Preview Leicester vs Swansea 30.01.2024
On Tuesday at 19:45, the leader in the Championship and the main favorite for promotion to the Premier League, Leicester, will play at home against Swansea. The two teams are facing each other in the return match this season, after the round match was played in the 12th round, at Swansea's ground, where Leicester won 3-1, managing to come back from the score of 1 -0 for Swansea, the team that had first opened the scoring in the 20th minute.
Leicester have managed to organize themselves very well after being relegated to the second division, keeping some key players in the lead with veteran Jamie Vardie, the 37-year-old striker scoring six goals so far despite being injured all of December and missing three matches from the new year. Leicester occupies the first place in the Championship with 66 points, seven points ahead of the 2nd place occupied by Ipswich. Also, Leicester showed its strength in the championship, having the best attack in the league with 56 goals scored, but also the best defense with only 22 goals conceded.
Swansea is in the 5th consecutive season in the second league and is currently unable to come up with a strategy that would allow them to fight for a return to the Premier League. At this moment, Swansea is in 16th place in the ranking with 33 points, being tied with four other teams and is closer to the relegation zone than to the top places. Swansea has a balanced report regarding both the matches played at home and those played away, the difference between points accumulated at home and away being only one point. Swansea does not have a classic scorer, the most prolific players being the forwards Jerry Yates and Jamal Lowe, both having scored six goals each.
