Leicester 3-1 to stun Atletico in quarter-finals

Another La Liga side will stand in the way of Leicester and their bid for a Champions League fairytale after the Foxes were drawn to play Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals.

Leicester, who beat Seville in the last round, are 3-1 with Hills to qualify for the semi-finals but it's a 2-9 shot that their dream will die at the last-eight stage.

The Foxes have been shoved out to 40-1 to win the Champions League and it is sure to be a difficult test against an Atletico side who have been runners-up in two of the past three years.

Atletico, who will be at home in the first leg, are 6-1 to go one better this season and the task facing Leicester in Madrid is shown by Paddy Power's match betting.

Diego Simeone's side are 2-9 to take an advantage to the King Power Stadium, while Leicester can be backed at 11-1 for an upset at the Vicente Calderon.  

Barcelona, who are 11-4 favourites to lift the Champions League in Cardiff, take on Juventus and the tie of the round sees Bayern Munich go head-to-head with Real Madrid in a battle of two genuine European super clubs.

Hills make Bayern 8-13 to reach the semi-finals and Barca are 2-5 to overcome Juventus.

The goals line is likely to be high when free-scoring Monaco clash with fellow gung-ho outfit Borussia Dortmund.

It looks set to be a thrilling last eight and Manchester United will be hoping to be dining at the top table next season with the Europa League offering a golden ticket for Jose Mourinho back into the Champions League.

United were drawn to play Anderlecht in the quarter-finals and they are 6-4 with BetBright to lift the trophy in a tournament which does not appear to have much in the way of strength in depth.

Mourinho's men can be backed at 1-8 with bet365 to progress past their Belgian opponents with Anderlecht at 5-1, while Lyon are seen as the biggest threat to United winning the Europa League at 3-1. The French club meet Besiktas in the quarter-finals.

Champions League quarter-final draw - Atletico Madrid v Leicester, Borussia Dortmund v Monaco, Bayern Munich v Real Madrid, Juventus v Barcelona. The first legs will be played on April 11-12 and the second legs on April 18-19.

Man Utd v Burton

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • United have conceded in just one of five league games
Expert verdict
Holders Manchester United have started the season in excellent form and the title-chasing Red Devils should have little trouble overcoming poor-travelling Burton in the third round of the League Cup at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho fielded a strong team throughout last term’s competition, which saw his side oust Northampton, rivals Manchester City, West Ham, Hull and Southampton on their way to silverware. Burton have won just two of their last 12 league away games.
