      To say it’s been a surprisingly successful Christmas period for Leicester this season would be a dramatic understatement. The Foxes looked certain to drop points as they faced off with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Manchester City at the King Power Stadium either side of Christmas Day, but Claude Puel guided them to unlikely victories in both matches.

      6 points from 2 games against 2 of the best teams in the top flight will have seen confidence soar at the King Power Stadium, and it was more than welcome after they failed to win 3 consecutive matches earlier in the month. Now, they find themselves up in 7th position and only 4 points adrift of Manchester United in 6th.

      Saturday will be an all together different challenge for this side though. Cardiff aren’t going to be pressing forward anywhere near as much as Manchester City and Chelsea were, but that should afford The Foxes the chance to show their attacking credentials even more. Jamie Vardy is obviously the most notorious of attacking threats, and with 6 goals in his 15 appearances this season we fancy his chances here, hence us backing him as our anytime goalscorer prediction.

      Cardiff came into this season as the prime candidates for relegation from the top flight, and while they are still expected to struggle they have actually found a reasonable footing in recent weeks. They picked up a point away to Crystal Palace on Boxing Day and have actually won 3 of their last 8 Premier League outings. This puts them in a precarious 17th position, but with a 3 point cushion on the drop zone.

      However, The Bluebirds find points very hard to come by on the road. In fact, all 4 of their Premier League wins this season have come at the Cardiff City Stadium, and away from home they have lost 7 of their 9 matches.

      We’re expecting the confident Leicester to take the points on Saturday, and we think it could be a comfortable victory. Cardiff have lost by more than a single goal in 4 of their away games this season and they face a home side who have beaten Wolves, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Watford by more than a single goal this season, so we’re backing Leicester -1.0 Asian Handicap along with a 2-0 correct score predictions.
