Their most recent results highlight the fact that it has been a great time for the Leicester City backline. Leicester City have given the opposition little, with the total number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their last 6 matches standing at 4. That pattern isn’t assured to be continued into this game, though.
Ahead of this meeting, Leicester City are unbeaten in the league by Bristol City in their previous 2 games.
Bristol City will go into the game following on from a 4-1 Championship win to beat Plymouth Argyle in their last game.

Adam Randell (26') scored for Plymouth Argyle.
The numbers tell their own story, and Bristol City have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 6 goals in all. At the back, Bristol City could really do with shoring things up.
Ahead of this meeting, Bristol City are undefeated in their previous 4 away league matches.

Team News: Leicester City
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca to be concerned about from a near full-strength squad. Hamza Choudhury (Ill) misses out.
In all likelihood, The Foxes should make use of the 4-3-3 system for this game, handing starts to Mads Hermansen, Ricardo Pereira, Wout Faes, Jannik Vestergaard, Callum Doyle, Wilfred Ndidi, Harry Winks, K. Dewsbury-Hall, Abdul Issahaku, Jamie Vardy and Stephy Mavididi.
Team News: Bristol City
Thanks to a largely available group, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the Bristol City gaffer Nigel Pearson to be concerned with. Tommy Conway (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action.
It’s our belief that The Robins might play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup, choosing Max O'Leary, George Tanner, Rob Dickie, Kal Naismith, Cameron Pring, Matthew James, Joe Williams, Mark Sykes, Jason Knight, Samuel Bell and Nahki Wells.
We’re of the view that Leicester City look set to get the goals that they need when they come up against Bristol City, who could well find it tough scoring.
We’re therefore anticipating a 2-0 winning margin for Leicester City at the end of the match.
