Sunderland v Leicester City Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm UK Time, Tuesday 5th March 2024

 

Having lost three Championship games on the bounce, Leicester City still sit in pole position in the division and will look to return to winning ways when they visit the Stadium of Light this evening.

 

Recent poor form

Leicester City pay a visit to the Stadium of Light for the first time in over seven years when they lost 2-1 as defending Premier League champions in December 2016. The Foxes have returned just a single win from their last nine league trips to Wearside and given their recent poor form, the once-unstoppable East Midlands outfit will find the going tough tonight.¬†After suffering just a single defeat in their first thirteen away matches this term and winning ten of these, Enzo Maresca’s men have lost two of their last four games with their most recent coming against struggling Queens Park Rangers at the King Power Stadium last weekend.

 

Miserable tenure

Michael Beale’s miserable tenure at Sunderland was cut short at the end of last month and since stepping into the breach, interim boss Mike Dodds has been unable to turn things around. The Black Cats have lost each of their last four matches and have slumped down to tenth position in the league table as a result. Dodds will be desperate to give the home side something to cheer tonight, however the hosts will be mindful of the fact that they have lost all-but-one of their last five meetings with the Foxes.

 

State of flux

This should in theory be an excellent time to be hosting the league leaders who have been struggling in recent weeks, however the home side are also having their issues and are in a state of flux without a permanent manager in place. Therefore, we envisage Leicester City returning to winning ways here and getting their title bid back on track.

 

Back Leicester City to win and both teams to score at best odds of 3/1
