Match: Barcelona vs. Leicester City Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Wednesday, 03 August, 2016
Start time: 19:00 UK
Barcelona and Leicester will play a game from the International Champions Cup in Solna, Sweden.
Barcelona played only one friendly game till now against Celtic on 30 July and won with 3:1. After Leicester Barca will play one more match from the tournament again against a team from England – Liverpool on Wembley on 06 August. The new top players till now for Blaugrana are André Gomes from Valencia for £29.75m, Samuel Umtiti from Olympique Lyon for £21.25m and Lucas Digne from PSG for £14.03m. They also bought back Denis Suárez from Villarreal CF for only £2.76m.
Leicester City played two games from the tournament so far: 1:1 against Celtic and The Foxes won with penalties. The second match was against PSG and they lost with 4:0. The biggest transfer for Leicester so far was the sale of N’Golo Kanté to Chelsea for £30.43m. The team bought Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow for £16.58m, Nampalys Mendy for £13.18m, the goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler from Hannover 96 for £2.98m and with free transfer the centre-back Luis Hernández from Sporting Gijón.
Even though Leicester played more games than Barcelona which played only once the difference in classes is obvious like the match of The Foxes against PSG showed. I expect Barca to win with at least two goals and continue their winning streak in International Champions Cup.
Tip: Barcelona -1.5 Asian Handicap @ 1.825 with Bet365
