  • Key StatKey Stat: Southampton have only won one of the last seven fixtures between these two sides.
  • Expert VerdictExpert Verdict: Southampton are still searching for their first win of the new season, and take on a Leicester team who beat Wolves last time out despite Jamie Vardy’s red card. Vardy’s absence could mean a return for Shinji Okazaki – scorer of two goals in this fixture last season – although, whoever comes in, the Foxes can inflict another defeat on struggling Southampton.

Southampton vs Leicester City Prediction & Betting Tips

Southampton vs Leicester City Head-to-Head Stats

Southampton come out on top in the head-to-head record with 32 wins in 86 games, compared to Leicester’s 26 with 28 draws. Southampton have only won of the last seven, however, and two in eight in total since Leicester’s 2014 Premier League return. Last season, Leicester won 4-1 at St Mary’s as Shinji Okazaki bagged two goals and Andy King and Riyad Mahrez also scored, with Maya Yoshida grabbing the Saints’ consolation. Their most recent fixture was a goalless draw at the King Power in April, however.

SOU FC vs LCFC Betting Tips

Even without their star striker, Leicester arrive at St Mary’s in better shape than their hosts, thanks to their win against Wolves last time out.

The Foxes were unlucky not to get anything from the opening-day trip to Old Trafford and made amends last time out with a 2-0 home win despite finishing with ten men.

James Maddison’s first goal was a big moment – not least because it was a fantastic strike, but because it shows there are goals away from Jamie Vardy in this team.

Southampton, on the other hand, lacked goals in their relegation battle last season and only have the one Danny Ings goal to their name this season.

Ings could be a key acquisition, but he’ll be up against Harry Maguire this weekend – a big ask at the best of times.

If Maguire and Jonny Evans keep Ings quiet, it is hard to see where Southampton’s goals will come from.

And if the Saints can not score – again – it means Leicester can upset the odds and claim victory.

Leicester City vsSouthampton Recommended bets with odds

Southampton might be favourites, but their form makes it hard to back them – both this season so far and last season. They are 13/10 to win with Betway, whereas Leicester are 9/4.

That improves to 4/1 with Ladbrokes if you back Leicester to win to nil, against a side who have lacked goals in recent seasons. You can also bet against both teams to score at 9/10 with Betfair – neither team scored in Southampton’s first home game this season.

In Jamie Vardy’s absence, meanwhile, this is a big game for Kelechi Iheanacho. The Nigerian striker -who impressed in pre-season – is a best price of 5/2 to score at any time with 888sport.

Southampton vs Leicester City Prediction

Southampton lack goals, whereas Leicester proved some of their strength in depth when they beat Wolves last time out. The Saints may have home advantage, but that should not count for much if they can not score.

Correct score prediction: Southampton 0-1 Leicester City
