West Brom vs. Leicester City Match Analysis and Prediction

West Brom makes a comeback to the English top-flight since 2018 this weekend as they play host to side Leicester City. The match schedules at Hawthorns on Sunday with kickoff at 4 pm.

Newly promoted Baggies tops the list of favorites to be relegated into the Championship this season. With likes of Fulham and Leeds starting with losses on an opening day, it remains an uphill task to change the tides.

One thing that will be evident for the Baggies as they anticipate for the Premier League’s first opening match is the home ground. It will be a good feel factor for the side who enjoyed a successful season in the Championship.

Brendan Rodgers will have to shake off a disappointing 2019-2020 campaign that saw the side lose Champions League football. It was evident an empty stadium was the kryptonite for the side with an unimpressive run in form post-lockdown.

Leicester managed to win only six games since the lockdown. The coffin’s final nail sealed on the last day of the campaign with a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United. The Foxes have not won four of their previous opening fixtures in the Premier League. Replicating the am form from the previous campaign that saw the side start with an unbeaten streak will be hard for Rodgers.
