Man City vs Leicester performance analysis
Despite being behind Arsenal in the race to win the Premier League, Man City is still showing the level of a team that has regularly won the Premier League in recent years. They just made a strong impression when they crushed Bayern Munich 3-0 in the quarter-finals of the Champions League 2022/23. This is Man City’s 9th victory in all competitions, a remarkable achievement.
If Man City is winning like splitting bamboo, Leicester will make the fans constantly disappointed. This team has just lost 3 matches in a row and in the last 9 matches they have to receive 8 defeats, the remaining match is a draw. With such a bad record, it is not surprising that Leicester are ranked at the bottom of the table. They have 25 points and only 2 more points than the bottom team Southampton, equivalent to 2 draws.
In the first leg, Leicester, despite having the home advantage, still lost to Man City with a minimum score.

Particularly for the last 5 encounters with the Foxes, they won 4 and lost only 1 match.
