LEICESTER NEWS

Claudio Ranieri, the manager who was an architect of English Premier League champion last season, failed to come up with the expectations in 2017. He was sacked after the defeat in Seville, and that was a positive shock for the team - Leicester recorded 6 victories in a row! However, in the last two weeks, their performance level dropped again, and the most of the football analysts feel they don't stand a chance against Atletico Madrid. On the other hand, they were in a similar position against Sevilla. The Spanish team won the first leg by 2-1, but Leicester surprisingly defeated them by 2-0 in the second leg and qualified for the next phase.

ATLETICO MADRID NEWS

Atletico Madrid failed to keep up with Real Madrid and Barcelona in Primera Division for the second time in the last 3 years. They are currently 10 points behind the leaders, and Real Madrid also has a game in hand. It is clear that the race for the title in Spain is over for Atletico Madrid, and they are focused on Champions League. They will try to save the advantage from the first leg, and Diego Simeone is one of the best managers for getting the job done.

SUMMING UP!

Atletico Madrid will try to save their lead from the first leg, and they will be ultra-defensive orientated. A goalless draw is the most likely result in the upcoming match, but the early goal for the hosts can alter the game dramatically.
