Aston Villa vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Odds
Leicester City is set to host Aston Villa for their next Premier League fixture on Saturday, 23rd April. Brendan Rodgers’ men maintained a good unbeaten streak across all competitions before losing to Newcastle last Sunday. A home win against the Villa will give them the much-needed confidence before the Europa Conference Semi-Final match against Roma.
Aston Villa will aim to avoid their 5th straight loss when they face the Foxes at the King Power Stadium. The team manager Steven Gerrard still seems optimistic to finish in the top half of the table but he needs to think of a new strategy for the upcoming matches. In the post-match conference, Gerrard said:
“I’ve got to get the balance right and think about the now in terms of finishing the season as strongly as we can. I see it as an opportunity to try and finish in the top-10 which I see as a real positive because it hasn’t happened for many years here.”
Aston Villa got a major blow after left-back Lucas Digne suffered an injury in the last match against Tottenham. He may have to miss the remainder of the season. Jamie Vardy is still unavailable but there are no new injury concerns for the Foxes.
