Aston Villa has done well to get to a two-legged semifinal here, but that is where the run stops.

Leicester City can ensure a trip to the final with a big result here, and the Foxes know they are almost assured of a top four finish in the Premier League at this point. Aston Villa is battling to stay in the top flight, and may sacrifice this cup to do just that.
