Watford vs Leicester City Prediction (14-03-2020)
The Premier League weekend begins with a game that will have implications at both ends of the table. Leicester City took another big step closer to their Champions League dream with a convincing win last Monday, a result which they will hope has put an end to a poor run of performances.
Meanwhile, this weekend’s hosts Watford were on cloud nine after their miraculous performance against Liverpool a fortnight ago but where brought back down to earth with a bump thanks to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.
Such inconsistencies are what may cause a Watford side that possesses plenty of quality to fall through the relegation trapdoor. Games such as this one against one of the league’s better team’s may actually be what is needed to rally Troy Deeney and co to another memorable performance and another crucial three points.
Leicester did Watford a favour last minute in their 4-0 thumping of Aston Villa. Jamie Vardy ended his barren run with a double off the bench to score his first goals of the calendar year. The striker is a player that scores in patches and Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that this kickstarts another run of hot form for his talisman.
At this stage of the season, these competitive fixtures often throw up unexpected results, meaning that placing a punt on the result is a bold strategy. Both teams to score is a sensible option.
If you fancy being a bit more adventurous, having a punt of both English talisman Deeney and Vardy to score in this one could easily pay off.
