Leicester v Sevilla: Can the Foxes pull off a famous victory?

| 13.03.2017

It was Claudio Ranieri’s final gift to Leicester – a crucial 2-1 result against Sevilla in the Champions League. Now the Foxes are entering a new era, but can they complete the job that the Tinkerman started?

The argument over away goals will run and run, but for now you’ve got to fancy Leicester support the idea, knowing that 1-0 win would see Craig Shakespeare’s charges through to the last eight.

It’s unlikely to be that simple however, and the odds suggest as much.

The Foxes are the outsiders at 9/4 to win the match in 90 minutes, and 11/4 to progress.

Jorge Sampaoli’s Sevilla are 11/10 for victory in the 90, and strong odds-on favourites to make the Quarter-Finals at 1/4.

With the scoreline finely poised from the first leg however, Sevilla could use an away goal to kill the tie, and both teams to score looks assured at 8/13.

And over 2.5 goals looks good too at 8/11.

Jamie Vardy netted the crucial away goal over in Spain, and the England international is 13/2 to bag the opener and get the reigning Premier League champions up and running.

And though he isn’t capturing the heights of last season in England, Riyad Mahrez is still doing the business in Europe.

The Algerian ace has four goals from six Champions League games this term, and 9/1 says he nets first with 3/1 available anytime.

The man with the most goals for either side this term however is Wissam Ben Yedder. The former Toulouse ace is joint-favourite to break the deadlock at 9/2 with what would be his 17th of the campaign.

Leicester weathered the storm at times in the first leg, but will that give them the confidence to finish the job and claim a famous European victory?
