“The goal is to end the season as well as possible. Everyone wants to go to Europe, “said Leicester coach Brendan Rodgers following Saturday’s 4-1 away win at relegated Huddersfield. Leicester City (seventh, 47 points) scores a four-match battle with Wolverhampton, Everton and Watford for seventh place in the remainder of the season. This could possibly entitle to participate in the Europa League qualification in the summer. This would be made possible by a victory for Manchester City in the FA Cup. For many Premier League teams, such an early start (July) is a thorn in the side, but Rodgers knows this situation from his past seasons at Celtic only too well. Due to the current form, Leicester has become one of the favorites for the title “Best often he Rest” behind the top six teams in recent weeks. While Watford has the FA Cup final in mind, the Wolves are mourning the missed final chance and Everton is still a lucky bag.
Today’s Betting Prediction Leicester vs Newcastle
Opponents Newcastle United (15th place, 35 points) meanwhile have the league as good as in the bag. Seven points is the lead, also has Newcastle over Cardiff the much better goal difference. On Friday night, the Magpies are outsiders, this is the odds bookmakers have between Leicester and Newcastle. Not only is Newcastle extremely faded out, but coach Rafa Benitez’s boys have lost most of their Premier League football matches (six bankruptcies). Leisester was again most often in action on Friday in the Premier League without scoring a victory (0-2-4). The chance to break this series is outstanding. In particular, top striker Jamie Vardy plays a large part in the recent successes of the Foxes. The “Vardy-Party” was really fun again, so between Leicester and Newcastle our prediction is at least one hit from the Foxes-Talisman.
Leicester – Statistics & Current Form
After just five games under former Celtic coach Brendan Rodgers, it’s already apparent that the players have developed an understanding of the football still to be implemented by the Northern Irish at the Foxes. The Foxes have a number of young and hopeful players such as Ben Chilwell, Demarai Gray, Harvey Barnes or James Maddison. So far, Rodgers has been making his players better at each of his stations. That is why he is currently eating out of the hands of Premier League champions Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel and captain Wes Morgan. In the domestic King Power Stadium, the Foxes won the last three games and as many games as in the twelve matches before (3-2-7). Last time there were four home wins in series in May 2017 (then five). In April 2017, the Foxes won for the last time ever five Premier League games in series. Last Leicester denied four consecutive matches victorious. So it is hardly surprising that Leicester against Newcastle in terms of odds of all betting sites is the first contender for another threesome.
The Foxes have already draw the 47 points of the entire 2017/18 season after 33 league games. Striker star Jamie Vardy has scored six goals in five league games under Rodgers, earning 50 percent of all Leicester goals under the new coach. Overall, the 32-year-old hit 15 times this season. Against Newcastle United, Vardy was directly involved in their most recent five Premier League games at four goals (three goals, one assist), so Leicester vs. Newcastle have a good chance of winning “Vardy Meets Anyway”, especially as the odds for a Vardy Hits at 2.20 are very appealing at his recently revealed goal hunger. Another young player who is currently causing a sensation is Monaco loan Youri Tielemans, who was responsible for either a goal or a goal in five of his last six league games (two goals, three assists). Hard to imagine that Leicester will not pull the option for the Belgian. Harry Maguire is likely to return to the starting eleven. Daniel Amartey and Marc Albrighton are injured.

Newcastle – Statistics & Current Form
The presentation of the Magpies 14 days ago at Arsenal was terribly bloodless. In the first 45 minutes, Newcastle made just one goal from striker Salomón Rondón. In general, it is usually dangerous in the Magpies, if the beefy Venezuelan is involved. Nine Premier League goals will go to the West Bromwich loan this season (five assists). In London against Arsenal he went out, like his team, empty. Thus, the Magpies continue to wait for the one victory, which would probably definitively seal the league. It is unlikely that Newcastle celebrates this success abroad, after all, the Magpies have been away for eight Premier League games (0-3-5) and only three out of 24 points in that period. Correspondingly, while Leicester vs. Newcastle odds on the Magpies are tempting, the likelihood that such a tip will be rewarded, but not realistic. Should Benitez make it into the league for the second consecutive year, it would be an extraordinary achievement again. Whether the Spaniard will stay another year in Newcastle, is currently in the stars.
The relationship with club boss Mike Ashley is still tense. In addition, it is not clear whether Ashley will sell the club or not. Recently, it looked more like a whereabouts from Ashley. In addition, Benitez wants more money for signings, otherwise threatens next season again the fight for survival. This season, the Magpies spent £ 40m, including record shopping Miguel Almiron for £ 16m in January. In comparison, Fulham invested £ 100 million and went down. However, Benitez must also be accused of not always using money wisely. Muto, Kennedy, Ki or Fernández are all supplements at best. If there is little money, it would make more sense to get one or two real reinforcements and not fill the bank or tribune. Recently Newcastle lost the last two Premier League games and scored no goal. Last three failures in series without own hits, there were in January 2016. Florian Lejeune and Sean Longstaff missing injured.
