Will Leicester win the Champions League? The Soccer Special panel discuss
Last Updated: 15/03/17 8:22am
After Leicester City booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals, the Soccer Special pundits assess the Foxes' chances of lifting the trophy.
Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton sealed a dramatic 3-2 aggregate victory over 10-man Sevilla, as Craig Shakespeare guided the Premier League champions into the last eight of Europe's elite club competition for the first time.
Thoughts now turn to Friday's quarter-final draw, with blockbuster ties against European heavyweights Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich a possibility.
But what about Leicester's long-term aspirations in the competition? Will they follow their title-winning season by being crowned champions of Europe?
Soccer Special guests Tony Cottee, Paul Walsh, Iain Dowie and Tony Gale discuss...
"With an awful lot of luck, they could. I don't think they will, I really don't. I'm just so pleased because it's a special club and I'm really pleased for the fans that the journey they started last season has continued.
"I don't think they will win it, but can they win it? Anyone can win the Champions League, we've seen that in seasons gone by."
"No, they can't win it. They are an improving team that's getting their mojo back but in terms of that top table of European football, I don't think they are good enough.
"However, they have played ever so well and it's been a great return to form in the last couple games.
"In the Champions League, you need a few things to go your way and they've had a couple of things go their way against Sevilla."
"I thought they had already won it by getting to the last 16. I think it's an incredible achievement to get to the last eight.
"The answer to the question is no. I hate to say that because it would be incredible, but they can't."
"I don't think they can win it. Everything went their way last season in terms of other teams being involved in European competitions and injuries and suspensions to other teams. It's all going their way again this season in this competition.
"They got a great draw and then caught a Sevilla side that had had a few poor results recently. But if they get one of the big, and there are no little boys left, it could be difficult for Leicester."
