Team Analysis & Game Prediction
After running an extraordinary match halfway through their season in the Premier League, Leicester seem to be getting an unpleasant reality.
Now the Foxes are third in the standings far behind Liverpool at the top of the standings by 19 points and now Carabao might be their only chance to get the title this season.
In the first leg of the semifinal this occurred at the King Power Stadium. Aston Villa took the lead in the match through a goal created in the 28th minute by Frédéric Guilbert. But the host managed to equalize precisely in the 75th minute through kicking Kelechi Iheanacho. The score ends in a draw until the game is over.
On the other hand, Aston Villa are now in the lower board zone, two points above the relegation zone and last season they were not present at the top.
Villa have not won in four of their last five matches overall.
As for the match later, it is predicted Leicester will play it out to get full points over the host Aston Villa. Noted Leicester have won a head to head match over Villa with a score of 1-4 when playing away. This note clearly sided with the Foxes’ troops.
In other records also mentioned that Leicester have won three of the previous four matches and they are unbeaten against Villa in the last five years.
From all records it can be concluded that Leicester are still on the line to record victory in the match later. But Leicester must be more careful in terms of defense. Because at the first meeting Villa managed to score a goal first, although finally it could be equated by Leicester. This is something to look out for if you want to get a chance to win the Carabao Cup.
