aston-villa vs leicester Tip Reason:

Nine of Aston Villa’s last 11 home games have seen at least three goals scored. Leicester have seen Over 2.5 Goals land in six of their last seven competitive away games. Leicester have scored 2.29 goals per away game this season, but have only kept two clean sheets in their last seven. Aston Villa have lost four of their last eight competitive home games. Weekend off gives Villa extra time to prepare Aston Villa’s Third Round FA Cup exit at the hands of Fulham earlier this month gave them a rare weekend off this week; but now their attentions turn towards a potential cup final as they head into the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final. The Villans looked all set to be carrying an advantage into this clash until Kelechi Iheanacho’s late equaliser at the King Power Stadium and, while they can take heart from that performance, they will certainly be aware of the quality Leicester possess. Not only that, but the hosts have only won one of their last five competitive games; even at home they have won just half their matches this season. Stronger Leicester squad expected on Tuesday Leicester, unlike their opponents, weren’t afforded the weekend off as a significantly weakened team saw off the threat of Brentford in the FA Cup Fourth Round. However, with an appearance at Wembley at stake, we can expect a stronger starting line-up from Brendan Rodgers on Tuesday. The Foxes may not be in the sensational form that lifted them to second in the Premier League right now, but their quality can’t be ignored. They have still won five of their last eight outings, so are far from an out-of-form team. Surprisingly, they seem even better away from home, too. They have won eight of their last 11 competitive away days, including that incredible 9-0 drubbing of Southampton. That scoreline, while anomalous, is a good illustration of Leicester’s strengths. They have scored in all but one of their trips away this season, netting an average of 2.29 goals per game. High-scoring affair anticipated at Villa Park However, they have conceded in five of their last seven on the road and the result has been plenty of high-scoring affairs. In fact, six of these seven games have seen at least three goals scored. Meanwhile, Aston Villa have seen at least three goals in nine of their last 11 games at Villa Park; considering the last meeting between these teams in December saw a 4-1 Leicester win, we like the look of Over 2.5 Goals here. With Leicester’s excellent away record, we’re expecting a win for the visitors. They have averaged 2.29 goals per away game and Aston Villa have conceded 1.57 goals per home game, so a 2-1 correct score prediction looks good to us.
