Walsall vs. Leicester Prediction, Tips & Stats

For our Walsall vs. Leicester prediction, we're going for a 3-1 win for the away side.


League Two Walsall are looking for an FA Cup giant killing as they host Premier League side Leicester City in the FA Cup this weekend.


Walsall are currently sitting 11th in the League Two table and are enjoying a solid season as they sit just four points outside of the play-off spots.


The Saddlers are playing their first FA Cup fourth round tie since the 2015/16 seasons in which they were knocked out by Reading, and if they are successful here it would be the first time they've reached the fifth round of this competition for nineteen years.


They enter this game in the midst of a solid run of form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five matches in all competitions, with their most recent game a 1-1 draw with Tranmere Rovers.


Walsall and Leicester haven't faced one another competitively since the 2008/09 campaign when both sides locked horns in League One, a game the now Premier League side won by a convincing 4-1 scoreline.


A win here would be gigantic for Walsall but it goes without saying that it will be hard to come by. Leicester are in need of building some momentum and they'll be looking at this fixture as an opportunity to kickstart a winning run.



Leicester City are having a hard time of things in the Premier League this season as they sit 14th in the Premier League table, just one point clear of the relegation zone.


Leicester claimed a triumphant win over Chelsea in the 2020/21 to win the FA Cup for the first time, but their defence of the trophy did not go to plan last season as they were eliminated by Nottingham Forest at this stage, so they're looking to go one better here.


The Foxes have played nine times against sides from the fourth tier of English football in this competition and have emerged on the losing side only once in a defeat to Newport County four seasons ago. Coincidentally, the Newport manager on that day was the same man who'll be in the Walsall dugout this weekend: Michael Flynn.


Leicester's form is not great heading into this game having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches in all competitions so a win here is a must.


Leicester are looking to build some much-needed momentum and without European football they'll likely see the FA Cup as a chance to aid their Premier League survival bid. They should field a strong starting lineup and win without too much difficulty here.
