Burton Albion vs Leicester City match preview

These two teams are located just 27 miles apart, but have been operating in different stratospheres for the majority of their histories.

Leicester City are back in the Championship this season, and made a winning start of Sunday, beating another geographical rival Coventry City.

The Foxes had to come from behind to achieve this, but Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s brace at the King Power was enough to take the points.

So now, will Enzo Maresca’s team reach the second round of the Carabao Cup?

Down in League One, Burton Albion began their season on Saturday with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Blackpool, easily defeated at Bloomfield Road.

The Brewers got all the way to the League Cup semi-finals as recently as 2019, but are likely to fall at the first hurdle, with Leicester overwhelming favourites to prevail at Pirelli Stadium.
