Match Betting (1x2)

There hasn’t been much between these teams in the Premier League table this season, with Manchester City having been below par when set against their outstanding achievements of last season and they are trailing Liverpool by twenty-five points at the time of writing.

On the flip side, Leicester City have punched above their weight and look virtually certain to land a place in next season’s Champions League despite a dip in form which has seen them struggle to land the victories which came so easily in the early parts of the season.

Leicester are ten points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham right now and they are 17/5 with Unibet to move a step closer to landing that precious top four berth by claiming three points against a Manchester City team who might be distracted by the prospect of facing Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola’s side head to the Bernabeu on Wednesday although they will want to go there feeling confident and Ladbrokes make them the 8/11 favourites to come away from the King Power Stadium with a victory.

City have only won eight of their thirteen matches on the road and have experienced defeat four times away from the Etihad, with Liverpool, Norwich, Tottenham and Wolves all beating them this season.

The draw is trading at 3/1 with Paddy Power and wouldn’t be regarded as a bad outcome for either team, especially Brendan Rodgers’ side who took the lead in the reverse fixture before losing the game.

Asian Handicap

Given that Manchester City had to play a rearranged fixture on the previous Wednesday and have that crucial clash against Real Madrid the following week, it’s possible that Guardiola will play a reserve team for this match.

Therefore, it could be worth looking at ways to get with the home team on the Asian Handicap market and Unibet have 16/25 about Leicester with a +1 goal handicap start. It means that you would get money back if the Midlands side lose by a single goal although a profit would be on the cards if the game was either drawn or resulted in a home victory.

If Guardiola does field a strong team, we have previously seen Manchester City blow away teams even those as good as Leicester and you can back the visitors off a -1 handicap at odds of 25/19 with BetVictor.

Both Teams to Score

We’re expecting the net to bulge a few times during this Saturday teatime encounter and it’s a view shared by the bookies who offer 4/7 about the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score betting market.

William Hill have those odds available, although those that think at least one team will fail to score during the ninety minutes can back the “No” option at 13/8 with BetVictor.
