Bees Can Trouble Foxes
The Premier League high-flyers still have the Europa League to consider, as well as the top-four chase. If Rodgers rotates a lot then arguably the strongest team outside of the top flight can claim another notable scalp.
Given their imperious form in the Championship, Betfair’s market-leading 5/1 on Brentford to beat Leicester, at home, in the FA Cup 4th Round looks generous.
The Bees are 16 undefeated in the second tier and have already enjoyed a run to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup this season. With both leading strikers missing for either side, we’re backing Brentford and Under 3.5 Goals in the match at best odds of 11/2 with PaddyPower.
The absence of Vardy will be particularly hard felt by Rodgers in the coming weeks. Iheanacho is yet to find the net domestically in 2020-21, while Ayoze Perez has just 2 goals across all competitions.
This is a serious banana skin, and Leicester should be more marginal favourites. We can snap up some value accordingly.
