          Chelsea vs Leicester Prediction, Tips & Stats

          On Sunday, March 17th, a monumental clash takes place at Stamford Bridge for the FA Cup Quarter-Final, where Chelsea and Leicester City fiercely compete, both aiming to seize back the revered cup. The match kicks off at 12:45 and will be broadcast live on BBC One.

          Following a disappointing season so far, the hosts are relying on this cup to bring some silverware to Stamford Bridge this season. The Blues are currently sitting in 11th place in the premier League after only gaining 39 points from their 27 league games this season.

          Pochettino's side come into this game on the back of an inconsistent run of form which has seen them record two defeats, two draws and two victories from their last six league games. However, when they were last in action, Chelsea put on an impressive display as they defeated high-flying Newcastle United 3-1.

          Chelsea have not had an easy route to the quarter-finals as they have been forced into a reply against Aston Villa and they had to come from behind in the 5th round against Leeds United. Despite going behind in the game on two occasions, a 90th minute Connor Ghallager strike was enough to see the blues through into the quarter-finals.

          Leicester are having a successful season in the Championship and are currently sitting in 1st position, looking set for an immediate return to the Premier League.

          However, the Foxes’ form has dipped significantly in recent weeks and they have only won one of their last five games in the Championship.

          To progress through to this stage of the tournament, Leicester have had to beat Millwall, Birmingham and most recently Bournemouth. The Foxes will have to beat Premier League opposition once more if they are to progress any further in the competition.

          The fixture of Chelsea vs Leicester has a long and storied history, with the two sides having first met each other in 1905. In total, the two sides have met each other on 124 occasions, with Chelsea having won 61 and Leicester having won just 28.

          These two sides have met each other in the FA Cup on eight separate occasions, with the most recent cup meeting coming in the 2021 cup final. Youri Tielemans produced one of the great FA Cup final goals to give Leicester City the trophy for the first time in their history.

          The Belgian settled a closely contested encounter with a spectacular right-foot drive that flew beyond Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga into the top corner from 25 yards in the 63rd minute.

          Unsurprisingly, considering the difference in leagues between these two sides, it is Chelsea who are heavily favoured ahead of this weekend’s game and they are currently priced @ 4/9, whilst an away win for Leicester is priced @ 11/2 and a draw is @ 19/5.

          We are backing Chelsea to win and both teams to score because both sides are in a rich vein of goalscoring form ahead of this match. The hosts have scored eight goals in their last three games, whilst Leicester have netted seven goals in their last three FA Cup games.
