Next I chose to bet on the match between Manchester United vs. Leicester City.
- Has a total market value of 846 millions euros. The most valued player: Romelu Lukaku (Centre-Forward), 25 years old: 100 millions euros.
Squad average age: 26,7.
Manchester United is seen as a clear favorite in this dispute, according to betting agencies, which does not surprise anyone, being the better team, no doubt, also benefiting from the advantage of their own ground, where supporters will definitely play an important role.
Manchester United did not impress on transfers this summer, bringing only three players, goalkeeper Lee Grant from Stoke, Fred from Sahtior Donetsk and Diogo Dalot from FC Porto.
"Red Devils" did not impressed in the previous season, ending second in the standings, losing the title for the fifth season in a row, thus ensuring their direct qualification in the Champions League groups.
In the pre-season, Jose Mourinho's team played six friendly games in which he did not impress, winning two with AC Milan and Real Madrid, drawing with Club America and San Jose Earthquakes and being defeated by Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
The hosts will not be able to count on: Nemanja Matic, Diogo Dalot, Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo, all of whom are unavailable due to injuries.
- Has a total market value of 321 millions euros. The most valued player: Harry Maguire (Centre-Back), 25 years old: 35 millions euros.
- Squad average age: 27,3.
On the other side, Leicester is ranked second in bets, as it would normally be, going to play with a superior opponent, being also disadvantaged by the fact that it will evolve away on a field where they did not won for two decades.
Like his opponent, Leicester was active in the pre-season, playing five friendly matches, winning two , defeating Notts County and Lille, drawing with Akhisar Belediye and Valencia, losing to Udinese.
They did not impress in the previous season, ending only on a modest new place in the standings, thus losing qualification in European competitions.
Claude Puel has no big team problems, only Matty James being injured, while Jamie Vardy is uncertain, he is in preparation, so Iheanacho will most likely start attacking.
This summer, Leicester lost Ahmed Musa and Riyad Mahrez, bringing Jonny Evans, James Madison, Ricardo Pereira, Danny Ward and Rachid Ghezzal.
In the previous season, Manchester United won 2 - 0 on its own field, followed by a 2 - 2 on Leicester field.
My bet: Manchester United to win & Over 1.5 goals: @1.87
Good luck to everyone! And don’t forget: in football everything is possible...
