Leicester City’s last match was against Gillingham on Saturday and it finished in a slender 0:1 win away from home. It might sound strange but playing at home has proved to be rather a disadvantage in Leicester City’s recent 10 meetings, as the visiting squads won on eight occasions and the hosts achieved just two triumphs for the period. During its previous ten clashes, the side did not register any draws. Three of their most recent five encounters produced more than 2.5 goals with one seeing both of the squads netting goals. Within this time frame the Foxes were successful in keeping two clean sheets and failed to score in two. The total goals scored across the team’s last five outings amounted to 11.
