Leicester City-Manchester City Betting Preview: Away side to continue rich vein of scoring form

Manuel Pellegrini takes his side to the East Midlands this evening in the Capital One Cup quarter-final, with our tipster backing plenty of goals from the visitors
Leicester City play host to Manchester City on Tuesday with a place in the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup up for grabs.

The Foxes beat Fulham in a thrilling match at the KP Stadium in the last round, with Nigel Pearson's men coming out on top in a 4-3 win.

Leicester are 8/1 (9.00) with bet365 to take another Premier League scalp.

Manchester City come into this match in sensational form, winning six of their last seven matches, including victories against Bayern Munich and Arsenal. Manuel Pellegrini's men are 4/11 (1.36) with bet365 to win.

If you fancy these two sides to cancel each other out, you can back the draw at 9/2 (5.50).

With Man City too skinny to back, the price of them to win with a -1 handicap with bet365 is a tempting 10/11 (1.91). However, with Leicester only losing once at home this season, it may be worth avoiding.

A bet that does stand out is total team goals. Manchester City have been in fantastic form in front of goal, netting a remarkable 26 goals in their last seven matches. Pellegrini's side are 6/5 (2.20) to net over 2.5 goals with bet365.

This bet would have paid out in six of their last seven matches and, with the Foxes keeping only one clean sheet in their last six, it's certainly worth backing away goals.
