Leicester's Vardy ends goal drought in 2-1 loss at Sevilla

Leicester continued to try and remain compact to keep Sevilla at bay, but they again had to rely on Schmeichel on 22 minutes as he got down well to prevent Sergio Escudero's shot from the edge of the area finding the bottom corner.

"They are suffering down at the bottom, but we shouldn't forget that last season they achieved something of real value when they won the Premier League".

Leicester, who are without striker Islam Slimani as he struggles to overcome a groin injury, face a tough task against a side that are experienced European campaigners. Their opponents tonight - Sevilla are trying to replicate their heroics of Europa League into the Champions League. Leicester will take heart from Jamie Vardy returning to goalscoring form, and hope that it can translate into their Premier League campaign.

Juventus put themselves in a fantastic position to qualify for the next round of the Champions League on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win away to Porto. We need one match like this.

Speculation over Ranieri's job security continues to dog their bid to avoid becoming the first reigning top-flight English champions to be relegated since Manchester City in 1938.

"Sevilla could be the turning point, it could be everything", Leicester's manager said. I want the gladiators, I want the soldiers, I want my players.

Sevilla coach said in his interview that while Leicester City's achievement previous year was an incredible feat, they need to live in the present and not the past.

Stefan Jovetic leads the line for Jorge Sampaoli's side - preferred to Wissam Ben Yedder and Luciano Vietto - while Mariano and Clement Lenglet start in defence in the absence of Gabriel Mercado and Nicolas Pareja.

However, up stepped Jamie Vardy on 73 minutes to give the travelling Foxes fans something to cheer about.

"They are good owners and will try to look after him the best they can, and I would like to say they would stay with him, but who knows what will happen".

That was the game won and the hosts went looking for a third which would likely kill off the tie but they were stunned when Vardy pulled a goal back with 17 minutes left.

Online Streaming: The live streaming of the match will be available on Ten Sports Live in India nad on BT Sport Live Screaming in the UK.
