Match Predictions and Betting Odds
Leicester’s Last Premier League Game
Leicester were held to a 1-1 draw, away in Burnley, in their last Premier League game on 3 March. Early in the game, Matej Vydra scored his first Premier League goal in 13 months to put Burnley in front. But on 34 minutes, a clipped pass from Wilfred Ndidi into the Burnley box was the cue for Kelechi Iheancho to peel away from Ben Mee. With a demonstration of perfect technique, the Leicester striker kept track of the ball that dropped over his shoulder to lash home a left-footer on the volley to cancel out Vydra’s strike and that’s how the score stayed.
Manchester City’s last Premier League Game
Champions-elect Man City achieved a staggering 21st win in succession when they overwhelmed Wolves 4-1 on 2 March. After a brief scare early in the game, Gabriel Jesus scored a brace, on either side of a goal by Riyad Mahrez at the Etihad. Leandro Dendoncker’s own goal helped City to a 1-0 lead in a dominant first half before Wolves fought back with a header by Conor Coady to level the score. A close-range effort by Jesus put City in front again en route to a brilliant win.
