Leicester v Brentford Match Preview & Betting Tips - Sunday 7th August

We have 10/1 and 13/2 betting tips for the Premier League clash on Sunday


Brentford head to the east Midlands to face Leicester on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign on Sunday, and it has the ingredients to be a mouth-watering clash.

Last term, the Bees exceeded all expectations, and they were a breath of fresh air in England’s top-flight division.

Leicester, meanwhile, seemed to go through the motions for large chunks of the campaign before stepping their foot on the gas to seal a top-eight finish.

Brentford are hoping to clinch a deal for Mikkel Damsgaard who was one of the breakout stars at last summer’s European Championship as a replacement for Christian Eriksen, but we will have to wait and see if he’s registered in time to feature.

In the meantime, we have scoured through the markets and selected a couple of tips that you should include on your betting slip.

Leicester to ease to victory

With teams that have come up from the Championship the previous season, replicating the feat of their debut campaign in the Premier League can be notoriously tough.

The unfortunate second season syndrome can kick in, and for Brentford, Thomas Frank has a task on his hands trying to match the performance levels of last term. After all, teams know a bit more about his side and they will have cottoned on to their style of football.

Arsenal were caught short-handed against the Bees on the opening day of last season, but Leicester will avoid the same fate. Interestingly, Leicester have won both of their Premier League encounters against Brentford, and by the same score (2-1).

However, Rodgers’ charges will step things up, and they should run out comfortable winners. If you are tempted by the Correct Score market, Coral is serving a price of 10/1 for Leicester to win 2-0.

James Maddison to make his mark

James Maddison is one of those smart players who can break between the lines and he can split defences with his exquisite passes. One noticeable trait, is that he has become more clinical in front of goal.

Last term was his best for the Foxes from a goalscoring perspective, as he netted 12 times from 35 Premier League appearances. Maddison has often been linked to Manchester United, but he hasn’t allowed himself to be distracted by external noises.

He has an uncanny knack for popping up with important strikes, and he could well get on the scoresheet against Brentford like he did last term with a sublime free-kick at home. The goalscorer market is always intriguing, especially the First Goalscorer section. If you fancy Maddison to break the deadlock against Brentford, then he’s valued at 13/2 with Paddy Power to do so, which might be worth exploring further.
