The round of 16 match between Sevilla and Leicester is one of the most important of any other team still left in the competition. Even though neither team is a favorite to make it to the semi-finals, they are the arguably the last two sides left in the tournament with their very own style of play. Watching teams like Bayern, Barcelona, Real Madrid and the other big names still left in the Champions League is amazing, but it can also be repetitive, which is why tonight should be a real good one.
Both Sevilla and Leicester were counted out by so many in the earlier rounds, but somehow they have made it this far. Leicester are on a terrible streak in the Premier League, not having won a match since the beginning of 2017. This could be the jump start to the rest of their season that they so desperately need.
Sevilla is an excellent team in a very hard top flight with Real Madrid and Barcelona constantly in first and second place in La Liga. Now in third place in the table and coming off a win against Eibar over the weekend, they are in an excellent spot to move on in the Champions League and could make it a lot further into the final stages. Sevilla are an excellent team and if anyone deserves to win tonight, they do. Constantly living in the shadows of Real and Barca surely is difficult for players and fans alike and taking a title in the biggest European club tournament would mean so much.
