Leicester City booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after seeing past perennial Europa League winners Sevilla, progressing further in their maiden European campaign than Arsenal have in seven years. The Foxes are 25/1 to win the Champions League this season, and will now face either Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, AS Monaco/Manchester City, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid/Bayer Leverkusen, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.

For Arsenal, it’s seven straight years of last-16 disappointment, their latest of which saw them lose 10-2 on aggregate to a Bayern Munich not considered to be at their best this season. The German Bundesliga giants weren’t good enough to win their group prior to the knockouts but made light work of a fragile Arsenal side enduring one of their most disappointing campaigns as things stand.
