Leicester vs Atletico Madrid Prediction and Betting Tips

At King Power Stadium in Leicester, English champions Leicester City FC will attempt to knock out Atletico Madrid for the first time in history. Read our betting previews and make the right decisions for UEFA Champions League betting this week.

Leicester City faced Crystal Palace during the week within the Premier League clash; however, they dropped the 0:2 lead and only earned a point against Sam Allardyce’s men. The Premier League champions won all four matches at King Power Stadium this season in UEFA Champions League, scoring six goals in the process while allowing only one. The English are significantly less experienced than their opponents in the European clashes – the tie against Sevilla was their only meeting between the Spanish opposition aside from the past ties with Atletico Madrid. Leicester could make their appearance in their first penalty shoot-out in UEFA competitions.

Atletico Madrid will be looking to reach the semi-finals for the second year in a row, as they were beaten in the final by Los Blancos 5-3 on penalties in the previous campaign. They reached quarter-finals for the fourth season in a row, and their overall record in European competition last eight stands at 5 wins and 3 losses. In 21 previous Champions League away matches, Atletico won 10 while drawing 5 outings. This season, they won against PSV and FC Rostov 0:1, but they were defeated in Munich with the same result. A year ago, Diego Simeone lost the first leg against Barcelona 2-0; Atletico bounced back in the second, winning 2-0 and progressing to the next round.

Atletico and Leicester are in their third tie between them – previous two were won by the Spanish side. In the first leg played at Vicente Calderon, Diego Simeone’s men were dominating throughout the 90 minutes, not allowing a single shot on target by Leicester’s players. Antoine Griezmann was the sole scorer as he converted the penalty in the 28th minute.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare says: “We know what we have to do and we can't sit back for 90 minutes because we need to score. We will start as underdogs but we're comfortable with that.”

Atlético Madrid coach Diego Simeone: “Leicester are in decent form and in the last six or seven games they have been back to doing what they did last season. It will not be too different from the game in Spain – a hard game with a narrow scoreline, decided on small details.”

The main referee for second leg match between Foxes and Atletico is Gianluca Rocchi from Italy. All of us know what is Italian football and how they like to play. And for sure these two teams like to play aggressive and strong so we expect a true football fight in England. Assistant referees on this match will be Elenito Di Liberatore and Mauro Tonolini, while fourth official is Riccardo Di Fiore.
