Luton vs Leicester
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Tuesday, 24 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road (Luton).
Luton pulled off a comfortable 3-0 victory over Cardiff in the previous round that too on the road. However, the hosts have been hit by a sharp dip in form and are currently sporting a very disheartening two-game losing streak under their belt, the last of which saw them lose to Hull after the latter slotted three unanswered goals into the back of the net.
Leicester have tasted defeat just once in their last seven games across various competitions and will be making the trip to Kenilworth Road on the back of a very impressive 2-1 win over Tottenham at home, back in the Premier League.
Although they managed to get the better of Newcastle in the previous round, only on penalties, the ninety minutes is more than likely to be enough for the Foxes to pick up the win in this one.
Luton vs Leicester Head to head (h2h)

- Only one of their past four fixtures have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.
Luton vs Leicester Prediction
Graeme Jones’s men have not been able to ensure a consistent winning run of form in their clashes on home soil and have won just half of their last four games here. Additionally, it is worth mentioning that the hosts have only just earned promotion to the second tier and are by no means ready to take down a side like Leicester who have been part of the top flight for quite some time now.
Given that the Foxes have also admitted defeat just once in their last three outings, Luton’s chances of taking down the visitors are certainly looking bleak.
Furthermore, the hosts lost without finding the back of the net in their most recent matchup here. Taking into account that the visitors have opened the scoring in two of their last three trips on the road, by all means, count on Leicester to draw first blood on Tuesday.
