Barcelona (2/7) Draw (51/10) Leicester (11/1) See the Latest Odds
The La Liga champions will be taking on the English Premier League champions in what should be quite an interesting pre-season game. Barcelona have not been playing their best team with the likes of Neymar at the Olympics while Leicester are going all guns blazing so I think we are in for a closing contested game.
Barcelona are going on like usual as they have been winning easily with the players that are available and that will give the entire squad confidence knowing that they can deal with injuries if they are to come up during the regular season. This side is well designed and the players that are missing are being replaced by new players who know how to do a job and are at a very high level.
Leicester City were never the most talented team in the world but they always played well together as a side. It seems that the departure of Kante may have been a big blow and we can see that as they got smashed against PSG a few days ago. It will be important that the Foxes bounce back from that defeat and a draw or a win here will be just that.
I think Leicester City will bounce back against a second rate FC Barcelona and I am going to predict a win for the Foxes. We are getting an incredible bet on this outcome so I think a small bet is the best option here. Another bet that is worth looking at for this game is in relation to the goal line. Once again I think we will get a high scoring game and the over 2.5 goals is looking nice. Another bet is both teams to score since I don’t see either defense being able to keep a clean sheet.
