Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on King Power Stadium when Leicester City and Liverpool face each other on Matchday 26. The Foxes suffered a shocking elimination in the FA Cup at the weekend, with the team losing to League One side Millwall at the Den. However, Claudio Ranieri’s men are still playing on two fronts as they booked their place in the Champions League last 16. The team’s main goal is to secure yet another top flight survival and Saturday’s football match is of big importance for the hosts, who are only one point clear of the relegation zone in the Premier League standings. Thanks to a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur Liverpool put an end to their six-game winless run in the league and seeing that a victory over Leicester City would see them climb to the Champions League berth, we predict that Jurgen Klopp’s men will stick to their attacking style of play. Taking everything into account, both teams are likely to score in the King Power Stadium showdown.
Highlighted Player (Andy King):
Born in Barnstaple, England on 29 October 1988, Andy King is a Welsh professional footballer famous for only representing one club in his career. The midfielder had began his youth career at Chelsea, but moved to Leicester in 2004 and he was handed his first professional contract in May 2007. He has since represented Foxes in League One, Championship and the Premier League, making over 300 league appearances and scoring more than 55 goals in the process. While he was not exactly a first team regular during the 2015/2016 season that will forever remained etched in the memory of Leicester City fans, King made over 20 league outings to help the Foxes lift the coveted trophy for the first time in history. Meanwhile, he has made more than 30 appearances for the Welsh national team, starting no fewer than five games as the Dragons secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1982, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby. The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title. Liverpool won their last Champions League trophy in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched five European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs. The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
