LEICESTER have done well to keep their Champions League hopes alive but could rue not scoring in Spain last week.
A disputed penalty gave Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win and I’m sure they’ll progress if they score at the King Power tonight.
Atletico have conceded just two goals in nine games – to Real Madrid and Sevilla – so are unlikely to shift three to the English champions.
Leicester’s best chance will be to win 1-0 and take the tie to extra time but with the quality of Antoine Griezmann and others they’ll be hard pushed to keep a clean sheet – and remember centre-half Robert Huth is banned.
An Atletico strike will leave the Foxes needing three and Atletico have shipped three goals just once this year to Las Palmas.
Jamie Vardy has refound his form under Craig Shakespeare and is 2-1 at Ladbrokes to net.
But I tipped Griezmann to score first in Madrid and prefer him again. He is 4-1 at Paddy Power to break the deadlock and 6-4 to net.
Tonight’s other tie sees Bayern Munich trying to perform mission impossible by overcoming a 2-1 deficit away to Real Madrid who have won their last 10 home matches in the Champions League.
Bayern will be minus banned Javi Martinez and could be without Mats Hummel and Jerome Boateng and if all three miss the tie they’ll struggle to contain the hosts. Robert Lewandowski will be back though after missing the first leg.
The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were rested at the weekend although Bale won’t make the game.
Ronaldo’s double in Germany took his Euro tally to 100 and he is 22-23 at 888sport to net again.
