Competition: FA Cup
Market: Leicester to beat Sheffield United
Odds: 4/7 @ Bet365
The FA Cup returns this weekend for yet another massive round of games that will only bring more action and excitement. The FA Cup is a competition that caters to shocking results, with the big teams often felled by their lower-league opponents, and with this in mind, former Premier League champions Leicester take on Sheffield United on Friday.
Leicester have been in good form this season and they are a side that are chasing a Europa League spot this season. After 27 games they have won nine, drawn eight and lost 10, while they have scored 39 times and conceded 40 goals. In their last five they have won just once, drawing twice and losing twice, which has seen the Foxes onto 35 points for the season so far. With the sides above them a long way clear, the only trophy Leicester can win is the FA Cup, meaning they will surely go all out to win it.
Sheffield United have been in good form in the Championship this season and they are chasing a playoff spot. After 31 games they have won 15, drawn four and lost 12, scoring 44 times and conceding 37 goals. In their last five they have won twice, drawn once and lost twice which has seen them onto 49 points. United will feel that they have the ability to go deeper into the competition and that if they can get at Leicester early, then they could claim a shock result.
