Spurs vs Leicester - betting preview with Marathonbet
23 January 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
With only three wins from their last 18 games in all competitions, Nigel Pearson’s Foxes side arrive at White Hart Lane not in the best run of form.
Spurs on the other hand have only lost one of their last 11 and enter the match on the back of three successive wins.
With the game taking place half-way through the two-legged Capital One Cup semi-finals, however, the visitors will hope that their hosts’ attention lies elsewhere given that a potential trip to Wembley is on the horizon.
Mauricio Pochettino is likely to view this as a winnable fixture though and, thanks to the depth of his squad, will be confident of notching a fourth win on the trot.
However, cup clashes can be unpredictable and Spurs fans will do well to remember that the last meeting between the two in the FA Cup ended in a 3-2 defeat thanks to a 90th minute Mark de Vries winner.
Many would consider a repeat performance unlikely given the Foxes’ struggles of late but, should they throw caution to the wind, a Spurs win with over 2.5 goals is 13/10.
