Our match prediction:
Celtic Park will host the match between Celtic and Leicester City. The two teams take on each other in the International Champions Cup and both sides aim to get off to a flying start. The Hoops have already played four warm-up games, with the team sharing the spoils with Celje and Maribor, while beating Sturm Graz and Olimpija. Leicester City, on the other hand, impressed in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, with the team clinching their first ever domestic trophy. Jamie Vardy was the team’s top scorer and the good news for the fans is that the 29-year-old player signed a new deal with the King Power Stadium outfit. The Foxes aim to prove their worth at the International Champions Cup and they are regarded as favourites in Saturday’s football game against Celtic. Taking everything into account, we predict that the Premier League side are going to pick up all three points from the game.
