Newcastle United vs Leicester City Match Preview
Away wins are central to this tie and Leicester are backed to keep the trend going by reaching the third round of the Carabao Cup in 90 minutes at St James’ Park.
Meetings between these clubs have been dominated by whoever were the visiting team over the last few years, as the head-to-head section above shows, and Leicester have won on their last three journeys to Tyneside with Jamie Vardy scoring on two of those occasions.
And just as a further boost in the build-up to travelling up to Newcastle again, Leicester enjoyed their first Premier League win of the season at the weekend, 2-1 away to Sheffield United with goals from Vardy and Harvey Barnes.
Newcastle pulled off an even more commendable success on the road, 1-0 at Tottenham with the first goal for the club from their £40million Brazilian summer striker signing Joelinton.
Results like that will help manager Steve Bruce keep the sceptics quiet and a run to the later stages of this competition would do no harm either, provided it was not at the expense of the team’s league form.
But Leicester appear to be the more solid of these teams with greater strength in depth to allow manager Brendan Rodgers to rotate his squad more effectively and with an excellent recent record in this part of the world, they are backed to progress within normal time.
