Leicester City v Sevilla

The Foxes are 2-1 down going into the game.

Captain Wes Morgan and winger Marc Albrighton were the goalscorers for the reigning Premier League champions and neither could really believe what had happened when speaking with BT Sport after the triumph.

Sevilla, who had not conceded an away goal in this season's competition, piled forward in the closing minutes but Champions League debutants Leicester held firm on a tumultuous night.

Sevilla almost broke the deadlock inside four minutes, but Kasper Schmeichel produced a fine save at his near post to deny Samir Nasri.

Little credit was initially afforded to caretaker boss Craig Shakespeare, who had served as Ranieri's assistant throughout his time at the club, for the dramatic and immediate reversal of fortunes.

The Foxes ultimately lost the first-leg tie 2-1, but could have suffered a heavier defeat if it wasn't for Kasper Schmeichel's heroics in the Leicester goal - he pulled off a penalty save and a number of other fine stops.

Leicester doubled their advantage on the night and edged ahead on aggregate moments later as Albrighton latched on to a poor clearance and fired home from the edge of the area.

It will be a special occasion and the atmosphere will be electric.

The English champions overcame a 2-1 deficit from the opening leg, outplaying the favoured Spaniards to earn a convincing victory and advance to the quarter-finals.

Sevilla began the second half with more goal and came within a coat of paint of equalizing in the 54th minute when Sergio Escudero's dipping effort from 30 meters beat Schmeichel but struck the underside of the crossbar.

However, Drinkwater has revealed the first-team players are certain who they want in charge for next season.

The pace of the game never let up throughout the first half.

A penalty from Paulo Dybala was enough for the win, with Porto having Uruguayan Maximiliano Pereira sent-off for hand-ball in the incident that led to the spot-kick.

After Vardy was tripped at the corner of the area, Mahrez swung over a left-footed free kick and Morgan stuck out a foot at the far post to divert the ball into the net and become the first Jamaican to score in the Champions League.
