Leicester’s pre-season tour of Sweden concludes today with their final match in the Stockholm Football Trophy.
Having beaten IK Sirius 3-1 and drawn with Real Mallorca 1-1 last week, the Foxes will take on Vasalunds IF before heading to Austria for another training camp.
Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has been encouraged by his team’s efforts in Sweden so far, particularly in matching La Liga side Real Mallorca on Thursday.
Vasalunds will be a big step down in quality compared with Michael Laudrup’s side, which explains why the Championship outfit are 11/50 favourites for the win.
The Swedish side play in their country’s Division One Norra, which is the equivalent of League One in England.
With 13 games gone in their campaign, they sit in sixth place with a record of five wins, six draws and two losses.
They might have been on a good run of late – with a win and three draws coming in their last four games – but this is unlikely to count for much when they come up against such superior opposition as Leicester.
An unlikely victory for Vasalunds IF is priced at 15/2 in bwin’s football betting 3Way result market, with a draw at 19/4.
However, those looking for a bet with bigger returns than those provided by odds on Leicester to win could hope that Eriksson’s determination to give game time to as many players as he can will backfire.
The former England manager wants to top up his players’ match fitness and confirmed “everyone” would play 45 minutes.
With this in mind, odds of 13/5 on the match ending in either a Vasalunds victory or a draw could prove tempting.
A successful £25 free bet on this outcome, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £90.
Leicester’s first competitive game of the season will be against Coventry on Saturday 6th August.
Early Coventry v Leicester betting makes Eriksson’s men favourites to take all three points.
