Leicester City will face Villarreal at King Power Stadium on Wednesday in a friendly Game.
Leicester City entered this game following a 3-3 draw against Queens Park Rangers in a friendly a few days ago. Goals from veteran striker Charlie Austin, French center-back Yoann Barbet and defender Rob Dickie for Queens Park Rangers were wiped out by goals from young midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Zambian striker Patson Daka and from the Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho for Leicester City.
Villarreal, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to Marseille yesterday in a friendly match. An own goal from young striker Fer Nino and a goal from experienced Frenchman Dimitri Payet secured victory in Marseille. Spain left-back Alberto Moreno scored the consolation goal for Villarreal, who sent off Argentina defender Juan Foyth in the second half.

The recruitment of Leicester City has been very impressive in recent years, and this summer it is no different. Zambian striker Patson Daka and French midfielder Boubakary Soumare are two excellent young players, while left-back Ryan Bertrand, who has joined a free transfer, is a confirmed Premier League player.
Villarreal, on the other hand, have so far managed to keep star center-back Pau Torres, with the 24-year-old being linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United. They have so far signed Algerian central defender Aissa Mandi and Senegal striker Boulaye Dia.
A draw seems like an ideal result.
Prediction: Leicester City 1-1 Villarreal
