Leicester v Man City League Cup Betting Preview
Venue: King Power Stadium
Channel: Sky Sports Main Event
Leicester face another huge test as the most in-form team in the world travel to the Midlands for a quarter-final cup tie. City may resort to dropping a few of their star men, after an impressive performance against Spurs on Saturday. Leicester have nothing to lose with all the pressure on Guardiola’s men to continue their winning mentality, although their last game outside of the premier league resulted in defeat in Ukraine, to Shakhtar Donetsk.
This quarter-final tie screams goals to me, with recent games here seeing scorlines such as 4-2 to the home side, last season. Over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/7 with bet365. Recent form and head to head in this one shows no favouring to either side, with both sides winning two and a draw in the last 5 games. I expect City’s free scoring nature to get the better of The Foxes here, especially considering their 3-0 home demolition by Palace at the weekend.
City may rest some of their star men like Silva, Aguero and De Bruyne.
Potential Leicester Starting XI: Schmeichel, Simpson, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell, Iborra, King, Mahrez, Gray, Okazaki, Vardy
Potential Man City StartingXI: Bravo, Danilo, Zinchenko, Mangala, Otamendi, Delph, Toure, Bernardo Silva, Sterling, Sane, Jesus
