Our football match prediction:
Sevilla recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Leicester City at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the Champions League last 16, first leg. Los Sevillanos are regarded as favourites to make it to the quarter-finals of the elite competition, but they will have to prove their worth on the field in Tuesday’s football match. Jorge Sampaoli’s troops are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the return leg, but they will have to score in the King Power Stadium clash if they are to advance to the next round. The Foxes are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Sevilla in the second leg. Jamie Vardy has found his goal-scoring touch of late and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. However, considering that los Sevillanos are a very experienced team, we are positive that they are going to book their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Highlighted Player (Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later. The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite. Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
