25-04-23 Daily Football Predictions: Real Madrid, Leicester to win and others

Betting Tips

Real Madrid will look to close the gap on Barcelona at the top of La Liga in the coming days when they make the trip across to Catalonia to face mid-table Girona. Los Blancos felt hard done by in the reverse fixture at the Bernabeu earlier in the season.

The English Premier League’s round 33 matches between Leeds United and Leicester City at Elland Road on Tuesday will feature a relegation six-pointer. Both teams are fighting for survival and enter into this match floating just above the relegation zone. Leeds with just one point and one position above Leicester. They both are separated from the bottom three only by goal difference.

Real Madrid vs Girona

Girona will try to cement their place in the top half of the standings when they play reigning champions Real Madrid on Tuesday evening.

The Red and Whites come into this game off the back of a 1-0 loss to Valladolid, their second goalless game in three. Nonetheless, Michel’s team should be encouraged ahead of Real Madrid’s arrival, as they have transformed Montilivi into a virtual fortress this season.

Girona, for example, has won four of their last five games at this venue. They will be confident of taking something from Tuesday’s game after not losing in their last two La Liga meetings with Los Blancos.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid enters this game full of confidence, having won their last four games in all competitions and keeping a clean sheet in each of them. Despite this, Carlo Ancelotti’s men are still eight points behind Barcelona, who now have a game in hand. Knowing what Real is capable of, we anticipate them to go into every game from here until the end of the season to win or hope that Barça loses points.

Verdict

Real Madrid has won four consecutive 2-0 games, including two in the Champions League against Chelsea and defeats in La Liga against Celta Vigo and Cadiz.

Marco Asensio has been in particularly good form, scoring three times in three games, and he will be eager to prolong that run as Los Blancos look for their 11th win in 16 away league games.

Leeds vs Leicester

Leeds appeared to have turned their season around in mid-March and early April, when they were unbeaten in three of their four matches, winning two of them and climbing out of the relegation zone. They have since reverted to looking over their shoulder, having lost their last three games. After defeating fellow relegation battlers Nottingham Forest 2-1 at home, The Whites endured two severe defeats in their next two games, conceding 11 goals and scoring only two. 

Leicester City gave their survival chances a major boost last time out, coming from behind to beat Wolves 2-1 and move out of the relegation zone, but only by goal difference, so they need to build on that momentum to get further away. Before beating Wolves, the Foxes had gone 10 games without a win, with nine of those games ending in defeat.

The victory came in Dean Smith’s second game in command after taking over for long-term coach Brendan Rodgers, and those concerned will be hoping for a turnaround in fortunes. Leicester is level on points with Everton, whom they will face after this round, and will be well prepared for that encounter if they can pick up maximum points here.

Verdict

Coach Brandon Rodgers couldn’t find the recipe for a strong defense, and Foxes supporters hope Dean Smith can help. However, it is what it is, and Leicester’s defense continues to be shoddy. In 32 Premier League games, the club allowed 56 goals.

That, though, pales in comparison to Leeds United’s defense, which has more holes than Swiss cheese. With 62 goals conceded in 32 games, coach Javi Gracia’s men will have to work extra hard if Tuesday’s game is to be remembered fondly.

Leeds United will rely on their home crowd, but has it contributed anything positive in the last two games? Certainly not. Liverpool thrashed Leeds 1-6 at Ellan Road, only a week after Javi Gracia’s men were defeated 1-5 by strong Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile, Leicester picked up three much-needed points last week when they defeated Wolverhampton 1-2. Leicester has five triumphs, three ties, and only two wins in the last ten games.

Tip: Leicester to Win or Draw / Over 2.5 goals
