Our prediction for this match:
After recording four consecutive wins in pre-season, Leicester City played out a 2-2 draw with Rotherham United in their last friendly game. The Foxes now take on Atalanta in their ultimate warm-up game ahead of the start of the new Premier League campaign and we are positive that coach Brendan Rodgers is going to field the best possible side against the Serie A side.
Jamie Vardy will lead the line for Leicester City and we are positive that the experienced attacker is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Orobici, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Swansea City at the weekend, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Brendan Rodgers’ troops. It has to be noted that the game will be played at Leicester City’s home ground King Power Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Jonny Evans):
Originating from Belfast, Jonny Evans is one of the most famous football players from the new generation of the Northern Ireland national team, although numerous injuries prevented the centre-back from showing all he’s got.

During his time at Old Trafford, the defender usually played back up to Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, but made quite a few appearances in important games, including 31 Champions League outings.
