Leicester City Preview – Can Leicester find distraction in EL?

Having lost three of their last four matches in all competitions, Leicester City may be welcoming a change of scene and a different competition as they prepare for the visit of Ukrainian side, Zorya, for this opening match in Group G.

A 2-0 League Cup defeat at home to Arsenal has been followed by back-to-back defeats at home in the Premier League to West Ham and Aston Villa and although they inflicted a heavy 5-2 loss upon Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, this result seems to have been wasted by The Foxes’ recent defeats.

Manager, Brendan Rodgers, will therefore be keen for his side to stamp their authority on this tie early on and gain a much-needed home win as they look to finish in the top two places in Group G which also includes AEK Athens and Sporting Braga.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Zorya Preview – Can Zorya keep Foxes at bay?

Zorya bring a five-match unbeaten run into this clash in the east midlands against Leicester City in the Europa League having recorded a 5-0 thrashing over Lviv away from home in the Ukraine Premier League along with draws against Shakhtar Donetsk, Dynamo Kyiv, Inhulets (friendly) and Kolos Kovalivka.

The recent number of draws suggest that Zorya may well be lacking the necessary cutting edge up front and on the Europa League front, the visitors have picked up just three wins out of their last 13 matches overall at this level.

Two of these three wins have been collected on home turf at their Slavutych-Arena, while results on the road in this competition have seen Zorya claim just two wins from their previous 12 ties which were at Athletic Bilbao (2017) and Buducnost (last July), so they could find themselves up against it if Leicester City are in the mood here.
