Leicester City will be looking for another win that will take them another step closer to a return to the English Premier League when they host Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

The Foxes needed to show a reaction to their fans after suffering their first relegation in nine years last season and they have done just that. Enzo Maresca's side sit on top of the tree in the Championship and have a massive eleven-point gap separating them from second-placed Southampton.

Sheffield Wednesday meanwhile are among the two worst teams in the English second division this season. Only seven points separate the Owls from the bottom of the table and they also have the second-worst away record in this division this season. However, Danny's men will be buoyed by Saturday's win over Birmingham City, which ended their six-game winless streak in all competitions.

Leicester City vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Leicester City's attack has been intimidating in recent weeks, scoring at least three goals in five of their last six games. There is room for improvement in defence though, as the Foxes finished just two of their last eight Championship games without conceding.

Sheffield Wednesday did manage to keep a clean sheet last time out, but that was a very rare occurrence. Danny Röhl's side managed to finish just three of their last nine outings without conceding and shipped exactly four goals in two of the last three.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
