              The Championship has just two games left of the regular season and still has a couple teams with a shout of automatic promotion, with both Leicester and Southampton looking to make an immediate return to the Premier League.

              Leicester currently sit top of the Championship after 43 games. The Foxes have 29 wins, four draws and ten losses, leaving them on 91 points, two points ahead of Ipswich and four points ahead of Leeds.

              The Foxes have been amongst the goals this season, scoring 79 goals in 43 games, an average of 1.88 goals a game. Leicester have also been strong defensively, conceding 39 goals and keeping 13 clean sheets.

              Southampton sit just below Leicester in fourth in the Championship. In 43 games, The Saints have 25 wins, nine draws and nine losses which leaves them on 84 points, only five points from automatic promotion.

              The Saints have also been on fire in front of goal, scoring 84 goals in 43 games which gives them an average of 2.00 goals a game. Southampton have struggled at the other end of the pitch, conceding 56 goals but keeping 12 clean sheets.

              This will be the 100th meeting between Leicester and Southampton, with the first meeting coming back in the 1898 FA Cup. Not much separates the two sides, with Southampton having 36 wins in comparison to Leicester’s 33 wins, with the other 30 games ending in a draw.

              Recent Form

              In their last five games in all competitions, Leicester have three wins and two losses.

              Gabriel Sara gave Norwich the lead in the 20th minute but Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall equalised for Leicester before halftime. After the hour mark Stephy Mavididi put The Foxes ahead and in added time Jamie Vardy secured the 3 - 1 win.

              Dewsbury-Hall opened the scoring for Leicester just before the 30 minute mark but Jay Stansfield drew Birmingham level on the stroke of halftime. Despite having 17 shots with nine of them on target, it took until the 87th minute for Leicester to finally find the back of the net again, Mavididi scoring for Leicester in the 87th minute for a 2 - 1 win.

              However, the next time out saw Leicester handed a shock loss by Milwall. The Lions had just 27% of the possession but Ryan Longman scored the only goal of the game in the 59th minute to give Millwall the 1 - 0 win.

              It was another loss for Leicester on the road against Plymouth Argyle. Mustapha Bundu found the back of the net in the 21st minute with the only goal of the game to give Plymouth the 1 - 0 win, even with Leicester having 70% of the possession.

              The last time out for Leicester was against West Brom. Wilfred Ndidi gave Leicester the 1 - 0 lead at halftime and Vardy doubled that lead just after the hour. Jed Wallace did get West Brom on the scoresheet but Leicester held on for the 2 - 1 win.

              In their last five games in all competitions, Southampton have three wins, one draw and one loss.

              The trip to Ewood Park saw only five shots on target for the entire 90 minutes. Southampton had just two of those shots and even with 69% of the possession, The Saints couldn’t find the back of the net and had to settle for a 0 - 0 draw.

              Southampton were back to scoring and back to winning against Coventry. Kyle Walker-Peters and Che Adams both scored in the first half to give The Saints the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Jake Bidwell did score for Coventry with 20 minutes to go but Southampton held on for the 2 - 1 win.

              Will Smallbone opened the scoring for Southampton in the first minute and Adams doubled the lead in the 20th minute. Ryan Porteous got Watford on the scoresheet before halftime and Ismael Kone equalised for The Hornets in the 85th minute. However, Flynn Downes found the back of the net in the 99th minute to give Southampton the 3 - 2 win.

              Adams was on the scoresheet yet again, this time with two goals against Preston. Stuart Armstrong joined him on the scoresheet to secure the 3 - 0 win for Southampton.

              The most recent outing for Southampton was against Cardiff. Southampton took the early lead through Joe Aribo but in the last 20 minutes Famara Diedhiou equalised and in the sixth minute of extra time, Cian Ashford found the back of the net to give Cardiff the 2 - 1 win.

              Footy Accumulators Prediction

              Leicester have promotion back to the Premier League in their sights and despite a drop in form are likely to get the win over Southampton. However, The Saints are likely to make them work, with both sides on the scoresheet. Leicester 3 - 1 Southampton
