Leicester City vs Sevilla Match Betting Preview

Leicester City square off against Sevilla to contest the second leg of the Round of 16 Champions League encounter on Tuesday and it will be interesting to see if the English champions are able to pull off an upset on the night.

Leicester City Match Betting News

Leicester City took the very unpopular decision of sacking title winning manager Claudio Ranieri recently but strangely enough, the decision has been vindicated for now as caretaker Craig Shakespeare has guided the Foxes to two consecutive victories since.

Shakespeare has been handed the job till the end of the season but the 53-year-old still has a tough job on his hands to win over the fans after accusations that he played a key role in Ranieri’s downfall.

The Champions League second leg encounter against Sevilla on Tuesday will be a very good opportunity for Shakespeare to prove his worth and it has to be said that Leicester do have the ability to cause an upset over the Spanish high flyers. Molla Wague and Kasper Schmeichel are the injury concerns for the Foxes ahead of the game.

Sevilla Match Betting News

Sevilla have been transformed into a side capable of winning the title by the brilliant Jorge Sampaoli this season and Los Blanquirrojos are providing tough challenge to the duo of Barcelona and Real Madrid for the title.

However, Sevilla missed out on a wonderful opportunity to move into top spot in the La Liga table following consecutive draws against minnows Deportivo Alaves and Leganes, and they do not head into the Champions League encounter against Leicester at their scintillating best.

Sevilla hold a delicate lead over Leicester but they will have to be wary of the rejuvenated English champions and the Andalusians will need to play well on Tuesday in order to earn progression into the next round. Benoit Tremoulinas, Carlos Fernández Luna and Michael Krohn-Dehli are out injured for the clash.

Leicester City vs Sevilla Match Prediction

Leicester City gave themselves a very good chance with a late away goal in the first leg but getting a positive result over Sevilla will evidently not be an easy task.

While Leicester are expected to put up a good fight, Sevilla have enough quality about them to claim the victory at the King Power Stadium.
