Leicester City vs Swansea City Preview 

After relegation from the Premier League, Leicester's objectives for the season were unambiguous - to return within the next season. So far, the Enzo Maresca team is coping with this perfectly - 1st place and a 7-point gap from the second-placed Ipswich. Swansea, after relegation from the Premier League in 2018, remained stuck in the second division, drifting in the middle of the table in this season as well. The Swans may not worry about relegation to the third division yet, but they also do not have to dream of getting into the championship playoffs. In such conditions, the teams approach a face-to-face meeting.

Leicester City Preview

As it was said, the Maresca team is the main contender for victory in the Championship. Despite the departure of the main part of the leaders after the relegation from the Premier League (Yuri Tielemans, James Madison), the current squad of the Foxes, led by the ageless Jamie Vardy, is enough not to experience difficulties in the second division. Despite the setbacks in the last two matches - a draw with Ipswich and a defeat by Coventry, Leicester looked decent and are unlikely to bring a winless streak to three matches in a row.

Swansea City Preview

Swansea is a classic middleweight of any championship - when it can, bite the leaders, when it is necessary, to compete with neighbours on the table and beat the outsider. The main task of the Luke Williams team is not to fall into the relegation zone, which the Swans successfully cope with, gaining points whenever possible. In the first round, Swansea lost 3-1 without much chances and approaches the championship leader for the second match without much hope, which is reflected by Leicester City vs. Swansea City odds on their success.

Betting Tips for Leicester City vs Swansea City 

Leicester City to Score in Both Halves

Leicester look great in home matches, scoring an average of 2 goals per game (28 goals in 14 matches) and given the recent problems of the team, the motivation of the foxes will be enough to please their fans with a bright game. The team has no problems attacking, whereas Swansea's defence does not look impenetrable. Our Leicester City vs Swansea City prediction is that the hosts will take the game into their own hands from the first minutes and score goals in both halves. William Hill offers odds of 2.00 for such an outcome.

Handicap Leicester City (-1.5)

There is too much difference in class between the teams at this point in the season. It is too early for Leicester to rest on their laurels and think about the upcoming playoffs, even despite the gap from the pursuers. The head coach of the foxes understands this, so he is unlikely to let the players relax. A confident 3-1 victory was won in the first round, so it is quite possible to expect something similar in this match. William Hill evaluates this outcome with odds of 1.95

Swansea City Total Over 0.5 Goals

Despite the obvious advantage of the home team, Swansea will inevitably have moments that the team will try to realise. The Swans are not so hopeless in away matches, having scored 24 in 14 games, and Leicester, after a string of point losses, is unlikely to play flawlessly in defence. In addition, in all 4 games in 2024, the Foxes consistently conceded at least one goal. For this type, Leicester City vs Swansea City tip William Hill offers odds of 1.74.
