Leicester vs Arsenal Free Betting Tips – EFL Cup 2020
Top game in the third round of the EFL Cup
In the third round of the EFL Cup 2020, the international starters will now also intervene. The draw brought an absolute top game – on Wednesday evening Leicester and Arsenal face each other at the King Power Stadium. Both teams can look back on a perfect start to the season in the Premier League and want to prove their strong form in the cup too.
The EFL Cup, which will be held for the 61st time in 2020/21, does not enjoy the highest reputation in England, but it does mean the shortest route to Europe. Leicester has won the cup three times so far (most recently in 2000), FA Cup specialist Arsenal only twice (most recently in 1993).
Compared to the formation from last weekend, both teams will rotate vigorously. In the intense 2020/21 season, it is all the more important to distribute the load wisely. The squad width gives the Gunners an advantage. The best bookmakers agree with this opinion and offer slightly lower odds on the success of the guests between Leicester and Arsenal.
The game for the Kracher duel in the EFL Cup 2020 starts on Wednesday evening.
🥅 Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Leicester – Statistics & Current Form
In the season finale, the sensation champion from 2015/16 ran out of steam and the team of head coach Brendan Rodgers gambled away the Champions League qualification, which had already been believed to be safe. Compared to last year, the departure of Ben Chilwell, who joined Chelsea, is particularly painful. Otherwise, the trunk could be held.
Perfect start to the season
For the double burden of national games and the Europa League, the squad was reinforced in terms of width. Atalanta Bergamo’s Timothy Castagne is seen as a direct replacement for Chilwell in the full-back position, and a few days ago Söyüncü friend Cengiz Ünder was loaned from Roma.
By and large, however, Leicester is building on continuity and this has paid off at the start of the season. Two games, two wins, a goal difference of plus five mean that they are currently number one in the Premier League table. Especially James Vardy (who recently extended his contract) and Harvey Barnes are convincing on the front line with a lot of wit and danger of scoring.
Leicester’s philosophy of play has changed
Hold-up switching after winning the ball has been a major part of Leicester City for years. In the last few months, the philosophy has changed a bit. Leicester not only lurks for mistakes by their opponents and then plays an outstanding vertical game, but now also acts dominantly and can determine the game.
In the 4-2 win on Monday night against Burnley, the Rodgers team had almost 67% possession. More possession for Leicester is no longer uncommon.
With this change, even more, goals can be expected at Leicester. In 2019/20, an average of almost two goals per game was scored in home games, and there are currently seven goals in two games. In this regard, the tip on the over 2.5 between Leicester and Arsenal seems quite interesting.
The probable lineup of Leicester:
↪️ Ward – Fuchs, Evans, Ndidi, Justin – Choudhury – Gray, Silva, James, Ghezzal – Iheaneacho

Arsenal – stats & current form
The trophy was the last straw for the Gunners and thanks to a derby win against Chelsea, the Arteta team secured a ticket for Europe at the last minute. Even if the Gunner has far better experiences as record winners in the FA Cup, Arteta will not take the league cup lightly.
Extremely weak away from home last season
As table eight in the Premier League, the Gunners would have missed qualifying for Europe. After two disappointing seasons, Arteta has to be measured against the Champions League participation this season.
A prerequisite for this is that the Gunners also act more convincingly on a foreign pitch. In 2019/20 Arsenal celebrated 14 wins, but only four in a foreign place. In the first away game of the season, the Arteta managed a sovereign 3-0 win at promoted Fulham.
Extremely broad squad speaks for Arsenal
For Arsenal, the away game on Anfield Road will be the first big hit of the season this weekend. Given this game, Mikel Arteta will give players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, and Willian a break.
Nonetheless, Arsenal is considered a slight favorite by bookmakers. This is due to the extremely broad squad that Arteta has available. For many years there have been countless youngsters with an enormous amount of talent at Arsenal who can now prove themselves once again.
Players like Edward Nketiah (scorer in the derby against West Ham at the weekend), Ainsley Maitland-Niles, or newcomer William Saliba are eager for their chances and are qualitatively higher than the Foxes’ second guard.
The probable lineup of Arsenal:
↪️ Leno – Saliba, Luiz, Holding – Maitland-Niles, Willock, Elneny, Cedric Soares – Saka, Nketiah, Pepe
Last matches from Arsenal:
⚽️ 09/19 2020 Arsenal London 2 – 1 West Ham
