Leicester City vs Manchester City Match Preview
Leicester City have a tough task in the League Cup quarter-final when they host Manchester City. This Leicester City vs Manchester City League Cup (Carabo Cup) fixture will be played at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday, December 19, so check our match preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
Leicester had a good run of four consecutive victories in the Premier League before they were thumped at home in the weekend 30 by the relegation threatened Crystal Palace. That dampens the mood for the hosts as they get ready to host the best side in England, if not Europe, on current form. On any other day against any other opposition, Leicester would have fancied a win and moving to the League Cup semi-final but will be wary of their chances now. The Foxes will hope for a weakened Manchester City but will still be underdogs for this Leicester City vs Manchester City League Cup fixture. However, Leicester have already dumped a strong Liverpool out of the League Cup and can’t be taken lightly.
Manchester City look so good, this season, that they don’t look like drawing a match – let alone losing one. The last weekend win against Manchester United gave them a lot of boost, but the big victory against Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 this weekend gives them the real edge. They are now at 16 wins in a row in the Premier League and with no other top-tier club until mid-January, their Premier League title looks set to be wrapped up sooner than later. However, Pep Guardiola would still want to rotate his squad considering the December festive season congestion of fixtures. But then, he can assure that it would still be a very competitive one considering the depth of City’s squad. For the record, City did lose once this season, when they heavily rotated their side in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk.

If one has to pick a side to win this match, it would be Manchester City hands down. We believe that there would be action at both ends and goals at both ends, despite heavy rotation from the visitors. City have conceded in five of their last seven away trips and that should continue in this Leicester City vs Manchester City fixture.
