James Maddison celebrates scoring during City's only previous visit to Brentford's new home in January 2021.

Leicester have travelled to face Brentford during the previous two seasons – both in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round.

The first of those ties was held at the Bees’ previous home of Griffin Park in January 2020, when a single Kelechi Iheanacho strike was enough to send Brendan Rodgers’ men into the next round.

A year later, the Foxes made their first-ever visit to Brentford Community Stadium and sealed a 3-1 success at the same stage of the 2020/21 competition, thanks to goals from Cengiz Ünder, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison.
