Ipswich’s slip up in the ‘Old Farm’ derby on Saturday gives Leicester the chance to open up a 3-point lead at the top of the Championship when they take on Birmingham City tonight.
Blue’s boss Wayne Rooney has been talking down the side-show that sees him face Jamie Vardy’s side for the first time since the pair’s wives were embroiled in the Wagatha Christie trial. Unfortunately Vardy misses out due to injury so the headlines will need to be written by someone else tonight.
Rooney guided Birmingham to their first away win in his tenure, a 1-0 triumph at Cardiff City but the Foxes present a different challenge altogether.
The Foxes have been excellent away from home under Enzo Maresca. They’ve picked up 25 points from a possible 30 and look solid enough at 3/5. They’ve scored two or more in seven of ten on the road and can be backed to so again whilst winning at 20/23.
We’re at the semi-final stage of the slightly bonkers FIFA Club World Cup where Copa Libertadores holders, Fluminense, join the competition alongside Manchester City.
Egypt’s Al Ahly lie in wait for the Brazilians after they saw off an Al Ittihad side that included the star-studded trio of Karim Benzema, Ngolo Kante and Fabinho.
Al Ahly have traditionally fallen short when up against European or South American opposition, as have most African representatives in the competition, so the 10/11 on Fluminense who are aiming to be crowned World Club Champions for the first time and to take the trophy back to Brazil for the first time since Corinthians’ success back in 2012. The match is live on TNT Sport 2 at 6.00pm
