Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers lock horns at the King Power Stadium for a place in the FA Cup quarterfinals on Tuesday (February 28). The Rovers head into the midweek clash on a run of three league wins and will look to continue in the same vein.

Leicester were left hovering just three points above the Premier League relegation zone following a 1-0 loss at home to leaders Arsenal on Saturday (February 25). That followed a 3-0 humbling against Manchester United on February 19, which snapped their three-game winning streak. The Foxes’ luck appears to have run out, but they set out to secure another FA Cup quarterfinal appearance following successive 1-0 wins over Gillingham and Walsall in the first two rounds.

Leicester City vs Blackburn Rovers Team News

James Maddison’s disrupted campaign continued at the weekend, as the pivotal Leicester playmaker was ruled out of the defeat to Arsenal after falling ill overnight, and it is unclear whether he will fight off the affliction in time for the cup clash.

Ryan Bertrand, James Justin and Jonny Evans represent a trio of known injury absentees for the fifth round, and Rodgers is also expecting to be without Youri Tielemans, who suffered a “nasty” ankle problem against Arsenal but played on as Leicester had used up all of their substitutions.

Having shown no mercy to Walsall with a strong starting XI in the fourth round, Rodgers should adopt a similar approach here, but changes could still be on the cards as Boubakary Soumare, Nampalys Mendy and Patson Daka aim to return.

Leicester City vs Blackburn Rovers Lineups

Leicester City:

Iversen; Pereira, Amartey, Faes, Thomas; Soumare, Mendy; Tete, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes; Daka

Blackburn Rovers:

Pears; Rankin-Costello, Carter, Hyam, Brittain; Travis, Buckley; Dolan, Szmodics, Hedges; Gallagher

Leicester City vs Blackburn Rovers Odds

We say: Leicester City 2-1 Blackburn Rovers (a.e.t)

It is not difficult to envisage an in-form Blackburn putting their more esteemed opponents to the sword on Tuesday, but the Foxes gave Man United several scares last week and could have easily come away from their clash against Arsenal with a point on another day.

Extra time may be required to settle this intriguing battle, but we still have faith in Rodgers’s side to return to their goalscoring ways and book themselves another quarter-final date, as Blackburn are left to rue their depleted attacking ranks.

Leicester City vs Blackburn Rovers Stats

Leicester City averaged 3.25 goals per game in Premier League this season, which is the second-highest average of all teams. That being said, Blackburn averaged 2.24 goals per game in Championship, but we still believe that this game will go over 2.5 total goals.
