The two teams involved have been less busy since the end of last season campaign, Oxford United have been involved in just one pre-season club friendly against a against a National League side Solihull Moor at Damson Park, the game ended in a 1-1 draw after an entertaining 90 minutes, now the League One team hopes to grab a win against the Premier League Champions to boost their morale ahead of the new season.

Leicester City have been totally idle since the end of last season campaign, they haven’t been involved in any pre-season activity making this their first game since the end of 2015/2016 campaign, they also face the problem huge transfer activity as they need to replace players who have switched to other clubs with likes of Kante already moved to Chelsea and many other players are keen to follow suit.
