Grant Wahl on Leicester City, Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo
Tuesday March 8th, 2016

Following another weekend in which Leicester City not only remained in first place but extended its lead atop the Premier League table, it's time to wonder: Are the Foxes finally the favorites to pull off the unthinkable and will they be able to handle the growing pressure as each week passes?

SI's Grant Wahl answers those very questions while trying to come up with an American sports equivalent for the unlikely EPL front-runners on Tuesday's SI Now.

Elsewhere in Europe, Real Madrid is all but out of La Liga's title race but still maintains aspirations at an 11th Champions League title. How has Zinedine Zidane fared in his first stint as manager? What's Cristiano Ronaldo's future with the club?

Finally, Wahl looks ahead to the U.S. women's national team's SheBelieves Cup finale against Germany, a rematch of their dramatic 2015 Women's World Cup semifinal. On the heels of 1-0 wins over England and France, can the reigning world champions finish off a sweep of the three European powers Wednesday night?
