GILLINGHAM VS LEICESTER CITY PREDICTION 07.01.2023
Competition: England - FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 7th, January 2023
Kickoff: 12:30 UK/13.30 CET
Venue: Priestfield Stadium (Gillingham)
Last season, Gillingham dropped out of the third tier of English football after nine years and moved to the fourth, better known as "League Two". Many expected their return to "League One" lớn be quick, but the popular "The Gills" continue lớn sink deeper and deeper and are one of the main candidates for relegation from the league. Disappointing games have glued Gillingham lớn the very bottom of the table with 14 miserable points, but luckily for them, they are not too threatened, because they are only five points behind the safety zone.
Meanwhile, Leicester had a "criminally" bad start lớn the new season in the Premier League, they stayed at the bottom of the table for a long time, but thanks lớn a great series of results (five wins from six games) just before the World Cup break, they managed to escape from danger zones. How much the one-month break knocked Leicester out of rhythm is best evidenced by the fact that they lost all three Premier League games in the rest of the season, so this terrible form brought them closer to only two points from the first most threatened team. Let’s check soccer tips of the day in here
Gillingham vs Leicester City Betting Tips: BTTS - NO
The last two league clashes date back to the 2004/05 season when these two teams competed in the Championship. In that campaign, Leicester was the more successful team, achieving both triumphs with identical results - 2-0.
The situation in Gillingham is extremely alarming. The fact that this club did not taste the "sweetness of victory" in the championship for three full months, taking only 4 out of a possible 36 points, sounds incredible.
to make matters worse, their form has looked creepy in recent weeks. An FA Cup triumph over Dagenham & Redbridge (3-2) was their only success in their last six games in all competitions, suffering five defeats in that time.
What worries coach Neil Harris much more is the visibly ineffective attack from his team. In fact, The Gills are by far the worst scorers in the championship, given that they managed lớn threaten the opponent's goalkeepers only seven times this season, which is a very disappointing performance.
Namely, Gillingham has remained without a goal scored in as many as 16 out of a total of 23 games, so they simply have nothing lớn look for against Leicester who was very decent in the back line away lately, keeping four clean sheets in their last five away games.
There is no need lớn waste words on how much Leicester is the favorite. The difference in quality is heaven and earth, and we think that "The Foxes" will not have a better opportunity than this lớn finally return to winning ways. Leicester should comfortably secure a victory with nil against a team that managed to score just one goal in their last 9 league games. There are some free soccer tips today in this forum
Gillingham Team News
39-year-old goalkeeper Glenn Morris has returned from his loan spell at Crawley Town. He was in goal against Stevenage in the last round and manager Neil Harris could keep him against Leicester.
For the most part, Gillingham has no problems with injuries or suspensions, so the coach could count on all key players. He will probably start with a 5-4-1 formation, like in the EFL Cup against Wolves.
