Leicester City vs Sheffield Wednesday prediction and betting tips on February 13, 2024
On Tuesday, the lion's share of football fans' attention will be focused on the Champions League. Even in the UK, people will be keeping an eye on the performances of their top club, Manchester City. However, concurrently, there will be a round of matches in the local Championship. The league leader, Leicester, will host the underdog, Sheffield Wednesday - is there any intrigue here? The website audience is offered an exclusive prediction for this match on February 13, 2024.
Leicester City is currently progressing confidently towards achieving its goal.
The "Foxes" are well-known to everyone, as they became the most sensational champion in all of Europe in this century. Not long ago, they had a period not as bright as under Ranieri, but still decent, when the team, led by Brendan Rodgers, played in European competitions and won cups. However, it all fell apart not in the last but the previous season when they were relegated to the Championship. From there, they are being lifted by Maresca, and they are coping well. His charges have confidently topped the table and, despite some setbacks, are heading towards their goal, increasing their lead. They recently ended victoriously against Watford away, winning 2-1.
Sheffield Wednesday has yet to pleasantly surprise.
The "Owls" have won far more trophies than their upcoming opponent. But who remembers that, as it was decades ago? The reality is that they have been struggling to establish themselves even in the Championship. They made a new attempt after last season, finishing only third in League 1, but then winning the playoff matches. They are scraping points, especially in recent weeks, and only Rotherham's situation is worse. There was also the cup, where they faced Coventry and suffered a crushing 1-4 defeat in a replay. However, they unexpectedly won dryly against Birmingham in the last round, with a score of 2-0.
After 2014, there were no official matches between the clubs. Only in November 2023, they finally played, ending in a draw in Sheffield.
