Leicester City did poorly in the Premier League this season. With 49 points from 13 victories and 10 draws, the team is 9th in the standings and can at best move up one position. In the last two games, the Foxes beat Watford (5:1) and drew with Chelsea (1:1).

Southampton had a good run in the FA Cup, where the team prevailed over Swansea, Coventry City, and West Ham before losing to Manchester City in the quarterfinal battle.
In the Premier League, the Saints occupy the 15th line with 40 points from nine victories and 13 draws. Raplh Hasenhuttl's men lost in the previous three matches.
Livramento and Forster are sidelined through injuries.
In 3 of the last 5 head-to-head games, goals were scored in both halves.
This bet played in 3 of Leicester's last 4 games.
The hosts won 2 of the last 4 head-to-head games.
Leicester are a better team and should win the upcoming game. They hold an advantage in the head-to-head and have the support of the stands. This is a great chance for the Foxes to end a poor season on a positive note.
Our prediction — Leicester to win
We do not expect an exciting high-scoring game here - both sides are tired after a long and difficult season. Probably just one or two goals will decide the outcome of the match.
Second bet — total under 2.5 goals
