Leicester vs Birmingham Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


A stuttering Leicester City host Birmingham at King Power Stadium in the FA Cup 5th Round. The Foxes are in poor form and struggling to score while the Blues haven’t tasted defeat in their previous 13 matches in all competitions.

Leicester City Form


Leicester have hit a rough patch, failing to win their last five matches and unable to score in their last three. The Foxes were knocked out of the League Cup after a 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa before a 2-2 home draw against Chelsea in the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers’ side then drew 0-0 at Wolves, were beaten 1-0 at home by Man City before a 1-0 defeat at Norwich. Dennis Praet hit the post and Wilfred Ndidi had a great chance to equalise as Leicester left with a 1.47-0.60 advantage in expected goals.

Those results have seen Leicester slip back on the EPL table where they third, five points ahead of Chelsea and eight points ahead of Manchester United and Wolves.

Leicester City News


Jamie Vardy missed Leicester's defeat to Norwich and the striker is unlikely to be risked here so Ayoze Perez or Kelechi Iheanacho should start up front.

Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi came off the bench against Norwich and could start while centre-back Ryan Bennett could make his debut. Second-string players including Demarai Gray and Marc Albrighton are both a chance to start.

Birmingham are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in all competitions and sit nine points off sixth spot in the Championship. Pep Clotet’s side have drawn their last four matches.

A 3-3 draw against Sheffield Wednesday was followed by a 0-0 draw at Millwall and a 2-2 draw at Queens Park Rangers. Scott Hogan scored both goals to make it six goals in his last seven matches.

Birmingham News


Midfielders Josh McEachran and Jacques Maghoma are both injured for Birmingham.

Leicester vs Birmingham Head to Head


Leicester have a 30-28 advantage over Birmingham with 15 draws. Their last competitive match was in the 2013/14 English Championship where Leicester won 2-1 in Birmingham, Lloyd Dyer and Jamie Vardy on target for the Foxes before Peter Lövenkrands pulled one back late on.

Leicester vs Birmingham Match Up


Leicester have hit a rough patch and are finding it hard to score. Without top scorer Jamie Vardy, it could be a difficult match for the Foxes against a Birmingham side that haven’t lost in their last 13 matches.
