Predictions 25-27.02.2023

Leicester City vs Arsenal | Premier League

25/02/2023 15:00

Prediction: 0-1

Everyone is waiting for Arsenal to give up. It happened again when Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester unexpectedly led the Premier League standings, ultimately winning the title. And ironically, it will be up to the Foxes to try to stop the Gunners race. If, however, there was still a need, the reaction of the boys of Arte after the internal defeat against Manchester City was one of great character and personality.

A lot of it will also be needed in the next game because Leicester can’t afford to give anything given its precarious ranking, and the Foxes are also in a good spot given their recent poor play…

  • The last round did not go very well for the hosts: 3-0 at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
  • Previously, however, Leicester had collected four consecutive useful results (a draw and three wins).
  • Arsenal has gone through a difficult period with four games without victories (three defeats and one draw).
  • However, the reaction of the boys led by Arteta, who in the last round imposed themselves on the field of Aston Villa (2-4), is good.

Bournemouth vs Manchester City | Premier League

25/02/2023 17:30

Prediction: 1-2

Bournemouth meets Manchester City on Matchday 25 of the Premier League at the Vitality Stadium. Manchester City will look to rebound after a 1-1 draw at RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. They equalized in the 70th. After a late Chris Wood goal in last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest, the Citizens have drawn their last two games. The loss dropped City from first to second after their 3-1 away win over Arsenal two weeks earlier. They are two points behind Arsenal, which could become five if Arsenal wins its game in hand.

Bournemouth defeated Wolverhampton 1-0 in their most recent road match. The three vital points helped the Cherries move out of the relegation zone and into 17th place with a 5–6–12 record. They’re one point ahead of 18th-place West Ham. Bournemouth’s win over Wolves ended a nine-match losing streak in all competitions. They also kept their fifth clean sheet, something Bournemouth has struggled with all season. The home side has the worst defensive record in the Premier League, conceding 44 goals in 23 matches. Bournemouth has allowed 12 goals at home but 32 away.

  • City has defeated Bournemouth 12 times in all categories. 
  • City-Bournemouth matches have averaged 2.5 goals. 
  • Bournemouth has won one of their last 10 matches in all categories. 
  • Bournemouth have scored one goal in their last five outings. 
  • Four of City’s last five matches have had both sides score. 
  • City have opened four of their last five games.

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, are in a positive series of 8 matches if we only consider the 90 regular-season minutes. Furthermore, always considering the 90 minutes, the Colchoneros have not lost away from home since November 2022.
