Bet Of The Day August 9 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Leicester have won four of their last five games in all competitions
  • Burton have lost three of their last four games in all competitions
  • Leicester have conceded at least one goal in 19 of their last 20 games
  • Leicester beat Burton 3-1 on the road in this competition back in 2019
  • Leicester have won four of their last five ties vs lower league opposition
  • Burton haven’t won an EFL Cup game inside 90 minutes since 2019

We’re off to the EFL Cup for today’s best bet as Leicester look to build on their winning start to the season when they come up against League One side Burton.

Despite being relegated from the Premier League, Leicester have maintained a very strong squad for this season and got their Championship campaign off to the perfect start on the weekend, coming from behind to beat Coventry 2-1.

Coventry were one win from making the Premier League last season, so it was an impressive first up win for the Foxes.

Leicester will want to keep their momentum going in this mid-week Cup tie and they will be confident of getting the better of Burton, who lost their opening League One match 2-0 to Blackpool.

However, Burton can get on the scoresheet at home.

Leicester’s defence has been terrible for basically a year now – they’ve only kept one clean sheet in their last 20 competitive games.

With a lot of their squad remaining, this trend looks like it could continue into this season.

Leicester should still prove too strong in the end though – they’ve won four of their last five ties with teams ranked in leagues below them, including beating Burton 3-1 on the road back in 2019.
