Date: 27.1.18

Time: 12.30

Venue: ABAX Stadium 

Channel: BT Sport

Leicester travel to another lower league opposition in the fourth round of the FA Cup after successfully beating Fleetwood in a replay last time out. Puel’s men were rather underwhelming in their approach in the first game of that tie and face a tough task here away to Peterborough who ended up cruising past Championship high-flyers Aston Villa. Recent history between these two teams, predominantly in the championship, favours Peterborough who have only lost one of the last four. They have also only failed tos core once against Leicester at home, which provides a very encouraging statistic for Grant McCann’s men.

Both teams to score seems a good bet here as Leicester often concede but score plenty. Depending on the Leicester eleven, Peterborough seem great value at 9/2 but this is obviously dependant on the eleven Puel puts out. Therefore, Leicester to concede at 1/2 seems very generous. Hopefully this is a proper cup tie and a good game of football with lots of goals. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 13/8.
