The balls are out of the pots and in reward for seeing off Sevilla in the last 16, Leicester City will be facing further, stiffer Spanish competition in the quarter-finals of the Champions League – namely, Atletico Madrid.

According to the odds at Betway, the reigning Premier League champions are unsurprisingly massive 33/1 outsiders to win the whole thing outright, largely because they’d have to dispatch several of Europe’s elite clubs to get their hands on the big cup.

Speaking of, the draw has proffered forth a tantalising smorgasbord of stellar clashes, with Bayern Munich pitted against Real Madrid and Juventus set to do battle with Barcelona.

Borussia Dortmund vs Monaco

Juventus vs Barcelona

Not that we’re overly confident, but Atleti arguably represent the most beatable opponents Leicester could have hoped to be drawn against.

Anybody out there give the Fantastic Foxes the remotest chance of vanquishing Diego Simeone’s Rojiblanco battalion over the course of two legs?

    Not really mate, but I’m still looking forward to the games!

    At least Leicester play at home in the 2nd game. Should be a massive atmosphere, just like it was earlier this week. I watched it on TV and when Schmeichel saved the penalty you could just FEEL the euphoria.

    But yeah, Atletico are a bit special. They won’t be rolled over like Sevilla were at the King Power. Leicester should defend, defend, defend in Madrid. If they go for the jugular, they’ll be slaughtered.

    Then take it back to the King Power and go hell for leather!

    Fair play to them, they’ve managed to recapture our imaginations after all, even after all that hoo-ha over their league “efforts”.

    I think the mattress men are the worst possible team for Leicester because they soak up pressure like, well, mattresses, and Leicester are still best when they hit on the break. Either Dortmund or Monaco would have been better opponents because neither is a solid defensive team. Mis dos centavos.
