Match: Hull City – Leicester Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Saturday, 13 August, 2016
Start time: 12:30 UK
The new season in the Premier League will open this Saturday with a match between Hull City and Leicester.
Hull was presented at a good level for most of the season in the Championship, but in the end failed to fight for the top two positions. So “The Tigers” had to go through the playoffs to return to the Premier League. They fared with 3: 2 aggregate over Derby County in the semifinals, and at “Wembley” defeated Sheffield Wednesday 1:0 and have earned a place among the best in England.
But things are not at all promising for them because they do not have great finances and failed to sign new players in the summer. Their team is just not strong enough at the moment without any new players do not see how you can start participating in the Premier League with a positive result.
Leicester begins title defense as surely the team has slightly disappointed after the defeat of “Community Shield” by Manchester United last weekend. The champions lost 1:2 of “Reds”, but this result should not be given importance. In friendly matches, before the start of the season, Leicester beat Celtic on penalties and conceded two defeats from PSG (0:4) and Barcelona (2:4).
Certainly the team of Claudio Ranieri will want to win a good number of points before the start of the Champions League. The program of “The Foxes” will become quite thickened, and they do not have a large number of players. Leicester expect to start the season with confidence and win their visit to Hull City.
