Champions League

Round of 16, 1st leg

22.02.2017

Bet: Match Handicap -2 Goal Sevilla

Sevilla is a big surprise of La Liga this season. Currently the team goes third in the standings just two points behind Barcelona and three behind Real Madrid. Such solid performance was unexpected for sports betting experts as Sevillistas was headed by a new coach Jorge Sampaoli since the beginning of the season. Moreover, the team is in very good mood in recent three matches taking seven points out of nine without conceding a single goal. So, it’s Los Nervionenses who are the obvious favorites at betting odds of 1.40.

At the same time Leicester City is considered to be a complete underdog at betting odds of 8.50. And the Draw is evaluated by 4.50. The recent team results are entirely miserable. While placing bets you need to remember that The Foxes have lost five Premier League matches in a row with the total score 0-12. The team has huge problems both in attacking line and defense. Even on Saturday in Fifth Round Proper of FA Cup Claudio Ranieri’s side was beaten by Millwall from League One.

Sports betting experts also admitted that Leicester City has no need to progress in Champions League. Its main task for the rest of the season is to avoid the relegation from Premier League. And it is despite the champion status. So it’s possible that Claudio Ranieri will use the reserve line-up just to provide rest for the main players that are not in good mood. In this case gamblers may try such betting option as Match Handicap -1 Goal Sevilla at odds of 2.05 or even Match Handicap -2 Goal Sevilla at odds of 3.75.

As to goal performance there are big problems with Leicester attack so punters may choose such bets as “Both Teams To Score: No” at odds of 1.65. Additionally, two strikers Islam Slimani and Leonardo Ulloa will be sidelined for The Foxes. So, alternatively you can take “Teams To Score: Sevilla Only” at odds of 2.05. Just to remind: Los Nervionenses won two home games out of three as Leicester City took four points out of nine from away matches. Moreover, Sevilla managed not to concede a single goal in two home UCL battles.
