Tip Leicester - Aston Villa

Prediction published on January 6, 2020 at 4:11 AM

Leicester City will play host to Aston Villa in the first leg of the two sides’ semi final of the League Cup on Wednesday 8th January. Going to this game, Leicester saw off Everton on post match penalties in the last round, as Aston Villa whipped Liverpool 5-0. While Leicester needed penalties to secure passage to the semis after conceding late to draw 2-2 with Everton, Aston Villa faced a weakened Liverpool team and took full advantage. Leicester head to this game on the back of three straight wins, the most recent a 2-0 win over Wigan in the FA Cup. They have done well in the season, and are placed second on the Premier League table, with 45 points. With 11 wins, seven clean sheets and just two losses in their last 15 matches, they will feel mentally strong in this game. Leicester have scored two or more goals in 12 of their last 15 matches and nine of their last 15 matches have produced over 2.5 goals. They have only failed to score in one of the last 15 matches, while they have conceded two or more in just three of the last 15 matches. They have eight wins and one loss in 11 matches at home and while they haven’t met a lot with Aston Villa lately, they have beaten the visitors in three of the last five meetings. Leicester have two losses in the last 10 League Cup matches, both have come on post match penalties. Six of the 10 League Cup matches have been decided by post match penalties.

Aston Villa, on their part, have not enjoyed the season as much as Leicester. Just promoted to the Premier League, they are 17th with 21 points, and they will be hoping the League Cup offers better comfort. They have five wins, nine losses and just three clean sheets in their last 15 matches. They have scored in 12 of 15 matches but scored two or more in just five of the 15 matches. Villa have conceded two or more in 10 of their last 15 matches and 12 of their last 15 matches have produced over 2.5 goals. Away from home, they have one win and six losses in the last eight. They have no clean sheet in their last 14 away matches and have conceded two or more goals in nine of the 14 away matches. Villa have no win in their last three meetings with Leicester.

They have also conceded two or more in 10 of the last 14 away matches. Villa have however, scored in 12 of the last 15 matches and though Leicester will be keen on giving all in the first leg, we will give Villa a shot here as well. A 3-1 win for Leicester City is good pick here.
