The best odds from Paddy Power ahead of City's Capital One Cup clash with the Foxes...
Manchester City have won their last two away games in all competitions 3-2 and are 19/1 to beat Leicester by the same score on Tuesday night. (7.45pm).
City will be looking to keep up their rich vein of scoring form after the 6-3 home win over Arsenal in the Barclays Premier League and are 4/11 in Paddy Power’s win-draw-win market for this Capital One Cup clash.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have yet to concede a goal in the competition after beating Wigan (5-0) and Newcastle (2-0) and are 6/5 with Paddy Power to keep a clean sheet or 7/5 to win to nil against Nigel Pearson’s side.
With City facing a Premier League fixture pile-up over Christmas, Pellegrini may take the chance to rotate his squad who have just played four games in 10 days.
Edin Dzeko has scored in the wins over Wigan and Newcastle and is 7/2 with Paddy Power to get the first goal of the game or 12/5 to score first for his team on Tuesday night.
The last time these sides met was an FA Cup replay in 2011 when City ran out 4-2 winners at the Etihad, after being held 2-2 at the King Power Stadium.
James Milner hit the net in the away draw and is 12/1 with Paddy Power to opening the scoring or 7/2 to score at any time on Tuesday and follow up his winning goal that ended Bayern Munich’s 10-match winning streak in the Champions League last week.
Aleksandar Kolarov scored from the penalty spot in the away win at Bayern and was also on target in the 4-2 replay win against the Foxes in 2011. The Serbian defender is 14/1 to get the opener or 4/1 to score at any time against Leicester with Paddy Power.
City to repeat that 4-2 score-line is 33/1 in Paddy Power’s correct score market against a Leicester side who sit third in the Championship and have only lost once at home in the league this season.
