FA Cup and Asian Cup previews

Man City host Leicester in their FA Cup replay match. I am not sure what starting eleven that Mancini has in mind for his side, but it has to be good enough to overcome a Leicester team that is really poor on its travels. City are almost a complete squad with all positions filled in with back-ups, so they will be difficult to beat at home even if most of the team is rotated. Man City as draw-no-bet is the recommendation.

In the Asia Cup, South Korea play India. There is no chance that India will get a win or draw in this one. It will only be a matter of how many goals that the Koreans will win by. Goal difference will be of a particularly important matter to them since it will determine if they come top of their group in case Australia beat Bahrain. So South Korea as a win is a recommendation. As regards Australia, I cannot see them getting beaten by Bahrain, so I recommend a draw-no-bet on the Socceroos.

Win: South Korea
Draw-no-bet: Man City, Australia
