08-05-23 Daily Football Predictions: Fulham to extend Foxes Woes

Betting Tips

When held to a 2-2 stalemate by fellow strugglers Everton at home the previous time out. Leicester wasted the opportunity to move away from relegation danger. The pressure is now on to pick up a win against Fulham.

Losing at Craven Cottage could endanger the Foxes’ prospects of avoiding the drop. Given that they still have games against Liverpool, Newcastle, and West Ham and have the only goal difference between them and those teams.

Udinese will play Sampdoria on Matchday 34 in an effort to get back to winning in the Serie A after a 1-1 draw with the newly promoted champions Napoli. The Zebrette are mired in the middle of the standings with 43 points, but they won’t have a better opportunity than this to reclaim their place in the Italian first division. 

La Samp, who only have 17 points to their name, are at the bottom of the standings. The side at the bottom has one foot in Serie B.

Leicester City vs Fulham

The Foxes have had a forgettable season, to be perfectly honest. They have lost 20 of their 34 games so far, including 11 away from home, for a total of 20 defeats. Nevertheless, the fact that things are starting to go in the right direction for Dean Smith’s team after their last three victories should give them hope going into the game on Monday.

Jamie Vardy, who has scored for Leeds and Everton in back-to-back games, is back among Leicester’s goal scorers and, feeling revitalized and fresh, might be an asset to the team.

 However, they are stuck in their current situation because of their past defensive shortcomings. Relegation shouldn’t even be a consideration with the attacking quality Leicester has available, particularly thanks to the innovative influence of Maddison and Youri Tielemans.

With four games left, Fulham, who had a fantastic debut season back in the Premier League, is still on track to finish in the top half.

The Cottagers have lost three games in a row, but it is difficult to find fault with one-goal losses away at Liverpool and Aston Villa, two teams that are currently on fire, and a 2-1 loss to Manchester City at home. It would be inaccurate to claim Fulham is on vacation after victories over Leeds and Everton earlier in the season.

In contrast, Fulham, who are now in tenth position, is one of the teams that has nothing to lose at this point in the season. The hosts have dropped their previous three Premier League games, in contrast to rising Leicester. They also lost their last two home contests against the Foxes, so they’ll need to play well on Monday if they want to snap their losing skid.

Verdict

The Foxes are fighting to stay in the Premier League, and a victory at Craven Cottage on Monday might be crucial to their effort. In an effort to snap their brief losing streak, Fulham will look to Leicester as the ideal opponent to pick up their game against.

We are supporting Silva’s team to earn all three points on Monday after Fulham defeated the Foxes twice in their last three meetings. Two of the hosts’ last five victories have come against relegation-fighting opponents. In their last six league games, the Foxes have only won once, drawn twice, and lost three times, all to teams higher up the standings.

In five of the last seven games between these two clubs in all competitions, both teams have scored. Our forecast for Monday’s matchup is strengthened by the fact that both clubs have scored in three of Fulham’s and five of Leicester’s most recent Premier League games.

Udinese vs Sampdoria

Udinese have a solid chance of gaining three more points to their total in round 34, despite their lackluster performance thus far. On Monday, they play Sampdoria, and they’ll be frustrated not to have won at Dacia Arena – Stadio Friuli.  With their performances against Sampdoria in the previous season, the Zebrette’s fortunes began to change.

Udinese, who had suffered defeat in each of their three prior matches, had a perfect record against the Blucerchiati in 2021–22 and is our pick to defeat them both.

For Dejan Stankovic’s team, things are not looking good as any prospects of a late comeback seem to be fading with each match. After losing to in-form Torino on Tuesday, Sampdoria has now gone six games without a victory.

Following some poor performances in this Serie A campaign recently, Udinese desperately need points from the match against Sampdoria to get back on track.

Verdict

With a 1-1 draw against Napoli in midweek, Udinese once again demonstrated their ability to produce favorable results at home. Since the year’s beginning, the Zebrette have now lost just once at the Dacia Arena. However, Sampdoria’s fate seems almost certainly closer to the bottom of the table, as their recent 2-0 loss to Torino at home maintained them ten points from safety. This should be an easy victory for Udinese because La Samp has dropped six of their past eight away games.

Kingsley Ehizibue’s goal in the 88th minute was all it took for Udinese to defeat Sampdoria in January, and Monday’s rematch between the two teams is expected to be a game with few goals. Under 2.5 goals have been scored in three of La Samp’s past four Serie A games, and in five of their last eight away games. When these drab teams clash, don’t be surprised if the game isn’t particularly exciting.
