Leicester City vs Brentford: prediction for the English Premier League match

Leicester City welcome Brentford to the King Power Stadium on the opening weekend of the English Premier League. What to expect from this fixture? Look out for our prediction below.

Leicester City

Last season, Leicester City won the Community Shield trophy and reached the semifinals of the Conference League, but had a disappointing Premier League campaign. They chalked up 52 points from 38 games and finished in 8th place in the table. 

In their last two pre-season friendly games, the Foxesdefeated Preston (2:1) and Sevilla (1:0). There haven't been many changes in the squad, but Kasper Schmeichel has moved to Nice.

Today the hosts will be without Bertrand, Barnes, and Pereira

Brentford

Brentford made a good impression in their first Premier League season. The Londoners had a powerful start to their campaign, but in the end, finished in 13th place with a total of 48 points from 13 wins and seven draws. The Bees didn't have the depth to compete for a higher spot in the table. 

But in the summer, the Londoners strengthened the squad. Keane Lewis-Potter has moved to Brentford from Hull City (19 million), and Aaron Hickey (16.5 million) has joined the Bees, too.

Ajer, Canos, and Pinnock have been sidelined with injuries.

The defenses of both teams are expected to be reliable today. As the opponents are still far from their optimal shape, they will hope to avoid mistakes and injuries. We don't think there will be many goals in this game.

Second bet — total under 2.5 goals

Prediction: Total under 2.5 goals
