Leicester will kick off the Premier League season against Brentford on August 7th, whereas Sevilla will begin their campaign on the 12th against Osasuna.
Leicester City will be keen to end their pre-season preparations on a high when they face Spanish side Sevilla. The match will hold significance for both sides since this is the final time the English side would be able to experiment with the squad before the season begins. On the other hand, the Spaniards will be desperate to bounce back from an embarrassing defeat to another English side in their last game. Both sides have had a mixed run of form in the pre-season, with not all results going their way. Either way, they will have another chance to sort things out before the season commences.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will kick off the Premier League season against Brentford on August 7th, whereas Sevilla will begin their campaign on the 12th of next month against Osasuna. The Foxes had a forgettable season last time around, as they could only manage an eight-place finish in the league. It means Leicester will have no European football this season. On the other hand, Sevilla finished fourth in La Liga last campaign. However, they would be coming into this match on the back of a 6-0 hammering by Arsenal. Hence, the Spanish side will be hoping for a response against Leicester.
