Leicester City vs Aston Villa Match Preview

freesupertips.com, 6 January 2020, 06:04

Leicester City vs Aston Villa predictions for Wednesday's Carabao Cup Semi Final first leg at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes are favourites to establish a lead against Villa this week. Read on for all our free Carabao Cup predictions and betting tips.

Reason For Leicester City vs Aston Villa Predictions

Leicester beat Aston Villa 4-1 at Villa Park in a Premier League tussle earlier in the season.

Villa were dumped out of the FA Cup in confidence draining circumstances at Fulham last weekend.

Leicester won eight of their 11 competitive home fixtures this season.

Villa are without a number of key players for Wednesday’s game.

Leicester hitting the groove again

Leicester City host Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium this week, hoping to establish a Carabao Cup Semi Final first leg lead healthy enough to make their second leg at the end of the month a formality.

After a run of three wins on the spin, spirits in the Leicester camp will be high ahead of Wednesday's contest, and the Foxes successive Premier League setbacks against Man City and Liverpool at the end of last year are already firmly in the rear-view mirror.

Leicester's 0-4 reverse at home to a rampant Liverpool on Boxing Day remains their only loss at the King Power Stadium so far this season, and City's record of eight wins on their own patch from 11 overall this term shines a light on how difficult a task Villa face on Wednesday.

The Villains job is made doubly hard by the importance Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has placed on the Carabao Cup his season, and the Foxes are expected to make minimal changes to their first choice XI for Wednesday's first leg.

Villa’s confidence at a low ebb

Villa boss Dean Smith's first order of business will be to rally his players after the club's disappointing 2-1 FA Cup third round defeat at Championship outfit Fulham at the weekend.

The Villains were roundly outplayed by their hosts at Craven Cottage, and the result extended Villa's horrible away run that now reads just one win, one draw and six defeats from eight matches.

Villa, who are still searching for their first away clean sheet of any description and in any competition this season, shipped 2.125 goals per 90 minutes across their last eight fixtures on the road, and that porous backline should struggle badly again to contain a talented Leicester frontline this week.

Shorn of the services of first choice stopper Tom Heaton, starting left back Matt Targett, midfield mainstay John McGinn and centre-forward Wesley, Villa lack the personnel to overcome their horrible away form this week, and we're tipping Leicester to take full advantage.

Goals on offer for Leicester

Leicester stuck four goals past a full-strength Villains when the sides clashed in a one-sided Premier League clash at Villa Park in early December, and we think there are goals on offer for the Foxes in Wednesday's Carabao Cup rematch.

The Foxes have already scored three or more goals in seven separate games since the summer, and with Villa's personnel and defensive problems major factors, we think Leicester are priced generously in the over 2.5 team goals market for Wednesday.

Our correct score prediction of 3-1 to Leicester tips the visitors to net a consolation goal however. Despite their underwhelming overall results, Villa managed to get on the scoresheet in 12 of their last 14 matches, and we're backing their goal-getting knack to continue this week.
