Both of these teams enjoyed big wins last weekend and our tipster expects the goals to flow when Craig Shakespeare's side meet Pep Guardiola's men
This time last year, Leicester City were looking forward to taking their place in the Champions League for the first time in their history following their remarkable Premier League title triumph.
Domestic success has eluded them this season, but the Foxes may still play a significant role in determining which teams will qualify for the Champions League when the league campaign concludes later this month.
On Saturday afternoon, Craig Shakespeare's side will travel to take on Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in what promises to be an explosive encounter at Etihad Stadium.
Leicester had gone five games without a win in the Premier League when these rivals last met, but the Foxes found their form in spectacular style as Jamie Vardy's hat-trick helped the Premier League champions to a sensational 4-2 win against Guardiola's team.
The men from Manchester were magnificent last weekend, enjoying an emphatic 5-0 win against Sam Allardyce's Crystal Palace and Guardiola will be hoping for a repeat performance from his players when Leicester provide the opposition.
The hosts are 1/4 (1.25) favourites with dabblebet to pick up another three points here, while the same firm go 5/1 (6.0) that both sides are forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
The Foxes have endured a difficult campaign but back-to-back Premier League wins against West Bromwich Albion and Watford respectively have seen Shakespeare's side move into the top half of the table.
It is worth noting, too, that Leicester have lost just two of their 10 Premier League matches since Shakespeare took up the reins from Claudio Ranieri back in February; the Foxes can be backed at 11/1 (12.0) with dabblebet to do the double over the men from Manchester in the Premier League.
Both of these teams kept a clean sheet last weekend, but a low-scoring encounter seems unlikely and, indeed, dabblebet offer just 4/11 (1.36) that there are more than two goals scored when this rivalry is renewed. The same firm go just 8/11 (1.73) that there are goals at both ends.
Both of these sides are, arguably, at their best when going forward and, so, there is plenty of potential for the goals to flow again on Saturday afternoon.
The 10/11 (1.91) quote from dabblebet for more than three goals to be scored when these teams meet carries plenty of appeal, for the selection would have landed in all but one of the last five matches between the teams in Manchester, as well as in both of the last two meetings between the sides in the Premier League.
Over 3.5 goals at 10/11 (1.91) for a 2pt stake with dabblebet
