Southampton vs Leicester City match preview

Two sides eyeing a bounce-back result are set to lock horns as part of the upcoming Championship gameweek on Friday, September 15th.

The matchup in question will see Southampton act as hosts, in a meeting with Leicester City.

Beginning with the former, Southampton, on the back of a fine haul of 10 points from 12 to start the campaign, were brought back down to earth in a major way last time out.

This came upon the Saints making the trip to the Stadium of Light, for a meeting with Sunderland.

Bizarrely, despite dominating when it came to possession, Russell Martin’s troops completely capitulated on the defensive side of the ball, en route to an eventual 5-0 drubbing.

Such woes have seen Friday’s hosts tumble to 7th in the standings in England’s 2nd tier, whilst in possession of a -2 goal difference.

Hopeful of putting an end to such hopes, though, will be a Leicester City side too eyeing a bounce-back display.

Like their hosts-in-waiting, Leicester kicked the club’s efforts to clinch an immediate return to the Premier League into gear in fine fashion, remaining unbeaten across the first four Championship gameweeks.

In the Foxes’ final outing leading into the international break, however, they, too, were forced to face up to a first defeat of the term.

This came by way of a home meeting with in-form Hull City.

Despite racking up no fewer than 21 shots at goal, a lack of ruthlessness ultimately cost Enzo Maresca and co. dear, on their way to a 1-0 loss.

Leicester, as a result, sit 3rd in the table, two points clear of Southampton.

So, all of this taken into consideration, how do we at 101 envision Friday night’s action unfolding at St. Mary’s Stadium?

Though visitors Leicester should be considered favourites, based on the available bookmakers’ odds, we are backing an eventual stalemate between the two sides.
