Stockport County vs Leicester
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Tuesday, 23 August 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Edgeley Park.
Not only are Leicester a part of the English top flight but they were also champions of the Premier League just 5 years before. Meanwhile Stockport County were part of the 5th tier of English football hierarchy the previous season.
As of now they are part of the League Two, but they are finding it really hard to deliver good performances against experienced teams in this competition. In fact, disregarding a single fixture they have had a 100 percentage losing record so far.
They are letting in goals in huge numbers and all of this has put the team under extreme pressure.
Meanwhile, the Foxes have not had a dream start to their current Premier League campaign. They are yet to get into full flow, and as a result they will be eager to deliver a huge confidence-boosting win.
And it seems that they have a perfect opportunity coming up in this regard. Against a team from the lower divisions, they are easily the favourites to register a win. Moreover, they have a dominant head-to-head record against this rival over the past seasons as well.
Likely anticipate a victory for Leicester.
