One of the pairs of 1/8 finals of the Champions League consists of Sevilla, Spain and Leicester, England. The first match will be held in Sevilla on the 22 nd of February and will start at 21:45 (GMT+2).
To tell the truth, this is the weakest pair among all 8 pairs of this season. The winner in this pair will probably end its performance next round. But in the Europe League these teams would be the main favorites. Sevilla has passed the group stage with great difficulty. The second place this club has taken only due to unstable Lion and weak Dinamo Zagreb. Leicester, in its turn, has started this group stage very confidently and by the time of last match against Porto ensured the first place. But still it is not very ethical to lose the last, not very important match with the score 0:5. But judging by the way Leicester is performing in this season , the surprising thing is that the team had managed to get into play off at all. Sevilla has a lot of experience in Euro cups and that is its absolute advantage.
home Sevilla is very strong contrary to away matches. The team of
Sampaoli will do everything possible to win. In our opinion the best
bets on the match Sevilla-Leicester will be:
First Half Sevilla win 1.9
Sevilla win with the handicap (-1,5) 2.13
