Aston Villa vs Leicester City Betting Tips
It seems that both Aston Villa and Leicester City are much more focused on the Premier League than on the cup. And the fact that they need to play the rematch certainly doesn’t make them happy. They need to play an additional game in Carabao Cup because their previous match ended 1:1.
The first match was played at King Power Stadium in Leicester and despite the fact that the home team had the ball in their possession for most of the time, Aston Villa grabbed themselves a draw. In fact, the Villans had a lead for most of the match, which came after they turned their only shot on goal into an actual goal.
It’s fair to say that the Foxes were unlucky in that game not to get a win. This is why they’re favorites this time, even they are playing an away game. They definitely have the manpower to beat Aston Villa in Birmingham, which is what they showed in the Premier League in December when they won by 4:1.
Another reason why Leicester City are the favorite here is that their form seems to be improving after a slight crisis. The problems started with the Carabao Cup draw with Aston Villa, followed by two Premier League defeats, namely against Southampton and Burnley.
But, the Foxes are back in shape, having won their previous games, one in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup. What’s got to worry them slightly is that they have a tough schedule ahead, so maybe their manager will have to consider saving some of his key men for those duels.
Nevertheless, even with a makeshift selection, Leicester City look capable of beating Aston Villa, especially knowing that this team is struggling with injuries. Several of their key players will not feature in this game for that reason.
