Rotherham vs Leicester: top free betting tips

Rotherham United are in search of their first victory of EFL Championship 2023/24 and have another difficult challenge to face Leicester City in the next fixture. The match will be played at Aesseal New York Stadium on Saturday, 26 August. The Foxes enter this game after recording a winning momentum at the start of the English second division.

Match result prediction: Leicester to win

Rotherham United have won only one of the last four games that came out in the EFL Cup against Morecambe. On the other hand, Leicester City has won the previous four consecutive matches in the Championship and EFL Cup. The Foxes have also been dominant in the recent H2Hs against the Millers by winning three of the last four meetings, ending one in a draw. Therefore, we back Leicester to have an easy victory in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Despite a lack of winning runs, Rotherham United have found the back of the net in each of the previous four matches. But the Millers couldn’t keep a single clean sheet in that course. On the other hand, Leicester City have also conceded goals in two of the three opening games in EFL Championship. Additionally, all of the previous four H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with BTTS outcomes. Therefore, we can expect goals from both ends of the field in this game.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Leicester

Leicester City have rattled the net more than once in three of the previous four matches in the Championship and EFL Cup. Meanwhile, Rotherham United scored just one goal in three games during the same course. The Millers have also conceded two or more goals in each of the three league outings so far. Additionally, Rotherham notched just one goal in three of the recent four H2Hs against the Foxes, conceding multiple goals in each game. Therefore, we believe to see a 1-2 margin for Leicester City at the end of the ninety minutes in this game.
