Wolves vs Leicester City
English League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 25 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
The League Cup draw has joined two Premier League sides Wolves and Leicester City to battle it out for a place in the fourth round of the competition on Tuesday evening at Molineux. Both outfits will come into it high on confidence after weekend showings.
The hosts held the likes of Manchester United to a 1-1 draw away at Old Trafford, while the Foxes came back from a goal down to see off the struggling Huddersfield Town 3-1 at King Power.
It was a magnificent display from Leicester’s attacking line-up as Kelechi Iheanaho and Jamie Vardy cooperated perfectly in the final third. They contributed with a goal and an assist each, while the third goal came from this summer’s acquisition James Maddison through a beautifully-taken free-kick.
Wolves vs Leicester City: Head-to-head
- The two sides have already played each other this season.
- It’s Leicester City who came on top 2-0 at King Power just more than a month ago.
- They last met in an official affair back in January 2013 when they were battling it out in the second tier of the English football.
- Overall, the Foxes lead the head to head tie by five wins ahead of 69th affair with Wolves.
- Four of last six H2H games saw the Under 2.5 goals FT option “come in”.
Wolves vs Leicester City: Prediction
Wolverhampton have really done well to accommodate to the elite class challenges so far in the season. They come into this undefeated in five across competitions mainly thanks to the rock-solid defensive line. The team led by Nuno Espirito Santo allowed just two goals in last five games even though they played the likes of both Man City and Man Utd in the process.
The visitors have had somewhat of a roller-coaster ride so far. They did move into the top half with the mentioned 3-1 victory over the Terriers, but the manager Claude Puel certainly has reasons to be worried with his men’s defensive performances.
Wolves will definitely be massively encouraged with the 1-1 draw to Man United at Old Trafford and we see the value in backing them to qualify at the odds of 1.66. They are yet to suffer a defeat at Molineux (draws to Everton and Manchester City and a win over Burnley) this season. Braver tipsters can try with the clear home win at 2.25.
