Leicester City (1) vs. (2) Sevilla: Champions League Last 16 Second Leg – Match Preview

Leicester City need to overturn a 2-1 deficit in the second leg of their Champions League tie with Sevilla.

Sevilla dominated the first leg in Spain, but only hold a one goal advantage, thanks to a vital Jamie Vardy away goal.

Leicester City recovered from a goal down to beat Hull City in their last fixture over a week ago as they continued to move away from the relegation zone.

Craig Shakespeare has been confirmed as manager of the club until the end of the season after back to back wins in a caretaker position.

Sevilla missed the chance to close the gap on Barcelona as they were held at home by lowly Leganes.
