MK Dons – Leicester. Forecast and announcement for the match
On December 20, Stadium MK will host the 1/8 final match of the FA League Cup, in which MK Dons will meet with Leicester. The start of the fight is scheduled for 20:45 European time.
The club has a difficult history and not the best current state. In fact, this is the successor to Wimbledon, which, at the request of the owners, changed its “registration” in 2004. But formally, under the pressure of the fans, they had to renounce the glorious history. And their own successes are extremely modest. The breakthrough could have been last season, when 3rd place in Ligue 1 was taken. But the playoffs for promotion to the Championship were lost, and now the Dons are already on the relegation in the 3rd division. Paradoxically, at the same time he is successful in the League Cup. There he passed already 3 rivals. And okay victory over the same modest “Sutton United” and “Moreham”. But it was also knocked out at 1/32 Watford, and the score 2-0 was issued on the road, in London.
The team started to deflate last season. After years of constant struggle for the Champions League, she was left without a pass to European competition at all. But the real failure was the start of a new draw. And the departure of the leaders, Schmeichel and Fofan, without an adequate replacement, caused understandable anxiety among the fans. For August-September, in 7 rounds, they took only 1 point. And how: they lost a 2-goal lead over Watford at home, and then lost 6 times in a row. But after the holidays, we finally managed to win against Nottingham Forest, and immediately 4-0. And in the last 5 rounds before the long holidays, they beat 4 opponents, except for Manchester City. At the same time, Newport passed in the League Cup, scoring 3 unanswered goals.
The clubs played each other at official level in Ligue 1 in 2008/2009. Leicester then won and drew. He also played a couple of subsequent friendly matches: 2-0 in 2014, 0-0 in 2017.
Bookmakers, as expected, do not believe in MK Dons. It is much weaker, and all attention should be focused on the struggle for survival in League 1. We bet on the victory of Leicester with a handicap of “-1” (odds – 1.7) from Parimatch.
