Leicester City welcomes Birmingham City at the King Power Stadium
Leicester City welcomes Birmingham City at the King Power Stadium in a fixture from the 5th round of the FA Cup. The Foxes are big favourites in this clash, but let’s preview this game in our sure win prediction today.
Leicester City are arguably one of the best teams in England since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers, but right now the club is not in its best shape. The former champions are without a win in their last five games, four of them in the Premier League. They are still on course to qualify for the Champions League, but clearly Rodgers and his boys must find a way to improve their performance.
In the previous round of the FA Cup Leicester City paid a visit to Brentford and went through after a 1-0 win. It was difficult, but it was enough. Manchester City’s former striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored the winning goal after just four minutes of playing. The Nigerian striker found the net after an assist from James Justin.
On Friday Leicester City paid a visit to the struggling Norwich City at the Carrow Road, but went home dissapointed with a 0-1 loss.
Birmingham City are still playing in the Championship, struggling to return to the Premier League. At this point they are 15th in the Championship standings, so they will continue to wait before they get back to the elite division.
In the FA Cup Birmingham City progressed to the 5th round after a win over Coventry City after penalties in the previous round. The game at the St Andrew’s ended with a 2-2 draw, but during the penalties Josep Ruiz’ boys did better and qualified for the next round.
That’s our sure win prediction today for the FA Cup fixture from the 5th round between Leicester City and Birmingham City. There’s an obvious gap in the quality between these two teams, but sometimes in this competition a lot of surprising things happen.
