EFL Cup: BAFC vs Leicester City

Admittedly, Leicester City is luckier than many other representatives of the Premier League in the League Cup.  If in the third round, Brendan Rodgers' teachers and students only have to face Luton Town, then in the eighth round, the lucky draw brings them to Burton Albion, the team playing in League One.

To see the luck of Leicester City, look at the remaining matches.  While Chelsea confront MU, Liverpool must fight against Arsenal.  Man City, though easier to breathe, of course Southampton is much harder than Burton Albion.  In the other two pairs, the Premier League representatives also have to overlap to win the ticket to go on, which is Everton vs Watford, Aston Villa vs Wolves.

Leicester's current performance is very reliable.  Last weekend, the army of coach Rodgers went into the history of the No. 1 league of the fog as the team with the biggest away win, when beating host Southampton 9-0.  It is worth mentioning, this is the 5th triumph of the last 6 matches of the "Foxes".

On the opposite side, Burton Albion played quite flattering.  In the last 5 matches, they won 2, drew 1, lost 2. In terms of the market, the 3rd team was unbeaten in Asia 4/5 matches.  Particularly at home, they are circuit 3 game does not bring joy to investors.  The last time Leicester City accepted a goal, Burton Albion lost 0-2, the score was just enough for them to push investors into the death gate.  In that situation, there was no reason to turn away from the visitors.
