Aston Villa vs Leicester – Carabao Cup :This is the 2nd of the League Cup semi-finals between Aston Villa and Leicester
Aston Villa vs Leicester –After a draw at the King Power Stadium by 1-1. Aston Villa is without Davis, Heaton, McGinn, Steer and Wesley for this encounter, while Leicester are only missing Amartey.
The two sides have the big objective of reaching the final where they will probably be facing Manchester City that is fighting against Manchester Utd for that presence in the final and they already have a clear advantage since they’ve gotten a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford.
Manchester City are clear favourites to lift this trophy, but Guardiola’s team is far from showing the consistency of previous years this season and both Villa and Leicester know they can take advantage of a bad day from the Citizens and accomplish something great.
The objective of these two teams this year are very different.
Leicester is fighting for a spot in the Champions League while Villa is fighting to avoid relegation.
Tonight, however they are both fighting for the same objective, which is getting a victory here, and I expect this match to be very balanced.
In the league, Villa have already left the relegation zone after 2 victories and 1 draw on the last 4 matches and they are improving each day.
The team comes into this match probably in the best stage of the season and despite sitting in 16th place of the league table, they are a dangerous team.
Playing at home, they’ve gotten 17 of the 25 points conquered so far in the league and that shows they do much better when playing in front of their own fans.
Leicester is in 3rd place, already having 8 more points conquered than the 4th place Chelsea and 14 more points than Manchester Utd that is already out of the Champions League’s spots.
A presence on the next edition of the Champions League is more than expected and likely and the 3-points difference they have behind City actually make it seem possible for them to reach the 2nd place, which would crown a spectacular season.
Playing away from home, Leicester also have the 3rd best record in the league, only losing to Liverpool and City, and I believe they will score on this encounter.
My bet on this match will be “Over 2.5 Goals”.
Both teams are in conditions to score goals because on one hand we have a Villa side that is in a good moment of form and on the other side we have a Leicester that generally scores goals, be it at home or away from home.
The draw on the first leg of this semi-final had 24 goal attempts, 21 of them for Leicester and despite not having been a match with a lot of goals, it could have had a lot more.
