Derby County vs Leicester City Prediction 27 January 2017

Tournament: FA Cup
Location: Pride Park Stadium
Match date: 27.01.2017 at 19:55

On January 27 2017 at 19:55 in the upcoming game of the fourth round of the English FA Cup at the Pride Park Derby County play against Leicester.

Even though Derby County don’t show any outstanding performance in the current season, they are still in the race for the places in the promotion play-offs zone of the English football League Championship. The victory against Reading in the previous game 3:2 broke their three matches long winless series. In those previous matches Derby County lost to Leeds 1:0 and Norwich 3:0 and drew Wigan Athletic 0:0. We must also admit that Derby started their way in the FA Cup one round ago with the victory against West Bromwich 2:1.

As for Leicester, they don’t seem to be dangerous even for the middle-peasants of the national elite division anymore. As their manager says, the task of the Foxes for the current season is to gain 40 points by the end of it. Yet, they may have to try even for such a modest tusk as the series of mistakes they made at the start of the season don’t let them get higher above the relegation zone. They are now just 5 points above the 18th position. In the previous third round of the FA Cup Leicester outplayed Everton 1:2.

The statistics and the results of the previous head-to-heads of the teams show the advantage of Leicester. In fact, last time the teams met was in January 2014 and Leicester won at home with the devastating 4:1. Derby County haven’t lost at home since September 24 which is nine matches in a row. As for Leicester, they only got one away victory in that same period against Everton in the FA Cup. We think that in the upcoming game both teams are going to score at least once.
