Atletico Madrid vs Leicester – Champions League
Wednesday 12th April 19:45, Vicente Calderón
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Premier League champions Leicester City are the only English team remaining in Europe’s premier club competition, and after beating Sevilla in the last round the Foxes should have plenty of self belief ahead of their trip to Madrid.
Atletico are the huge favourites to win this first leg, but if Leicester can keep the scoreline to a reasonable level and manage an away goal then back in England the Foxes could cause a major upset.
Both teams have been in really good form of late with Atletico unbeaten in their last six matches following a 1-1 draw with rivals Real at the weekend, while Leicester’s run of six straight wins under their new manager came to an end at Goodison Park as Everton won 4-2.
Questions are being asked about Leicester’s ability to defend against Atletico’s attack, but for me this was never the issue as I’m sure the Foxes will concede tomorrow, but I also fancy them to score.
This game promises to be exciting and I’ve gone with the bookies and backed a home win. I think we will see both teams score and with that over 2.5 goals, of which I have Griezmann down as the first player to get on the scoreboard.

Atletico Madrid vs Leicester Stats
These two sides have obviously never met before in European football, so tomorrow marks a very historic day.
Leicester still possess that unknown quality to the sides from outside England and that has shown in the Champions League results this season. Even after being 2-1 down after the Sevilla game the Foxes were able to turn the tie around at home and they will be aiming for similar success tomorrow.
Atletico are having a great season though and if they can score enough goals tomorrow then the return leg might bare little importance as the tie could already be over.
I can’t wait to watch this one and just hope its as exciting as I think it will be.
