    Can the Championship’s best team keep scoring goals against Sheffield Wednesday in round 32?

    Sheffield Wednesday will make the trip to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night for a Championship midweek clash. Wednesday are staring up the table, with dreams of moving away from the relegation zone.

    However, the Owls are mired in the bottom three, stuck in 23rd place, with 26 points. Five points separate Wednesday from safety ahead of their midweek trip to Leicester.

    The teams’ match played earlier this season at Hillsborough was their first meeting since 2014. There aren’t many trends between the two clubs.

    The match played at Hillsborough in November ended in a 1-1 draw. Leicester’s Abdul Fatawu scored in the 23rd minute to give the team the lead. But Jeff Hendrick scored the equaliser for Wednesday in the 92nd minute.

    Leicester dominated the match in possession with 68% but were outshot by Wednesday by a count of 15-12. The Foxes are second in possession stats in the Championship, with 60.3% per game. Only Southampton have a better possession-per-game stat.

    Wednesday are top of the Championship’s aggression stats for having the most yellow and red cards. The Owls have been yellow carded 76 times and red carded on three occasions.

    Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho will miss the match due to playing at the African Cup of Nations. Iheanacho only has five goals for the team this season. Leicester are led in goal scoring by Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Stehpy Mavididi, with 10 goals apiece.

    Indeed Dewsbury-Hall has been Leicester’s most important player. He also has 10 assists this season. The midfielder drew considerable interest from Premier League clubs during the January transfer window.

    While Leicester are the Championship’s top scorers, Sheffield Wednesday are last in goals scored this season. The Owls scored a mere 24 goals in 31 games. They have allowed 50 goals to opponents, which is the fourth-most in the division.

    Wednesday manager Danny Rohl could be without forward Josh Windass due to a muscle injury. Callum Paterson could miss the game due to a concussion. Josh Buckley and Dominic Iorfa are also doubts to make the team.

    Can Leicester City get another win in the Championship? According to or AI score prediction, Leicester should win 3-0, as they continue to push toward a Championship title.
