Leicester vs Norwich

All eyes will be on King Power Stadium when Leicester City and Norwich City take on each other in the Championship derby on Easter Monday. The Foxes aim to recover from a shocking 1-0 loss to Bristol City and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Canaries. Callum Doyle is back from suspension, while all Thomas Cannon, Ben Nelson, and Kasey McAteer are sidelined with injuries, while there are no suspended players in the home team.

Norwich City, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Plymouth on Friday, with the team remaining in the playoffs berth. Norwich City, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Leicester City’s party at King Power Stadium. All Dimitris Giannoulis, Jon Rowe, and Onel Hernandez should miss out through injuries for the visiting side.

How the bookies view it

Leicester City are odds-on here across the board and you can get some 7/10 with 49Jili.

Norwich City can be backed at 4/1 with Paddy Power and the draw is 3/1 with 49Jili.

Recent head to heads

Leicester City eased to a 2-0 win at Carrow Road in September and in fact the Foxes have won the last three meetings between the clubs.

Norwich haven’t won at Leicester for 13 years.

Players to watch

Jamie Vardy missed Leicester’s FA Cup defeat at Chelsea with a ‘slight injury’ but returned at Ashton Gate and even at the age of 37, he remains a deadly striker and is their top scorer this season with 15 goals in all competitions. He is 8/5 to score anytime with 49Jili.

Josh Sargent has now scored nine goals in his last ten games for Norwich including three in a row and the American-born striker is a value 10/3 to score anytime with 49JILI.

Leicester vs Norwich Head-to-head

Leicester will rely on recent H2H tradition. They go into this on the back of three consecutive victories over the Canaries.

The run involves a 2-0 victory for the Foxes in September last year at Carrow Road.

We saw three or more goals in just two of the previous six head-to-head encounters.

Leicester vs Norwich Prediction

Leicester are in big crisis. They lost four of the previous seven outings across competitions. They desperately need a rebound win. On the other side, Norwich are flying high after back-to-back demolishing wins over Rotherham and Stoke City. However, we still consider the home win as the best betting prediction here for various reasons. Firstly, Leicester own a fabulous home record. They won 13 of 18 league fixtures at King Power Stadium this season. The Foxes also created a lot of chances in Friday’s clash at Bristol City. They just failed to deliver at Ashton Gate. Moving forward, Norwich City have shown much better performances at home than on the road so far in the season. The Canaries have a negative road record. They won 5, drew 5, and lost 9 of 19 league matches away from home this term. Lastly, Leicester have won each of the previous three head-to-head games with Norwich. You can back the home win pick at the 1.70 odds.

Despite failing to score, Leicester created bountiful chances on Friday afternoon at Ashton Gate. They still own the second-best attacking record in the division with 74 goals scored in 38 matches. The Foxes have also shipped two or more goals in three of the last five outings across competitions. Since each of Norwich City have also been quite efficient up front lately, we have to take the Over 2.5 goals bet at the 1.75 odds.
