Tuesday night at 19:45, Wolverhampton receives Leicester’s replica in the League Cup after both bands have achieved positive results in the recently completed Premier League round. Nuno Espirito Santo’s “Wolves” start their favorite in the home dispute.
The two bands have already met this season in the championship when Leicester won 2-0 at the start of the championship. But it was a lucky success for Claude Puel’s team: “the wolves” had a bar in the first minutes of play, through Moutinho, and the game was dominated by some guest. On the return of the first league, Wolves did not play badly and then confirmed the following results: 1-1 with Manchester City and 1-1 at Manchester United in the recently completed round. Wolves has a fluid cash game in a 3-4-3 tactical system that opens the game in strips. Maybe that’s why Wolverhampton is the second team in England as a number of corner kicks executed, and we will take advantage of this statistics on Tuesday!
Leicester could rest several important titles.
Leicester had a lot of emotion last round with Huddersfield after the “terriers” opened the score on the fox terrain. But Leicester equaled pretty fast in the first half and ended up imposing 3-1 after a good match made by Vardy, Gray and Iheanacho. The guests have a changed face when playing away and they do not really impress on foreign ground, where they do not manage to dominate opponents. It seems that home matches are best for Leicester, and Wolverhampton should have the initiative in this balanced game.
There are no big bothering problems in the two camps, but Wolves’ Portuguese manager has already announced he will treat the League Cup with Leicester seriously. During this time, Puel has a slightly more limited batch and will try to provide the chances of asserting reserves. Most likely, Maddison and Vardy will sit on the bench at this duel! In 3 of the last 4 matches we scored both teams, but this time we can see a darker duel with fewer chances on the white-blue side. Wolverhampton is unbeaten by 6 matches and wants to continue the positive series on his own!
PREDICTION: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.78
