Need for misery would be a fitting slogan for the match between Leicester and Brighton. Both contracting parties have been stuck for weeks in an unpredictable form low. Leicester could not win a single game in 2019 yet. Brighton’s last victory in the Premier League also dates from 2018 (1-0 against Everton on 29.12.2018). At least the quarter-finals of the FA Cup were achieved, albeit with moderate performances against mediocre opponents. Unlike Brighton, Leicester left both cup competitions early on. In the League Cup quarter-final against the B-Elf of Manchester City was over, in the FA Cup paid the “power saving” against fourth division Newport County from not enough.
Football Betting Tips Leicester vs Brighton
That was also the beginning of the end in the Premier League for the Foxes. The negative strudel took its course and for seven games without a win (six defeats) coach Claude Puel had to take his hat off. Whether this decision was right, we will experience on Tuesday night at 20:45 clock in King Power Stadium. A surprise would be between Leicester and Brighton, according to the odds of bookmakers, however, a success of the Seagulls. Full of suspense is expected, whether the “coaching effect” shows its effect or whether Brighton takes the momentum gained from the FA Cup.
Leicester – Statistics & Current Form
In a brief message, the club’s management stated that Claude Pueal and his coaching team were dismissed. The club responded to the extremely poor sporting development of recent weeks. On Saturday, the Foxes had lost in their own stadium with 1: 4 against Crystal Palace. It was the fifth defeat of the last six games and already the fourth home defeat in series. With Puel leaves the third coach in the last 23 months prematurely in office.
There is much to tell about the club, its development and individual players. Fact seems to be that Claude Puel was probably already often on the brink of expulsion and probably no longer would be coach of the Foxes, had it not been for the tragic helicopter accident of club boss Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. It is also a fact that many players and experts positioned themselves internally and externally against the coach. Kasper Schmeichel and striker Jamie Vardy are probably the most prominent representatives. From a sporting point of view, of course, a look at the statistics is sufficient. The Foxes have been without victory for six Premier League games. No game was won, a draw could be retracted against Liverpool FC, five times lost the troupe of Claude Puel. For a team that has such a high caliber and at the same time young squad (James Maddison, Demarai Gray, Harry Maguire), it’s actually a mystery how it got that far. Of course, with opponents including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Liverpool FC no easy opponents on the slip. Rather, it was the way it was lost. Many viewers called the football under Puel even as “destructive”. Empty spectator ranks were the result.
Expected lineup of Leicester:
Flatterer – Pereira, Evans, Maguire, Fox – Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddidon – Ghezzal, Vardy, Barnes
Last Games by Leicester:
- 23.02.2019 – Leicester City vs. Crystal Palace 1: 4 (Premier League)

- 03.02.2019 – Leicester City vs. Manchester United 0: 1 (Premier League)
- 30.01.2019 – Liverpool Vs. Leicester City 1: 1 (Premier League)
- 19.01.2019 – Wolverhampton Vs. Leicester City 4: 3 (Premier League)
Brighton – Statistics & Current Form
The Seagulls of head coach Chris Hughton are clearly in free fall. None of the last six Premier League games has Brighton win. Overall, there were only two to cheer in 2019. The lead on the saving shore melts on and on. The deciding factor for these statistics is without a doubt the weak outlook with only two wins in 13 games. A total of nine defeats had to cope with the Seagulls in the distance. But not only the missing points in the distance, the quality per se is at Brighton currently not really Erstligatauglich. With a score of just 10.1 shots on average per game, Brighton is the second worst value in the category. But not only that. Defensive, the Hughton-Elf with 15.1 enemy shots on the third worst defensive. The number of goals, which were created by themselves, are with only nine hits the second worst value of the Premier League. So there is not much on what you could build as a follower of the Seagulls. Given these statistics, Leicester and Brighton are predicting their home win.
With the betting odds currently offered, one might think that despite these bad values from Brighton, there is no value for a tip on Leicester. After all, the odds for winning the home team is under 2.00. For an opponent like Leicester, who have not won a game in weeks, the question arises whether this quota distribution is justified. But a look at the encounters in the recent past does not bode well. Against a potential relegated was lost 3-1 (Burnley), the Cup wins were more than poor and were held only against second division. Against the bottom of the table Fulham a 2-0 lead from the hand was given (2-4). It seems that not only quality, but also morality is lacking. If one combines these two factors, despite the negative run of the hosts at Leicester vs Brighton a tip to be the 1 the right choice.
Expected formation of Brighton:
Ryan – Duffy, Dunk, Bong – Big, Stephens, Pröpper – March, Murray, Locadia
Last Games from Brighton:
- 16.02.2019 – Brighton & Hove Albion Vs. Derby County 2: 1 (FA Cup)
- 09.02.2019 – Brighton & Hove Albion Vs. Burnley 1: 3 (Premier League)
- 06.02.2019 – West Bromwich Albion Vs. Brighton & Hove Albion 1: 3 (FA Cup)
- 02.02.2019 – Brighton & Hove Albion Vs. Watford 0: 0 (Premier League)
- 29.01.2019 – Fulham vs. Brighton & Hove Albion 4: 2 (Premier League)
Leicester vs Brighton Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
The direct comparison between Leicester and Brighton is very balanced. Of the last ten games Leicester City could win four. Brighton won three times, as many games ended in a draw. Due to the various league affiliations (from League 1 to Premier League is everything) falls in Leicester against Brighton a prediction in this regard hard. It is striking, however, that eight of the last ten duels ended with under 2.5 goals.
Leicester vs Brighton Our Betting Tips Explained
Both teams are in the middle of a huge depression. We expect an exciting duel on Tuesday evening. The hosts have to prove that Claude Puel’s departure really means a step forward. The guests must be careful not to get further into the descent strudel. None of the statistics and balance sheets speak for any of the teams, but in our eyes the terrifying offensive and defensive scores dominate, so in the match between Leicester and Brighton the tip for home win seems the right decision.
Key Facts – Leicester vs Brighton Tips
Both teams are in a form low.
The “coaching effect” could be the tip of the scales in the direction of the hosts.
In almost all offensive and defensive statistics, Brighton poses with the worst scores.
Both teams have had little success since the start of the football year 2019. But on the one hand Leicester had to play the stronger opponents and the negative results were also a bit too high. Also the “coaching effect” could play a role, precisely because it made the appearance, the own elf played partly, albeit subconsciously, against the trainer. Between Leicester and Brighton, the tip on the home win therefore has a positive expectation.
