Newport County vs Leicester City | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The FA Cup is notorious for throwing up sensational match ups and few look as enticing as fourth tier Newport County facing off against Leicester City. The Foxes are flying high in 7th position in the Premier League but will be all too aware of the threats lower league opposition can pose and with Newport famously troubling Tottenham in the FA Cup last year, this promises to be an excellent tie for the neutral.
Mike Flynn’s Newport County have failed to make a significant impact in League Two this season and currently sit locked in mid table in 12th place. The Exiles beat Welsh rivals Wrexham 4-0 in the last round to reach this stage and Rodney Parade is sure to be rocking with the arrival of Leicester City. Padraig Amond has thumped the goals in this season (14) and the Northern Irishman has a habit of scoring on the big stage.
The Foxes have beaten the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton in recent weeks and look in great form in the Premier League – climbing to 7th. Claude Puel is often revered for his calm approach and it seems to be paying off currently for a side that would love some silverware having been knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the quarter final stages. Jamie Vardy continues to lead the line with aplomb for Leicester and the Englishman will be hoping to add to his tally of 7 for the season here.
Head to Head
Leicester City have never lost a competitive fixture to Newport County – leading the head to head record between the sides 3:0 whilst another 1 match ended as a draw back in 1920.
