πŸ’΅ Leicester City vs Aston Villa: Match preview & best betting picks

Leicester City host a struggling Aston Villa in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on tonight with both sides looking to take a first positive step in their bids to secure a spot in Wembley's final.

The Foxes will be desperate to mark what has been a fine season so far with silverware, while a Wembley outing for Aston Villa could help to distract from their ongoing relegation battle in the Premier League.

📋 Team News

  • Long-term absentee Matty James remains sidelined for Leicester, while there ​are concerns about the availability of Wes Morgan, who is struggling with a groin injury. ​
  • For Villa, first-choice goalkeepers Tom Heaton and Jed Steer are both injured, so Orjan Nyland will deputize for ​Villa. Striker Wesley is out for the season with a knee injury while John McGinn is also set for a significant spell in the stands.

🔮 Predicted Lineups

  • Leicester City: Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi, Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy​.
  • Aston Villa: Nyland; Guilbert, Konsa, Mings, Taylor; Luiz, Nakamba, Hourihane; Trezeguet, Kodjia, Grealish.

📊 The key stats

  • Aston Villa has scored 16 goals in the League Cup this season, six more than any other team.
  • Aston Villa has won their last four League Cup matches, last winning five in a row back in October 1994.
  • Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has progressed from his last 30 domestic cup ties with Liverpool, Celtic, and Leicester – the last team to beat Rodgers was Aston Villa in the FA Cup semi-final in 2014/15, when he was Liverpool manager.
