Last season’s FA Cup winners, Leicester, take on the Premier League champions – Manchester City – in what is set to be a top renewal of the Community Shield.
Crawley have been struggling as of late with no wins in their last 7 and scoring just 2 goals in their last 5 matches. Bradford have won 3 of their last 4 matches and are unbeaten at home since losing to Carlisle on the 5th December.
“I do feel as neither side has registered a win yet both with be playing with some zeal and both sides look likely to net a goal.”
Surprised to see that you can get Gijin at better than evens here. No defeat in 8, albeit perhaps 3 draws in the last four have raised concerns about recent form but they have had tough matches against promotion rivals.
Faltering would leave them under severe pressure with teams such as Scotland and Austria vying with them for those two qualifications spots. But with the steel in midfield of Delaney and Hojberg and that gusto in attack, I can only see one result.
Barcelona will know this is now a different Sevilla and one that won’t simply roll over in the 2nd Leg in Catalonia, as was the case when the clubs met in this competition two years ago.
