Our football match prediction:
Hong Kong Stadium will host Wednesday’s football game between Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion. The Foxes failed to defend their Premier League trophy last season, but they managed to secure the top flight survival and nothing else matters. Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez have yet to leave the club and all eyes will be on the duo when Craig Shakespeare’s men take on the Baggies in the opening match of their Premier League Asia Trophy campaign. West Bromwich Albion suffered a 2-1 loss to Slavia Prague in their first warm-up game, with Ireland international James McClean scoring for the Baggies. We predict that both coaches will use Wednesday’s friendly to test as many players as possible, but regardless of which footballers will be deployed in the starting line-ups, there is every chance both sides will find the net in the Hong Kong Stadium clash.

After playing amateur football in his homeland France, Allan Nyom began his professional career at Arles-Avignon. The pacey full back made 37 appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 season and at the end of the campaign he signed a deal with Serie A side Udinese. However, given the great collaboration between Udinese and Granada, he was immediately sent on loan to the Estadio Nuevo los Carmenes outfit. Granada finished the 2009/2010 season in top position in the Segunda Division and, as a result, they secured automatic promotion to the Spanish top flight. Allan Nyom established himself as a first-team regular and it has to be noted that he made 32 appearances for los Granadinos in the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign.
