Our football match prediction:
Leicester City are unlikely to defend their Premier League trophy and the team’s new goal is to secure the top flight survival. The Foxes sit in the danger zone ahead of the visit of Hull City and Saturday’s football match is of big importance for the title holders. New coach Craig Shakespeare is eager to help the King Power Stadium outfit avoid relegation to the Championship, but the reigning champions are on a difficult quest. Anyhow, seeing that their next rivals struggle on the travels, we predict that Leicester City will pick up all three points from the match. The Tigers are on a 12-game winless run on the road and it has to be noted that they failed to score in eight of their last nine away games in the English top flight. A man to watch in the away team will be January signing Lazar Markovic, who has been producing fine performances of late.
Highligted 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. The left-sided defender played an important role in the club’s transition from relegation strugglers to genuine title contenders, earning worldwide praise for his performances on the left hand side. 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.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450. Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider. Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
