Ipswich vs. Leicester live match 26 December 2023


2 days ago — Ipswich Town have only won one of their last 5 games against Leicester City; C. Chaplin has scored in 35% of Championship games this season ...


The hosts have just one win in their last seven meetings against the visitors, failing to score twice in that period. Interestingly, Ipswich Town have lost just twice in their last 10 games on Boxing Day. Leicester City have lost 42 times on Boxing Day across all league competitions. Both teams have the joint-best attacking record in the Championship, scoring 47 times in 23 games. The visitors also have the best defensive record in the competition, conceding 16 goals, half the number of the goals shipped in by Ipswich. As for the midfield unit, Massimo Luongo and captain Samy Morsy will pair up in the double pivot. The duo will look to keep things tight in the middle of the park while providing the forward thrust to link up with the attack. Conor Chaplin should reprise the no. 10 role, although he will often arrive late in the box to come at the end of the opportunities. Omari Hutchinson and Nathan Broadhead should be the two wide attackers, with George Hirst spearheading the Ipswich Town attack against Leicester City. Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Hladky; Clarke, Woolfenden, Burgess, Davis; Morsy, Luongo; Hutchinson, Chaplin, Broadhead; Hirst Leicester City Unlike his counterpart in the Ipswich Town dugout, Enzo Maresca has a few pressing issues to deal with ahead of the trip to Portman Road. Speaking of Leicester City, the Foxes are the resounding favourites to return to the Premier League. Enzo Maresca has hit the ground running at the King Power Stadium, hitting the ground running this term. The visitors are steamrolling the Championship and should seal an automatic promotion berth. The most recent clash featuring Ipswich Town and Leicester City came in 2014, with the Foxes cruising to a 3-0 win. The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the encounter ahead of the latest meeting between the two sides. Team News & Tactics Ipswich Town Kieran McKenna does not have any new injury concerns hampering his preparations ahead of his side’s latest fixture. Against Leicester City on Tuesday, the Ipswich Town manager will have a full-strength squad. Vaclav Hladky should take his spot between the sticks, with Ipswich Town lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in front of him. The backline will likely feature Harry Clarke, Luke Woolfenden, Cameron Burgess, and Leif Davis, although Brandon Williams has also made a case for a place in the team. They failed to score for just the second time this season and will look to return to goalscoring ways. The visitors made it five wins on the trot on Saturday, registering a 3-0 win over Rotherham United. Patson Daka bagged a five-minute brace in the second half and Cesare Casadei tripled the Foxes' lead in the 72nd minute. The visitors have opened up a six-point lead over the hosts and a win in this Boxing Day clash will help them sit atop the table with a comfortable nine-point cushion. Ipswich Town vs Leicester City Head-to-Head and Key Numbers The two teams have locked horns 70 times in all competitions since 1961. They have contested these games closely, with a narrow 27-26 lead in wins and 17 games ending in draws. They last met in the 2013-14 season of the EFL Championship, with Leicester securing a league double with an aggregate score of 5-1. Meanwhile, Kelechi Iheanacho will be an option on the bench. Mads Hermansen is an automatic pick between the sticks, with Leicester City lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in front of him. Ricardo Pereira, Wout Faes, Jannik Vestergaard, and James Justin should protect the goalkeeper. Finally, the midfield unit will likely feature Harry Winks and Wilfred Ndidi. Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Hermansen; Pereira, Faes, Vestergaard, Justin; Winks, Ndidi; Fatawu, Dewsbury-Hall, Mavididi; Daka Key Stats Ipswich Town and Leicester City have previously met 70 times in all competitions since 1961. The Blues have a slightly better head-to-head record with 27 wins (D17 L26). Ipswich Town vs Leicester City Prediction The Tractor Boys are winless in their last two league games and will look to return to winning ways in this match. They are unbeaten in their last nine home games in the Championship, recording eight wins. They have scored at least three goals in six games in that period and are expected to enjoy another prolific outing. Lee Evans is a long-term absentee for the hosts while Kieran McKenna is also expected to be without the services of Janoi Donacien, who is struggling with a groin issue. The Foxes head into the match on a five-game winning run in the Championship, scoring 15 goals in these games. They have suffered just one defeat in away games in the league this term and will look to leave a good account of themselves in this match. The Zambian international has not scored bags of goals this season either. But he heads into Tuesday’s fixture on the back of scoring a match-winning brace, his first first league double since moving to England. So, Daka will be high on confidence, hoping to make his mark again at Portman Road. Prediction Ipswich Town 1-2 Leicester City With the two best teams in the EFL Championship locking horns on Tuesday, fireworks should be on the cards. Ipswich Town’s home record is top-notch, but they will take on the best travellers in the EFL Championship, with Leicester City having the best tally on the road. The Leicester City manager will be without four first-team players on Tuesday. Jamie Vardy is the most notable absentee, with the Englishman recovering from a knock. The veteran striker accompanies Kasey McAteer (unspecified), Callum Doyle (knee), and Marc Albrighton (knee) on the sidelines. Patson Daka should spearhead the Leicester City attack against Ipswich Town in Vardy’s continued absence. Stephy Mavididi, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, and Abdul Fatawu Isahaku should support the Zambian striker in the final third.

The 2023/24 EFL Championship season will continue with the traditional Boxing Day fixture. The action on Tuesday will begin with the game between Preston North End and Leeds United while ending at Portman Road, where Ipswich Town will host the table-topping Leicester City.

Player to Watch Patson Daka Embed from Getty Images It was not long ago that Patson Daka was a prolific customer in the final third while representing Red Bull Salzburg, often scoring goals at will. But his stock has plummeted since arriving in England, as he has failed to stamp his authority for Leicester City.
