England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6 March 2021

Brighton is near to the relegation zone this term on the table as it stands. The host has been winless for the past four clashes in the campaign, including a double loss in their schedule. They will return home after a 1-0 loss on the road against West Brom last time out in the league.
Leicester has taken a hit in their run for the title and they are at the third spot as of now. The away team has dropped points twice within the recent five fixtures in their league form. They will visit on the back of a 1-3 loss at home against Arsenal in the previous encounter in the campaign.
Brighton vs Leicester Head-to-head (h2h)

- The host has won only two of their last 12 overall clashes.

- Their previous encounter gave a 1-0 home win for the Foxes.
- Only one of their last five matches has ended in a draw.
Brighton vs Leicester Prediction
Winless in their last five fixtures across all major competitions in their schedule, Brighton doesn’t pose a huge threat to the opponents in the middle. They have scored only one goal in their last four clashes in their form, which shows their struggle to find the back of the net and their shaky defense.
Leicester has lost none of their last eight h2h meetings with the host. The away team will come in hot with an unbeaten streak for their past 11 outings. Besides, the Foxes have a 23-points lead over the home team on the table this term as it stands. They will come in with 45 goals scored in 26 attempts until now.
Based on their scoring spree and the poor form of the host, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably come in handy to yield decent returns in the clash.
Facing a strong side after two consecutive losses in PL will affect the morale of the home team despite the ground advantage. Hence, the double chance favoring Leicester will probably be the best bet for the punter in the encounter
