The match between Manchester City and Leicester puts the finishing touches this Monday, May 6, to the schedule of the thirty-seventh – penultimate round of the English Championship version 2018/2019. Set in the Ethirad Stadium in Manchester. The kickoff is scheduled for 16h (Brasília time).
The Premier League leads the top four for the 2019/2020 Champions League. Who finishes in the fifth and sixth places is entitled to participate in the next edition of the Europa League. The last three go to Second Division. Fulham and Huddersfield have already been demoted.
The game can even define the title of the Premier League. In that case, however, that will depend on the outcome of the Newcastle-Liverpool match, which was scheduled for Saturday, May 4. In case of defeat of the reds, the City will be able to reach the bicampeonato on Monday.That’s because he started the penultimate round of the English Premier League with 92 points (30 wins, two draws and four losses), one more than Liverpool. In this way, a success would raise its advantage to four points making the situation irreversible.Even if this combination does not happen, for many analysts the duel against Leicester is considered a decision. That’s because even with Liverpool victories in the last two games, City depends only on their results to lead the attack and this Monday’s showdown is the one with the highest risk of losing points. On the final day, the team will face Brighton, who is at his worst in the season.It also counts in favor of City that the club has the best campaign as principal of the Premier League. Of the 54 points he played for the tournament at Ethirad Stadium, he won 51 (17 wins and one loss) having scored 56 goals and suffered 12.For the meeting on Monday, coach Pep Guardiola has doubts about midfielder Kevin de Bruyne (18 matches in the 2018/2019 English League season, two goals) and Fernandinho (29 games, one goal), who are in injury recovery process.
When Leicester take to the pitch on Monday, the English TV broadcasting cameras are very likely to be targeted not to club athletes but to coach Brendan Rogers.Rogers has a history with Liverpool. For many, even a debt. It was with him that the Reds were up until the Jurgen Klopp era, closer to breaking the taboo of never having won a title since the creation of the Premier League. The battle was also with Manchester City. The club had a lead on the final stretch, but lost the lead by being beaten by Chelsea at Anfield Road in the match that was marked by the slip of Steven Gerrard, one of the club’s greatest idols, which provided a goal for the blues.It was also the beginning of Rogers’ decline in the club. After leaving Liverpool, he had to rebuild his career in Scotland. After their success at Celtic, Leicester reopened the doors of the Premier League. With him, Leicester, who was in the dead zone of the table of classification of the English Championship rose. He started the penultimate round in eighth place with 51 points (15 wins, six draws and 15 losses).As a visitor, it presents even better numbers. It is ranked seventh in the ranking that takes into account only the results of teams outside of their domains. Of the 54 points he played in column two, he took 25 home (seven wins, four draws and seven losses) having scored 27 goals and suffered the same number of goals.
