Listen carefully. Can you hear it? That's the sound of the Champions League theme tune getting turned up in the background.

After months of focusing on domestic affairs, the attention of pub-loving football fans is set to shift to the glamour of Europe's premier competition this week.

Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City all harbour ambitions of winning the trophy. Can they do it and can screening the games bring more people through your doors? We got some predictions from BT Sport pundit Robbie Savage.

 

Three Premier League teams are in the last 16 but how many do you think will go through?
That's tricky. If Arsenal had been playing Bayern at the time the draw was made I would have said they would but their form has faltered a little since. Monaco should not be underestimated with Falcao scoring goals for fun but I fancy Manchester City to progress.
Sevilla have great European pedigree and have won the Europa League the last three seasons. They have a tight stadium and Leicester will find it hard there but they will fancy their chances at home. I think two out of the three Premier League teams will go through.


As a former Leicester player, what has the impact of the club's success been like for the city?
I lived in the area for seven or eight years and I still know a lot of people there. It has been fantastic for them being champions and the excitement in the city has been incredible.

If the dream ends for them here, how will they cope with going back to what looks like a relegation fight?
I think they are in a relegation scrap but I don't think they will go down. They have shown the character they have got in the squad to get out of trouble before and then do what they did last season, so I think they will be OK.

 

 

Premier League teams haven't fared brilliantly in the Champions League in recent years. Why do you think that is?
Well, Man City got to the semi-finals under Pellegrini last year but then when they got there they didn't seem to really give it a go against Real Madrid. They have beaten Barcelona this year, though, which they hadn't done before, and that will give them huge belief. Leicester did brilliantly in the group stages, going longer than any other newly qualified team has before without conceding. Arsenal won their group this year, so the signs are that things are improving.

 

Do you think one of them can go all the way?
For a winner it's hard to look beyond Real Madrid and Barcelona.

 

 

Looking at the Premier League, do you think three of the teams that qualify could be different this year?
Quite possibly. As a football fan I want to see Liverpool and Manchester United in there and they are both going well. Chelsea look nailed on. The natural order has come back with the big six but two of them are going to have to miss out. Spurs are going well at the moment. It's so hard to call but it could be that City and Arsenal miss out.

 

Who do you think will be the next British club to win the Champions League?
I'll give you a place. I think they'll come from Manchester. Mourinho and Guardiola have both got that experience of winning it and they are building their teams now. I'm not sure which one but I think it will be one of those two.
