League: English FA Cup

Kick-off at 17:31 UK/ 18:31 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
Leicester vs Wigan: The teams will meet after a five-year gap in their h2h clashes. This season, Leicester has been an amazing contingent in the Premier League table under Liverpool at the top. The host has been playing well with his strikers finding the bottom of the net in most of his games.
His star player has been James Vardy this season. On top of that, Leicester has only two of his last ten games in the main competitions. Even so, they have lost to bigger names like Man City and Liverpool.
Therefore, we can expect the home team to dominate in the match against the Championship team. On top of that, Wigan is at the bottom of the Championship table this season.
Other than that, Leicester has kept his ground as his strongest suit with only one loss at home this season so far. They also had a winning streak of nine games in the Premier League this season. As such, the host will probably lead the two halves against Wigan.
With his last 13 games resulting in a state without victories, Wigan has much less to ask in the clash. In addition, they have 7 defeats and 6 draws of these 13 games without victories against Championship teams.
Therefore, the chances of Wigan acting against Leicester at King Power Stadium are far from happening. In addition, Latics have not won any of their away matches this season so far.
Therefore, we can count on Leicester City to record the victory leading the two halves of the game. In addition, we can expect your total score to be less than 4.5 goals in ninety minutes.
