Claudio Ranieri has lately been under the pump as the champions of England have been languishing at the bottom half of the table in the Premier League. In fact, they are very close to the relegation zone and are trying hard to stay out of that managing only 21 points in as many as 25 matches. But Leicester City have been in sublime form when it comes to the UEFA Champions League 2016-17. They have lost only one match in the group stage and Ranieri is highly hoping that his boys do keep up that performance in the ‘Round of 16’ match against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League 2016-17.

Sevilla, on the other hand, have been the surprise package in the Spanish La Liga. They are currently in the third spot in the standings just behind league leaders Real Madrid and Barcelona. In the last 7 matches, Sevilla have managed to grab 4 wins one of those coming against mighty Real Madrid. They have lost only one and have drawn twice in those matches. So quite clearly it will be really a huge task for the Foxes to get the better of the home team in the ‘Round of 16’ match in the UEFA Champions League 2016-17.

There are some injury issues that might make both managers worry a bit. But as things stand, both the managers might take the risk to field those players. For Leicester City, Leonardo Ulloa will not be available for selection as he hasn’t traveled to Spain for the match against Sevilla. Also, there are quite a bit of doubt over the fitness of Islam Slimani, but the news has come in that he is likely to make the cut for the playing eleven of tonight’s match against Sevilla. Claudio Ranieri would love to see his players giving their best and pull something out of the match in their favor which might just spark some inspiration into the team which will eventually help them save relegation in the Premier League 2016-17.

Jorge Sampaoli, on the other hand, will perhaps be without the service of center back Nicolas Pareja and it remains to be seen whether he features in the playing eleven or not.
