MK Dons haven't had a great season in League One but they are coming from a win in the league as they prepare to take on Premier League side Leicester City in the League Cup. While this will be Leicester City’s first game after the World Cup break, MK Dons have been in action through the World Cup period and will have reason to feel fitter. Their win over Portsmouth in the last game was their first in five and also the first clean sheet in that run. They have conceded two or more goals in three of the last five matches and three of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals. MK Dons have also scored in each of their last five matches, on two occasions scoring more than a goal. Competitively, they have met twice with Leicester City, the last meeting coming way back in 2009 in League One
Leicester City started the season on a low but they caught up well towards the World Cup break and they go into this game on the back of three straight wins. They scored two or more goals in each of their last three games before the World Cup and also kept clean sheets in them. Going into this game, they will be outright favorites, having lost just once in their last seven matches in competitive action. Leicester City have failed to score in just two of their last 11 competitive matches. Away from home, Leicester City have three straight wins coming into this game and they have also registered clean sheets in those three matches. Four times in their last five away matches, Leicester have scored more than a goal.
Leicester City played one friendly game against Troyes before this game; they drew 0-0. They haven’t played a lot in the last one month but go into this game as favorites, looking at their opponents’ recent form and the fact that MK Dons haven’t really done well defensively. Back Leicester City to win with a clean sheet.
