Leicester vs Aston Villa: The home advantage has undoubtedly made its charm for Leicester this season. And now, Aston Villa also loses his Wesley talisman after an injury, it goes without saying that the visiting contingent is about to run for his money.
Leicester saw his redness saved during the previous round of this competition only by the narrowest margins. The hosts were 2-0 at halftime in their quarterfinal match with Everton, only for the Toffees to tie with two goals from their own position after the restart.
However, Cenk Tosun and Leighton Baines failed to find the bottom of the net on penalties soon after, giving the Fox a fine for the last four.
On the other hand, Aston Villa entered the semifinals in style after winning an energetic 5-0 victory, although over a fairly young and inexperienced Liverpool team. It should also be mentioned that visitors have tried success only twice in their last five games since this victory.
Accumulating even more misery, the guests were marked as one of the worst sides of the flight. In contrast, Leicester has only stumbled once at home this season. This also against the current tabletops.
Since the hosts are undefeated in their last three encounters with this enemy here too, count on Leicester to ensure bragging rights on this one.
In addition, the Fox have put on their exclusive shoes at King Power Stadium and have scored two or more goals in eight of their last ten games here, in all competitions.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa has been too easy to get on the road this quarter. Miserably, they conceded ten goals in their previous five games, and have not yet saved the blank sheet.
To top it off, four of his last five h2h games here have been high scores. As such, it is safe to expect more than 2.5 goals in the final scores this Wednesday.
