emphatic 2-0 victory over Milwall at The Den. After a scoreless first half, Ademola Lookman opened the scoring on 50 minutes, and Kelechi Iheanacho added a goal 28 minutes later. The Foxes most recent matchup saw them edge Brentford 2-1. Youri Tielemans was first to score with a 14th minute netter, which Mathias Jørgensen equalised 15 minutes into the second half. However, at the 74th-minute mark, James Maddison scored the deciding goal for Leicester.  Manager Brendan Rodgers hopes to keep his side’s momentum going as they host the Seagulls in an important match for the club.

Brighton & Hove Albion F.C.

Brighton & Hove Albion marched into the round of 16 by putting away Swansea City 2-0 in the third round at Falmer Stadium. Aaron Connolly’s 5-minute brace in the first half gave the Seagulls the win. However, in their most recent outing, they fell 1-4 to Man City in the EPL. The Citizens were way ahead by three goals when Alexis Mac Allister converted his 81st minute penalty kick, and Riyad Mahrez added onto the lead in stoppage time. Manager Graham Potter nevertheless has praised his side’s fortitude against the reigning Premier League and Carabao Cup champions. They are hoping to improve their performance when they visit Leicester en route to the EFL Cup.

Leicester v Brighton Prediction - Final Thoughts

Leicester’s home advantage will bode well for them in a competition that can be at times surprising. Brighton’s 4th place position in the EPL table means that they can cause a bit of a problem for the hosts. However, the Foxes lineup also is more battle-hardened than the Seagulls, and this will carry them to victory and further into the quarter-final round. Let’s look at the prediction.
