18 months ago it would have sounded like fantasy, but tonight Leicester City take on Atlético Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals. It’s the biggest game in the club’s history, but will it signal the end of their fairytale journey or be another night to remember?
In their way stands an Atlético Madrid side who have reached the final of the competition in 2 of the last 3 seasons, and a manager who has his eyes firmly set on finally bringing that famous old trophy to the Vicente Calderón Stadium.
All logic suggests that the Spanish side will triumph, but does recent form back that assumption up?
|ATTACKING FORM AVERAGES|
|DEFENSIVE FORM AVERAGES|
Our Ultimate Form Guide (above) suggests that whilst Leicester aren’t quite performing as well as their hosts over the last 10 games, the chasm isn’t quite as wide as one may expect.
In attack, the Foxes have scored more goals and taken more of their chances than Atléti, with an impressive 20% conversion rate. Should a chance for an away goal fall their way, Leicester look capable on current form of taking it.
In defense, however, Atlético Madrid are performing significantly better than Leicester, with an average of less than 1 goal against per game. They have 5 clean sheets in their last 10 and will be confident of adding to that tally.
Overall, Atléti still look the more likely to grab victory, but if Leicester were to grab a result from the game it may not be quite the surprise many would think.
