Atletico Madrid vs Leicester by Keysersoze
I think this will be the end of Leicester dreams. They managed to eliminate Sevilla in the round of 16 but today they will have much tougher opponent. Leicester has raiser their level of play in the last month, but still they are very poor away from home. They lost 5 of last 6 away matches, this week they lost to Everton 4-2. In Sevilla they lost 2-1, but in that game they was lucky as Sevilla could score at least 2 goals more. For this game Leicester will also miss their captain Morgan and Mendy.
Atletico on the hand come after 1-1 played against Real Madrid where they showed a good play. In Champions league they are playing on higher level that in Primera this season. They managed to win in Leverkusen 4-2, while in the group phase they beat Bayern Munich. I think they will try to secure their place into the semifinal with a convincing win here which looks very possible to me. They are without some important missings, only Vrsaljko out from regular players, while Gameiro and Gaitan has recovered from their injuries.
All in all I think Atletico will dominate in this game, quality and experience in this kind of matches are on their side, also home advantage could have a huge effect here so I think Atletico will cover -1.5 handicap.
Here is possible line ups
Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Luis, Savic, Godin, Juanfran, Koke, Gabi, Niguez, Carrasco, Torres, Griezman
Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Benalouane, Huth, Fuchs, Mahrez, Ndidi, Drinkwater, Albrighton, Okazaki, Vardy.
