Leicester City vs Huddersfield Town | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The Foxes had a meltdown against Bournemouth, and they want to forget that ugly episode as fast as they can. The opportunity stands right in front of them, as one of the weakest teams in the league arrives at the Kings Power stadium. Huddersfield has difficulties in finding the proper game plan, which could lead them to the first victory of the season.
Leicester lost 4:2 on the road against the Cherries, and what is even more important, lost Wes Morgan for this match. It is of the utmost importance for them to collect three points against one of the relegation contenders. Huddersfield started the season pretty badly, and we can’t see that they are going to get out of it in the near future. It is why the hosts are the favorites in this one.
Claude Puel entered the period of the partial reconstruction of his team with a clear vision of that process. The French manager repeated in several interviews that his team will have “ups and downs” and that he expects from the fans to understand that. One of those “downs” was seen last week, but from time to time, those things happen. Other two losses came against Liverpool and Man Utd, which could be understood. But what is important for the experienced manager, is that his team won those matches they were supposed to, against Wolves and Southampton. Plus they reached the second stage of the EFL after demolishing Fleetwood United. Also, for all the fans of the statistical data, seven of previous nine fixtures they participated in ended with both teams to score.
David Wagner and his boys didn’t win for seven straight matches. It is something which might indicate that the Terriers are in a desperate situation. If we count in the EFL Cup, in which they got eliminated by Stoke City, 2:0, this squad netted only twice since their first competitive clash of the season. On the other side, they allowed 13 goals. Basically, all the lines are not working correctly, and there is a huge possibility to see the young American coach departed, pretty soon. The offense is a disaster because they couldn’t score in four different fixtures from the total number of six, which the Terriers play up until now.

Leicester City vs Huddersfield Town | Top Betting Tip: Leicester (2-0)
Anything else than Leicester’s win would be a huge shock here. However, despite this team being without their captain, they are much better than the visitors, who are slowly getting broken into the pieces. Kings Power stadium is one more factor why to bet on the hosts because this stadium is a stronghold of the Foxes for several years back. We also have two more propositions to you. The first one is that Leicester wins with clean sheets. Huddersfield’s helplessness in attack is apparent, and we should profit from it. The other suggestion revolves around Foxes’ comfortable win, where we believe that it would be with at least two goals margin. Our final prediction Leicester City – Huddersfield Town 2:0.
