Our prediction for this Championship match:
King Power Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Leicester City and Watford, the two promotion-chasing sides. The Foxes are leading the chase for automatic promotion, but they head into the match following back-to-back defeats to Leeds United and Middlebrough. The league leaders faced a tough fixture list before the international break, but they are surely capable of beating the Hornets in front of home fans.
Experienced forward Jamie Vardy is pushing for a start, while all Wilfried Ndidi, Callum Doyle, and Dennis Praet remain in the recovery room. Yunus Akgun is a major doubt. The Hornets, on the other hand, rolled over Rotherham United 5-0 in their last league match, but given their anything but good away record (1-3-3), we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Valerien Ismael should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (Watford):
Watford FC is an English football club founded in 1881 and is playing its home games in the Vicarage Road which holds a capacity of 21 000 seats. Watford managed to promote to the Premier League in 2014/2015 after playing for 8 years in lower football divisions.
The club colors of Watford are yellow and red. The away kit of Watford in the current season is in blue. Watford FC is also known as The Hornets of which their fans are very proud of.
Watford FC never won any title in the clubs history. In the season 1983/1984 Watford managed to qualify for the UEFA Cup (former Europa League) where the club got knocked out in the best of 16 round after playing against Sparta Praha. Watford FC is a stereotype UK football club where working hard is more important than talent. Well known football players that ever played for Watford FC are Ben Foster, John Barnes, Ashley Young, Luke Young and David James.
