Our tipster thinks that there will be goals at both ends when Nuno Espirito Santo's side meet Claude Puel's charges at Molineux on Saturday afternoon

Another weekend of Premier League action begins at Molineux when Wolves play host to Leicester City on Saturday lunchtime.

Both sides were beaten last time out as Leicester lost to Southampton at the King Power Stadium, while Manchester City beat Wolves 3-0 on Monday night.

With just two points separating the sides ahead of kick-off, this promises to be a fiercely competitive clash.

Latest odds

Wolves have impressed many observers this season, but their recent home record is disappointing. Indeed, Nuno Espirito Santo's side have won just two of their last seven home matches in this competition.

Nevertheless, Wolves are bet365's 6/5 (2.20) favourites to take all three points from this one.

Leicester have lost just one of their last six league games on the road and are available at 9/4 (3.25) to win against Wolves. The odds compilers offer 23/10 (3.30) that this match ends all square.

Team news

Willy Boly will miss out as he serves a suspension following his red card on Monday. Leander Dendocker could replace the big French defender at the heart of the home defence.

Jonny Evans and Daniel Amartey remain out for the Foxes, who have no fresh injury concerns.

A low-scoring clash?

There have been more than two goals scored in just two of Wolves' last 10 home league matches. Furthermore, there have been goals at both ends in just two of the last nine league matches at this venue.

As such, bet365 offer just 8/15 (1.53) that there are fewer than three goals here. The same firm go 7/10 (1.70) that either side draws a blank at Molineux.

Prediction

There could be value, though, in backing goals when these two teams lock horns.

The Foxes have found the net in six of their last seven matches whilst Wolves have managed just one clean sheet in their last 15 fixtures in all competitions.

That is a record that will give Puel’s side hope of getting amongst the goals when they visit Molineux and as such, the 21/20 (2.05) quote from bet365 for both teams to score on Saturday could represent real value for punters.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
