Betting Tip: Leicester City @ 5/4 with bet365

Claudio Ranieri was swift to hook Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez at Old Trafford on Saturday, with the Italian keen to rest his star men for Tuesday night’s clash against Porto.

However, the Leicester manager will be concerned as to how badly the team defended set pieces against Manchester United, with the Red Devils running riot for 45 minutes before the Foxes managed to shore things up.

Nevertheless, the Midlands side have looked strong at home this season and they also began life in Europe with a nice easy win at Club Brugge, with Porto there for the taking when the teams meet.

Porto are clearly a famous name in European football although the Portuguese league is modest in terms of strength and the visitors could only manage a 1-1 draw with Copenhagen in their first group game.

Porto have also won just one of their three away games domestically this season will come face-to-face with Islam Slimani whose last act with Sporting Lisbon was to actually score against Porto as part of a 2-1 win.

Slimani scored twice in City’s last home match as they put Burnley to the sword and Leicester should come through this game with flying colours providing they can start defending properly again.
