Leicester City and Brighton have now both gotten a match in since the break, as both teams played on June 20th.
Leicester City is coming off a 1-1 draw to Watford on Saturday, June 20th. Leicester City controlled most aspects of the game, including a heavy possession advantage of 68% to 32%. Leicester City fired 15 total shots with two shots on target. Leicester City also had seven corner kicks. Ben Chilwell scored an amazing strike in the 90th minute to give Leicester the much-needed lead in the late going. After what seemed like the game-winning dagger for Leicester City, Watford's Craig Dawson had a plan of his own. On the Watford corner, Dawson was able to gain possession and fire a shot that the Leicester keeper could only get a piece of. Watford evened up the score and ran away with the sneaky draw. Leicester City has to be disappointed that they could not hold on for another five minutes for the win.
Brighton has to be happy with how its match with Arsenal ended. Brighton was victorious by the final score of 2-1 against Arsenal, which included heroics in the late stages of the match. Nicolas Pepe gave Arsenal the lead in the second half with a tally in the 68' minute. Brighton was able to rebound nicely and score the equalizer in the 75' minute thanks to Lewis Dunk. In added time, Brighton's Neal Maupay stunned the Arsenal bench and fans at home with a beautiful goal thanks to an even prettier feed. Maupay entered the box and the goalkeeper was in 'no-mans land' as Brighton scored the game-winning goal.
The last time Leicester and Brighton met was on November 23rd, 2019 where Leicester City was victorious by a 2-0 score. Leicester City is 4-1-0 (W-D-L) against Brighton in the last five matches these teams have played against the other.
Brighton has to be feeling great after such a dramatic and exciting victory over tough competition in Arsenal. This match is tighter to me than what the bookies say, so I am going to stay away from the side and take a very intriguing prop bet. Brighton earned a whopping 10 corner kicks in the win over Arsenal, while they conceded eight of its own. Leicester earned seven in its win over Watford, so I will take the over 10 total corner kicks in this match, as I see both teams easily getting to five apiece.
