The last matches of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 will be this third week of March, on tuesday 14th. We already lived the week before the epic 6-1 comeback of FC Barcelona after having lost 4-0 against PSG, it was something incredible, a lifetime memory. But this week, 2 of the last 4 games are very interesting, especially for punters.
The matches that interest us are Juventus vs. Porto in Italy, and the second leg of Leicester City (EPL champion) vs Sevilla at King Power Stadium.
Leicester City Vs. Seville in England
The current champion of the Premier League receives at home one of the most dangerous Spanish teams of the moment. Sevilla already won against Leicester at home, but it was only by 1 goal, the match ended 2-1 in favor of the spanish team. That difference of a single goal gives a much clearer advantage to Leicester City, they should only score a pair of goals to move to the next round. It's not such a difficult task, but Leicester has the advantage of being at home, they have a new manager and they know how Sevilla plays.
The spanish team knows that if Leicester City score 1 goal, things will get very complicated. Leicester has already won at home in Champions League matches, last season they eliminated a couple of major teams.
Before losing to Sevilla 2-1, Leicester City had already received a strong beating at Porto's home, losing 5-0 after having won 1-0 at Porto in Week Two of the Champions League. But things are not so bad for Leicester, despite not having many recent wins at home in the current season of the Champions League (1-0 Porto, 1-0 Kobenhavn, 2-1 Club Brugge), they are a team with aspirations to move to the next round, especially after the departure of manager Claudio Ranieri.
Things have improved a lot following the departure of Ranieri in the Premier League, Leicester City has won two major matches against Liverpool 3-1 and Hull City 3-1, both matches served to end a painful streak without goals or wins in the first EPL weeks of 2017.
The Best Bets for Round 16
All the new energy that Leicester City has will be of great help against Sevilla. The home team can easily keep the Spanish team against the wall and win the match. Leicester City +0.75 with 1.57 odds.
