Our football match prediction:
Against all odds, Leicester City eliminated Sevilla in the last 16 of the Champions League, but the Premier League champions will have a much bigger fish to fry in the double-header against Atletico Madrid. The Foxes have been producing outstanding performances under new coach Craig Shakespeare, but beating Atletico Madrid at Estadio Vicente Calderon. Leicester City, though, have been anything but impressive on the road in the Champions League this season and that is the main reason why away win should not be considered. Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, were having their ups and downs in the first half of the season, but they have been producing scintillating showings in all competitions in 2017 and give their fantastic home record in the Champions League, we predict that Diego Simeone’s men will emerge triumphant in the first leg. Atletico did well to share the spoils with Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu at the weekend and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of Wednesday’s football game.
