Leicester – Rennes Free Betting Tips
Leicester is not having an easy season this year, neither domestically nor internationally. While they finished 5th in the Premier League in the last two years, they are only 9th this year, so the chances of making headlines at international level are slim. The best chance for a title is probably the Conference League, where they have the strongest team in terms of quality. Therefore, the Englishmen will undoubtedly take the competition seriously.
With two recent wins under their belt, their self-confidence should also be up to the task. After 25 games, Leicester only have a balanced record of 9 wins, 6 draws and 10 defeats. With 43 goals conceded, they are among the 6th worst defensive teams in the Premier League. With 40 goals scored, they have the best attack in the bottom half of the table. The home record is also positive. 6 out of 13 home games were won, 3 others ended in a draw.
In 4 home matches they did not concede a goal. In total, they are 3 matches unbeaten at home, the last of which was a 1-0 win against Leeds. Leicester City are now in the Conference League only because of their 3rd place finish in the Europa League group stage.
With a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats, they played a disappointing group stage. Once again, with a goal difference of 11:12, it was mainly the fault of the defense. They did not keep a single clean sheet in any of their matches. At least they remained unbeaten in their own stadium. On the second occasion, they had to settle for a draw.
The French have reached the Europa League group stage 2 times since the 2018/19 season. Once they reached the knockout stage, but did not have a real chance to win the title. However, in the newly created Conference League, they are among the favorites for the title, also because of their good performance in the group stage.
They remained undefeated in 6 matches and defeated Tottenham Hotspur, among others. They have already gained experience against English teams. 4 wins and 2 draws after 6 matches. With 14 points on their account, they were able to secure the first place with relative ease. With 13 goals, they score more than 2.00 goals per game. 7 goals conceded is not an outstanding value, but a good one. After all, they have only conceded more than one goal in 2 games.
Like their opponents, they were undefeated in 3 home games, with 1 win and 2 draws. Away from home, they won all 3 matches. In Ligue 1, the club is currently in a very good 4th place, only 3 points behind 2nd. Their current form is very good, having won their last 3 matches. They have scored 10 goals.
Overall, they are the 2nd best offensive team, behind Paris Saint Germain, with 53 goals in 27 games. However, away from home, the French only have a negative record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 6 defeats. The last away game, against Montpellier, was their first away win after losing 4 games in a row.
