Aston Villa – Leicester City
Aston Villa hosts Leicester City at the Villa Park in Birmingham in a match from the 25th round of the Premier League. Let’s see what we can tell you about this game in the coming few paragraphs.
At this moment Aston Villa can be happy with their performance in the league. The club find itself at 8th place in the standings and for Villa it’s a huge success to be in the Top 10. Let us remind you that last season they were fighting to avoid relegation.
In the previous round of the league Aston Villa won a point during the visit to Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express. The game ended with a 0-0 draw which allowed Dean Smith’s boys to get home with a positive result. Villa have lost just one of their four games in the league – the one against West Ham United at the Villa Park.
Leicester City approach this visit to Birmingham from third place in the standings. The Foxes remain a solid contender for a place in Top 4 and a qualification for the Champions League. They are on the right course and the manager Brendan Rodgers is doing some terrific job so far.
During the week Leicester City had a game in Europa League as well. The Foxes went to the Czech Republic to face Slavia Praha and the game ended 0-0. This means that Leicester must do some better job in the second leg in order to progress in the competition.
That’s our preview for the Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Leicester City at the Villa Park in Birmingham. The hosts are doing well so far in the league, but they are facing one of the best teams in the league at the moment. Leicester are favourites, but they need to make a serious push in order to win here.
