Leicester City vs. Sevilla in UEFA Champions League

This Arsenal duo deserve to be banned for the rest of the season says ex-Gunner

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare insists that his side have a "great opportunity" to progress from their Champions League last 16 tie with Sevilla.

Though outplayed in the first leg, Leicester snatched a precious away goal through Jamie Vardy and Sampaoli believes the spirit that carried them to the league title last season has since returned.

However, when the Foxes then followed that win up with another 3-1 home victory, this time in a huge clash with fellow relegation battlers Hull City, the balance seemingly started to tip away from Ranieri.

Sevilla looked magnificent in the first leg of this match-up with the 2-1 score line not serving justice to how good Sevilla performed. We've seen what they've been about over the last few years with winning the (European) trophies.

Wins over Liverpool and Hull have restored confidence which was fragile under Ranieri.

The 53-year-old has been a part of the Leicester City backroom staff for eight years, over two spells, working under Nigel Pearson and Claudio Ranieri and has forged strong bonds with numerous club's senior players.

"We always knew the team would be in good hands when we asked him to take charge a fortnight ago", Leicester vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said on the club's website.

He has initiated the positive response we hoped change would bring'. "We did score so we have all the chance to go through in the next game at home".

"We've seen that they are a very hard team to beat at home", Sevilla's French defender Adil Rami said in Monday's news conference.

Defensive midfielder Nampalys Mendy will miss the Sevilla game due to a knee injury.

The Foxes used a 10-day gap in the fixture list to hold a training camp in Dubai ahead of tonight's return leg at the King Power Stadium. While the sacking of Ranieri was highly controversial receiving global attention, there is no denying that Craig Shakespeare has made a difference on this team so far.
