Full time!
The final whistle blows as Leicester defeat Burton 3-1.

Iheanacho and Tielemans gave the Foxes a 2-0 lead at the break in what looked like a comfortable outing.

Burton said otherwise in the second half after Boyce halved the defecit but a late James Maddison strike sealed Leiecster's place in the quarter-finals.

Before the Leicester goal, Burton made two changes.

David Templeton replaced Oliver Sarkic while Joe Sbarra came on for Ryan Edwards.

90' Gray rounds the keeper and directs the ball towards goal but the Burton defence recover well to clear.

Could have been four!

GOAL! Burton 1-3 Leicester
89' MADDISON CLINCHES IT!

More great work from Gray on the wing and he picks out Maddison with time and space in the box and the midfielder slots the ball in the bottom left corner to surely put his side in the quarter-finals!

88' Choudhury is replaced by Wilfred Ndidi as Leicester introduce fresh legs in the midfield to see off the game.

Choudhury is clapped off by the entire stadium as Burton remember him fondly from his time there

85' Burton work the ball well from left to right as Sarkic finds himself one-on-one with Ward but the Burton player skies his shot in what was the best opportunity the home side have had to draw themselves level.
82' Dennis Praet makes way for James Maddison as Leicester look to kill this game in the final stages.
77' Barnes gets on the end of a Gray cross to slot home but the linesman flagged for offside to mute celebrations.

The Leicester fans release a blue smoke bomb in celebration for a goal that was ruled out. That's a bit awkward.....

76' A great corner delivered in by Leicester found Evans and the centre back was denied on the line.
74' What a save Danny Ward!

The Leicester keeper saves a first time shot by Fraser expertly to keep his side in front of this match.

Leicester have managed to settle the game back down again as they enjoy their own chances infront of goal.

The Foxes have upped the tempo in the search of the goal that would kill the game off and the home fans can sense that as the away fans find their voice once more.

69' Albrighton is denied once again by O'Hara who is having an impressive game between the sticks.
68' A Gray shot is deflected wide for a corner after being released by Fuchs.

The delivery is too close to O'Hara and the keeper collects comfortably.

Demarai Gray has taken the mantle of striker in the absence of a natural number 9.
66' Kelechi Iheanacho is replaced by Harvey Barnes in Leicester's first change of the match.
63' Burton continue to threaten but their latest shot was always rising.

Leicester need to resist this pressure and kill the game off as Burton look fully capable to get back into this game...

60' Albrighton disposses Wallace and drives into the box but was denied by O'Hara before the angle beat the winger who fired the ball into the side netting.

End to end stuff here

57' Choudhury off the line!

A glancing header from a Burton corner is directed towards goal and the Leicester midfielder clears it off the line to deny Sarkic.

Could have been level there and Burton are the team on top right now!

The atmosphere has improved dramatically since the goal and the game recieves a new lease of life.

Both teams are up for this!

54' Fuchs chests the ball down after Leicester's most recent corner was cleared but the Austrian fires his shot into the Blue Army behind the goal.
GOAL! Burton 1-2 Leicester
52' BOYCE!

Burton are back in this! A powerful Boyce shot rifled through two Leicester defenders and Ward saw the shot late. The keeper got a hand to the shot but could not prevent it from rippling the back of the net.

Game on!

47' Praet was released by Iheanacho and the Belgian beats the keeper with his shot but also the goal post.

Inches away from his first Leicester goal!

Second half!
We're back underway!

Lloyd Dyer comes on in place of Hutchinson to the delight of all four corners of the stadium.

Half time!
It's half time at the Pirelli Stadium as the Premier League side boast a 2-0 lead against the League One side.

Burton's high press made the opening stages of the match uncomfortable for the Foxes but it is that high press and high line that became the Brewers' downfall.

Iheanacho gave his side the lead in the 7th minute with a side-footed effort that was created by Tielemans, before the Belgian notched himself in the 20th minute to seemingly take the game away from Burton.

The home side threatened Leicester's goal in the final stages of the half through good work of Hutchinson and a shot by Broadhead that Ward was equal to and the whistle arguably came at a bad time for them.

It's Burton 0-2 Leicester

45' Danny Ward is called into action once again from a Broadhead shot and the rebound could not be converted by Burton who were pushing to half the defecit before half time.
There is one added minute of this first half...
44' Hutchinson finds himself in in a great position and his cross causes all sorts of problems and leads to a smart Danny Ward save to turn the ball wide.

Great play from the Foxes keeper who has had a relatively quiet evening so far before then.

Burton have only conceded two goals at home all season before this match.

Leicester might damage that record substantially if the match folows the same pattern as it has done...

36' Quick feet from Albrighton gives the winger space as he tries to release Iheanacho but the ball was not as he hoped and the attack breaks down.
34' Burton's high line is allowing Leicester to get in behind nearly everytime they attack.

With the pace that City posess upfront, the high line is not the best of ideas.....

32' Brayford takes no chances from a Gray cross and concedes the corner.

Albrighton's delivery leaves a lot to be desired however and Burton clear with ease.

30' Leicester counter quickly after winning the ball back and Iheanacho's drag-back finds Gray but the winger fires over.

The away side look threatening everytime they venture forward.....

Leicester fans will be loving how often they are seeing this celebration!

Leicester's second goal came in a crucial part of the game as Burton started making their own progress going forward.

Clinical from the Foxes, who are scoring for fun in recent weeks.

 

GOAL! Burton 0-2 Leicester
20' TIELEMANS!

Dennis Praet finds his countryman in the box and Tielemans scores his fourth goal in four games for club and country.

Might be tough for Burton to comeback from this one...

18' Burton respond well to going 1-0 down.

Boyce had a shot blocked by a diving Morgan and Wallace's follow up narrowly missed the target.

13' Christian Fuchs sends a great ball over the top for Gray to chase but the winger's touch lets him down and the ball runs away from him and into the arms of the Burton keeper.
The Leicester fans reply to the early goal by chanting "Wembley" and "we want 10"...
GOAL! Burton 0-1 Leicester
7' IHEANACHO!

Tielemans was played through due to great play by Gray, and the Belgian squares the ball to Iheanacho to slot home.

Leicester lead 1-0.

5' Burton go straight to the other end of the pitch and win their own corner.

Edwards swings the corner in the box but nothing comes of it.

4' A Tielemans through ball sends Iheanacho away but the Nigerian drags his shot wide from a difficult angle.

Close.

3' Leicester win the first corner of the match through Iheanacho but Fuchs' delivery from the set piece was dealt with easily by the Burton defence

Thoughts for the match
Leicester will be the overwhelming favourites this match following their exploits in the Premier League this season, but Burton are not a team to take lightly.

The Brewers knocked out top-tier opposition in Bournemouth in the previous round and will fancy their chances tonight.

If the home team can grab the first goal of the game, the pressure will be put on Leicester to level the scores, which could play in Burton's hands on the counter-attack. 

It is a different Leicester team to the 11 that dismantled Southampton, as Brendan Rodgers makes nine changes, and if the players do not gel, then a tough Burton team backed by a stadium full of fans will be a difficult opposition to face.

Leicester team news
Leicester have no new injuries within their squad to be concerned about.

The Foxes could make a number of changes to their last starting 11 to give players such as Danny Ward, James Justin and Christian Fuchs game time.

Burton team news
Lucas Akins will be missing for the home side after picking up too many bookings in the competition so far.

Steven Quinn will be available for the match after reacting well to playing time on the weekend following his injury, while Richard Nartey will be assessed before the game due to a tight hamstring.

Ward on Burton...
Leicester goalkeeper Danny Ward has been wary ahead of the game to not replicate a performance than that of the 2-1 loss to Newport.

Speaking to LCFC TV, the Welshman stated: “[It will be] another tough game, they’ll be right at it. 

“I’ve played there before, it’s a small, intimidating ground and they’ll make it difficult for us, but we know what job we’ve got to go there and do and hopefully, we’ll produce another good performance."

He added: “You can’t take anyone for granted. We saw it ourselves for example in the FA Cup last year.

“Every team has got their own agenda, and if you’re in a competition, you want to go as far as you can and ultimately win it.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re a Premier League team or in League 1 or League 2, you want to go as far as you can.”

Fraser on Leicester...
Burton midfielder Scott Fraser has voiced his excitement about playing a top-three Premier League side.

Speaking to Burton Albion, he stated: “It is a chance for us to show that we can step up and play against the players that are at a higher level than we are at the minute. Obviously for us younger players, it is the level that we are hoping that we can get to.”

He added: "I’ve watched them a few times this season, away to Chelsea, Manchester United and we watched the game on Friday night; they’re a very good team with very good players and a very good manager, so we will be expecting a tough game.

"But when big clubs come to our place, we fancy ourselves.”

Leicester form
Unlike Burton, Leicester were on fire in front if goal in their last match, scoring nine times against Southampton in what is now the highest ever away victory in the English top-flight in its 131-year history, as well as the joint highest Premier League win - Manchester United's 9-0 thrashing of Ipswich Town back in 1995.

They also became the second team in Premier League history to lead by five goals after Manchester City achieved the feat in 2010 against Burnley, and the second team in the Premier League's history to have two players score a hattrick in the same match, after Jermaine Pennant and Robert Pires notched three each in Arsenal's victory against Southampton in 2003.

Burton form
Burton come into the match off the back of a goalless draw with 10-man Blackpool.

The Brewers managed 18 shots in the match but could only direct three of them on target, so they will be hoping to have their shooting boots on against Leicester.

Last meeting between the sides
The two teams last met in a pre-season friendly ahead of the 2017/18 season and it was Burton who came out victorious.

The Brewers took the lead in the 17th minute courtesy of a Hope Akpan header that found the bottom corner, before Lucas Akins doubled his side's lead on 29 minutes.

Harry Maguire's first goal for the Foxes halved the deficit, but Craig Shakespeare's could not complete the comback and sank to a 2-1 defeat.

Welcome!
Hello and welcome to VAVEL UK's live coverage of Burton Albion vs Leicester City in the Carabao Cup's round of 16.

Leicester's last game saw them put nine past Southampton and against a lower league side in Burton, they will fancy their chances.

Burton on the other hand have had their fair share of success in the League Cup, reaching the semi-finals last season after a number of upsets, and will be looking to earn another scalp in the competition.

But which way will it go?

Kick-off at the Pirelli Stadium is due on Tuesday at 19:45pm.
