On Friday, November 3, Leicester City will host Leeds United in what promises to be the most exciting game of matchday 15 in the EFL Championship. The kick-off is scheduled for 8 pm local time.

The two teams dropped down from the Premier League over the summer and are fighting for immediate promotion. The Foxes are the league leaders with 39 points after 14 games while Leeds are in third with 25 points. So, besides the quality of both teams, the upcoming clash will be important for the title race in the 2023/24 EFL Championship.

Going into our Leicester City vs Leeds United tips, we will cover the two teams recent forms and their head-to-head matches from last term.

Over 2.5 goals

To kick start our Leicester City vs Leeds United tips, we expect a high-scoring game at King Power Stadium on Friday. The reasons for it are rather simple – the Foxes and the Whites are two of the most attacking sides in the 2023/24 EFL Championship, with 29 and 24 goals scored respectively. 

Additionally, there were at least three goals in three of Leicester’s latest five EFL Championship games. The same is true for Leeds United, whose most recent outing was the 4-1 home win over Huddersfield Town.

In their head-to-head Premier League matches from last season, there were at most two goals between Leicester and Leeds. However, since they can give themselves more margin for error in the second-tier, we expect at least three goals this time around. Bet365 offers 1.66 odds on over 2.5 goals.

Leicester City win

Credit where credit is due, Daniel Farke’s Leeds United have been a solid team in the 2023/24 campaign as the new manager has found a reasonable balance between positive results and good football. 

However, Leicester City have been superior in every aspect of the game, and we expect Enzo Maresca’s team to come out victorious at King Power Stadium. The odds on Leicester City winning the match stand at 2.00 on Bet365.

So far, the Foxes have won 13 out of their 14 league matches in the 2023/24 EFL Campaign. Their only loss to date was the 1-0 upset at the hands of Hull City back in September, but that scoreline is not entirely reflective of what happened on the pitch. With a better squad and on a better run of form, the home side should get the win against Leeds United.

Both teams to score? Yes

Indeed, Leicester City are not on top of the league table by chance – the Foxes boast the best goal difference in the 2023/24 EFL Championship with 29 goals scored (joint-best) and eight goals conceded (best). 

And while it goes without saying that Leicester City will score past Leeds United – whose defensive record stands at 15 conceded goals – we believe that visitors will end up on the scoreline too. 

The Whites have a good offence with 24 goals scored, and Crysencio Summerville has been on fire recently, with six goals and four assists to date. The Foxes have kept just six clean sheets so far, conceding to bottom-dwelling QPR and Rotherham United on respective days.

Bet365 offers 1.57 odds on both teams scoring. And if you believe that Leicester City will win the match despite nonetheless, the odds on it stand at 3.60.
