European Pedigree

This would appear to be a perfect situation for Diego Simeone's Atletico as they will relish the chance to hit their hosts on the break and it is telling that the Spanish side have won their past sixteen ties in UEFA competition after winning the first leg at home.

The Madrid outfit are experienced hands in this knockout format as they are making their fourth successive appearance in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and they are bidding to reach the semi-finals for a third time.

The visitors are 21/20 for victory this week (Bet 365) but they will be wary of a Leicester side that has already stunned Spanish opposition as the Foxes overturned a 2-1 first leg deficit to beat Sevilla 2-0 in the second leg during the last-sixteen, with Leicester 29/10 to win or 5/2 to draw.
Match Odds:

Low Scoring?

The concern for Craig Shakespeare, who won his first six matches as manager before going three without success, is where the goals will come from as Leicester are the lowest scorers of the sides left in the Champions League, notching just ten goals.

Under 2.5 goals is 3/4 on (Bet Victor) and there is sure to be plenty of interest in that bet as it has paid out in seven of Atletico's nine Champions League games this term.

Griezmann To Strike Again

Simeone's side have only conceded three goals during a ten-match unbeaten run in all competitions but they have scored in nine of those and they can take advantage of a Leicester defence shorn of the suspended Robert Huth, while captain Wes Morgan is an injury doubt.

The pace of Antoine Griezmann will be a real threat on the counter-attack, with the Frenchman having notched four goals in his last five away games for Atletico. Griezmann, who scored the only goal in the first leg of this Leicester v Atletico tie last week, is 7/2 to be first goalscorer or 5/4 to score at anytime (Coral) and he is well worth backing here as he has notched five in his past six Champions League appearances.
