Leicester City will host Manchester City in the matchday 27 of the Premier League. The two teams are separated by four points on the table, with an advantage for Manchester, who is in second place, while Leicester is third. The game that can decide the second place of the table will start at 5.30 pm on Saturday.
The clashes between Leicester and Manchester City are already a classic of English football and this will be the 120th time that two teams will meet. The h2h is very favorable to citizens, who won 58 of these games, a trend that is confirmed the sample of the last five games. The Manchester team won three, lost one and draw one - only one of these matches did not witness goals on both sides.
Leicester's side is far from being in the good shape presented in the first half of the season. They arrive at this game in a series of three consecutive games without winning, with two draws and a defeat in the process, results that cost second place to Manchester City. Against the best attack in the competition, Leicester's defense will have another difficult test that could be one of the match key factors.
Manchester City goes into the field without pressure, knowing that they will maintain the second place at the end of the day. However, a victory at Leicester is a big step to guarantee second place in the Premier League, as the distance is increased to seven points. The Citizens will host Real Madrid next week, for a champions league huge clash, and Guardiola may promote some changes in the starting 11 to face Leicester, something that should not reduce the little favoritism of the Citizens for this match.
