Randers vs. Leicester Predictions: Daka to finish the job for the Foxes
Randers vs. Leicester Odds
The European action continues on Thursday with eight fixtures in the Europa League and another eight in the newly formed Europa Conference League. Celtic and Leicester City spearhead the UK charge in the latter and we've tasked our man Adam Roberts to look at The Foxes clash with Danish side Randers.
Randers vs. Leicester Tips
Leicester look in good shape in this tie having won 4-1 in the home leg at the King Power last week and will be looking for a comfortable win here to take them through to the round of 16 draw. Brendan Rodger's men have had a torrid time recently in domestic football and this may well provide their best chance of European football next season with the Europa Conference winners gaining a Europa League spot.
They come up against a Randers side who are 5th in the Danish Superliga and who's best ever finish in that league is a 3rd place back in 2012/13. They have also won the Danish Cup twice, the last time being last year, which enabled their European qualification for this season.
Our first selection is for both teams to score. Leicester haven't kept a clean sheet since the 28th December when they beat Liverpool 1-0 at home. Since then they've played eight games with only two wins; one of which was the game last week versus Randers. Of course this bet landed last week and Randers have only failed to score once in their last 10 games in all competitions.
I like the 4/5 on offer for both teams to score here and it will form my main bet.
My next bet is on Patson Daka to score first. The 23-year-old Zambian scored last week in the reverse fixture and should start up front again here tonight. Daka has six goals in Europe this year in just six games and is averaging three shots per game. He's also scored four goals in just seven starts in the Premier League so is clearly a man in form, albeit in a struggling team.
Against an inferior team with a shaky defence I expect Daka to bag here and with the 9/2 on offer, I'm going to take a chance on him netting first.
