Wolves v Leicester

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

On Friday night, Wolves will look to enhance their top-four chances when they welcome Midlands rivals Leicester to Molineux.

Wolves head into this Midlands derby in inconsistent form, having won just once in their last six outings in the Premier League. Last time out, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team drew 0-0 at Manchester United.

Their recent poor run of form has seen the home side slip to ninth place in the table and six points off the Champions League spots. However, they will know that the race for a top-four spot in the Premier League is far from finished.

Wolves have been highly inconsistent on home soil of late, winning just two of their last six league matches at Molineux. The home side has kept just one clean sheet in their last eight home league matches, while both teams have scored in seven of their last eight Premier League matches on home soil.

Leicester may no longer be in the race for the top-flight title, but the Foxes still need to secure Champions League football for next season.

Brendan Rodgers team are ten points clear of fifth-place Sheffield United, despite winning just one of their last four league outings. Last time out in the Premier League, the Foxes drew 2-2 at home against fourth-place Chelsea.

Although the visitors away form has slightly dipped of late, the Foxes have still managed to win seven of their last nine league matches on their travels.

Team News

Wolves look set to be without highly-rated full-back Ruben Vinagre through injury, while winger Adam Traore is also a fitness doubt.

Leicester look set to be without Wes Morgan, Daniel Amartey and Nampalys Mendy through injury, while Wilfred Ndidi remains a fitness doubt. January signing Ryan Bennett is ineligible to face his parent club.

Match Prediction

In terms of form, there is very little between these two teams. With that in mind, I am backing this clash to end all square.
