Brighton & Hove Albion vs Leicester City
LEI VS BHA MATCH PREVIEW:
Brighton & Hove Albion host FC Leicester City in a Premier League match at Amex Stadium, Today at 07:30 PM IST.
Both teams suffered terrible results in their respective FA Cup outings a fortnight ago. Brighton were thumped 2-0 at Old Trafford by Manchester United while Leicester lost 1-2 at home against Chelsea.
On that note, this match carries an added significance for both the teams as both managers would be aiming to build a momentum for the rest of the campaign.
Chris Hughton has done wonders with Brighton this season. Considering the amount they spent in the transfer market on the recruits, they were amongst the favorites to go down to the Championship. But no, it doesn’t look like they would be playing in the 2nd tier next season. Not after that 7 games unbeaten run where they won five matches, that included a 2-1 win over Arsenal.
Though the Albion are far from safety as they are just six points away from the dreaded zone, the fact that they are at a respectable 12th position in the table heading into this match, speaks for itself.
Leicester City, on the other hand, have won 10, drew 10 and lost 10 out of 30 matches they played in the League so far. Sitting at 8th in the table, the Foxes can still qualify for Europe as Arsenal, who are 6th with 48 points, are only 8 points adrift. Leicester manager Claude Puel has been vocal about his team’s chances to qualify for Europa League and revealed that his team would leave no stone unturned in their quest to play continental football next season.

LEI VS BHA FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Brighton & Hove Albion are at home in this match and considering they are still in danger of falling into the relegation zone, the home team could be more aggressive in the match.
However, the visitors have Europa League to aim for and also, Leicester have more technically gifted players in the ranks. But so had Arsenal who were beaten 2-1 at Amex Stadium by Brighton.
The match is too close to call, and we are going for Leicester City’s win.
