Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Both teams have scored in four of Burton’s last five EFL Cup ties and they can get on the scoresheet against a Leicester side that have kept just one clean sheet in their last 20 competitive games.

Leicester City 2-1

Reason for tip

Leicester have won four of their last five ties with lower-league opponents and Burton haven’t had the best of times in this competition recently, failing to win in 90 minutes since 2019.

Burton Albion vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in four of Burton’s last five EFL Cup games.
  • Leicester have kept just one clean sheet in their last 20 competitive ties.
  • Leicester have won four of their last five meetings with lower-league opponents.

Albion can threaten frail Foxes

Leicester were fortunate to come away from Coventry with all three points in their Championship opener on Sunday and they could find themselves under pressure at the back again, although the Foxes have the quality to seal a victory against Burton.

The hosts, who lost their curtain-raiser at Blackpool on Saturday, do not have the best record in the EFL Cup. They are without a win in normal time in this competition since 2019 and have conceded ten goals in the five games since.

They have, however, scored in seven of their last eight EFL Cup ties and have scored in five of their last six competitive home games. They should be able to trouble a Leicester defence that have only kept one clean sheet in their last 20 games in all competitions.

Backing both teams to score looks the way to go, although I expect the Foxes to claim another win. They have won four of their last five meetings with lower-league opposition so a 2-1 correct score prediction appeals.
