Our football match prediction:
King Power Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Leicester City and Crystal Palace. The Foxes are on a four-game winning run in the Premier League and they did well to crush Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium in their last league match. French tactician Claude Puel is doing a great job with Leicester City and his men are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace. Riyad Mahrez has been raising his form week by week and all eyes will be on the Algeria international when the two sides face each other on Matchday 18. The Eagles, on the other hand, scored two late goals in the midweek fixture against Watford and picked up vital three points from the match. However, seeing that Palace’s performances on the road leave a lot to be desired, we predict the Foxes will give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend.
Highlighted Player (Fuchs):
Christian Fuchs is an Austrian defender born on 7th April 1986, who has gone on to become one of the most famous footballers in history of the national team. The left back played for Wiener Neustadt and SV Mattersburg on domestic stage before securing a high-profile move to Bochum in the summer of 2008. Fuchs played for VFL Bochum, Mainz and Schalke in Germany, putting in some strong showings, but it was a free transfer to then Premier League strugglers Leicester City that would make him a household name.

Very strong in defensive tasks and possessing an excellent left foot, Fuchs has contributed to quite a few goals his teammates have scored over the years, and he has also become an indispensable member of the Austria national team that secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals in France in style, earning over 70 caps in the process.
