Leicester will this weekend face-off with Burnley in their matchday 9 of the season. This match will be held at the King Power Stadium on Saturday 19th October 2019. It is scheduled to start at 15:30 GMT.
Leicester City has been doing impressively well this season. At number 4 of the table standings, they hope to extend their stay among the top four this weekend when they take on also relatively on-form Burnley. Brendan Rodger’s men were nearly sharing the spoils with Liverpool in their last premier league action. However, Liverpool outwitted them in the last minutes of the match when they scored a winner from the penalty spot thus denying them the point.
Burnley, on the other hand, did well to beat 10-man Everton 0-1 in their matchday 8 in front of their home fans. At number 7 of the table standings, they also seem to be doing relatively well. However, they are not regarded as good travelers.
The Foxes had a flying start to the season and their spirits are still high. They have been very impressive at their King Power Stadium and considering that the Clarets are not considered good while on the road, hence Brendan Rodger’s men are considered favorites to win the fixture. With this in mind, we, therefore, find there is a big value in betting for the home team.
