Our football match prediction:
Leicester City are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Stoke City. The Foxes are eyeing their fifth straight win in all competitions and a victory over Stoke would see them move a little closer to the top half of the Premier League standings. Jamie Vardy has found his goal-scoring touch of late and the team’s top scorer is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Craig Shakespeare is doing a great job with the reigning champions and he will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration after helping the Foxes book their place in the Champions League quarter-finals. The Potters head into Saturday’s football match following a 2-1 loss to Chelsea and seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at King Power Stadium Leicester City recorded a 3-1 win over Stoke City.
