Brentford booked their place at this stage of the FA Cup thanks to a narrow yet thoroughly deserved win over Stoke City in the Third Round. 1-0 was the score that day as the locals battled past a stubborn opponent, both teams knowing just what a run in the nation’s favourite knockout competition would do for their bank balance. Marcondes netted the only goal of the game just before half-time and that proved enough.
Looking for a Champions League Spot
Leicester City arrives in town as the main attraction. They are the former Premier League champions who are back in the top four and chasing re-entry to the Champions League. Manager Brendan Rodgers is sure to change up his squad, resting a few tired legs, but those coming in can be trusted to get the job done. Leicester is a cracking 4/5 at Unibet to win this match and that’s better than we expected to find.
