Leicester vs Sevilla
Date: Sunday, 31 July 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
Leicester had to settle for an 8th place finish the last season and as a result will not take part in any of the European competitions this year. Meanwhile Sevilla finished 4th in the Spanish league the previous year and did deliver some impressive performances along the way.
After several seasons it was finally an opportunity for Sevilla to secure at least a second-place finish in the Spanish league in 2021- 22. The reason being, heavyweights Barcelona and Atletico Madrid were going through some serious issues.
However, they failed to take advantage of these opportunities and had to witness Barca & Atleti finish 2nd and 3rd in the league respectively.
But it deserves appreciation that they had lost just 4 times all through the campaign and they had also let in the least number of goals of all the teams in the competition. In fact, they had conceded just 30 goals from their total 38 matches.
It will also pain them to remember that they missed out on a second-place finish by just 3 points. They will be determined to make amends for this miss and will be eager to start on a high note right away.
Meanwhile it seems that the English top flight will be insanely competitive this time around and if the Foxes are not careful they might not qualify for Europe even this coming season.
Expect a fierce encounter between the 2 squads this weekend and as a result anticipate goals to come from either end of the pitch as well.
