Leicester City vs Chelsea
FA Cup Quarterfinal Match
LEI vs CHE MATCH PREVIEW:
This is an intriguing tie that pits the last two champions of England against each other as Leicester City host Chelsea in an FA Cup quarterfinal match at King Power Stadium.
Both teams are coming off from contrasting experiences into this match. While Leicester City decided to soak in some sunshine in Marbella, Chelsea were made to pack their bags from Champions League after Lionel Messi and Barcelona thumped the Blues 3-0 at Camp Nou.
That leaves Chelsea with only FA Cup to aim for this season, while a top-4 finish in the Premier League definitely engraved high on Antonio Conte's to-do list this season.
Chelsea's season could still be saved if they finish in the top-4, and win the FA Cup trophy. So expect Antonio Conte to name a strong XI against the 2016 Premier League Champions.
The Foxes, on the other hand, are on a four-game winning streak heading into this match and moved to 8th in the table after thumping West Brom 4-1 at Hawthorns. They are 8 points behind 6th placed Arsenal, and with Arsene Wenger giving Europa League utmost priority, there are chances that Leicester may snatch sixth place from the Gunners.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Leicester City are a very dangerous team, in particular at home. So Chelsea need to be on their toes in the match. Having said that, the game will depend on the tactics of both the managers and which team wants the win more.
The Blues need this win very badly as some tough fixtures are waiting for them in the wings, and which will shape the destiny of their standing in the table, come the end of the season.
But we are backing Leicester to add more misery on Antonio Conte's men and sniff out a win in this quarterfinal match.
