West Bromwich v Leicester: can the Foxes win?

West Bromwich

13/09/2020, at 13:00 GMT
England. Premier League

Odds: 1.87


West Brom's unbeaten streak is equal to four official games. West Brom have won only three of their previous nine official home matches. Leicester have three wins in the last ten league games. The Foxes' losing streak in the Premier League reached eight matches. In four of Leicester's last five away matches in the Premier League, they have played the "both to score" bet. In face-to-face meetings between Leicester and West Brom no one has an advantage. But an interesting picture is observed: the home team cannot win nine matches in a row! The last time teams met was in the 2017/2018 season. At the King Power Stadium Leicester played with the VBA (1:1) and defeated the Blackbirds on the road (4:1). In seven of these nine meetings the bet "both will score" was played.

West Bromwich

West Brom was briefly in the Championship. Just two years later the blackbirds, led by Slaven Bilic, returned to the Premier League. Unlike Fulham, who spent almost no money, West Brom decided to strengthen their team with transfers. Grady Diangana was bought from West Ham for € 13.5 million, Sporting left winger Matheus Perreira was acquired for € 9.1 million. WBA paid Wigan for center-back Cedric Cyprus € 9.1 million and exactly the same amount of "blackbirds" laid out for the reserve goalkeeper of "Brighton" David Button. Lured Slaven Bilic and Sheffield left winger Callum Robinson. The amount of compensation was not disclosed.

All players are available for this WBA match. However, the participation of Conor Townsend and Kenneth Zohore is questionable.

In preparation for the new season, the WBA played only one match. The Blackbirds parted ways with Brighton (0:0).

For Leicester, the start of the season can also answer many questions. On the one hand, the "foxes" had an amazing start to the last championship and got at least into the Europa League. However, Brendan Rogers' team passed the second half of the season as a typical middle peasant. If Leicester continues to play like this, the team will find themselves floundering in the middle of the standings.

Leicester was not active in the transfer market, selling and buying one player each for 50.20 million euros. The Foxes released Ben Chilwell to Chelsea and for 24 million they bought a theoretical replacement for the Englishman in the person of Timothy Castagne from Atalanta. True, these players play on different flanks.

Three defenders are unavailable to Leicester for the upcoming match: Ricardo Pereira, Johnny Evans and Philip Benkovich. The participation of Christian Fuchs and Wes Morgan is also questionable. Thus, Brendan Rogers can count only on four nominal defenders to start the season.

In friendly matches before the start of the championship, the "foxes" did not play very confidently. Leicester beat Birmingham (2:0), but lost peace with Blackburn (1:1) and Sheffield Wednesday (0:0).


The clubs' prospects for the upcoming championship are rather vague. A face-to-face match could provide answers to at least some questions about this. Leicester played terribly away and in the end of the championship the Foxes could not beat even the outsiders. Although Brendan Rogers' team was also in desperate need of points. Against this background, West Brom looks more motivated, as this is a new challenge for the club. Accordingly, here you can take the risk of betting on the owners' loss.

Our prediction is West Bromwich will not lose for 1.87 at BC 1xBet
