Leicester City v Newcastle: Latest Odds, Team News, Predictions And Betting Tips

The Foxes have won five of their six games under new boss Brendan Rodgers and should have enough to see off the travel-sick Magpies on Friday night.

Far from the bad blood under the stewardship of Claude Puel, Leicester City fans will be dreaming of another European adventure.

With Manchester City firm favourites to beat Watford in the FA Cup final and having already lifted the Carabao Cup, seventh place in the Premier League could yield Europa League qualification.

Currently occupying seventh place, the Foxes are  with 888Sport to bolster their hopes courtesy of a win at the King Power Stadium. The arrival of Brendan Rodgers from Celtic has seen the East Midlands club win five of their six top-flight encounters.

Newcastle have lost back-to-back league games but it's  that the visitors come out on top here. A draw is available at  with the same firm.

Team News

Marc Albrighton and Daniel Amartey are long-term absentees for the home side although the former is back in training. Harry Maguire should return to the starting line-up having missed the win over Huddersfield.

Newcastle will continue to be without Florian Lejeune and Sean Longstaff.


While the visitors should be safe from relegation, Rafa Benitez's side aren't yet assured of their top-flight status. Much of the Magpies' issues stem from a lack of threat in the final third, especially on the road. A tally of 12 goals in 16 games away from St. James' Park is the worst total of any team outside the bottom three.

By contrast, Leicester are enjoying a purple patch under their new manager, scoring 14 goals since Rodgers' arrival.

Tips and Predictions
Leicester look worthy favourites at  to Friday night's encounter. The Foxes came out on top 2-0 in the reverse meeting and a win to nil is priced at  could be an interesting option for those seeking a bigger potential return.

While this selection has only paid out on three occasions at the King Power Stadium this term, Newcastle's lack of end-product on the road makes it look worthy of consideration.
