Leicester – Sheffield Utd : Preview & Prediction
Leicester will host Sheffield United next Friday in a game to count towards the fifth round of the FA Cup, set at 7:45 p.m. It is a game to be eliminated if there is a win of either party, if it ends tied a second hand will be played at the home of Sheffield and only that day will know who advances to the quarterfinals. Leicester have reached this stage after beating Peterborough out (5-1) and now they want to take advantage of the home factor and play against a theoretically weaker team to decide the tie. Sheffield knocked out Preston at home (1-0), they have a very tough team and will do their utmost to try to take the game to a second leg in their stadium but it is not easy to stop Leicester against their fans … A match to follow!
The house factor, very important in the games to eliminate.
Sheffield conceded a goal in 11 of their last 12 matches as a visitor (for all competitions).
Leicester have won 3 of their last 4 matches at home (for all competitions).
We expect a very hefty Sheffield and a lot of surrender but we do not think that is enough to prevent Leicester from winning against their fans. Bet on the home team win!
