The second League Cup semi-final gets underway on Wednesday night as Leicester host Aston Villa in a match which has an added bit of Midlands rivalry to it. I have a good looking Same Game Multi for the match and you could have a risk free shot at winning £163 by backing it.

Leicester are the well-backed favourites and go into the first leg odds-on. The Foxes are very strong at the King Power where they have only lost once in their last 14 matches, that defeat came against Liverpool on Boxing Day, the only side above them in the Premier League. Leicester will fancy themselves to beat a struggling Villa side over two legs, and have a great opportunity to win some silverware this season in the form of the League Cup, and that would supplement a top four finish nicely, and that looks inevitable at this stage.
I expect a Leicester win, but I am also expecting Aston Villa to score in the match. Results and form has been up and down for them this season but they haven’t been that bad in front of goal, they’re the highest scorers in the bottom half of the Premier League. And when it comes to the League Cup, they have scored 16 goals across four matches which is an average of four goals a game.
Over 2.5 goals appears to be another solid selection, that has been a winner in every round for Aston Villa so far. As for Leicester, their last three League Cup matches have seen four goals scored which is more than enough for an over 2.5 goals selection to be a winner. 10 of Aston Villa’s last 11 away matches in all competitions have seen three or more goals.
When it comes to an anytime goalscorer, I like the look of James Maddison and I believe that he provides the best value. You could take Jamie Vardy at 1.50 but for me personally, that is far too short, and doesn’t offer much value. James Maddison has scored three League Cup goals this season, scoring in every round that he has played, including in the last against Everton at Goodison Park.
