Leicester City vs Sevilla

Leicester City vs Sevilla – Leicester City hosts Sevilla at the King Power Stadium on 14th March, Tuesday in the second leg of their Round of 16 UEFA Champions League tie as they strive to overcome the one-goal deficit from the first leg.

Sevilla had taken a two-goal lead at home, but Leicester City pegged back a crucial away goal although Claudio Ranieri was sacked soon after the game. With Leicester City struggling for survival in the English Premier League, this Champions League fixture is likely to be the last one at the King Power Stadium for a long time.

Leicester City had topped Group G while Sevilla came second in Group H in the Champions League group stages.

Team News

Nampalys Mendy is sidelined through an injury while Islam Slimani is listed as a doubt. Sevilla will be without the injured Benoit Tremoulinas and Michael Krohn-Dehli.

Leicester City Possible Starting Lineup: Kasper Schmeichel, Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan, Robert Huth, Christian Fuchs, Riyad Mahrez, Steven Ndidi, Daniel Drinkwater, Marc Albrighton, Shinji Okazaki, Jamie Vardy.

Sevilla Possible Starting Lineup: Sergio Rico, Mariano, Gabriel Mercado, Adil Rami, Sergio Escudero, Vicente Iborra, Steven N’Zonzi, Pablo Sarabia, Samir Nasri, Vitolo, Stevan Jovetic.

“It will be a special occasion at the King Power. The atmosphere will be electric. I’m expecting the team to take the momentum from the two results, to take the confidence they’ve gained from that and really play on the front foot.

That’s not saying we’ll be open as we know Seville have some very, very world-class players. But it makes for a very interesting game because of the away goal.”

– Craig Shakespeare, Leicester City.
