What Trueform says for Leicester vs Cardiff
Leicester entertain Cardiff full of confidence following back-to-back Premier League victories over Chelsea and Manchester City.
The Foxes have already beaten the Bluebirds in Wales this season and are hard to oppose in the reverse fixture at King Power Stadium on Saturday.
With the visitors struggling to score on the road, 29/20 for a home win to nil is our first Leicester vs Cardiff prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Marc Albrighton quickly cancelled out Bernardo Silva’s opener for Manchester City and Ricardo Pereira’s 81st-minute strike then proved to be the winner for Leicester.
Claude Puel’s team climbed up to seventh in the table and the head coach declared: “I must congratulate my players.
“It was difficult to have the ball against this team and we put in place a good organisation and good work.
“We finished the first half with a lot of chances and I was a little afraid, but we managed to stay in the game and score again at the right moment.”
Jamie Vardy had previously proven the match-winner in a 1-0 triumph at Chelsea and has broken the deadlock in three top-flight fixtures this term.
This is a good chance to add to that tally and 3/1 for the England international to open the scoring stands out from the Leicester vs Cardiff odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Pereira, Maguire, Maddison, Albrighton, Mendy, Ndidi, Choudhury, Vardy.
A Look At Cardiff City’s Betting Odds
Cardiff picked up their second away point of the season when drawing 0-0 at Crystal Palace, but had to ride their luck at Selhurst Park.
Palace had 31 attempts on goal, with Andros Townsend hitting the crossbar from a fine chance in only the second minute.
Neil Warnock insisted it was team spirit that inspired his side’s resilience under such intense pressure.
“Our dressing room is our strength,” he said. “We play a lot more than what people give us credit for and we’ve got some steel about us.”
However, Leicester have more clinical finishers than the Eagles and are better equipped to make sustained pressure count.
Let’s add 13/2 for the Foxes to prevail 2-0 to our Leicester vs Cardiff betting tips.
Last Cardiff line-up: Etheridge, Peltier, Bennett, Morrison, Ecuele Manga, Bamba, Ralls, Reid, Camarasa, Harris, Hoilett.
LEICESTER 2-1 Man City – Marc Albrighton, Ricardo Pereira
Crystal Palace 0-0 CARDIFF
Head-to-head: Cardiff 0-1 Leicester
