Leicester City will hope to prolong their Champions League adventure by beating Sevilla at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Foxes lost the first leg of their last-16 tie 2-1 in Spain but thanks to Jamie Vardys away goal they need just a 1-0 win to progress to the quarter-finals.

New manager Craig Shakespeare, who was promoted from his position as assistant in the wake of Claudio Ranieris shock dismissal last month, had only one new injury to report ahead of this evenings game.

Papy [Nampalys] Mendy had a knock on his knee a couple of days ago, the 53-year-old told the clubs official website.

Hell be struggling. He may be back for the weekend but hell definitely miss tomorrows match.

Mendy joins Molla Wague on the sidelines; the defender, on loan from Udinese, has made just one appearance for the club thanks in partto a dislocated shoulder but is registered in the Champions League squad.

Leicester will hope that the renowned atmosphere at their home ground can spur them on to what would be an unlikely victory over the La Liga outfit.

Having been on good form since Shakespeares appointment, they also have the advantage of not having played in over a week, their last fixture against Hull City on March 4 ending in a 3-1 win.

The Foxes must raise their levels once again if they are to defeat the Andalusians, who currently sit third in their domestic league and have already beaten both Madrid sides this term.

Whilst Sevilla are favourites to go through, the Premier League champions have experience in upsetting the odds and will look to capture the spirit of last seasons shock title win on what is sure to be a memorable occasion for fans young and old.
