UEFA Champions League 2016-17: Leicester City vs Sevilla Match Preview
Leicester City have seemingly come back on track after their Premier League winning manager of the previous campaign got sacked a few days back. And the results are quite strangley showing up in the domestic league where they beat Liverpool at the King Power Stadium with a comprehensive scoreline of 3-1. They followed it up with yet another convincing 3-1 win against Hull City and are suddenly looking much more dangerous than they were when they lost out 2-1 to Sevilla in the first leg of the ‘Round of 16’ in the UEFA Champions League 2016-17.
Sevilla, on the other hand, has managed to stay unbeaten in all competitions since the beginning of the month of February. They have last lost a match in the month of January when they lost 3-1 away from home to Espanyol. And this unbeaten streak includes a crucial first leg win over Leicester City. It will be a difficult task for Sevilla to visit King Power Stadium and go back with a big win. And it will really test their defensive skills as Leicester City will come at them at full throttle.
A 1-0 win for Leicester City will suffice as they have the crucial away goal which Jamie Vardy scored when they visited the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Spain. Vardy and co will be upbeat as the belief is back in the win and that will do them a world of good. A win in this match will also provide the Foxes with a real morale boost that will help them fight relegation in the Premier League 2016-17.
