However, the Foxes have been unable to keep a single clean sheet in the previous five competitive games at King Power Stadium.

Four of the previous five H2Hs between these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Leicester City found the back of the net ten times in the previous five fixtures in the EFL Championship. On the other hand, Bristol City have also rattled the net eight times in the same duration. Additionally, both teams have conceded goals in at least four of their previous matches in the league. Hence, we predict this game to be Over 2.5 Goals.

In light of the current scenario, we predict a 2-1 lead for Leicester before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
