Champions League – Leicester vs Sevilla Prediction and Betting Tips. In the second leg of the 1/8 finals in Champions League, Leicester City host Sevilla at The King Power Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Leicester vs Sevilla.
Leicester started their first season in Champions League very good and they believe that can show more in this competition. Last season champions of Premier League finished the group phase at the top of the table and got good opponent in the 1/8 finals. Sevilla beat them in the first leg 2-1, but Leicester can be satisfied, because team from Spain had a lead of 2-0. Their striker Jamie Vardy hit the net for the final 2-1 and give his team hope that can make something in the second leg and try to eliminate Sevilla. Home side don’t shine this season in Premier League. They are near the relegation zone, so there are possibility that they relegate from the league which won after only one season. Leicester sacked Claudio Ranieri, so now the club is in the hands of Mike Stowell and Craig Shakespeare, and they are doing good job so far. In the last two league games, they beat Liverpool 3-1 and Hull City, so they are optimistic and believe that can make another good performance.
Sevilla play fantastic this season in all competitions. In LaLiga, they are standing at the 3rd position and they are on a good way to reach the place which leads in the Champions league next season. Sevilla had very tough group phase, but they have managed to reach the knockout phase, so their primary goal is to eliminate Leicester City and qualify in the Quarter-finals. Visitors have active result from the first leg, but they know that the match against team from England will be very hard. Their coach Jorge Sampaoli is doing great job with his team this season, but he’s a little bit concerned about this game. Sevilla failed to beat the last to games in Spanish football league, so if they want to reach the next phase of Champions League, they have to do their best in order to avoid defeat. Visitors are unbeaten in the last 8 matches in all competitions, but they know how to play matches like these, so they are still favorites to go through.
Home side miss Mendy and Wague, while on the other side, visitors will be without Trémoulina, Vietto and Carriço.
