Leicester v Sevilla

Published by on March 13, 2017

Craig Shakespeare is now officially in charge of Leicester until the end of the season, and he’ll be hoping his appointment can continue their recent revival.

The Champions League last-16 first leg in Sevilla proved to be the final straw for Claudio Ranieri, who was sacked after that 2-1 defeat.

Ironically, the result has put the Foxes in a pretty good position to qualify, as they have a vital away goal.

Even so, Sevilla have only failed to score once in their last 13 games, so it’s likely they’ll get one of their own.

Recommended bet: Sevilla to win 1-0, 2-0, or 2-1 at 5/2

Recommended bet: Wissam Ben Yedder to score first at 9/2

Ben Yedder has scored 15 goals in 30 games at Sevilla this season, and they’ll be looking for an early goal to burst Leicester’s bubble.

Riyad Mahrez will be key for the hosts. The Algerian scored a crucial goal in the 3-1 win over Hull City and that suggests he’s got his confidence back.

Just imagine Leicester in the Champions League quarter-finals. Is it too good to be true?
