Leicester City all set for Europe after claiming Premier League crown and bet365 offer 100/1 that they win Champions League
Leicester City to win the Champions League? It was the stuff of dreams twelve months ago although the Foxes have qualified for this competition and could take Europe by storm next term.
If Atletico Madrid are able to prosper in this competition, then there is every reason for Leicester to do the same with a similar brand of football. Low-possession and high-impact football could yet see them become the surprise package in the Champions League.
Bet365 offer 100/1 that Leicester land the Champions League crown, with Claudio Ranieri hoping to keep together the nucleus of the squad who enjoyed an incredible title success after Monday’s 2-2 draw between Tottenham and Chelsea.
Leicester will go into Pot 1 for next season’s Champions League which means a favourable draw and they won’t have any fear about who their opponents happen to be.
Indeed, Barcelona and Bayern Munich haven’t exactly been fearsome this season and Leicester surely have a decent chance of progressing to the last sixteen stage and beyond.
Whether City play in Europe with the services of Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante is anyone’s guess, with the Algerian and Frenchman likely to be the subject of some outlandish bids this summer.
