Zorya vs Leicester: Foxes are worth sticking with

Kick-off: 1755, 03/12/2020

Stadium: Slavutych Arena

Leicester have already qualified for the Europa League knockout stages, so they may ease off a touch when visiting the Ukraine to face Zorya.

However, Brendan Rodgers has some useful fringe players pushing for more game time and they are still fancied to prove a cut above their hosts.

We’re going with 21/10 for an away victory and both teams to score for our first Zorya vs Leicester prediction.

A Look At Zorya Lugansk’s Betting Odds

Zorya kept alive their slim hopes of progressing when pulling off a 3-0 upset against AEK Athens in Greece on Matchday 4.

Viktor Skrypnyk’s side capitalised on the 48th-minute dismissal of Evgeniy Shakhov to score all of their goals in the second half.

That was their first points gained in a campaign which began with a 3-0 loss at Leicester.

To be fair, Zorya did create some early chances at King Power Stadium and enjoyed 54 per cent of the possession overall in that match.

However, the Ukrainian outfit could only manage late consolation goals when going down 2-1 to Braga and 4-1 to AEK at this venue.

Playing away from their usual ground due to internal issues is an obvious hinderance and it will be a surprise if they can match City.

Looking at the Zorya vs Leicester odds, there is plenty of appeal in 27/20 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Kelechi Iheanacho were on target when Leicester beat Zorya in England on Matchday 1.

The Foxes then prevailed 2-1 away to AEK before Iheanacho hit a double in an ultra-impressive home win over Braga.

Qualification was assured after a thrilling 3-3 draw against Braga in Portugal, where City came from behind for the third time when Jamie Vardy netted in the 95th minute.

Rodgers may now be reluctant to roll out some of his bigger names, but has strength in depth at his disposal and the kind of players who can help to change tactics, if required.

Four road wins in the Premier League this season shows they are well suited to soaking up any pressure and pouncing on the break.

Let’s finish off our Zorya vs Leicester betting tips by taking 13/4 for the Foxes to oblige 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 in the multiple correct score market.
