Sheffield United: Data And Current Form
The squad arrives beaten to this duel after losing 1-0 to West Brom as a visitor. It has added 10 games without winning in the English tournament, becoming the only team that has not won 1 game in the competition.
These days he has 1 point in the general table, the product of 1 draw and 9 falls in total. At the moment he is in the last position of the Premier, costing him a lot to be reliable and balanced in his actions.
In terms of goals, he has converted 4 in favour and has yielded 16 against, standing out for being little effective in attack and extremely weak in defensive matters.
Logic indicates that Sheffield United backs down the lines at times, as they do not have what it takes to play their rival as equals. Therefore, it should not surprise us that any stopped ball that it manages to generate (corner or free-kick close to the area) explodes to the maximum.
Leicester City: Data And Current Form
The team visited Zorya in Ukraine for the Europa League and lost 1-0 with little time to go. In the English tournament, they lost 1-2 to Fulham unexpectedly, reaching 2 defeats in a row in the competition.
He currently has 18 points in the general table, the product of 6 victories and 4 falls in total. At the moment he is at the top of the Premier, his objective being to cut the mini negative streak he has.
If it is about goals, he has converted 19 in favour and has yielded 14 in his goal, proving to be an explosive squad in attack but not so reliable when making collective transitions.
Leicester will most likely advance the block at certain points in the game, trying to take advantage of their higher individual hierarchy to elaborate and unbalance. Of course, he will also use deadly counters and stopped balls to score.

In the previous one, Brendan Rodgers’ team starts as a favourite due to the collective potential he has, which is allowing him to fulfil a good campaign in the Premier League.
Given this reality and knowing that Leicester advances and retreats as a block, we believe that they can win the game even by a goal difference after the final whistle (0-1, 0-2 or 1-2).
