Tottenham are at it again. On the previous day, the team suffered a 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Brighton. A draw against Brentford (0-0) followed. As a result, Antonio Conte’s side slipped down to fifth place, allowing Arsenal to move up into the Champions League zone. Spurs have 58 points on their books. The gap from the Champions League zone is 2 points. At the same time, 6th-placed Manchester United are 4 points behind.
The Londoners have a pretty good record at home: 10 wins, 1 World result and 5 defeats. 31 goals scored, with 18 conceded. Before losing to Brighton in their last game at home, TTX had a streak of 3 straight wins. Most interestingly, in those 3 games, the team scored 13 goals and conceded just 1.
Leicester on the back of their match against Roma in the Conference League. I don’t rule out Rodgers resorting to rotating the squad. After all, the Foxes haven’t struggled for anything serious in the AFL for a long time. On the other hand, there is an opportunity to win a trophy on the European stage. It is likely that their strongest performers will be rested before the return leg against Rome.
In the English league table, the Foxes are only 10th. After 32 rounds, they have 42 points on their books. Yes, the team have two more games in reserve, but even they won’t change anything in a global sense for Vardy and Co.
It’s a good time to look back at how the team is performing away (in the APL). The results are as mediocre as possible: 3 wins, 5 draws and 8 “looses”. 21 goals scored and 31 conceded.

Forecast and bet for the match Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City. Outcome with cf. 1,74
I expect to see a win for the home team. Tottenham has a stronger squad. In addition, Conte’s charges will play on home soil, where they often play really good matches this season. And most importantly, Spurs are fresher. They have spent the whole week preparing for this meeting. On the other hand, Leicester played their difficult Conference League semi-final against Roma on April 28.
My prediction. Hardly expect Tottenham to win this weekend, but I think that with a -1 handicap the Londoners can well win.
