Brighton vs Leicester: Draw

Only two of the last seven encounters between Brighton and Leicester have ended in draws. However, that shouldn't deflect from the fact that many of the recent encounters have been closely contested.

Brighton and Leicester have played each other twice this year and, on both occasions, it was the Foxes who prevailed by a one goal margin.

This time round, Brendan Rodgers has the added burden of Europa League soccer to contend with. Clubs with limited strength-in-depth tend to struggle balancing both competitions and the same could be said about Leicester.

The Foxes aren't firing on all cylinders at the moment and recent results certainly underline that. Their 4-1 loss to West Ham for instance was a result that few saw coming. Even their 2-1 win over Norwich City was far from convincing.

Brighton, on the other hand, don't have to worry about European duties. Graham Potter's men have one task on their minds and they've been going about it pretty effectively.

Out of their five competitive games this season, the Seagulls picked up four wins - including a 1-0 win over Brentford last weekend.

Both Brighton and Leicester present a style of soccer that's easy on the eye. We should be in for a high-quality encounter but one which is too close to call. With that in mind, the draw is the way to go.

Brighton vs Leicester: Over two goals in the match

Leicester City games have not fallen short of expectations with regards to goals. In fact, there's been 13 of them in their last four competitive games.

The Foxes have no problem scoring but they do have a serious chink in their defensive armour.

That's good news for a Brighton side who have delivered their fair share of goals this season. Potter's men found the net seven times in their five competitive games - only failing to score in one game, a 2-0 defeat to Everton.

We seem to have a perfect mix of offensive aggression and defensive vulnerabilities which could make for an interesting showing at the Amex this weekend.

For that reason, we're backing over two goals to be scored in this contest.

Brighton vs Leicester: Second-half to have most goals

Earlier we mentioned that there have been 13 goals across Leicester's four most-recent games. Interestingly, nine of them were scored in the second-half.

Brighton are in a similar boat regarding late goals. Their winner against Brentford last weekend arrived in the 90th minute.

What's more, out of the four goals that have been scored across the last two head-to-head games, three of them came after the interval.

With that in mind, we're backing the second-half to produce the most goals at around the 11/10 mark.
