Leicester City vs Manchester United Prediction and Betting Preview 26 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-2
Leicester City vs Manchester United PredictionFollowing a slow start to the season, Manchester United looked destined for another disastrous campaign, perhaps missing out on Champions League football for the umpteenth time since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 38
Kick-off:
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester)
However, the arrival of Bruno Fernandes during the January transfer window became the turning point for the Red Devils. Fourteen points behind Leicester City at the turn of the year, United have now usurped the Foxes to move into third place. Such has been their explosive resurgence.

Having accrued a staggering 63 points from 37 games, the Mancunians sit third on the standings, level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea but staying ahead via their superior goal difference. Also, they are only a single point clear of Leicester City who sit just outside of the top-four.

With these sides lying so close to one another heading into the final game-week, the race for Champions League football is set to go right down to the wire. As United tackles Leicester City this Sunday, expect a ballsy affair as both sides go all out for victory to book themselves a ticket to the CL.

Leicester City vs Manchester United Team News

Getting their season off to a flying start, it appeared we would be witnessing another Leicester City fairytale title challenge, similar to the epic one we enjoyed in 2016. However, Liverpool’s superiority over the Foxes left the latter playing second-fiddle for large parts of the season.

With time, Leicester City began to lose their footing, falling off the pace in the running for the title and ultimately exiting the Champions League places altogether. Their spiraling has been very worrying, many already calling for the sack of head coach Brendan Rodgers.

Looking to strengthen their hold on third-place and fend off challenges from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, Leicester City were required to clinch maximum points against the Lilywhites. Sadly, they were easily dispatched by Tottenham, a result that saw them relinquish their top-four status.

Meanwhile, high-flying Manchester United played host to West Ham on the last matchday, knowing fully well that a point will be enough to power them into the Champions League places. Deemed huge favorites for victory, the Red Devils fell short of expectations.

Paul Pogba committed a howler late in the first-half after handling the ball in his own area, and gifting the Hammers a penalty – one that was expertly fired through the middle into the back of the net. Soon enough, Greenwood got on the scoresheet to secure that much-needed point for his side.

That draw was enough to propel United into third-place as Leicester City surrendered their Champions League spot. The Foxes taking on Solskjaer’s side this weekend, they will be looking to secure a positive result to finish within the highly-coveted top-four mix.

Any side that comes out tops in the fixture will be guaranteed a place in next season’s edition of the CL, regardless of Chelsea’s result against Wolves. A draw will be enough to send Leicester City through if Wolves manage to topple the Blues on Sunday.

However, the surest way for the Foxes to make the Champions League cut will be clinching maximum points against United. This way, they do not have to worry about results elsewhere. Surely, the visitors will be gunning for victory also, to guarantee themselves a spot among the top-four.

Leicester vs Man United Predictions

Taking these into context, expect a thrilling affair between these two sides at the King Power Stadium as they go all out for victory. These sides are likely to throw caution to the wind here, in search of the three points as Champions League football beckons.

As such, expect a flurry of goals in the East Midlands. Given Manchester United have refused to admit defeat since Project Restart, they are surely not losing this. The safest punt will be a double chance backing the Red Devils for victory.
