At this stage of the season there is little importance riding on this game. Northampton area out of the top-four picture.

That is because their form has nosedived into a four-match losing streak at the moment and are just fumbling along to the end of the season.

It has been a long, hard and disappointing campaign from Leicester as well who would have been in massive relegation trouble had Saracens not been hit with their points-deduction.

Leicester Preview – Can Leicester move up?

The Tigers are second from bottom in the league at the moment, three points behind Worcester, the team immediately above them.

So they are just playing for a bit of pride at the moment and nothing else, but they are struggling. Big time.

It is a three-match losing streak that they are currently on and Leicester have conceded at least 31 points in each of their last three league games.

In midweek they had a tough match on their hands away at Wasps and the Tigers were hammered 54-7.

However, they have only suffered two losses at Welford Road in 2020 in the Premiership, those losses happening against Bath and Sale recently.

The Tigers are the second-lowest scoring team in the Premiership at the moment and only two teams have conceded more points than they have done.

Our betting prediction:
Saints 1-10 winning margin

(odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September)


Leceister are the 6/4 underdogs for this fixture on Sunday* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September).

Does the recent head to head form against the Saints offer Leicester much of a chance in this one?

Not really byte case they have lost four of their last five fixtures against Northampton and the one win that Leicester took in that sequence was away from home.


Northampton Saints Preview – Saints struggling as well

It has been a really poor run of form from the Saints lately, who are struggling as an attacking unit.

They have lost their last four on the bounce and in midweek were hammered on a visit to Bristol, going down 40-17.

The Saints have conceded at least 22 points in each of their last three Premiership games.

But in none of their last four games have they managed to reach at least 20 points in a single fixture.

So there has been a shortfall from them, but the Saints are the 4/7 odds-on favourites to collect the win on Sunday* (odds taken 04:19 GMT, Saturday, 12th September).

That probably says more about Leicester’s struggles than anything.

It has been back to back away losses for Northampton in the Premiership, but the last time that they did lose three in a row was in March 2018.

They do have a bit of away head to head form in fixtures at Welford Road against Leicester, so that should put them in the frame.
