Leicester City and their improbable rise in the Champions League

Leicester City have had a couple of seasons that will not only go down in the club’s history, but it will go down in football history.

They achieved the impossible last season by winning the Premier League against all odds, an achievement that delighted the entire footballing world.

Jamie Vardy, N’golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez all made massive names for themselves with impressive performances consistently throughout the season.

Despite losing N’golo Kante to Chelsea in the summer, Leicester managed to keep their team mostly intact. This will have given the fans a lot of hope going into the 2016/17 season, and Champions League football to look forward.

However, to the surprise of most of the footballing world, Leicester had a bit fall from grace in the Premier League which led to the club parting ways with Claudio Ranieri.

Leicester are currently 7/1 to get relegated this season. They do have a decent gap between themselves and the drop zone, and taking recent form into consideration it looks like they may just about steer themselves clear.

Since parting ways with Claudio Ranieri, Leicester have put a fair few impressive performances to drag themselves away from the bottom three.

Even though their Premier League campaign has been considerably underwhelming, they are still playing for another Cinderella story – this time in the Champions League.

They sailed through the group stages finishing top of Group G.

Not many would have given them a chance to get any further in the competition after they were drawn against Sevilla apart from this football tipster.

After losing the away leg things looked relatively bleak for The Foxes, although they had an away goal to inspire hope.

Shakespeare took charge of his first Champions League game when the two sides met at the King Power Stadium.

Goals from Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton gave Leicester the 3-2 lead on aggregate and sealed their place in the next round.

After Manchester City lost out to A.S. Monaco, Leicester are the last representative of the Premier League remaining.

They are now 25/1 to win the Champions League with Bet on Brazil as the dream continues for The Foxes. For more Champions League Tips, click here.
