Stockport County vs Leicester City: Our top betting tips

Stockport can't but a win right now; surely one won't arrive here, will it? Find out with our Stockport County vs Leicester City match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Leicester to win end to end game

Leicester City are huge favourites here, and with good reason; while the Foxes play in the English top flight, their opponents play in League Two, the fourth tier of English football. There's a huge difference in quality between these sides; and despite Leicester City's recent shortcomings, they should be able to win this match. However, we should point out that Leicester City kept just one clean sheet in their last six games, while Stockport scored in all of their last seven matches; on that note, while Leicester City will likely win this match, they should concede as well.

Goals galore

We've pointed out that Leicester City have seen their defence breached in five of their last six games; we should also mention that they've been very consistent in goalscoring terms. As a matter of fact, the Foxes found the back of the net in all of their last 14 matches across all competitions; nine of their last 10 games saw at least three goals scored, including their last three. In like manner, Stockport have had their fair share of high-scoring games; as four of their last six games went over 2.5. Taking all things into consideration, this will likely be a high-scoring affair.

The Foxes should tear County apart

On paper, Leicester City should be far too strong for Stockport County. Football, however, is not played on paper and Stockport could well see this game as a welcome distraction to what has been a utterly woeful start to their league campaign; Leicester don't look great right now either so an upset isn't impossible.

Stockport County are coming off back-to-back 2:1 losses against Mansfield Town and Doncaster Rovers; they haven't had a great season overall, with four losses in their last six games. David Challinor's men will host Leicester City at Edgeley Park on Tuesday; it'll be interesting to see how they'll fare against the Premier League side.

Stockport County Predicted lineup – Jaros, Lewis, Horsfall, Johnson, Brown, Sarcevic, Croasdale, Camps, Kitching, Wootton, Madden

Leicester City were on a four match winning streak heading into their new Premier League campaign; however, that form did not follow them into their new season. The Foxes have no wins in three league games so far, with a draw and two losses; they'll be eyeing their first win of the season as they take on an out-of-form Stockport side.

Leicester City Predicted lineup – Ward, Castagne, Amartey, Evans, Justin, Ndidi, Perez, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Daka
