Football betting tips this weekend for Leicester – Man United
It’s going to be really exciting at the King Power Stadium on Sunday where Leicester City will host Manchester United in a fixture from the 1/4-finals of the FA Cup. Let us provide you with some information about this game in these football betting tips this weekend.
Leicester City reached this phase of the FA Cup after a difficult 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the previous round. The game was about to end with a draw, but the Foxes’ Kelechi Iheanacho scored a very late winner in the 94th minute. The Nigerian striker put the ball in the net after an assist from Yoeri Tielemans and allowed Leicester to progress in the competition.
Few days ago Leicester City showed some muscle in their last Premier League game. Brendan Rodgers’ team faced Sheffield United at home at King Power and rocked their opponent with a 5-0 win. The same Kelechi Iheanacho scored a hattrick while Ayoze Perez added one more. United’s Ethan Ampadu scored himself an own goal.
In the previous round of the FA Cup Manchester United needed extra-time in order to progress. The Red Devils faced West Ham United at the Old Trafford and the regular 90 minutes ended with a 0-0 draw. The decisive moment came in the 97th minute when Scott McTominay put the ball behind Lukasz Fabianski’s back and allowed United to reach the 1/4-finals.
For Manchester United this game comes just three days after a very difficult visit to Milan in Italy. This means that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to rotate his line-up a little bit. It’s going to be a tough game against the Rossoneri, so United need to be as fresh as possible on Sunday.
That’s the football betting tips this weekend for the FA Cup fixture between Leicester City and Manchester United at the King Power. One of these two teams will reach the 1/2-finals of the competition, but let’s see which one.
