Leicester vs Sevilla

Leicester City had sacked their manager Claudio Ranieri after their last game against Sevilla losing 2-1; and since then have turned around their season a little winning 3-1 against Liverpool and 3-1 against Hull City to show that they have started playing open football again and are looking to find goals. Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez have come back to life and managed to score the goals that has helped them take those crucial 6 points to give them a temporary 3 point cushion with a game in hand to give them a breather in the Premier League. While Premier League survival is key; these Leicester players will come out and play open football with the aim of securing more money moves in the off season.

Sevilla have been quite busy since that encounter against Leicester winning 2 games against Bilbao and Betis while drawing against Deportivo Alaves and Leganes. Sevilla have seen bit of exhaustion coming through which could see them go on their run of conceding goals like they have done in 3 out of the 4 games since the first leg. Sevilla have kept only 4 clean sheets in their last 13 games overall, but have managed to find the back of the net in 12 out of those games. Sevilla away from home have 5 out of their last 7 away games, which will leave things quite open. In terms of scoring they have done a great job sharing the load among Jovetic, Nasri, Vitolo, Vietto, Ben Yeder, Vasquez and Iborra.
Leicester have scored in 8 out of 11 home games and conceded in 10 of them, Sevilla have scored in 11 out of 13 away games while keep only 3 clean sheets; suggesting both teams should score a lot of goals especially since its a second leg, and Leicester have the one away goal.
