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 Vardy’s 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 Ranieri’s shock dismissal last month, had only one new injury to report ahead of this evening’s game.
“Papy [Nampalys] Mendy had a knock on his knee a couple of days ago,” the 53-year-old told the club’s official website.
“He’ll be struggling. He may be back for the weekend but he’ll definitely miss tomorrow’s match.”
Mendy joins Molla Wague on the sidelines; the defender, on loan from Udinese, has made just one appearance for the club thanks in part to 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 Shakespeare’s 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 season’s shock title win on what is sure to be a memorable occasion for fans young and old.
