Leicester City vs. Aston Villa Prediction and Match Analysis

With the gap between Leicester and second-placed Manchester City widening, Brendan Rodgers will be looking to tighten the leash as they host Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium. The match schedules for 9th March with kickoff at 23:00 GMT.

Brendan Rodgers is finding it hard to maintain a perfect lead to end his Premier League campaign. Leicester City has only one win in their last five matches. A late strike by Jamals was enough to secure a win for Norwich City. The defeat put the hopes for Champions League football for the Foxes in jeopardy.

Leicester City is currently third in the Premier League with 50 points. A previous loss to the Citizens extended their lead, with the Foxes seven points clear of second-placed side. However, Rodgers has much to worry especially with the race for the top four intensifies.

Despite a loss of the Carabao Cup by Aston Villa to Manchester City, the fight in the game was clear to the fans. A halftime strike by Samatta was not enough to seal a win despite an impressive performance.

Will Brendan Rodgers discover winning ways with a win at the King Power Stadium, or will Dean Smith add more troubles for the Foxes?
