Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has a tough job on his hands as Leicester City has been pitted alongside Atletico Madrid in the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League after Friday’s draw.
Craig Shakespeare’s side defied the odds to get to the last eight stage and while they are very much the underdogs to progress to the last four, last season’s Premier League champions will still believe that anything is possible on the road to Cardiff in May.
Despite Sevilla’s exit, La Liga still most participants of the final eight with Barcelona and reigning champions Real Madrid joining the aforementioned Atlético in the next round with varying degrees of stress and excitement.
Meanwhile, a repeat of the 2015 final sees Juventus take on Barcelona, while Borussia Dortmund and Monaco will be delighted to have drawn each other in the last eight and avoid the big three.
